    Hi everyone

    I'm located in Las Vegas and just bought my 1st Toyota ever: A 2017 Tundra SR5 4x4. Love it. I'm a former Land Rover guy (2 Defender 110 landies over the years) and as I got older I got tired of unreliable vehicles so went with Toyota.

    I've started mods - chrome delete parts are on the way, 275/70R18 BFG KO2s fitted and Bilstein 6112/5160 with Zone Offroad UCAs and diff drop kit ordered for installation next week. I plan on the 1.9" setting up front and no lift in the back.

    Next mod: Skid plates for the front, TC and 38 gallon tank and rock sliders. Then I have to stop spending or I'll have to get a divorce :)

    Looking forward to all the advice and guidance here and hope to run into some of you in the desert somewhere.

    Cheers

    Thank you. I haven't decided yet, but I've been referred to MCM Fab & Design since they are focused on Toyota. Any advice on a trusted installer?
