    Just bought my first truck and my first Tundra. It's a 2011 Crewmax in black.
    I am planning on after market wheels and tires at some point and want to lift it too.IMG_0481.jpg

    Welcome from CO. Former SFVer myself. Left when aerospace industry got chased out to make room for more McDonald's, Taco Bells, and 7/11's. (So much for a tax base). Actually a lot of the aerospace industry relocated here in CO. Our biggest customers are Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, Seakr, and Ball Aerospace.

    It would be easier for me to say what aerospace companies that I didn't go to to calibrate their high end RF test equipment over the 17 years that I was there. So many have left but aerospace does still have a small footprint in the valley (and Simi of course). We'd go as far north as the Vandenberg pads down to San Diego. Don't miss it at all. Except Dodger games. Go Dodgers!!
