    Hopefully it looks the way the pix show and is mechanically sound...then again with the low mileage and warranty, it shouldn't be an issue

    you'll love the Tundra. I had a bit of buyer remorse when driving off the lot, and looking at my lowly taco as I left it. But, then I left all 5.7 liters and 405 foot pounds on the road, and quickly forgot about the taco :

    I am debating getting a 3" lift and swapping the 35" Duratracs onto the rock warrior wheels for now or putting on the 33" terra grapplers and keeping with just the Toytec level kit it currently has on it.

    Lol. I think 35s are the way to go. Just trying to figure out the quick plan for now with limited funds. Need to look at my wheel and tire thread and research a little more on if I can put theses tires on the RW rims without wheel spacers. Also trying to figure the best route to get the most out of my tacoma when I sell it.

    1. Leave the Tundra suspension as is. Install my 33" (50% remaining) Nitto Trail Grapplers on the RW wheels. Leave the 35" (40% remaining) Duratracs on the Tacoma for sale. 3" lift, new wheels and 35s would come later down the road, probably after the 33s die.
    2. Install a 3" lift now and swap the 35" Duratracs on the RW wheels. Swap the 33" Trail Grapplers on the Tacoma for sale. Added cost of pulling the 35s off the tacoma and swapping with 33s. Potential of new wheels down the road but wouldn't be as high on the list if the 35s fit.
    3. Install 3" lift now with the 33" Trail Grapplers until they need to be replaced then upgrade to 35" new tires. Tacoma keeps the Duratracs for sale.

    4. New 3" lift, new 20" wheels, new 35" tires now. $$$$

    That's what I'm thinking. Get the lift on quick with the tire size I want.

    I just pulled the trigger on a Grillcraft Grill so that I can get the look that I really like. Similar to the Satoshi I did to my Tacoma but this one will sit flush with the front of the grill. The grillcraft will also not require the added fiberglass and bondo work that the satoshi did. It should be as easy as cutting out the inside plastic and screwing the grill on. It will look like this on my Tundra:

    I will post install pics and final product when I get around to installing.

    I must have been in a tunnel when i got the truck because i didnt realize it has window tint. Looks lighter than the 20% on my Tacoma. Guessing it is the legal 27%.
    Also the tailgate is already de-badged. All i have to take off is the 5.7L tags. Leaving the Rock Warrior stickers for now.

    Move them over and remove the baffle. May eventually replace with something a little louder and lower tone.

    Don't want to spend the money on them. Not an essential for me.
