    I've been torn on going all white or going with black center bumper piece, I've seen pics of both, at first glance I felt the all white looked a bit cleaner. The UCAs came set up with most common alignment spec specific to the Tundra, dealer had no issue getting alignment within spec with no further adjustment to the UCAs required but I'm pretty sure the ability to adjust the UCA really doesn't come into play unless your at 3" or more on the suspension lift. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm fairly certain the Icon coil overs came adjusted to 2.5" lift over stock. I used the spaner wrench to minimize the difference between the driver and passenger side, driver side was about 3/4" lower than passenger on mine, I guess it's common at least according to members who installed the Toytec coilovers.

    Yes my performance shop said adjusted to 2.5 front and you obtain 1.5 in the rear from the ICON leafs that they swap in that comes with kit.
    This about levels it. I do not have an answer to your question on the Billet adjustment coming into play for 3 inches and above but those are
    among the trickest UCAs for racing etc.

    I have listed for sale all parts that came off my truck on Craigslist under autoparts / general / (2014 up Tundra) in the SF bay area
    if anyone has interest. The mirror caps, floor mats, stock air intake and stock fog lights are on hold for someone however everything
    else is available. Wheels/Tires, stock suspension parts, bumper etc. Not planning on shipping however just local pickup. Thanks

    Any rubbing issues with the tire and wheel setup? UCA, mudflaps, frame, liner, etc.

    Hello, The perf center installed wheels tires and suspension and took off the front plastic fenders as they did rub but only in a smaill area.
    my job to cut out the area that was rubbing but they are currently completely off now until i get to it. Other than that no issues what so ever
    and suspension rides awesome on the road. Have a few more items going on .... Icon stage one secondarys (front suspension dampeners)
    and hyd bump stops then D O N E and want to head up to some old mining roads in Carson City and get it off road a bit. Real happy with
    the wheels tires size. I do notice the milage dropped a few mph haha but not a concern.

    Thx Afafari for again grabbing those steps ... I never sold anything before that was not for sale and I did not have to be there to sell it.
    Nice to have met you and thx for the complement . Love your truck and color !

    Ran a gas milage check with the new suspension, wheels and tires. On highway, 420 mile non stop on CA HWY 5 mostly flat with a rise
    up the Grapevine from Los Angeles and back down hill then 300 miles of flat and speed between 65 and 70 mph I ended up with 15.7 miles per
    gallon. This seems pretty much close to the mileage when I had the truck stock.

    This was a zeroed out mileage highway only test so it does not show any cumulative city driving just the one stretch of 420 total miles highway at
    65-70 mph. I am getting combined less than stock understandably around town but not much less than 1-2 mpg lower.

    ICON Hydraulic Bump Stops, the stock ones had to be air chiseled off.

    ICON Stage 1 Secondary Dampeners
    Secondarys.jpg
    These tightened up the steering feel a bit more on road, compared to having the coilovers only. For off-road they effectively double the dampening ability.

    Annual surf trip to San Onofre state beach. Truck is perfect for loading 5 boards in and out in no more that 3 minutes and strapped. 3-4 foot waves all week and great to have tundra project finished after many delays with Icon and Method. Getting ready to do some off road stuff and found EXO ... expeditionxoffroad.com

    After much back and forth with Toyota parts department, my good friend and adjuster at the body shop got my TRD Pro steering
    wheel delivered for install. What they are claiming now is Toyota will not sell TRD pro parts (any) to a non TRD pro VIN number
    /owner. Anyway glad that is behind me and the drivability with a slippery woodgrain partial steering wheel is terrible. 1794 has some
    great standard features however the wheel is NOT one of them. Wrapping up the build on this thing and purchased a full spare wheel
    and tire same as other 4 Method/BF Goodrich so your not joker goin with a flat change.

    I'm glad I saw this! I was going to trade my 1794 for a Raptor but every time I drive one I think I like my Tundra more. Just hate having a black truck and I am off road A LOT. Trying to decide on just turning my 2014 1794 in to a TRD Pro. I want function, not looks.....kind of. Not a fan of all of the chrome on my truck. Looking for suspension options. I don't want to be too tall, I just want better performance in the dirt.
