    New frame (2017). Advanced Fiberglass Concepts fenders and bedsides coming in Jan 2019! Moose-crash damage finished!! Upgrading to 13WL, custom painted calipers. Total repaint and new wheels pending.
    Hey Lads!

    Getting ready to retire...anticipating the things I will now have that were lacking in my early years. When I was young, I had the time but not the money to play with trucks. When I was older, I had the money, but not the time. Shortly I shall have the time and money to devote to my Ol' Faithful, 2002 Tundra.

    Good thing too, since a moose took out my fender, windshield, front door, and bedside last month!



    A shame, since they just put a new frame under her in 2017!! Gonna' do it right. I have Advanced Fiberglass Concepts fenders and bedsides arriving this month. (Ya! No more ugly, 1st Gen fender flares!) Already fixed the door (actually both--the other side had the door and rocker panel cave in by a hitch-ball.)

    I just painted some upgraded, 13WL brake calipers, and sent for some of Speedy's Garage caliper decals, in preparation for...some new wheels! Yippee!!

    Can't wait for the transformation to take place. Once I pull the pin on retirement I'm going to build me some custom, fiberglass bumpers, projector headlights, do a lift...who know what else!

    I wouldn't trade my 1st Gen for a brand new late model. Love the in-between size and power to weight ratio with the 4.7L engine. A shame they quit making them. I can see a part-time career restoring them for resale!

    Anyways, I suspect I'll be hanging around with y'all a lot, but from a much warmer climate (Tennessee?).

    Sure will. I tried posting the moose-crash damage photo from my Facebook page in my Into, but it just left an IMG placeholder. Do I need to post pics from a photo website?

    Imana try and put together a bedside replacement vid since I've never seen one for the 1st Gen Tundras.

    Well, I'm sorta looking around the north foothills on the east side of TN. Somewhere between tri-cities and Chattanooga. I like Nashville, but it's too flat (plus the night life would probably kill me). I'm used to mountains, but a little tired of living off grid. Neighbors would be nice LOL

    Well, then you know Rockwood! Lawrence's is right next to our post office. You were only about 10 miles from my digs.

    Since your still around to tell the tale I'd say you got off lucky on the moose strike.

    New frame (2017). Advanced Fiberglass Concepts fenders and bedsides coming in Jan 2019! Moose-crash damage finished!! Upgrading to 13WL, custom painted calipers. Total repaint and new wheels pending.
    That's three in three years. I took one out last year with the brand new Tundra they loaned me when they put the new frame under mine. Took a third one out two years ago with Polaris 1000 (busted his leg and had to off him with my carry pistol). They generally get out of my way now when they see me on the road. LOL

    I would have to be insane to go any further north than I already am!!
