    I've been trolling this forum for a couple of months now. Since I'm about to make my first major and probably most important mod. I figured I would introduce myself.

    Traded in my 2014 6 speed FJ which I really loved. Bought her before my family and I moved away from south Texas. Perfect rig for driving out to the jetties on South Padre. We called her the the turtle van. 2in Toytech lift, Metal Mayhem wheels, wrapped in 33x12.5o Pro Comps, color matched roof, and plastidipped everything that was silver on it (sorry can't find a pic with everything blacked out). Wanted to mod this one out but got to deep into fishing the Gulf, which took up all the spare money.

    I had been bouncing around the idea of upgrading to my first full sized truck and on the way to the river with my son one weekend, we had a really close call. I almost wrecked pulling my side by side on my 16 ft utility trailor. Short wheel base of the FJ aloud the rear end to slide out with the weight of the trailor.

    Started shoppin the next day.

    Found me a 2017 Cement TRD Pro at a great price

    I already have a few minor purchases:

    Huskey floor liners
    The deviders for the console
    Vinyl inserts for the sides and back
    And bullydog GT tuner - A big thanks to Keith at Dirty Deeds. He gave me a great price, free shipping (it showed up in 2 days). Also he helped me set it up and talked me about my planned setup with lift, wheels, and tires. We were on the phone for over 30 mins and he was really helpful.
