    What can I say, my brother bought a 2020 2 weeks ago and after a quick drive around the block I decided I had to have one. So this past Monday I decided to make a 4 hour drive to pick up a 20 White TRD OFF-ROAD 6MT. All I can say is WOW. I was coming from the full-size market with my last truck being a 2019 Ram 2500.

    Gratzs on the truck smart choice going manual .fyi normal behavior of the truck slow acceleration . Clunky transmission when shifting. These are just normal characteristics of the 6 spd manual . Welcome to TW.

    Quite a change from a 2500. I had a 2019 Ram 1500 that left a lot to be desired when it came to quality and it made me look for something else. I thought long and hard about my needs and it was time to get back to a mid-sized truck after a 20 year hiatus.

    You’re going to love how easy it is to drive that Tacoma around compared to a full size over the next few months, especially if you go off road. You might miss the torque and the large interior space here and there but if you’re like me, after close to a year, there’s just no way I could go back to full size.

    Heck, you could drop a Ram or any other full size in my driveway right now as an even swap and I wouldn’t blink and just say no thanks!

    Welcome to TW! Enjoy your new ride!

    Nice truck and welcome
    It's definitely nice coming from a full size. My company vehicle is a newer F150, it's nice, but just too big unless on the highway or towing.

    The 19 2500 was a beast. But recently put our boat up for sale so at that point there is ABSOLUTELY no reason for a 3/4 ton truck. I can say there isn’t much I’ve messed this far

    Welcome and excellent choices with the 6MT. Just remember, you can not spell Manual without Man.

    Bite me, or bit me.... a bit of a difference there. :)

    I was expecting a rant based on the title. Pleasantly surprised to see another happy customer. I’ve never owned a full size, though have driven them enough. Closest I had was my first gen Tundy which was a spectacular ‘little’ big truck. That one should have been a keeper but I got the car bug.

    Welcome to the Taco town, where the inmates are your wallet’s best frenemies.
