    Does anyone know what year the tundra came out with the double cab stepside model? I know the standard step side only had the access cab aka suicide doors. I saw one on the road with true 4 doors and a stepnside. I want one but can't find which year that is.

    Or are you referring to a doublecab with NERF bars?

    "The grille was updated in 2002 (for the 2003 model year) along with a new Stepside Cab which was a Stepside version of the Access Cab to get more competition with Ford and Chevy and the Double Cab version was added to the lineup in 2003."

    Guessing that's 2004 model year for the 1st gen double cab step side.

    Toyota never did a stepside 4 door tundra they are access cabs... Tho you can take a fleetside bed off and put the stepside bed on they are the same when it comes to bolt holes.. Bad side on the stepside now.. NO aftermarket like lights or anything the toppers are getting harder to find leer might be on the only one left i have a are on mine... bedrug forget it took me 3 or 4 months to find one ( very rare anymore).. watch it some of the bed parts are no longer made... :( do to the very small numbers out there..

    I own a 03 4x4 stepside love it it get some strange looks at times..

    Hi guys, I’m new to this and to the Tundra world. I’m finding it is nearly impossible to find a ladder rack that will allow for a tonneau cover. Anyone have any advice?

    In new to this as well. I received my 2003 access cab sr5 trd tundra after my father passed. He had decided that it wasn’t worth fixing but he loved it. Since then I’ve been working to repair it. Its been slow and sometimes expensive. As far as the engine and transmission go it’s been solid.even at 265,000 miles it still run smoothly and requires the basic maintenance. When I took ownership of it there were a few issues that need to be addressed. 1 the Massflow air sensor was bad. Which caused the engine to studder at around 2,000rpm. He replaced the fuel filter think that it was the issue. Wile replacing the filter he unknowingly pinched the fuel line. 2 it had a recall in the frame. He never used that option. Wile replacing the frame ‘on my part’ is where we found the fuel line issue.
