    So im new here but not new to the tundras. Im 33 and a master diagnostic technician for Toyota in CT for a bit over 10 years now. I was previously a tech for lexus and Nissan. Im currently waiting for my 19 super white trd pro that's due for delivery on june 5th. Im making the switch from an 06 dodge 2500 with a cummins. I love that truck but its just too much time and money to maintain. As everyone already knows the tundra is just amazingly reliable and such an awesome truck and who doesn't believe that the new pro is just bad ass! We just got my wife a 19 highlander with the nightshade option and I LOVE that car. We needed a family car to take my 1 year old in. Ive also done lots of frames on the tundras tacos and sequoias. Fortunately the tundras are rare to need a frame replacement. Maybe I can answer questions if anybody needs. Heres pics of my current truck and my wifes highlander my camaro and one of the few tundras that ive replaced the frame on. Thanks and I cant wait till I can show off my new pro!

    Thank you! Toyotas definitely making lots of changes and hopefully I can shed some light on whats to come. Were finally got updates out for the 2018 Camrys and siennas to have apple car play and im hoping to see that update come out for the rest of the fleet including the tundras.
