    Van,

    well thought out!

    I've always liked the MGM color and your truck looks great!

    The paint shine and wheels look rich which means if it was sunny it'd look even better!

    Everything looks top shelf! :thumbsup:!

    Thanks Jim,

    Truthfully, it was your wheels and your truck that inspired me :). It does indeed shine with the wax job and tires/trim treated with WaxAddict. That's some really good stuff. Introduced my nephew to it and we coated his new Mini Cooper. He loves it as well.

    BTW, if your in the Richmond area this coming weekend, I'm going to park the Tundra in the Cars & Coffee car show. Mine would look even better parked next to yours. :cheers:

    Thanks for the compliments Van!

    I owe knowing about WaxAddict and other products from Steve AKA @WarEagleSteve. Not only did he introduce me and other members to this great product but he also gave me my first bottle which I am happy I played that great gesture forward to you. I meet great people through this site. :thumbsup: I knew when we met that you'd try it and felt confident that you would like it.

    The PRO wheels look really good on your truck and I'm happy you bought them. Where did you get the TPMS sensors from? Did you have to take the truck to the dealer to get them programmed?

    I don't know if I'll be working this weekend or not. I should know by end of day Thursday whether I will need to or not. It is tempting to take a road trip to Richmond to get a chance to see your MGM up close and have a coffee. I like the idea of having a good cup of coffee and admiring our Tundras all detailed.

    Another member here is @Noodle who also has a beautiful truck and is in the Richmond area. Maybe he will see this and come too. What is the location of the Cars and Coffee show?

    I ended up pulling the TPMS out of the old wheels. I know I was originally up in the air as to go with the 18" or 20", but decided to just stick with eh PRO 18".

    The Cars & Coffee show is held every other weekend at:
    Regency Square Mall: 8 - 10am
    1420 N Parham Road
    Richmond, VA 23229

    I've only been to it once but thought it was cool. I think it would be fun to have a Tundra presence and would be great to meet @Noodle if he's interested. No biggie either way. If you wish to read about them, their site is: http://carsandcoffeerichmond.com

    *** From The Beginning ***

    Here is the Tundra on test drive of day of purchase. Probably was not a good sign on the mpg when gas was needed for the test drive.


    Anyhow, after purchase, life was grand.... It was the greatest thing since sliced bread.... Life could not bet better..... Get home and... What can I mod????

    I do a lot of hauling for the business and wanted to get the bed taken care of first. So, the first mods were:

    • BedRug bed liner
    • Rugged Liner II tonnear cover
    • AMP Bed Extender

    *** Suspension Mods ***

    I would have to say that of the mods I've done, the greatest performing ones are:

    Front Bilstein 6112 set at 1.9"


    Rear Bilstein 5160


    TRD Sway Bar


    The TRD sway bar made a huge difference in handling and cornering. I really like the handling and drive performance after these 3 mods.

    Got tired of the antenna hitting the garage door all the time, so I installed the stubby.
