    The truck is a 2021 1794 TRD Off Road.
    It came these options:

    Power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade
    TRD Off-Road Package (1794)
    Spray-On Bedliner



    I have added:

    Tail gate lock that works with the Fob.

    Side rails.

    Husky floor liners.

    Bed Extender.

    Outfitted the back for the dog. It is lined all the way around so she can't scratch the leather up or slobber on it. The floor is leveled to make it comfortable for her and she has a rug to lay on.

    I will get a winch and a bumper in the future.
    On order now:

    A.R.E. Z series topper. I was told it would take 12 to 15 weeks form when I ordered it to come in. It's due to ship on July 1. I hope to have it on the truck by July 6 or 7.

    Suspension build:
    I ordered the following part. The springs and shocks are projected to come in around the middle of August. No shackles will be added or replaced. Still thinking about regearing the rear end.

    1. I am going to raise the front 3 inches with Fox 2.5 shocks (with DSC adjust) for the front. (880-06-947)

    2. Going to raise the back 1.75 inches with Coachbuilder shackles.

    3. Going to use Fox 2.5 shocks (with DSC adjust) for the back. (883-26-006)

    4. Differential drop spacers. (RDY47-5005)

    5. Specialty Products Company 25480 Upper Control Arm

    6. Falken LT315/70R17 tires.

    7. 35 1/2 " spare.

    8. FUEL Off-Road Kicker Wheels, 17x9 - Bronze / Black

    Taking this in for surgery (lift) in a week. Should also be getting the topper around the same time.

    No rear brake line relocate kit? You might want to think about that when it gets some droop. Maybe I'm wrong, but to me it's cheap insurance. Takes like five minutes of labor.

    That is a good question. Sounds like something that I need to do right after I get it home.

    Edit:
    Ordered. Thanks for the heads up.

    Following along and have a few questions as I have a similar truck
    Why did you chose Fox over other shocks?

    do you think you will have tire rub?

    In terms of your cap, will it be color matched? Did you research other brands? If so pros and cons?

    looking forward to your updates

    I chose the Fox because I wanted a real nice ride when getting groceries but I also wanted the ability to adjust the shocks for serious off road. Now that we are done with the remodeling and other issue we can see some family trips to Moab. It's just a turn of the knobs for these shocks.

    I know that the tires will rub so there will be cutting.

    The topper is color matched. I did research other brands. It seems every brand has folks that do and don't like brands for particular reasons. I chose what I wanted mostly on the brand of my experience of my previous topper on my old F250. I also like the hinge system of the A.R.E. Z series.

    I forgot to include one thing about why I ordered the topper that I did. The lock will work with the fob just like all the other locks on the truck. When I unlock the truck the topper will lock also and vice versa.

    Installed fender flares in anticipation of the +1 offset wheels and lift that are going to be installed this week.

    Yeah. Sorry I didn't post them earlier. I fell off a ladder and broke a vertebrae in my back so I am running behind on a lot of things.

    I had some tire rub on the bumper and they had to cut some away. This might have been solved without cutting with bumper shims.

    Update time.

    The wife has a hip that hurts when she gets in so I have new extended power steps from AMP.

    I installed the factory electric lock on the tailgate.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XSD61XN?ie=UTF8

    I will update when I take pics. I have been just a little busy lately with plans for the new garage to replace the old garage. I can't get my truck in the old garage. It's the best excuse Ic an come up with but the wife bought it so it's good enough.


    Tomorrow, if the weather doesn't suck, I will install a SP100 SwitchPro power panel and switches for the lights that will go on on the new bumper.
    https://sdhqoffroad.com/collections...itch-pros-sp-9100-mount?variant=6913171324963


    I am also going to install upgraded battery terminals.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08CGCWY72?ie=UTF8


    If I have time I am also going to install RCI skid plates. They have been sitting around waiting for good weather.
    https://rcimetalworks.com/https:/rcimetalworks.com/07-19-tundra-engine-skid-plate/


    I ordered a C-4 Fabrication Overland bumper on March 8. They told me that the lead time will be around 11 to 12 weeks. Their site says 14 weeks. We will see which it is. When I get it I am going to cover it with spray on bed liner material.
    https://c4fabrication.com/products/tundra-overland-series-front-bumper-2014?variant=37525487714495


    I am going to order the lights when I get the notice that the bumper has shipped. I am still trying to figure out if I want a pair of 6 inch off road lights on the bumper.
    Pod lights (pair):

    Light bar:
    https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/s8-straight-led-light-bar/?sku=703003


    Also going to order a Warn 89611 ZEON 10-S Winch.

    I got some pics done for the previous post.

    In preparation for the new bumper I had to change the grill insert to a Pro insert. I ordered the full height bull bar and it would have interfered with the sensor on the old insert. The Pro insert positions the sensor lower. The lower height bar would not have offered any protection for deer.

    I also installed upgraded battery terminals and the Switch Pro 9100 as far as I can before the bumper and lights come in. I have not powered up the controller yet. I will do that when I hook up the lights.20220507_180118.jpg

    Installed the front skid plate today. Still waiting on the Valhalla cat plate.
