My Tundra was my first full size truck. Came from a tiny little VW GTi.
1) If you have kids or plan on having kids, get the Crew Max. The backseat is limo sized.
2) Don't waste money on navigation or rear seat DVD. Smartphone + mount + Waze/Google Maps/whatever is better and cheaper, and two iPad Minis/Kindle Fires/Android tablets is cheaper and no arguments.
3) Get used to just parking in the back of the lot. Easier to pull/back into spaces without cars on both sides.
4) If you get the Crew Max, and you crack the rear window on rainy days, the back seat passengers will get soaked when the rain rolls off the back of the cab and gets sucked in on top of them.
5) The "miles to empty" is very conservative. At 0 miles remaining to empty, you probably have 3-4 gallons left in the tank. That said, don't get cocky, and the last bit of fuel likely keeps the in-tank pump from overheating, so treaty it as truly emergency reserves and you're good.
Enjoy the truck!
And remember to always double check that it is rolled up.
It really sucks to have to pull the rear seats and carpet to dry everything out the next day if it had rained...
