    Hello everyone.
    I've been looking at various Tundra Forums and decided to reside with this one. I've poked around some other forums but I wasn't impressed. Either to newb of questions or to one sided for their own profit. I'm here for some good tech and builds.

    Name is Jason. User handle is LibertySand, some call me Liberty from other Forums. I live in So CA and frequently off road from Mountains, Desert and Sand. I recently purchased a 2nd Gen 2007 Tundra, 5.7 TRD 4X4 with Tow Package. Blue Pearl, Double Cab with the short bed. Came with Fabtech 6" lift and Rockstar rims. Since I've owned it I have changed out the rims and tires and added some lights behind the grill.

    My plan for this Tundra is to build a capable Support Rig / Expedition Rig / Tow Rig. I spend a lot of time camping and offroading. I also own a 72 IH Scout that currently is going through a frame off rebuild that will have 1 ton axles, 42" Iroks fully running off a Propane IH 345 v8. I also own a 74 IH Rescue Ambulance that is being turned into an RV and last but not least the woman has a 2010 FJ fully capable offroad.

    Anyway's enough about all that.... here's a few pics from when I picked up my Tundra in Illinois and drove it home (has NO rust, it used to be a Cali truck).

    Here is a Before and After with the new Rims and Tires I put on it. I'll be reporting to the Tire/Rim Thread also.

    I'm pretty sure in the Old Testament it says something about blue Tundras being superior.

    Welcome to the forum. Now I want bronze wheels.

    I think I've read that also, Blue being Superior. I plan on painting my Scout the same Pearl Blue when the build is done.

    As far as the rims go. Hope you have time on your hands. I just orderd a spare bronze Method yesterday and it won't be in till middle of February.

    Welcome to the forum from Texas! I like your builds especially the scout. Which led lights are you running behind the grill on the Tundra?
