    Hi Everyone, I don't usually post anything on any forums but I decided to start build threads here to share with everyone.

    I picked up 2021 DC SR5 with TRD offroad package. It was only DC available at that time around town.

    I decided to buy a fullsize pickup because the FJ was getting small for me and my wife

    Hung out with my friend with a overland Tacoma

    I was impressed how big the center console is.

    I am using a Sony A7 with 105mm for these photos, other shots are from a phone, you need long lens to get good shots of trucks or any vehicles.

    Looks awesome! Nothing like a black tundra. About as good as it gets.

    Your are off to a fantastic start, loving your build. In to see your thoughts on the DashCam too - have you used that brand or model before?
