    You mean he was flying more than 3 sheets in the wind and didn't give a flying flip about being coherent, or some cupcakes feelings, Lol.
    Don't sweat this one OP cause you don't appear to have problem with reading comprehension like others in different post, and/or take offense with something that's not. Your kool and good to go, so keep us informed with questions and the have to do's done.

    Man oh man, the bottom of that truck looks pretty bad, and thereby a money hole. I wouldn't invest anything until knowing the time the trk has left until being unsafe. Looks like you can put a hammer right through some of that stuff under there with one good blow. Either run it until ya find what you want, or start preparing a solid plan for swapping out parts and/or the frame with another, which is labor intensive. Like removing the body then sand blasting the undercarriage to see what's left standing.

    Lol, don't fool yourself energetic young man. Pics more so often show less than reality of what the eyeball sees.

    Put that trk in the air and start getting serious with a hammer and a HD paint or gasket scraper to bring the worst spots down to the metal, or through the rust to a hole before investing in that trk.

    The first burnout you do might separate the axle from the frame!!!! That does NOT look good despite what your uncle says

    Clean your MAF sensor in the intake. ONLY USE MAF CLEANER.

    If your AIP is going tits up its gonna cost you to replace, or there's a bypass on here. 05-06 owners can point you in the right direction.

    I would get a second opinion from Toyota... they did have a frame recall for this well known problem in the rust belt section of the country.

    I would not spend a penny on this truck until after making damn sure the frame, and suspension components were not rusted out.

    FWIW, if I was looking for a Gen 1 Tundra and I crawled underneath and saw all that rust, I would RUN away as fast as possible.

    Im going to try to crawl under and take better pics. My camera makes it look worse than it actually is. In person you can still see the paint... Now if you wanna see some real rust. Take a look at the next post of my friends 2007 Ford Tarus that had the tranny blow at 150k.

    The frame doesn't look too bad, yea it could be better but it's not crusty and flaking. Some time with a wire wheel and paint and you'll be alright. The rear axle makes everything look worse but mine looks the same, it's just a way of life in the rust belt.

    04-06 trucks never had a frame recall so you're out of luck there because the Limited Service Campaign ended in 2015 Toyota won't do anything for you other than try to sell you a new Tundra.

    How were you able to get the frame replaced on your 04?

    It qualified under the LSC in like May of 2015, but didn't get replaced until November 2015 I'm assuming because of backordered parts.

    Not 100% sure on the timeline since it was before I owned it.

    Not too sure if anyone has noticed this but on mine if you watch the battery needle it slight wiggles up and down the 12v middle tick. Anyone else noticed? I have the upgraded 180 Amp alternator from the factory.

    Does anyone know where / how the speaker wireing is ran from the head unit to the door? Im going to have a dual amp setup (One for the Sub and one 4ch for the doors). I want to mount a small 4 ch amp behind the new head unit but I dont think its going to fit. Any ideas on where it could be mounted or how the cables are ran? I know this sounds kinda stupid but maybe amp in the engine bay? Also for those who were interested and wanted me to keep them updated on things I do/did, I just replaced the wiper blades. I have pics if you wanna see them. Nothing special.

    Once you get the radio out there's a lot of space in the dash it may not fit directly behind but you can go off to the side.

    On the speaker wiring the stock wiring will be fine up to about 75w/speaker. If you want to run new wiring the hardest part will be getting through the door boots. A coat hanger will be your best friend, then zip tie it up to an existing wire run under the dash. Rear doors it should be easy enough to pull the sill pieces and tuck it under the carpet to the dash.

    An amp won't be happy under the hood, heat and moisture will be a problem even for a marine rated amp.

    Yea, I figured that it wasnt a good idea to put the amp there.

    This is what Im looking to get: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K0YZFY...olid=18O76E8WRP2QH&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

    It says its 400w but I dont plan on running it on full power. Where does the harness from the door? I asume by the glove box? or thru the engine bay? I guess what I am trying to ask, how is it ran?

    Also, Since (I think) Im going to be tapping power from the radio circut for the 4ch amp and the head unit, I would need to upgrade the fuse to something higher amperage? Whats in there now? 20A?

    You'll want an 8 gauge wire feeding it because it'll pull more power than the stock wiring can handle.

    Wiring harness runs along the front of the firewall under the dash. Here's the diagram.
