    Ladies and Gents I just picked up my first Tundra and as a long time RAM owner everything is moderately similar but completely different at the same time. So that being said I just skimmed through a thread about things that you didn't know your Tundra could do. That's where the "completely different" part came into view. So drop some knowledge on me as far as need to know or quirky things about the truck that makes it special. Also it's been raining since I bought my truck and I don't want to crawl around in the wet driveway to find that tow points under the bumper. Please share that knowledge and best practices for getting a Tundra with no front toy hooks out of Snow/Mud etc. Thank you all and happy to be a part of the community!

    Damn 115 am pouring rain. Just went out to check and your right there are. Just REALLY recessed compared to my RAM. Like I said I didn't crawl underneath the truck to poke around because it's been pouring for two days straight when i was in the buying process. Good looking out!

    Also color matched with the black on my truck. Practically invisible in the dark.

    Congrats on your new truck! The reason the Tundra's tow hooks are more recessed than the RAM's is because the RAM needs them more often :rofl:
