    I've been lurking for a little while now and after seeing the 2018 LED headlight conversion I had to join the Tundras.com community. I am very impressed at how welcoming this community is and have learned a lot of cool tricks and mods that I want to do to my truck as my wife allow / put up with.

    I grew up in New York, lived in western Massachusetts for 7 years, then moved out to Colorado in 2011. My first Tundra was a stock 2006 SR5 crew cab, which I traded in with 176,500 miles for my current Tundra, a 2015 Limited TRD double cab in sunset bronze mica and drive it like a grandma (but consistently get 18-19 mpg out of the 5.7L depending on where I drive.) I use it mostly for highway driving and washboard county roads in and out of the local oil fields as I'm on the environmental and regulatory team for our oil and gas clients.

    Toys I have gotten for my truck include:
    -Second set of allow OEM rims with snow tires for winter.
    -K&N air filter
    -Amp Research power running boards
    -Snug Top Sport Hi-Liner cap
    -Putco tailgate light
    -Rigid Industries SAE/DOT compliant amber fog lights
    -Rigid Industries high/low SR2 10" LED light
    -Weathertech floor mats
    -Garmin 55 dash camera
    -2018 LED headlight conversion (waiting for some additional parts and time to install)

    Future toys / mods include:
    -TRD Pro suspension
    -remote tailgate lock
    -rear seat fold-down mod.

    There is likely more I would like to do to the truck as I find cool mods on this forum.

    Here is a pic of the truck at some caves outside of Moab about 2 weeks after purchase before the toys started getting added to it.
