    This is a 02 Tundra, I bought from a friend about 5 years ago. It has 243k miles when I bought it.
    This is a list that I have done in the past and now I am going to make it a mid travel and add more body armor.
    Roof rack
    Front winch bumper with Tuffstuff 12.5k lbs winch.
    Bed rack for dirt bike
    Bilstein 5100 series
    Here is some photos of the truck at this moment.2017-11-11 09.37.00 HDR.jpg

    Update...
    This is a summary of the carnage on the desert camping trip 2 weeks earlier:
    Front diff carrier internal gear damaged.
    IMG_1204.jpg

    Broken rear driver lower shock mount.
    IMG_1201.jpg

    Lost the rear driver shock (ADS piggy back 3 weeks old) and broken rear driver ABS cable and parking brake.
    IMG_1189.jpg

    Ordered the front diff carrier from ebay on 113k Tundra same gear ratio. The part came from Minnesota so you know what to expect. I spent almost 2 days dipped in the vinegar and salt and it doesn't seem to help.
    I ended up rust removal wheel on the grinder it works.
    IMG_1216.jpg

    Remove the diff carrier alone.
    IMG_1210.jpg

    And installing it alone with my 13 years is old boy help the jack and the strap, it is finally installed.
    IMG_1218.jpg

    IMG_1219.jpg

    Few hours on the Friday late evening the front diff carrier installed and tested worked perfectly.

    I replaced both side inner and outer tie rod end due to some free play in it. Crescent adjustable wrench and 1 pipe wrench are able to handle the tie rod end.

    Update,
    Recently I drove on long steep hill freeway with AC on 80+ MPH and ambient temp is about 95 -98, I see the engine temp creep up little bit and if I slow down a bit the engine temp go back to normal. Timing belt, water pump package, radiator and fan clutch was replaced about 50 k miles ago so I don't know if this is normal for 295k miles engine so I need to slow down when go uphill or something else's wrong.
    Anyway, I decided to add hood louver hopefully it will take some hot air out of the engine bay.
