    Hi! My name is Seth and I'm here to party.

    I'm about to trade in my Tacoma for a 2010 Barcelona Red Tundra. It's got 36k on the odometer, few little things here and there but overall looking forward to the swap. Need more space because the kiddoh is getting bigger.

    Do have a question or two, it doesn't have a tow package but I'm looking at adding a trans cooler and plumb it myself. Anyone ever done one before? Seems pretty simple to me, just want to make sure it's done right.

    I'll upload pictures of the Tundra as soo as I can.

    How did you mount the letters to your grill? Thinking of doing the same thing. Had the HomerTaco on the Tacoma but can't find one like it for the Tundra.

    Welcome. I wanted to buy a CM while there, ended getting a Volvo and Benz. It's ok, because I was able to get a 2015 once I came back to states!

    Anyone know if they make a color matched grill surround for the Barcelona Red code? I've been finding them for the 3rd gen but not the 2nd gen's.

    I just used the same stuff in MGM color on the top of my topper. Definitely a perfect color match. Was $15 + shipping for a 8 ounce can on Amazon. Should have bought two cans.
