    Just bought a '17 Tundra Platinum in MGM. Sold my 09 Tacoma yesterday, so I had to get into a larger truck. Added a TRD exhaust in the deal. Plans are to keep this one very basic; remote start, line-x, tonneau cover, tint, weathertechs, and that is about it...

    So I drove my car to the dealer to buy it by myself. Came home for dinner and did not go back to get it. I will pick it up tomorrow sometime.

    Welcome bud. I'm pretty certain I would have left whatever I drove there and brought home the tundra. :D

    Welcome to the forum! I remember telling my wife I wouldn't do much to my Tundra and then that all went out the window when I found this forum.

    Nice! I am originally from DE, but stationed in VA. Thanks.

    So I am kind of glad they did not offer it stock. I am a fan of two way remote start systems, so I know that the truck is running or not. Without it, you are running on hopes and dreams after pressing the button without looking at the truck.

    Welcome from Texas! That's a impressive build you did on the Tacoma. After seeing all the mods on your taco your going to have a hard time not modding your new Tundra. Lol. Good choice on your Tundras color.

    Thank you. I plan on modding the Tundra some, but not to any where near the level of the Tacoma.
