    After much thought I traded my wonderful 2009 Base SR5 AC last night. It was not easy getting rid of such a great vehicle but I needed more towing for my boat and passenger capacity for my triplet grandchildren born two weeks ago......so I needed a backseat for future Pop Pop duty:D:D:D.

    I looked at all the full size trucks and settled on a well loaded leftover 2010 Nissan Titan SE 4X4. I was able to get 10,342 off the list with rebate and discount, plus they gave me a fair price for trade-in, 15K plus 900 savings in taxes.
    I've been driving small Toyota trucks since 1977 and this 2009 was my 5th one. Techically I still own my old 2004 Base SR5 AC that my son drives.

    Anyway thanks for all the good advice and reading the past few years. The only picture I have of my new Titan is attached, I meant to take better pictures today but the day got away from me so to speak.

    Take care everybody and I will drop in from time to time to drool over all the sweet trucks here.

    It was just pricing. I couldn't get a crew cab tundra for under 30K and that would be a stripped model. And frankly I don't care for the looks of the double cab......but I would have liked to have a crew cab tundra. I think the titan will fit the bill, but if it doesn't it can be replaced also..:)

    Good eye, you saw the tow mirrors. I now have 9100 lb towing capacity. They call the package premium utility now and it comes with a high-end stereo with 10 speakers...sounds fantastic.,,thanks

    thanks again everybody. The triplets (1 girl & 2 Boys) are doing great and our whole family is on a wonderful high since their birth. It is going to be quite a ride helping them grow.
