    Hello everyone,

    First of all, this forum is very full of information, ideas and knowledgeable people.


    I was originally looking at Nissan Titan pro4x because of thier huge huge discount they have going on and I was surprised of the amount of features you get without breaking the bank. Cool electronic stuff is not what Im after and their forum is not cool as the Tundra. Hehehe.


    However, after reading, spending too much time on this forum and visiting various dealerships, my family and kids (14 & 7 yr old) said yes to Toyota.

    Kids love the truck because the amount of space in the back (super roomy) and I love the truck because of reliability, power and the hood scoop (lol).


    January 6, 2018, one dealership finally agreed to my terms and gave me the best deal I cant refuse without any other surprises.

    So, we made a 96 mile trip to Poway Toyota dealership in San Diego and we pulled the trigger on 2018, 4x4, TRD Sport, CM in magnetic gray.

    My kids couldn’t believed this is happening, they think we are just here to window shop again and going home empty handed.

    After hour and half filling out the paperwork and going over the final details, we drove home with this brand new (27 miles) bad boy.


    Very happy and proud owner.

    you can try but piper refers to the truck as vader. actually, she calls her dara vader since the truck is a girl.

    Sweet. Welcome Alfred. Tundra is the only truck my kids have known. If they didn't have all that room back there road trips would go south in hurry.
