    I LOVE my TRD exhaust. It's a great refined sound. Only drone that I ever notice is slight around 50 MPH. I could not be happier. I am on Rt 6 and Reed Rd Dunkin daily.
    Meet up at Dunkin Donuts if you want to hear the exhaust.

    New member in Mass, any one deal with SDHQ. Looking at their sliders, expensive as is, but shipping is another $400.00. Any ideas to lessen the shipping cost. Does any deal with a local fabricator that can weld up something similar. I do like the idea of complete bolt on.

    Hey MA Tundra owners..

    Just picked my first Tundra. Its a 2018 TRD Off Road. Curious to hear if anyone thinks snow tires are needed for standard MA/NH winter driving? Current tires are Michelin LTX A/T 2. They look up to the task, but i am coming from an Audi with full time 4 wheel drive and used dedicated snow tires... Since the Tundra in part time 4 wheel drive, was thinking dedicated snow's maybe a good idea for the truck as well.. What has been everyone's experience with stock tires in the winter?

    I haven’t had much issue with the tires, and can’t speak to which might be best, but having driven around here for the last 20 years, when the winter comes, buy a couple hundred pounds of sleeved sand at your local Hardware store and throw them in the back.
    Also, too many people think 4x4 will keep you on the road like the Quattro, but it’s really for getting out when you get stuck. So drive and turn with a bit more care when it’s crappy out.

    Driving my tundra for a year now with no issues with tires. As previously written it is a pick up and the rear end is light a little weight in the bed does help. That said the stock tires are great for around town on packed plowed snow. If you are planning to drive a majority of your time on back roads with deeper snow a more aggressive A/T tire may be needed.

    Anyone know if I can buy tires in NH to avoid sales tax, or has that loophole been closed? Looking to get the AT KO2 275/70/18 for stock wheels. If I don’t buy in NH, any recommendations?

    You can buy the tires in NH no problem. You pay the the tax if you have them mounted on your truck in NH.

    I have bought in NH and later mount on .y vehicle at a local shop in mass.

    Check out internet prices with free shipping,

    Good luck.
