    I have had 2 Tacoma's in the past and currently own a Tundra.

    The Tundra is great but I need to get a little smaller truck and going back to a Tacoma looks to be my best option.

    My wife who drove a Yukon could never get comfortable in my Tundra and now I need to teach my Daughter to drive and the Tundra is just to much for here.

    You have a great site and I got some great info here before registering.

    Thanks

    What model year Tundra? Because the current gen Tacoma is the same size as the previous gen Tundra. If you're driving a pre-2007 Tundra moving to a second gen Taco wouldn't downsize you at all. Would have to find a 1st gen Taco, which are becoming more and more scarce.

    Thanks for the heads up but my Tundra is an 08.

    I know the Tacoma is no small vehicle but it looks like a good compromise for my situation. I need to tow 5000 lbs and do some work with it and I my wife and daughter are both more comfortable with it.

    Thanks Again.
