    She's gonna be pretty. My Taco was black, I went Superwhite with the Tundra. Got my eyes on 18" (Methods or Ray10's - haven't decided) and 35" General Grabbers. Renovating my house at the moment, gonna have to wait til X-MAS

    I was looking at the Ray10's also... but availability is what decided it for me.
    I can buy Methods at any number of online sources and have wheels here in a day or two if needed.
    The Ray10's availability is spotty at best... if you can get anything at all.

    Seemed like a no brainer to me.

    Got the adjustable rear shackles in today for another 1" in the rear.
    Total lift now is 3/2 and I think its perfect with 1" of forward rake. (stock was 2")

    Just waiting for wheels and tires to arrive.

    Nice truck. I almost bought a Taco and loved my experiences with my brother inlaw's 2018 Taco but being 6'3"/6'4" and 300 pounds, it was just too small for me. I always struggled getting in and out. Also my wife loves the space all around so the Tundra just checked all of our boxes.

    Glad I didnt go with 37's.
    These 35's are plenty big for my pavement princess.

    Yeah... I feel your pain.
    When I want something, I want it "now"... not in "mid-August" or "whenever"

    I like the Methods just as much as the Ray10's... so it wasn't a difficult decision for me.

    I ordered them Thursday night. One arrived Saturday and the other three will be here today.

    Aaaand... here we are:

    I have upper control arms on order and will take it back to get the caster squared away in a week or so.
    It drives and steers great as-is... so no urgency. 20200805_123232.jpg 20200805_123240.jpg 20200805_123251.jpg 20200805_124154.jpg

    I like to pay it forward with this kind of info.
    I originally found the idea on TacomaWorld site and always appreciate a good hack/mod that saves money. :thumbsup:

    It actually does fit. (barely) :p

    Too long to put the door down unless I relocate my workbench... but the roof fin clears the door opening. The rubber garage door seal is exactly 83" high.

    My wife gets the garage for her 4runner... so no need to put mine inside unless i need to work on it out of the weather.

    Finally pulled one of our gold horse mats up from the basement. What’s the best way to hack this thing up? They are a real pain in the ass and I’m sure cutting them is no exception haha

    I just used a drywall square and utility knife.
    With a fresh blade it cuts through like butter.

    Congrats & Welcome!

    It's amazing what a simple lift & aftermarket rims/tires actually does to Tundras.

    Bad to BadAzz!

    Just got my phone mount situated.
    Really liking the ruggedness. :thumbsup:
    More hardware on the way for the wifes side... and longer arms to bring phone closer/lower.
