    Just want to say hi. I recently traded in my tired old VW Jetta for a 2015 Tundra. Took some adjusting at first but I'll never drive a small car again if I can help it!
    I did the stock air box mod and tint the first week I got it. Can't live in Fla without tinted windows.
    The next items on my to do list is the OME kit and BAmufflers exhaust. Though I'm torn between the 6" and 8" version. Being it's a 4.6 I can't justify the TRD setup.

    A little bit about me.. I was an automotive technician for 12yrs. Recently decided to change careers, go back to school and become a veterinary technician. It's something I've always wanted to do. Also I grew to hate working on cars for a living. Life is too damn short not to do something that makes you happy.

    I was raised on a ranch/farm. 72 acres. Former FFA /4-H in high school , hundred years ago it seems. Vet Tech is a noble vocation. I learned at a young age (10) how to take care of sick animals, whether chickens, cattle, swine, sheep, and horses. Good for you. Just did the OME thing. More than just a "level kit".

    Thanks man, I'm working at a clinic now and I love it!
    I know it's more than a level kit, that was the first thing that came to mind. Fixed it. :)

    You will learn this book quite well. I still have a 1972 version and quite surprising is still useful:http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/index.html

    It's good for humans too. Especially if your hands are all dried up/cracked.
