    Hello, I just found this website last week when I started to think about trading in my 14 CM for a new 17 Quicksand. How long has this website be up and running? I don't remember seeing this site when I was researching my last tundra. It seems to be the best Tundra site out right now!
    Anyways, I'm from Oklahoma but reside in Belton, Tx for the past 6 years.
    Here's my Black SR5 2014 CM I traded in last week for a Quicksand limited.

    And the new Limited. I was quite a challenge trading in the black CM for the Limited. I loved that truck and hopefully can get this one up to where I'm satified with it.

    Thank you all. I've got some mods going currently and lift, wheels, and tires will be on next week. I guess I'll need to do a build thread. Hopefully mine will be worthy of one. Just looking at some of the build threads on here, they are some of the best looking Tundras I've ever seen!

    The plan as of now is a 4in Pro Comp with 35 BFG KO2, 20x10 Fuel Hostage installed Thursday of this Week. Dealership is going to swap out the chrome badges for black on Thursday as well. TRD Pro grille, color matched bumper ends, and mirror caps (all Quicksand) have been ordered from Roman the day I signed the paperwork for this truck. The chrome door hands have already been swapped out for black and the Limited Badge changed to black as well.
    I used Roman for all of my 14 parts as well, so I know his customer service is great. Its just going to take forever to get the grille in, at least its going to seem like it for these next few weeks.

    Welcome from UT. You got that right. This is the premier Tundra enthusiast site. Always will be!

    Good looking trucks man. Love the sand with everything blacked out. Reminds me of the old land rover defenders. :thumbsup:

    congrats on the new Tundra. I, too, traded in a Gen 3 SR5 for a Limited...nice upgrade for sure. The QS trucks look so good with black accents...this one will be a keeper for sure.

    Welcome from Texas! It's always tough trading in a Tundras you've made your own. Now you have a new Tundra to make your own again. Plus everyone on this site is eager to help you spend your money moding your truck. Lol

    I just can't wait till I get it looking somewhat like I'd like. You exactly right about giving up what you like for something your not 100% sold on. But I have a vision on how I can get it looking better than my first one for sure!
