    Hello internet strangers.
    This past Saturday I picked up my new '17 Tundra, 4x4, SR5, Double Cab, 6.5' Bed, 5.7L Gas, Magnetic Grey Metallic w/Graphite interior, with the Safety+Convenience, SR5 Upgrade, and TRD Off-Road packages.
    I'm coming from the FJ Cruiser world where I spent almost the last 5 years in 2 FJ's. I loved the FJ Cruiser but I got a crazy offer for my '14 that I couldn't pass up, not every day someone offers you more money for your 3 year old vehicle than you paid for it new. I almost broke even on the mods that were on it.
    I figured since I don't have a FJ anymore I would be best suited to get a full size truck, a trailer, and a 4wheeler.
    I already have the TRD PRO grille and hump and will be ordering the rest of the TRD PRO front end soon. I hate chrome.
    And here is the most important part of the introduction thread, the crappy phone pic at the dealership...

    So here's to a blank slate and an empty bank account!

    that's like ordering plain vanilla ice cream. thankfully, he appears to have more sense and better style. hopefully he doesn't have a bottle of your favorite detail spray hiding behind the seat.

    i, too, am an ex-fj'er. hidey ho from denver.
