    I'm not new to tundra's and certainly not to toyota. Owned 30 plus toyota's and this is my 6th tundra. One was supercharged, all were lifted. This one I got last Friday and it's in the ship getting a 7" BDS coil over lift and new wheels and tires. I will be selling stock TRD coils soon. I have won truck pulls with my tundra's beating out all Ford Chevy and Dodge boys and own a construction business were everyone knows my trucks for years and know there is nothing they can't do. Even the Tacoma and before they had a name just a 4x4.
    Here it is in the showroom and I will post finished on Friday. IMG_10841.jpg IMG_10831.jpg

    Congratulations on the new truck! Keep posting pics as your truck progresses. What part of the country are you in? You shouldn't have any problem selling the TRD pro suspension.

    Sourh west Michigan. I looked a little on here and it looks like it should sell. Stock wheels and tires are going to be sold to someone at the dealership. Thanks

    Here is a just ok picture of it in the garage before I took it in. I always have the dealership take off any badging so you can see no tundra or 5.7 20170110_144040.jpg

    Not many red on here even as I've looked. I think I am really going to like it. I will be bugging the guy tomorrow to see if it's done. Cant wait to see it lifted

    Welcome from San Diego. Excited to see your build. Like the fact you thought ahead and had the dealer take care of the de-badging. I guess after 30 toyotas they owe you a few things including a steak dinner ! Good luck with all.

    Yes. With the truck warm and clean it takes them a few minutes and yes with all I've got from them they don't question much.

    I'm already jealous of whoever grabs your stock suspension!

    It's turning heads. The TRD duals sound good to. I was going to put some two chamber flow masters on but I may just leave it alone

    Good looking ride. I got the same lift on its way for mine. Can I ask what size tires/rims/offset? Also did you change the control arms or add shackles?

    I have 20x10 wheels and 35 12.5 tires and yes you need to make sure you are getting 7 inches in the rear as well since on anything other than a pro it would level the truck but the pro starts level so u did an extra inch block and shackles for now
