I totally understand. With only 50k on the 2010 RW, I didn't really want to trade it in. I actually thought about keeping it and getting the new one, but wasn't really able to come up with a reason as to how that would really work out logistically.
I looked back at the last oil change I did in April, I have only put 5k on it since then... Don't really drive much I guess.
I couldn't pass up the deal, plus dealer fubar issue just had me losing sleep and totally pissed off. Along with the fact that there was still an oil leak somewhere.
I just spent a bunch of moolah$ for theoretically the same truck with leather, a bunch of tech doo-daads, sunroof, color swap, and a full 38 gallons of fuel lmfao.
Really do like the Plat, don't get me wrong. Just will take some time to get used to it.
Quieter on the road, which is impressive, especially considering I added a ton of fattmat to my RW.
Exhaust is wayyyy quieter, even with the TRD duals, still way quieter. No drone at all in comparison. Not sure how people say it has bad drone. I did make my own exhaust with an Aero Turbine muffler though, droned some, less than the FJ with the AFE, but damn it sounded good, this new truck is too quiet.
Seats are comfy, but need to get position right, will take weeks to get that dialed in, along with the column/steering wheel too.
Audio system, meh. Not anywhere close to what I had, but whatever. I will likely eventually swap stuff once I put some money back where I took it from.
The 20" wheels. Those suck. Feel all the bumps. Hopefully the new larger tires absorb some of that, otherwise I wasted money buying them if I want to swap back to 18" or 17"'s.
Cruising on the highway, it's great. Other than expansion joints. Bed bounce is wayy worse than the RW was.
Auto climate control. Wtf. Why does it think I want my feet to roast but my hands to freeze at 7°. I don't automatically want sweaty ass feet. Have to manually turn it to feet/face or feet/dash, which is where it should automatically be at to be honest imo.
I do really love the auto dimming mirrors, not just the rearview, but the side mirrors too. Forgot how much I liked them on the LHS I had.
Heated seats are great. Can't get remote start installed till the 12th, so at least my ass will be warmer.
Can't use the sunroof yet, too cold. Also it is probably frozen shut. Dealership washed it, and brought it right out in the 14° that it was at the time. Everything froze up, wipers, mirrors, etc. Found out when I went to clean the windshield and had a 6" strip right in front of me that was just covered with frozen shitty watered down blue wiper juice, which froze as the heat was set to auto and my feet were roasting lolz.
That is it so far.
