    Thanks for the welcome. I had been eyeing Tacoma's for several years, but when it came time to pull the trigger, I decided to go BIG and never looked back. Picked up my 2016 Crewmax a month ago with 40k in a private sale at a very good price. The same day I went for one last look at the local dealer, who was tying to sell me new and used at outrageous prices. When I told them what I could get, all the manager could say was, "how bout you bring it here for service". Two hours later I brought my baby home :) I detailed and parked the 3-series, put it up for sale, and she's gone.
    This site has been my go-to place for advice and buying tips. My first add-on was a Bak Rollover X4, which I have to say, fits the Crewmax perfectly and is designed for quick reinstallation of the bed rails.
    Big shout out to the guys in the Tonneau thread for advice and to Luke at Truck Alterations, who, as mentioned in the thread, picked up the phone and gave me a price that made me say I'll take that Deal!"
    Again, thanks to all the Tundra lovers and folks to take the time to share their knowledge.
    As an aside, I was having trouble linking my iPhone 7plus to the navigation app, but since I updated to OS12, presto, it asked for an "update" and the navigation works perfectly. (the Toyota site information indicated the phone as incompatible due to "data", however, the upgrade has corrected the glitch.
    In need of a set of tires and currently researching a minor lift using coil-overs so I can jump up a size.
    Hoping to be able to add some pics here...
    Thanks again!
