    Hey all, new to this forum and Toyota as well. Actually haven't pulled the trigger just yet, but have been lurking and reading up to see what kinda scoop I can get before laying down the dough.

    The plan is to order a 17 Tundra TRD Pro. Saw one in quicksand and had to have it. Unfortunately, didn't move fast enough and it was gone. Started looking around and got the scoop from here and other places about em. Waiting on the dealership to get back with me about pricing and accessories.

    I went with the basics this time but I treated myself to 4wd. My 14 was a Platinum 2wd and was awesome! Job changes and so on made me step back a bit. It's hell getting old...

    Im also waiting on my "we are sorry we lied and tried to cheat the system" money from VW. Bought the diesel car due to driving 70 + miles a day and needed the fuel mileage. Back to driving less than 25 round trip and they are treating me right, so figured I'd go back to a nice truck.

    Welcome from CO Jeremy. You are off to a very good start. Being a fellow Jar Head kind of qualifies that...Semper Fi. Seems that Jar Heads here typically have some good ideas.

    If you were with me in Thailand, we'd probably be asking for donations to get us out of jail................

    We are still alive. Looking back...no regrets at all. USMC is#1, always will be, every body else is second place. (2nd place....1st loser, sorry, no feel good participation ribbons in the Marine Corps)

    My oldest is a senior in h/s and seriously considering joining. I'm sure it has changed in 20+ years. My buddies kids have gone through recruit training within last 5 years and said the qualify with an ACOG.

    All USA military branches are #1. Any 18 year old kid, young man or girl, can't go wrong. Coast Guard is also a great option. Not easy getting in the Coast Guard at all. My co-workers' Daughter is a rescue chopper pilot for the Coast Guard. Free training, college.........lifetime experience.
