    Been driving a 1999 Rav4 for quite some time. Always told myself I would become a fire fighter and buy a Toyota tundra. Finally finished 7 month academy for Nashville Fire and graduate this week. The wife surprised me with a 2012 tundra SR5 crewmax. I plasti dipped the rear/front chrome bumpers and ordered new Ultra 203 hunter wheels coming this week. Glad to be here!
