    Is it me or does any of the Tundras come with Light sensors to turn on your headlights automatically? Seems like an oversight given the well equiped truck I have..

    Also is there anyway of boosting the satellite signal? It is horrible, I lose it going under trees and forget it when its cloudy.. I need my Howard Stern uninterrupted..

    Thanks

    The SR5's do not come with automatic headlights. You have to get a limited or higher trim to get them. Coming from a Silverado myself, I too was shocked not to see my truck have auto headlights. I have had mine for 6 months now and I no longer give a damn about auto headlights. This truck blows my Silverado out of the water. Can't help with the satellite signal as I have no issues with mine.

    I have the limited and have it. Although, I don't care for it and do not use it. I don't like how the parking lights are always on, no matter if you're lights are completely off. I would rather have a "stealth" mode and not have any lights on at my command. Then again, you can hear my truck with TRD duals lol.

    There is a mod to lose the DRL's. Maybe on T Talk or T Solutions. I'll try to find it.

    I remember this mod somewhat. Was wire placement change. One fool said "Why go thru all that trouble, just remove the bulbs" . Ahhhhh>>>> Someone had to remind him that they are used for blinkers. :homer:

    $3.99 no brainer I will order that, if they don't fit o-well.
    I am lazy when it comes to lights, so it will take some getting use to.

    My Tundra does blow Chevy out of the water 4-Sure!!.

    Just added Rims and removed the decals....
    BTW: Can you remove the 5.7L V8 tag as well? I see he didn't remove his in the tutorial.

    Thanks

    The AudioVox has mixed reviews, but for $4 bucks you might as well try it.
    When you are done washing your truck, you can come and wash mine.
