    I've had my 2011 Tundra 5.7L Platinum for three years now. I spend a lot of time in the mud for work at remote sites, and this truck is AMAZING!! I will never drive another truck...

    Since this truck is for work and I'm redonk busy I haven't done much as far as mods, but I do have the following:

    2" leveling kit
    Toyo Open Country 35x12.5x20s
    LED Headlights
    BAKFLIP trifold tonneau cover
    BAKBOX undercover toolbox
    Undercover swingcase
    Transfer Flow midship replacement fuel tank (upgrade from 26 gal to 46 gal! MUST HAVE!!)
    Samlex 1500w modified sine wave inverter
    and a baller stainless steel plug in plate in my dash that I developed myself

    Welcome from NJ.

    What brand are your LED headlights? Is the whole assembly aftermarket or just the bulb?

    Just the bulbs, I didn't want to mess up the headlight tilt, wasn't sure whether the whole assembly would work...

    Do they make a big difference? If you still know the info, what brand/part number/source did you use?
