    Loving the Tundra, but there are a couple of things in the "dear Toyota what were you thinking / scratching my head here" category:
    • Remote start turns off when you unlock truck / open driver's door...really?
    • Smart key remote start doesn't work if you have no sort of Toyota subscription service?
    • Lack of 360 camera tech. I will look into aftermarket options for front camera.
    • Not able to roll down windows with smart key remote (on 06 Sequoia can roll down tailgate window remotely and on GM trucks can roll all windows down remotely)
    • External tranny cooler no more ....

    I love a white Tundra. Sure, the super cool colors are nice, but white is classic high class. That is a great Tundra, I woldn't mind the light in the middel.

    My wife’s 2019 RAV4 XSE has the window roll down option. But you have to ask the dealership to turn it on. Tech stream I think?

    you press the unlock button twice then hold it down and all windows roll Down about 3 inches?

    Wow! You didn't waste any time! The only upgrade on your wish list that I would warn you away from is the OEM LED bad light. There are MUCH better after-market options. I got the OEM bed light with my truck and am extremely underwhelmed. One of my wish list plans is to replace those lights with much better-performing after-market ones.

    Welcome from LA (Lower Alabama)!

    @Bakershack Thanks for the tips on the bed lights..you have an aftermarket alternative in mind yet? Ha haven't heard the LA thing before...that make you a Auburn or Tide fan?

    BAM!MIGO.. Installed the BAM 8" Standard exhaust thanks @dirtydeeds very solid built exhaust and smooth install. I took my time and put another coat of paint on the BAM and after removing the axle turn down section for the resonator install painted it again as with the 7" lift can see the exhaust around the axle.

    Debated on whether I would bother installing the resonator or no , but drove it with and without and WITH is the right answer for our needs...no drone, quiet in the cabin until you wake the beast then you can hear the deep tone / throaty sound!

    I just want to go back out and rev it up all night lol. I would post the video but phone is missing much of the deep tone and growl it produces. My 2YO looks at the truck now and says "VROOM VROOM" lol totally worth it right there!!

    Watch the youtube videos on the exhaust or save some time and call Keith at Dirtydeeds and tell him what sort of sound you want and whether you tow, have kids, etc.!

    Thanks @Major ! Went with the Tactilian large flag magnets as well! Still playing around with where to put them but at present have them on upper leading edge of bed.

    OHSH&TMIGO...Our 06 Sequoia even has a driver's grab handle - and now so does the Tundra! I use it all the time getting in and out instead of the steering wheel.20200907_201231.jpg

    Thanks! Thank you for your service sir. Hope you are enjoying PA - we lived there for 6 years before work duties returned us to IL. Beautiful state it wasn't the easiest decision to leave.

    Truck looks rad! I'm running the same suspension setup and 37's but 18's. I see you have a matching space - Where/how did you mount it? Still playing with ideas.
