    Hello all! I bought my Tundra pretty recently, July of 2015. My wife and I reside in Tucson, AZ., where having a 4X4 vehicle can be a life saver! We have what we call "monsoon season", where bouts of torrential summer rain storms can flood roads at a moments notice. Let's just say, I don't worry about them, at all. I've had f*** & ch*** trucks in the past, but they just can't hold a candle to our Tundra "Big Sexy" (yes, named after WCW star Kevin Nash). I'm pretty sure you'll all agree when I say, this truck DOES EVERYTHING IT SHOULD DO, and does it better than most. We've put big sexy through it's paces: A couple long road trips, off road fun, and of course towing our tear-drop camper. Here's why I decided to buy a Tundra: A few years back I worked with another forum member here SIXSEVENONE, at a company called Worldpac. Basically, they're the Costco of automotive resale parts. When I was considering purchasing a full size vehicle, I'd ask many of the shops and mechanics that I delivered to the same question: What full size truck is the overall best? 9/10 of those *doctors* agreed, it was the Tundra. How could I argue with that? Let's just say, now I know they were right. I'm a proud owner, and grateful to be a part of this community. Cheers!

    Thank you!!! When money permits, a 2 - 3 inch lift, dual exhaust, and I seem to have read somewhere here that someone is getting a TRD roll bar. I'd be down with that. Also, Joon has a rather good looking tint brow.

    I was raised in Tucson. Near river rd and sabino. River rd was a dirt rd then and the area was mostly ranches.

    Much appreciated! We love the camper. It's hand made from the ground up by a retired gentleman in Yosemite; currently I have #7 of 21. Yep, Shane was partially responsible for our decision to buy the Tundra, and my first mountain bike in 1998 =)
