    Finally, my first build thread now that I've got some things to add to my truck and show off.
    It has taken me a little while to finally get the pieces and take pics but I'm slowly getting started.
    More will come as I do more work to me Tundra.

    Being in the FD and sometimes having to respond to emergency calls off duty or volunteering you need to be seen and heard. My first modification was adding emergency lights and a siren to my truck.

    Found this light online and mounted it to the windshield.

    Bought some lights to go in the back and had an interesting time trying to figure out how to mount them. Then went ahead and mounted them to the ceiling, didn't really like putting screws in my ceiling but it had to be done.

    Once I had the lights mounted and working I need to install my siren. I played around with a few areas and settled on the side of my center console to mount it. I also mounted the switches for the lights next to the siren to have easy access to everything.

    The siren speaker was a little tricky at first but found a great spot to mount it.WP_20140612_015.jpg WP_20140612_016.jpgWP_20140612_017.jpg

    About a month ago I had a small accident where my truck slid into the concrete wall of the Hwy in the rain. Thankfully the tire and rim took the hit and had no body damage. I knocked my alignment to hell and warped my front driver rim. Got some cosmetic damage to the front and rear driver side rims.WP_20140415_007.jpg WP_20140415_009.jpg

    Got 4 slightly used rims from a guy in AL off his 2012 Taco. They're 16's like my original rims and fit great.

    Test fit of the new rims.

    The dash light was an after market brand. The rear lights and siren are Whelen

    The dash light is by Axixtech. The rear lights are Whelen TIR3's, and I think the siren is a Whelen 295HFSA1. Hey Fiddle, don't forget that your dear old brother helped out with these mods a bit!

    I remember brother. Trust me if it wasn't for you it would have taken even longer to install and not look so good.

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Can you explain the secondary AIP ?
    Edit: nevermind. Air injection pump. Remembered the other thread.

    Ok, know it's been a long time since I've been online and posted anything due to working almost everyday. I finally have enough money to buy parts I need and am about to change out my secondary AIP. What's keeping me from doing that is I have no clue what gaskets/seals I need to replace when I do the tear down to get to the pump.

    Any ideas on what I need and where to buy from??
