    Hello All,

    I'm glad to be a part of this online family of Tundra owners but no time for introductions, lets get to it. A little bit abt myself. I've never owned anything but a Tundra. I currently own a White 2014 Platinum 4x4, nicknamed Shadowfax (Lord of all Horses.... Corny LOTR Ref. but I like it so backoff lol)which I was proud to buy brand new summer before last. It is my fourth Tundra and the first that wasn't a hand me down from my awesome Dad who always understood the relationship between a man and his truck. I'll start at the beginning of the Blood/Oil line.

    He was my 16th B-Day present and the truck I learned to drive in. I had to scan these photos in so it was def long enough ago. LOL Fully loaded as a 2001 Limited 4x4 could of been with gray leather interior, leveling kit, 33's, and a good sounding flowmaster dual exhaust. I was in high school so i was worried about the sound system way to much. I had a pretty cool JL stealthbox with a 10-W3 under the center console which I couldn't find the pics of. So I've basically loved Tundras since day 1.

    Shadowfax#2

    #1 saved my life when I pulled out onto a highway super early one morning and some old guy going 60, with no headlights on, smashed into me right behind my drivers door. I walked away without a scratch. RIP #1. So #2 wasn't as cool as #1. It was a 2003 Limited with Tan Leather. It wasn't 4WD so no point of lifting it. I just put some nice 18's, Dual exhaust, an ARE bed cover, and a Bed Rug. The bed rug was nice for my senior year and camping out with the Ladies I must admit. I obviously had started partying at that point bc this is the only pic I could find. The subs were a buddies we were just messin around with.
    Tundra 2-1.jpg #2 Lasted until some dumb chick in a Ranger ran a stop sign in a college parking lot forcing me to smash into her, which actually led to her doing doing 1/2 of a barrel roll onto a parked pontiac...... Keep in mind I was only doing 25mph, it was more funny than anything but somehow that totaled #2 Yeah its as ridiculous as it sounds.

    #3 The Phantom

    It wasn't white so it couldnt be a Shadowfax, but it was Phantom Gray, had gray leather with the gray wood grain, and was stepside which I loved abt it. It was the last hand me down and this one is the only one that hadn't been unlucky and lasted til 200,000 miles. Did nothing special to this one except 20's and an ARE bed cover which looked awesome on the stepside bodystyle, didn't really have the money to do anything else being a broke college student. Only pics I could find were the ones I took right before I traded it in for the present one. It looked nicer when it was clean. lol

    I Took this pic the day I bought him. I've done alot to it since so I'll make this one it's own thread in the 4th gen posts.

    TBC
    I ALSO JUST TRIED PREVIEWING THIS AND THE PICS DIDN'T SHOW UP. I'M THINKING THEY NEED TO BE APPROVED FIRST SO IF NOT, I'LL REPOST IF SOMEONE WANTS TO POST WHAT I'M DOING WRONG. THNX
