    Just a quick question for you guys, I've been looking at some bull bars for my tundra and was wondering if anyone has one on their tundra with the black front bumper. I don't know if I should go with crome or a black one?

    Deck rail system, Bed divider, door sill protectors, LED reverse light bars, Aries Bull Bar with 28" 180 watt LED light bar, LED step lights, LED bed lights, driver-side grab handle, TRD Rear Sway Bar, BedRug bed mat and tailgate mat, Morimoto Fog Lights, more to come.....
    See my avatar to the left.... I went with an Aries textured black bull bar for mine and for mounting a light bar. I plan to black out the bumper end caps at some point as well as my grill and bulge surround. IMHO, black would look great on your truck!

    285/65 R20 KO2's work great with a 3/1 leveling kit. Any bigger, and you are in for some trimming.

    edit: thats with the factory wheels. With custom wheels you'd best ask others as to what worked for them.

    This is what I have vs what I want, and I'm almost positive with a leveling kit I should be good.

    Good size, a nice blend of height and width. You lookin at Toyo RT's or AT2's? Those are the only two off the top of my head that come in that size.

    close enough. A 285/65 R20 is actually 34.6" according to the calculators I've seen.

    That's the nice thing about saving the money for tires, most people have plenty of time to think em over. Or maybe that's just my method ha.
