    Hello fellow Tundra enthusiasts,

    My name is Dustin and I hail from Belleville, IL. I recently purchased a new 2017 Tundra TRD Off Road. I am new to the Toyota lineup. All I have ever driven was Fords, Nissans, and Rams. I traded in my 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel for my Tundra and I do not regret it.

    My wife started looking at 4Runners and I ended up looking at Tundras and liked the style of them and the TRD packages. There really wasn't much more I could do to my Rebel. Don't get me wrong, I loved it and it rode really nice. Just wanted something different I guess.
