    Committed to a '10 Tundra DC. Just can't warm up to the Tacoma-too cramped for me, otherwise a great truck (or I wouldn't have bought it). Drove it back to back against my 2nd choice, the F150 the other night. I liked the Tundra far better. F150 interior may be a bit nicer, but I'm a Toyota guy and it just felt right.

    It's a width issue for me. The Taco is just confining. I'm 6' 200# so not huge, but I like some elbow room. Mainly will be used for traveling to my place in the mountains, hauling gear, kayaks, bird dogs, you get it.

    Maybe I'm weird but I won't buy a truck with any miles on it. This one is inbound, I'll get it freash off the carrier- hence no pics yet.

    Wife loves white, I'm okay with it too.

    good deal! My dad purchased an 07 Tundra when they first came out. He was quite skeptical about it since all of his previous trucks have been 2500's used on the farm, but I talked him into it anyway. Wouldn't you know it, he just traded his 07 in on a new 10'. With the torque coupled with that rearend and tranny, the think pulls better than any of his previous trucks, and it doesn't look or ride like a "farm truck"

    I'm not into the XD's, bull bar, mud grapplers and step bars. But Tundras are cool.

    Well thats one way to ruin a perfectly good Tundra. That thing would be WORTHLESS in the dirt. LT Tacoma will run circles around that.
