    Hey all, Jeff in Central Texas. New to Toyotas. 56 years old, retired Fire/EMS. Just got a 2019 Tundra in Magnetic Gray last Friday 12/21/18. Quite a change from my lifted 17 Chevy beast. Having done anything to it yet. First step will be full bumper replacement due to suicidal deer in the area. Also want to add my Jotto locking holster, likely inside the console I guess. Has anyone installed one of these anywhere? I saw the holster console thread. Here is only pic I have yet, still at dealership before we left with it. Thanks.

    With the lift, tires, etc it would eventually become a money pit. I just "retired" from a tech job after 18 years and wanted a new vehicle with warranty, etc, so I would be set for a while. Also the wife hated the Chevy. LOL

    You may miss that Chevy now, but give it a couple more weeks and you'll be like, what Chevy. Should have traded along time ago.

    I’m thinking of one of those magnetic holsters you can screw in under and to the right of the steering wheel. Make for faster draw time!
