    I saw one of those for the first time not too long ago. They're pretty sweet, but like Will already mentioned, they're huge. I guess it really depends on if you really need a truck that big.

    I wish those wheels had a 5x114.3 bolt pattern. :eek:

    thanks for your opinions guys, not really trails,i will mostly be using it for hauling and snowboarding trips and motocross trips thats why i want the crewmax lots of room in the cab. the only thing that sucks is that i have bought all these things for my tacoma that i will have to sell if i do get this truck

    still saving... :(
    They're nice trucks but yeah I agree probably way to big for trails. Plus I hope you have a nice size step stool to work on them. Lol I'm in the process of replacing a VVTi actuator on a 5.7L one at work and holy crap I can't hardly reach anything without laying in the engine bay, with a 2 step stool. Lol Its on a lift with all the wheels off and lowered as low as I can get it too. But from what I've seen actually driving them, I love them just to much truck for my needs right now. Plus I couldn't afford the one I want. I'm still in the process of getting my down payment for my taco. Lol

    i wuld deff trade the tacoma for the rock warrior TRD.. in my opinion the tundra brings alot more power than the tacoma.. but other opinion is u see alot more tacomas on the road than u do tundras.. its a 50/50...

    I like it, BUT I love the SPORT better. Still wouldn't trade it in for that though. The Tacoma is just perfect.

    Good choice on keeping the Taco. Unless you really NEED all of the extra towing and hauling capacity, I think a Tundra would be a PITA as a daily driver, as would most of the new 1/2 tons. Personally, I think the Tacoma is darn near perfect in size.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    It's a cool truck, but I'd stick with the Taco.



    I also see the new Tundra TRD sport. That looks cool, too.

    What's so special about it?

    How can you possibly call that a ROCK WARRIER when it doesn't even have a locker?

    I looked and didn't see one listed for it.

    Too big imo. Hell the new tacomas are (at least imo) just on the edge of too big, I liked the gen 1 size.
