    Hello to the Tundra community. I finally bought a Tundra today. It's a 2017 CM SR5. I was looking for a Platinum CM but with the bracket situation, there are none available. The dealership asked me to check out this SR5. It is not the Platinum I was looking for but after a test drive and the package already installed I changed my mind. It has a Pro Comp 7"lift with Moto Metal 961's with 37x12.5x20 Pro Comp Xtreme MT2's. This is my first brand new vehicle. My last truck was a 87' Toyota extra cab long bed back in the late 80's early 90's. It has custom heated leather seats which are very nice. I'm going to go out and take some more pic's tomorrow. Just wanted to say hello to everyone.20170211_132426_resized_1.jpg 20170211_132417_resized_1.jpg 20170211_132412_resized_1.jpg 20170211_132442_resized_1.jpg 20170211_170302_resized_1.jpg

    Joonbug, I'm in Livermore. Maybe we could meet up and you can check out my truck and I can see what you have done to yours.
    What they were charging for the stuff they put on was ridiculous of course but we worked on the price. They put a 7" lift with 37" tires and they didn't change the UCA's. There is no skid plate to protect the fuel tank. I explained to them that it is a safety issue by not having a skid plate on when the truck is so high.They agreed with me and I got more off so I could buy some skid plates.

    I had 2 3rd gen Camaro's, my current MX5, set up for road racing and 3 Motorcycles. It's been a long time between trucks and I was ready for one. I'm a truck driver. I drive a rig with a 53' lowboy trailer.

    No Katz. This is a custom leather job with heated seats. They added 3k to the price for them.I wish they would have written down the product company for the accessories they added. Here is the logo on the head rests. I don't know if that is JS or JLS Motorsport. It's hard to read. I tried to look the name up on the internet buy couldn't find anything. Anyone know this Logo? With dealer markup I'm sure it's not even close to $3k.
