    Hello everyone,

    New to the forum, as well as the world of Toyota. Currently driving a 2013 GMC Sierra crew cab, but will be making the switch to a 2017-2018 Tundra crewmax very soon. I'm still undecided on the trim package since I really don't need/want leather, but I do like some of the other options that aren't always available on the SR5. I've been a lifelong GM fan, but it's time to make a change.

    As I embark on my new journey, I'm sure I'll have a number of questions as I begin to make slight modifications to get the performance I desire. This forum has given me a lot of good information thus far, but I'm having trouble putting it all together. I'll be posting an ad in the suspension section in hopes of getting some more information.

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    Welcome from NH I made the change last year from a 2014 GMC Sierra crew cab and I couldn't be happier just mad I didn't make the switch sooner. Good luck on your upcoming purchase

    Welcome from Obx Ryan. The guy's from Toytec will take care of you and steer you in the right direction. One thing that stood out with Toytec was talking with David, and explaining to him what I was wanting as far as suspension set- up . At no time did he push or try to sell me something I didn't want or need. There's a ton of experience and knowledge on here, and everyone wants to help. So next thing is I hope you have a low interest credit card. :D
