    Just picked up my new 2018 sr5 crewmax last week. I had a 2009 4 door sport Tacoma. I did all the mods to it 3 inch lift and a lot more beautiful truck. Paid 30000 brand-new out the door. Been wanting a tundra for the last couple of years but it was nice not having car payments for 6 years. Then 0.9 loan for 5 years made me pull the trigger. Still hard to let the Tacoma go not 1 problem with it and it only had 94000 miles on it very well maintained. But driving the tundra home from the dealership I made a good decision. I sold the Tacoma for 19k talk about holding value. If I held out could of got atleast 20k. Dealer offered me 17k that was never going to happen. The Tacoma sold in 2 days. So the mods begin on the tundra so had the windows tinted and as I type this, 2 and a half front 1 and a half rear leveling kit and 34inch toyo mt and 18 inch fuel vapor -12 offset are being installed. Les schab is doing it 3700 for everything. I could of got it cheaper but like there warrinty. The dealer did the spray on bed liner and dual exhaust and trd cold air in take and black badging. Again could of got it cheaper but I was able to roll it into my loan 0.9 percent. So next is color matching all the chrome. I talked to Roman of cool springs to make a plan. Atleast the rear bumper is already color matched. And the mirrors are black so are the door handles so there good. By the way color of the truck is magnetic gray with black interior. And I got all new kicker front and rear door speakers 1 12 inch rock ford fosgate slim box and Pioneer 5 channel amp and pac lp7-4 4 channel line output converter with remote. keeping my head unit its the upgrade with nav not the jbl. That goes in next week. So with 830 miles on the truck I am almost there. Thank you to everyone I learned a lot from this website.
