    Hello I am a new member and I’d like to show my 2004 Tundra I inherited from my father. When my dad purchased this Tundra it already had side steps, a toolbox, and 20 inch rims. Everything else, I have done myself. Not gonna lie, when I got this truck it was in pretty bad shape, but a few months later it doesn’t look too bad and it’s only gonna get better. I have cleaned this thing up (Polished and put two coats of wax all around, cleaned the rims, and cleared up the headlights). I also deleted the toolbox, sidesteps, and mud flaps. I installed 4 LED light strips so I can see the inside at night. I put in a double din SoundStream headunit, SoundStream 3-way door speakers all around, an Audiopipe 1500w amp along with an Audiopipe BD2-15. I replaced the front trim piece in the bumper, and have done other maintenance typical on a 14 year old truck. I added a little before and after pictures but let me know what you guys think and also some recommendations for this truck.

    I do have the sub sitting behind me for now. I might switch it over to behind the passenger seat but I can snap a picture for you tomorrow.

    XBlake, you mind posting those bulbs (sizes and brands pictures) for the rest of us for future reference?

    How are they working for you?

    Well, today I leveled my truck with a 2 inch leveling kit and the front sits a little bit higher than in the rear but it looks so good and added so much clearance!

    Take the bottom part of the seat out on the passenger side and drop the sub there. I would find a way to bolt it down too, its dangerous having loose sub boxes in a cab.

    Trust me, that thing isn’t going anywhere. It’s 50+ lbs and i have the seat all the way back on it so it doesn’t move.

    Xblakely that woofer isn’t nearly large enough! : )

    What’s involved with the 2” front lift kit? I’d like to level out my ‘06.

    If ever in an accident you'd be surprised what moves. If you ditch the seat bottom you'll get more space too, your choice though.

    They have many options, there’s just front strut spacers, front spacers and rear blocks, or new struts (Bilstein 5100) mine was just front a spacer though.
