    Hi All -

    Had a 2013 Tundra 4x4, but moved into a neighborhood with garages - TUNDRA TOO BIG! Swapped for a 2017 SR Tacoma Access Cab - JUST FITS! Working to upgrade it a little at a time...

    Welcome to the forum. I went from a Tundra to a 4Runner to finally a 17' TRD Sport Taco. Love mine.

    Hey there's only one spot left on a Tacoma Nation T Shirt group buy. Would be a great way to introduce yourself.

    Here's the link to the thread:

    You have to be careful washing some of these cars and trucks. I washed my 911 wrong once and now I'm stuck with a Boxster.

    Hi all -

    I wish my SR was a little LOWER, but there is absolutely NO GIVE when it comes to buying a LOWER PROFILE tire - Dealers say the 245/75-16s are the ONLY SIZE that will work! I want something like 255 or 265/60s or 65s to lower the truck for easier entry. ANYBODY have a a solution? ALSO, this dash lights issue is STUPID! The 2nd position is the daytime running lights but that does NOT turn on the "TAIL LIGHTS." so NO dash lights. I REALLY don't want to run my headlights all the time. Should be a jumper option under there. EVEN FULL BRIGHT with the dimmer switch isn't bright enough in the daytime anyway! GURRRR!

    Quit talking to dealers (whoever they are) and use the tire calculator.

    Order the size you want, within reason, verifying that your new size will fit the wheel properly.

    Or you can trade for a 5 lug and be very comfy.
