    New to Tacoma World. This is my first Tacoma but 3rd Toyota. I had a Tundra which somebody else must have really liked because they took it without asking and I never saw it again. Then went to 4Runner because the family had grown by one. I was missing having a truck so picked up a PreRunner which I always wanted. I would post a pic of the new PreRunner but not until I put the new rims and tires on. Tundra was the best vehicle I ever had. I hope I like the Tacoma as much..

    You'll miss the power the Tundra has but not the gas mileage it gets :)

    My dad has an 07 Double Cab and I love driving it but hate parking/reversing in it.

    I do miss the power but your right I was only getting about 10 miles to the gallon. It was a pain in the a$$ to find a parking spot in the world of Los Angeles compact parking spaces. It was comfortable on long trips though and you could just bully your way thru traffic when you wanted to.

    Said I would post some pics of my new Tacoma when I put some rims and tires on. I went with the silver FJ TRD 16 inch rims and 265/75/16 Yokahoma Geolander AT's. I wanted the Hankook DynaPro AT's which I had on my Tundra but I got talked into these by Brian from Discount Tire. I like the way they look on. Just need to tint the windows now.
