    Hello!
    I bought my first Tundra a couple weeks ago! I’ve been wanting one for a long time, and my daily/project car was having to many issues. So I bought this 2005 Tundra AC 4WD in Phantom Grey Pearl from a Ford dealership north of Seattle. 111k miles on it so I know she’s got plenty of life left. I also am a technician at a Toyota dealership so I got all the resources I need! I’d like to do a mild pre-runner build but also be able to camp out of it as well. We’ll see how that goes! I’ll copy this and start a build thread as well!
    Nice to meet y’all!!

    I'll grab some in the morning for sure! I've had it for a couple weeks now and have been to Rainier almost every weekend so she's a little dirty but the interior was mint when I picked her up!

    $11.7k, 1 owner, serviced at a dealer till warranty was up. Working at Toyota has its perks, I spent weeks looking up the VIN's in our system for every Tundra on the market up here before I pulled the trigger on this one!
