    Just could not get used to the smaller interior after coming from an F150. I REALLY wanted to, but, oh well. Great truck, just not great for me at this time in my life.

    However, I did strip all the accessories off including a Leer topper, bed platform, wheel spacers, tube steps, soft rollup tonneau, etc... I'm located an hour east of St Louis. Here's the link to my ad on Craigslist. Hope this is allowed.

    Btw, had some good conversation on here. Enjoy your Tacomas and take care!

    I got a slightly used '18 F150 XLT Sport 4x4 supercrew, white with the 2.7. Only had 6k miles on it. I have a 28yr old severely autistic son who is about 6' tall and is with me 24/7. I'm a real estate appraiser and am in my truck a lot. That back seat in the Tacoma was just too cramped for him. I loved the truck. Just had to be practical.

    SPacers are vitamotor I think. Lift is still in the box. It'a a top-mount spacer for the front and a tapered block for the rear. Have new ubolts that go with it. Lifts the front and rear 1.5" which is all ya wanna do unless ya wanna jack with that ECGS bushing or whatever it's called.

    Thanks, I appreciate that! I've had several people over the years ask 'why don't ya put him in a home?' as there is a state facility in a town near us. I could NEVER do that. He is my world. I got custody of him and his brother who is 2 years younger, when I got divorced. They were 1 and 3 years old at that time. Wasn't easy. I even had a female judge during our proceedings! But guys NEVER think you can't get your kids when you get divorced. Seems like it's a given the kids always go with the mother. Well, that's enough of that soapbox...lol.

    Full size is definately better for taller folks. Glad you realized it wasnt going to work and got something that is better suited.
    Mpg is no good. However, the trade off will be that once I am full time in my travel trailer, I will get better mpg in the Tundra than I wouldve in the Tacoma. Plus, couldnt pass at what I paid.
