    So I just recently paid my truck off and was looking at new tacomas when I saw a 2006 Toyota tundra trd off road. It's a double cab with a short box in amazing condition has 42,000 km on it and they are asking 18,500 which is about what my trade in value is so would almost be a straight trade. I need a bigger truck with more room and rowing capacity.

    Any opinions on this? I love my Tacoma it's an awesome truck and wish I could keep it and buy this new one but doesn't make sense. Anyone else done this? Or thought a out it any opinions on the first gen tundras?

    i had a 2000 tundra and not a problem in the world from it. great truck wish i had never traded it in for the taco. she was a tank and would go anywhere i wanted her. for me MPG wasnt a big deal. if i sell my taco ill be getting another Tundra (older version).
