    What do you pay a month? Is that for a Tacoma or Tundra?

    Tacoma - 7yr loan at 12%. I could probably buy a Tundra right now and have a smaller payment.

    Yeah my 08 Taco was running me $310 a month at 2.64% for 6 yr, but needed something stronger to move to seattle from ms gulf coast and saw that my payment for $31k was only going to be $100 more I jumped on it. But like I said I wish I could get rid of this thing. My wife and I miss the Tacoma.

    Holy crap..You might as well trade up if you really want to bro, but fair warning if you read around. If you get rid of the Taco you will always want to go back...Also if you change your own oil the oil filter on the Tundra is under the Skid Plate under the engine pointed down at the ground. It's a bitch to get to.

    I try to do all of my own work/maintenance when possible. What reasons have you seen people would want to go back to a Tacoma?

    Just a a better truck. I mean don't get me wrong the interior and power of these things is awesome. They just aren't a Tacoma. It's too big for my wife and I. My uncle has one to and says he would rather go back to a tacoma cause they are easier to do maintenance on.

    I think the Tundra DC is almost 2ft longer than my Tacoma AC. Plus I like having ground clearance with decent overhead clearance. Wouldn't mind having the 380HP though.

    I can honestly say that I had more ground clearance in my Tacoma, but ys the 5.7 is a badass motor. Love when a mustang or rice burner pulls up next to me. Its awesome. My father in law thought his chevy 1500 was quick till he got in the Tundra and slammed it and was like HOLY SHIT!!!!

    I, too, have been toying with the idea of a new Tundra. Damn things are super expensive and the gas mileage *shite* ......but the comfort and the towing capability are what I am looking for....have to pay to play, right? I do love my Taco......it has been bullet proof althought after the new clutch now it is tought to get into first/second gear sometimes......not sure if it is the synchros (fluid was changed last year to synthetic)....might be time to start the hunt?????
    Anybody have any 411 on the changes for the 2014 Tundra? I would love to know what might be coming down the line. Surely the details have been worked out...the machinery and dies are probably being all put in place and production begins. Anyone with any early spy shots or details??????

    Anyone have any familiarity with Watt Automotive in American Fork, Utah or mytruckmax.com in Scottsdale, AZ....they are showing some beautiful lifted Tundras in their inventory.........not sure about the lifts, (6" and 7") etc., probably the same issues as the Taco.....just preliminarily looking.

    Last Friday night got a 2013 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Limited 4x4 for $40,500. With the trade in on my 2010 Tacoma my walk-out-the-door price was $31,700.

    I picked up a Tundra regular cab short box 4x4 TRD for 28,000. That is almost 8,000 less than the price of the Tacoma....
