    Thanks everyone, I appreciate the welcome!!! I'll be working with Bob to get a page setup and will include everything available for the Tundra. New parts will be added as we finish up prototyping and testing. Also wanted to send out a Huge Thank You to everyone that has given our products a try and followed up with feedback. It always helps improve a part if needed and let others know what works and doesn't.

    I can't say enough good things about dealing with him. I'm super satisfied with the help I got and the results with the carrier drop from him.

    Hi David, Most of the roof racks I've come across/seen are on or for Crewmax's. Will there be one specifically fitted for the Double Cab owner?

    Good to see you here at Tundras.com, David. You will find many members from TT. It bodes well for this relatively new forum that vendor of your caliber joins it.

    Sharing some Facebook info:

    NEW PRODUCT!!!

    Hello Tundra Owners, I have a new Item we just finished up on. Steering has always been a weak point and especially after lifting your truck the angles can be scary steep. Not only are the OEM tie rods maxed but they are the weak link. We've come up with a new design, not only are they able to increase travel in either direction. They are down right HUGE! 7/8" Heims ,Stainless Steel high misalignment shims and a 5/8" or 3/4" center bolt depending on application....

    Kits cover factory applications all the way up to 12" plus.

    BDS
    ProComp
    Zone
    CST
    MaxTrac
    BulletProof

    Please email ekstrom_design@yahoo.com for any questions.

    Nice. Probably good for those with 6" plus of suspension lift, no?

    Over the past few years I've built many different configurations for the Tundras. Mostly crewmaxs but quite a few for the double cabs too. I'm prototyping a all new rack system and bed rack system that will cover both models. Something we can build a bit quicker and ship anywhere. Details will come later this year but its going to be AWESOME!

    Thank you I appreciate that! I know how it is working with companies that can only offer what they're reading from their spec books. Most of the times you end up not knowing exactly if its going to fix the problem or achieve the results you're looking for. Doing things twice is painful anyway you look at it lol

    Thanks for posting @tat2ude39

    I'm just finishing up on our new steering kits. its been in the works for quite some time now and am so excited to get these out. What a difference they make! From factory spindles to lifted and VERY lifted applications these will help keep those tires straight and secure. The factory tie rods are great for stock applications but as soon as the tire sizes go up and geometry
    changes the tie rod ends take a beating. Believe it or not the factory pin dia is larger than the pin dia used with BDS and Procomp lifts. The center pin holding the tie rod end in place is small and so are the ball joint in the rod end. Steep angles and stress wear them out quickly and allow the tires to chatter. Our New Steering kits use a cryogenically treated 7/8" heim with stainless steel high misalignment shims and increases the pin dia to 5/8".
