    hey guys, nice to see a well organized forum with no crazy ads! Lol

    On to the introduction.
    My name is Hieu(Hugh).
    Previously owned a 07 taco..had a very bitter parting with it..purchased a s2000.. Fun little car.. But it was a high maintenance 2 door teenage dream that drew too much attention in my area for my liking.
    Traded the s2k for a 2014 Taco Baja. Badass truck.. Drove the hell out of it for a year, put on 25k with multiple trips to Colorado for the awesome trails!

    Sadly I got rear ended on the highway by a law student too busy reading his test scores to notice traffic was at a complete stop. Insurance deemed the truck repairable, and need less to say.. When I received my taco back it was Never the same.. Tranny bearing failure, rear diff failure only after getting the truck back for 1k miles.. Brought up the problems with insurance and everything was replaced under insurance claims.

    Fast forward to may2015.. Toyota dealership had a customer who adored my truck(it was pretty nice if I don't say so myself lol) while it was in for service and I was offered to have a trade I could not refuse! Apparently NM did not have any more Baja tacomas available...so my brother(Toyota sales manager) gave me a trade in offer, straight trade for a 2015 tundra crew max sr5(not my first choice of trim levels) and I was sold!

    Since owning my tundra I don't regret getting rid of my Tacoma. Only downside has been 98% of parking spaces require me to reverse park.. Might need a new driver mod but that's not happening anytime soon..

    Seeing as how I have toyotas legendary 5.7l.. How could I resist not towing something behind it!
    Dec 2015 purchased a 2015 jayco flight slx 184bh. This thing loaded is around 4500lbs. It hardly bothers the tundra. Plans are in the works on upgrading if the gf allows..

    Ah looks like I rambled on.. Anyway! I look forward to talking to everyone!

    Welcome from northeast CO! Looks like you've switched rims a few times already, any plans for other mods?

    Thank you for the welcoming!
    Yeah.. I was getting fed up with cleaning between the chrome and multiple spokes... The fn wheels are much easier to clean!

    Hello! Haha I installed them while retaining the stock look. Saw a lot of threads of people removing the screen but I wasn't a fan of how it looked.I took some measurements,purchased a led light bar from Amazon, and modified the bulge to fit the light bar.

    Welcome from CO. Nothing wrong with rambling on. I do it all the time. Nice pics. Sand and snow. Came from a 09 Taco myself. Parking my Tundra sucks. Really sucks. Four Wheeling doesn't. :jellydance:

    Very easy to clean and the BFDs that you have will only be seen on your Tundra. You will enjoy telling big three fan boys that they can't get them.
