    After some decisions and waiting, I finally picked up my truck today. At first, I was going to get the new Sport version, then was going to get a platinum. But I couldn't wait the months it would take for the build (Hawaii, not a lot of selection).

    I'm still planning on getting a platinum, maybe, in 3 or so years, when I can take my time ordering and after I've enjoyed this be truck. This is also sort of an evaluation period. This is my first truck, which replaced a very convenient, family-friendly Honda pilot.

    So here she is:

    - 2018 SR5 CM 4x4
    - TRD off-road with all the convenience packages
    - Cement
    - basic black running boards
    - deck rail
    - TRD dual exhaust
    - factory tint

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Whoo-hooo!! Congrats, Buddy!!!

    And, look at you: you've been here more than a month, and chimed in more than 50 times. You can start posting attempts to sell chrome right away. ;)

    Thanks!
    You know, I'm actually not minding the front chrome right now. The badges I might replace with blacked out ones.

    I'm kidding. Because about 20% of posts from new members are attempts to sell parts the rest of us don't need. My chrome has grown on me. I think I've decided to black out the grill but leave the surround and the front end caps. For the city portion of its life, chrome ain't bad.

    I'm glad you finally got yer truck!

    Chrome isn't all bad, I agree. Plus, after putting down serious dough on a new car, hard to justify visual modifications to the boss (I say this jokingly and lovingly of my wife).

    It might just be me, but Cement seems to look vastly different under different lighting and/or time of day. Early this morning, sun still not quite up, it looks a little like light mud with a slight blue hue. But in the blazing sun, it looks like "cement" color.

    And pictures don't do it justice, at all!

    Either way, this color is eye catching.
