    I believe I'm around 2 years give or take...not a huge deal.just curious. I feel like I'm being labeled at this point, and feel sort triggered. I mean, I don't "identify" as a new member...what gives?!

    Someone called me a 'Toxic prick' when I first joined the forum.
    I liked it so much I took as my 'custom title'.....

    You can find it in the Personal Details of your account..

    Now if I could just find an avatar that I like.:eek:

    It isn't automated or messed with by mods like on other forums. You just gotta find it and change it.

    As far as new members, to me it isn't how long you've been around but how much you've learned and contribute.

    You have to answer the following questions correctly and we will allow you to graduate.

    What color Tundra is the slowest?

    What is the best AT tire and at what PSI? Extra credit for snowflake rating.

    What lift setting is best for the Bilstein 6112? Extra credit if you answer with shims.

    What is the best oil for Gen 3? Extra credit if you know where to send it for testing.

    Essay: how often do you change your oil?

    What octane gas do you put in Gen 3 Tundra for optimal MPG?

    What does BMC stand for and why does it exist? Extra Credit Essay: Will it rub?

    One hour time limit. Go.......

    Ha I love this! I'll play.

    What color Tundra is the slowest?
    Every color with the 4.0 V6

    What is the best AT tire and at what PSI? Extra credit for snowflake rating.

    Toyo AT3 285/75-17 35F 38R

    What lift setting is best for the Bilstein 6112? Extra credit if you answer with shims.

    1.9. Shims are just tiny spacer lifts and shouldn’t be used
    .


    What is the best oil for Gen 3? Extra credit if you know where to send it for testing.

    Pick your flavor of synthetic 0W-20 for the engine. Special Toyota branded 75W for the Tcase. 75W-90 for the diffs. Send to Blackstone for analysis.

    Essay: how often do you change your oil?

    10k if you don’t use flex fuel. 5k otherwise.

    What octane gas do you put in Gen 3 Tundra for optimal MPG?

    At least 87 non-ethanol for best MPG

    What does BMC stand for and why does it exist? Extra Credit Essay: Will it rub?

    Body mount chop. Keep a reasonable offset and you probably won’t need a BMC.

    You had all of them right except question one. The correct answer is any white Tundra ever, anywhere, anytime.

    Yes nothing annoys me more than the guys who will post here for the first time since the 5 years they've been here. Damn lurkers... and everytime they post they give a crappy description of the problem they are having with their truck, then won't come back again unless another problem happens
