    Hello all,
    In the military, here in Millington, TN. Just traded in the Tundra for another Tacoma, life long toyota guy here! Got rid of the beast for a more practical, Tacoma, '13 TRD Sport w/ 6spd. Had the dealer put short throw in prior to purchase. I am not new to Tacoma's, just the 2nd gen, I had a '99 that I should have never gotten rid of! Had 33" BFG with SAWs and all pro bumpers and sliders (great truck). Anyway, plans are as follows:
    Probable go with 5100's all around soon, small lift. (32-33" tires)
    Swap sport rims for a set of stock TRD ones.
    CAI
    TRD exhaust
    Possible bumpers later on.
    Trying to keep as much street worthy as I can so I can tow my FJ40 to the trail.
    Here's the tundra I no longer have the new Tacoma(night shot with the boats from the other evening) and the 40(lil red)
    Look forward to getting a ton of info off here, I used to be active on TTORA but didn't see as much stuff as this forum has.

    Thanks, The tundra's are great trucks, I did go through one transmission though, at about 55K, probably my fault for playing too rough but they fixed it under warranty, just took a month.
    It's just too much truck for my uses, on top of being huge! If I ever get around to needing to tow a lot or really often, I would probably get another one, or if they start producing them with diesel!

    yeah, it’s a lot of truck.

    the taco does everything i need and a lot more. i got the 5’ bed but if i need a bigger bed i can use one of the tundras, or our 7’x12’ trailer.
