    First, a HUGE thanks to Earl at ESP truck accessories for the long box that I installed this morning. Man, what an amazing product and great build quality. Early fixed the one downfall of the Tundra Crewmax which is no rear storage. For those contemplating this mod, I highly recommend it. Install took me about 2 hours as I really took my time and ensured my OCD personality covered every detail. I also installed the X2 Power battery in place of my new OEM battery. I live in upstate NY and don't take chances when it comes to ensuring my baby starts. Lastly, I installed the TRD rear sway bar today, along with new Husky X-act contour mats (also highly recommend), and painted door handles/mirror caps. I have a new set of 295/55/20 Nitto Ridge Grappler's that will be here by weeks end. Also installed the TRD shift knob which has to add at least 50 hp :) Here is Gertrude, my new '18 Platinum.

    Nice mods so far. Are you keeping or replacing the wheels when you get the Nitto's?

    I am keeping the factory wheels for now. The '18 Platinum wheels have a new darker gray insert color to them which looks nice with the silver. I thought about going with some black wheels, but may do that down the road after the warranty runs out and I put a small lift. Thanks for the compliment!

    The actual wheel is the same, but the '18 wheels have a darker gray painted insert unlike the pre-'18 wheels which were a light gray painted insert.

    Very nice! With the ESP storage box, do you notice any extra road noise in the cab after removing the foam for installation? I'm really wanting to get one, but I've heard some say they do and some say they don't.

    Great looking truck! I really like the ESP long box, that may be my first change in the new truck.
