    I live in a town / small city of about 36,000 with a large truck population. I see a lot of truck brands that I feel simply do not stack up to my Tundra. I honestly feel that my Tundra is a very nice setup and constantly get compliments around town. This had me thinking that I have one of the nicest trucks in town only to be humbled this past week. Putting me back into my place, God has revealed several days in a row, several Tundras driving around town that are modded to absolute perfection. Each day a different Tundra appeared in different colors that were down right jaw dropping. Oh well, back to being humble.

    That's exactly why its happens, to keep you humble LOL.

    Do those other Tundras at least give you the Tundra nod?

    One of the suburb towns outside Richmond, VA. I agree. There are quite a few Tundras here with most being work/farm vehicles. Most of these reflect what it was designed to be, a well designed, tough truck that handles the demand of hard working folks. This past week revealed the new ones not yet showing the honor scars of work.

    Yeah, you are supposed to nod or wave at other tundra owners with nice trucks. Not all do though because salesman failed (again) to let them know.

    Ok, now I know...

    Now is it a special nod or wave? Like the bikers have that low wave thing they do.

    Is your truck modded at all? That is one of the requirements for the Tundra wave (at least 2 noticeable modifications to the exterior) per Tundra Brotherhood statute #467-1A.
