    That doesn't look fun lol. But I can try my best. Doesn't hurt to learn right? As for power, where would I get it from? The battery directly? Orrr somewhere else?

    Direct from the battery.

    You don't need to follow the current speaker wiring. Disconnect it at both ends and cap it off, then run your new wiring the easiest way without it interfering with the steering/pedals.

    So let's see if I got this. Both amps tap from battery. Use 8awg for the 400w amp and 0awg for the sub. For the door speakers, run my own to the amp. The amp should fit around the radio space after changing my head unit. I also assume from the battery use a distribution block to help keep things clean. as for the ground, I can just connect to the body. Should I consider getting a bigger battery?

    Also, is there simple things to do to bump the stock 280ish hp to 300 or more?

    Tylorert, Im new to this group, tundras, and this thread.
    In 54 years old. Im a Retired truck driver of 19 years. And here is my input;
    1. Save, save, save money. Someday you'll be kicking yourself because of some expensive thing you bought and your out of toilet paper.
    2. Your hearing is extremely important. With listening to loud exhausts, trucks/equipment and music. Im paying the price with bad hearing.
    3. Drifting is a kick in the pants, but driving out of control isnt. A friend of mine was acting stupid, drifting around a residential corner, hit a kid, swerved into a curb flipping his car. Killing himself and the child. His parents were sued and lost everything. Just because they're son was showing off.
    Buy an old pos and drift safely.
    4. And I will probably make some people upset with me. But I think people who have a huge @ss stereo and or a lifted truck with every bullsh** item on it, are compensating for their little penis.

    The best thing is to learn about everything. Be a sponge as I would tell my truck driver students. So YOU can decide what is going to help you. Go to wrecking yards. Learn how to work on your own stuff. Im disabled and I have learned how to weld, make money repairing other people cars.

    I agree alot of what you said. Im not planning on doing anything stupid with mods and upgrades. Me and a group of friends like to do faster late night driving to the city but thats about it. Im involved with a car club but I dont plan on doing anything stupid that could danger me, and others around me. Yea I do want to do my sound system but thats mainly bc my 05 stock audio is very poor for the music I like (EDM, Rap/Hip-Hop) and the stock subs make no noise at those low frequencies. Plus I would like to have a back-up camera, android auto etc. Will I play it loud all the time? Not at all. With friends? Maybe. Welcome to tundras.com Im newer too. Got any pics of your truck?

    For everything the OP wants to do, I would say get a 4 banger 5-speed regular cab compact truck, and go nuts. That configuration is nearly indestructible from any manufacturer, you can practice hooning all day and not break a thing ever. Then go find a gravel road, or an icy parking lot. Drift all you want. When I was a kid, I remember my dad drifting our 85 VW Vanagon. You can drift anything on ice!

    Well said. Well almost all of it. Bessie disagrees with the stereo comment.

    If you're planning to keep that truck a while, I'd do something about that frame rust.

    I would take a wire brush/wheel to all the rust. Get all the flakes off that you can. The rear axle looks especially concerning. From there you have a few different options. Members here have used products from POR15 to Ospho. Final step would be to get something on there to protect it like Wool Wax.

    If you search on youtbe there are a lot of videos that show different methods for tackling vehicle rust.

    Amazing. A Thread Titled ‘A Few Questions’ is 5 pages long!:D

    I’d run that truck into the ground, at this point, based on what I see. Its past saving the frame/axles. Just enjoy her for as long as you can!

    Pray for a frame donor.

    Thats expensive (for me at least) Anyone wanna help me start a gofundme for my truck to make her live hehe.

    But seriously, what are the chances that there is a damaged wire? Or blown fuse? I found a snapped wire around the battery, and if I can recall, its purple. Its not in a wire loom its independent.

    Very small. Those injection pumps like to fail. Hence the bypass.

    Granted, I don't have one so I'm not well versed in them.

    Yep, I've done a full conversation. Every light is an LED.

    Do the LED lights talk to you or just each other ? How do they have a conversation by doing this conversion ?

    Mine only talk with each other. I press my map light switch and all the interior bulbs turn on at the same time. Singing Hallelujah!
