    image.jpg Just wanted to introduce myself. As of this morning I'm now a part of this awesome community.....officially. I've been watching and reading a ton of post and gathering a huge amount of interesting and very helpful information. I have got a long way to go before I get my truck up to where I want her but after reading all the mods y'all have done I want to thank this group of some fine people for helping me decide what I want to do to my baby girl. Y'all have some great ideas. I've been very impressed with the knowledge and passion this group brings to the Tundra table. I'm excited to finally be amongst a great group of people who I know will try their best to help me with any problems I might have going forward with my Tundra and allow me to bounce ideas I might have about dressing my little girl up off of y'all. In the next coming months and years y'all might notice a little piece of your truck in mine. Like I said before, y'all have done my needing and wanting for me. Now I just have to decide what all I want to do to my truck. I'm a hands on person so I like to take care of my own truck even if I have no clue to what and how I'm going to do it. I have a ton of confidence in myself now just knowing when I run into something that I'm just not sure about I know I can always find the answer in a previous post and if not I know all I have to do is ask and I'll have some of the most knowledgeable, smart, exciting, passionate creative Tundra loving family backing me up. I have a Gen. II 2008 Crew Max TRD 4WD. She is Silver Sky Metallic. The fellow I got her from installed a 3" lift with a leveling kit and gave her some 35x12.50R 20LT Kanati Trail Hog A/T's for kickers. She's dressed on the inside with leather and she has her trunk covered with a Tonneau Rugged Cover II and the bed is dressed out bottom sides and all with a grey Bedrug. When I get back home I'll be installing a KENWOOD DNX570HD in her dash and hopefully by next weekend she will have a whole new amp speakers and a sub to go along with her radio. Nothing pounding just when I'm riding down the road at 80MPH and all my windows are down I like to actually hear clear clean music. All right. I think that is all I can come up with at my first introduction. I hope I covered all the bases. I'm getting carpel tunnel with all this typing. Thank y'all for letting me into the group and I'm looking forward to many years of having a blast being here. Good-bye for now from THE GREAT STATE OF ALABAMA!!! HOME OF THE CRIMSON TIDE BABY!!!

    Thank you folks. I'm excited to be here. It feels different being apart of the group now. I was feeling like a little stalker before I joined up. I felt like I was sneaking in your garage and taking notes on all the mods you were doing and then I felt noisy ease dropping on all the different conversations. Just kidding. Again, thanks for making me feel like I'm six years old again and Santa just dropped off my presents.

    I love your rims. They really pop with your paint job. That's an awesome Tundra bro. I live just south of B'ham in Chelsea. If you think I'm in love with my truck, wait till I tell you about my Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic. Even then I still wouldn't be wide open yet. Now get me talking about my most awesome and absolutely beautiful inside and out wife???? Then you'll see how passionate and kicking it like a three legged chicken on crack cocaine I can be. Actually after I joined this morning I got an email just asking me to introduce myself and say a little something about my truck AND so I did. The next thing I knew I had written a novel. Heck by then I didn't want to erase all that I had written because then I would have gotten carpel tunnel for nothing. So I just threw it out there and just figured most of the members would over look it and chalk it up to some old southern country red neck who had already hit the shine a little to early and he let his giddiness get the better of him. Yes let's hook up and go for a ride. I haven't been in the woods with her yet.

    Brett, watch out for Law! He will secretly try to enroll you into the LSU fan club. Be strong, don't give in, and stand your ground.....then come on over to the dark side:

    Luckily I had parents that loved me so much that they wanted to make sure they raised me right and that's why I'm a Bama fan. ROLL TIDE!!!
