    Went with ICI Magnum front, rear bumpers and side steps, Smittybilt 9500# winch, Vision X fog lights, Ridgid light bar, & fairlead rollers clip on license plate base.

    I added the biggest Toyota badge that I could find to the M1 grill after a lady coming out of a convince store said my "Thats a nice looking DODGE you have." :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Custom swing out tire carrier build. Smittybilt Jeep tire carrier, home made bumper brackets, & frame supports. I mounted my license plate to the bottom of the carrier and ran the electrical to LED license plate post lights to light it up. I then added the LED light bars and they are tied in to the stock back up lights. Carrier can haul 2 5 gallon Jerry cans and my highlight lack. Very nice to have a spot for the 20" wheel and 37" tire for sure. The extra 10 gallons of fuel may come in handy.

    Thanks guys. Figured that I would start my own own build page. Few things that I have not posted yet and a few other mods that are coming. Ive got my TRD sway bar, add a leaf kit, and Firestone airbags to get installed next. Ass end should be PLENTY stout after all of that.

    Crazy that there is no room for larger wheels & tires under the bed and I sure did not want to tie up my bed space. I had built one similar to this for my Tacoma and this was a must have on the Tundra for sure. I forgot to post up the pics of the support brackets on the back side of the bumper that bolt to the frame. That thick ICI bumper was still twisting a bit on the hinge side with all of that weight so I beefed that side up.

    So far no issues at all. Dose not rattle, shake, or make any noise. Carrier is rock solid back there.

    Add a leaf, Firestone airbags, and TRD sway bar are next. Ass end is sagging just a bit so I am going to level it out and add the airbags for just a little more umph.

    Decided to not do the airbags. Went instead with double leaf springs.


    Steel is much more reliable than rubber bladders, plastic hose, and air compressors mounted under your truck.
