    i just got my 2011 double cab trd off road and I will never go back to a nissan again. I didn't know anything about tacomas except that when I went to get rid of my titan everyone I talked to with a tacoma kept telling me to get one and now I am glad I listened to the advice.

    Still don't know anything about tacomas and but I am here to learn...

    Welcome!
    I too upgraded from a Nissan. I used to drive a 2007 Titan with a 6" lift.

    I miss the power of the Titan sometimes, but I sure don't miss the poor turning radius, gas mileage, etc. Been really happy with the switch and I think you will be too.

    It was a silver 2008 king cab SE had the floor shifter. I averaged around 14 but I get stuck in traffic a fair bit.
    I did little stuff to it like exhaust, wet okole, hid, Bluetooth, rhino lining. So glad I got rid of it...

    Welcome and either stay away from this site or hide your wallet. I had my old Tacoma for 12 years and maybe only spent 500 in mods over that time. This truck I've had for 8 months and have already spent about 1,500. I found this site right before I got the new truck.

    Welcome from GA! I test drove a Titan just before I bought my Tacoma. I liked the ride and power, but the dealer wasn't willing to deal. IMO, I got what I needed for $12K less.
    Enjoy your new truck. Mods in 3...2...1...
