    Greetings from Austin, TX!
    I am a new Tundra owner and loving it. I put it off for a year or so cause I really enjoyed not having a car payment since 2007. I purchased a Highlander brand new (14miles) in 2002 and just got rid of it. I had been eyeballing the Tacoma for a while due to the size of the Tundra just being so large. But, after having my kids in the back seat - I said to myself- They fit now- but in 3 years they won't.
    I looked at new but couldn't stomach the price tag. And after spending months and months with dealers searching for the Cement colored model but I found that I could see all the dings and scratches more with that color. Sad- I wanted it. So I ended up with a 2015 Magnetic Grey Tss Offroad. Bam- Instant love. Did I also mention that this was 1st truck ever? I am already swooning over accessories and ways to secure my mtn bikes. Anyways- I'm happy as hell and excited to spam your threads with stupid questions.
