    Howdy y'all! Just became the proud owner of an '09 Red Toyota Tundra (65k miles). Was always a Chevy/ GM girl... But you can't beat a pickup built here in Texas!
    My Tundra is a sleeper and I got a super deal on it... can't wait to black it out!!!

    well, started a new job with a gas card and a vehicle allowance... Pickups are better for my job, so they added the allowance. I started searching the Chevy pickups and just blah... So a friend said, 'try a Tundra!' Went for a test drive... Amazed by the smooth quiet ride... The quality and huge cabin... And the quality comfy seats in the second row! Chevy's are thin and more like jump seats in an airplane!
    Plus guys apparently like girls who drive pickups!

    Truck looks great. I thought Tundra is female, like Mario vs Maria, or Gino vs Gina. :D

    I thought the same, but we don't have many female tundra members here, so I suppose it can be a male...

    yeah, most girls can't handle a big truck... They like their little zippy 4 cylinder

    I've lived here 18 years and the vast majority of my work is outside. Plus I'm a runner and triathlete. I'm betting I'm better at putting up with it than you...

    You must be in awesome shape (definitely better than I am). Actually, Tundra's air conditioner works pretty well, it's just a functional excuse we use to mod our trucks, haha, well, sort of. This is the first vehicle I've ever tinted and I am sold. It's amazing what difference it makes.

    Hey, I only bought the thing 4 weeks ago... I'm single and working a new job where I'm on the road in the Tundie all day... I'll get to tinting it soon enough...

    Might not be a Rock Warrior... But definitely a Road Warrior... Had it 6 weeks and it was hit by a 40' commercial truck... But he's back to his handsome self and I got those windows tinted while it was in the shop
