I think what some here are saying is that TWAT is an offensive acronym to some. Heck there are female members here who might even take offense to it because it is a derogatory slang. How about the "Fast Untouchable Car Klub. See how fast the MOD's * the that name. Names are important. That is the first thing they tell you when you have a kid. A club is no different. Hell's Angels will always be known as a BA biker club, but no one remembers the Heaven's Teddy Bear Biker Club. Hope you all choose wisely so that you will be remembered for your ride with the top and not a beaver.
Perhaps the Hell's Angels aren't know for their name as much as some of their activities. What did the HTBBC do? Is Mongo a member of the HTBBC?

I like TACT, but many people don't have it, so screw off if you don't like it. j/k

I have seen one of these before, they are hinged to open either on the driver's or passenger's side of the truck. The biggest use of these is for people who are handicapped and have wheel chair or power chair lifts in the back of their trucks. They are operated by an electric and hydraulic ram that allows operation with a switch or button.

I'm just glad that you put T.W.A.T. #1 in your sig instead of #1 T.W.A.T. That would have been a HUGE mistake! ha ha. Nice toppers though everyone!

No more T.W.A.T. moniker. We don't need no stinkin' abbreviations. We are the Tundra-With-A-Cap Club

End of discussion.

I would call you a TWAT, but you got the soft tonneau Maybe you can start the soft top spin off club like "Joannie Loves Chachie" J/K 2

Not forcing my views on anyone, TWAT can call themselves what ever they want. I was just trying to understand why they would want to be called TWAT's? Even the Obama Administration knew using his middle name would work against him so they kept even just the initial "H" out because Hussein is associated with a crazed dictator (negative connotation). So that is why you never saw it in the campaigns. Names do matter. Still waiting for serious reply to my original question from ewheeler. I see he has put it up to a vote for his members so it will be interesting to see if everyone wants to be called TWAT's.

just the fact that you took the time out of your day to take that picture for the club makes me happy. lol! And to top it off, it comes from a fellow sand-dune-beach-metallic-sandy-shiny-gold-desert-sand-mica tundra owner! (i have yet to find a definitive answer as to what the paint color is called) maybe we should start a club... lol, jk.

EDIT: oh, and btw, the real serious reason as to what i started calling this club the T.W.A.T. club is because i thought it was generally funny. I love a play on words.. and when i stumbled upon that abbreviation i thought to myself "well, this is funny... lets see how it goes!"

I like to joke too wheeler. Glad you don't take things too serious. You could get an ulcer. BTW, when I was looking at them back in 2007-8, Toyota called it "Desert Dune Metallic" the only Mica's were the Pyrite Mica (dark brown), Timberland Mica (hunter green) and For Mica (like my countertop). Last one was not real LOL

3 of them call it "Desert Sand Mica":
2007 Toyota Tundra Touch Up Paint Colors
2007 Toyota Tundra Colors Available
Desert Sand Mica 2007 Toyota Tundra Base Standard Bed Regular Cab Pickup Photo & Pictures at Automotive.com

and 1 source calls it "Desert Sand Metallic":

Your right. I think I am getting the "Desert Dune Metallic" from the older gold color on the old hilux and 4runners. The Desert Sand Mica is what I remember. Just call it 4Q2 to be safe.
