    rhino lined bed, weathertec mats, gear
    So im brand new to this forum after just picking up my 08 Tundra TRD Crewmax. Im looking to do some mods and will refer to this forum and you all for advice. Im coming from the Jeep world so i do like tweaking stuff.
    Right now on the Tundra its pretty stock. Has weathertec liners up front (any neat tricks as far as maybe velcro-ing the passenger side mat down so it doesnt slop around? it has no hooks that go into the floor.) Has a rhino lined bed. Also have it loaded up with assorted tools/med gear.

    What i'll use it for: living in Idaho i do a lot of mountain biking, white water rafting, shooting and hunting trips. Also, working on starting a family which is why we got the tundra. Gives us much easier rear seat access for child seats compared to the 03 Rubicon i had, but still allows me to hit up the desert or mountains to have fun.

    Mods im looking at so far:
    -Nfab bumper light bar (for those early morning offroad sessions to get to a hunting spot)
    -Lights for said bar-want to keep cost down here, maybe 6" on two inside
    tabs and 4" on the two outside tabs
    -Toytec 3"front 1"rear leveling kit- get nose dive gone and tuck 33's maybe 35's? (a little guidance here would be nice, i know backspacing etc ties in, but will it tuck?)
    -bug deflector and window vent covers
    -softopper canvas "camper shell"- i like the looks decent enough
    -possible grill swapout
    -never been a big fan of chrome, so ill be looking at cost effective ways of cutting the bling factor
    Im well aware that its a total poser pic but i havent had time to go play in it.

    Welcome!
    I have the Toytec 3" OME lift with 35" tires (315/70/18). IMO, 33" will look too small wth the lift...my 3" with 35" tires sat higher than Csuvipers taco on 33" and a 6" lift.

    @csuviper just did a grill swap the other weekend..check out our build threads, DIY, exhaust, intake, and tire threads.
