    This build makes me drool. I love everything about it. How do you like the VLED reverse lights?

    Awesome exhaust setup! I still need to get an exhaust, my truck sounds like a Prius.

    Thats a nice looking truck. It may just be me but I've found that as I've gotten older I have become more content with stock (2011 SR5). Keep up the good work so I can live vicariously through you young whipper-snappers.

    I got the hornblasters kit and then went to a shop to get it installed. They did it and then it started causing problems because it leaked.. They said it was a bad air tank and connections so they gave me a China made air honk that's loud.. Not as loud as the hornblasters.. But it gets the job done . But it's now starting to leak as well and I will have to just get a new air tank ..

    No way can you just buy a truck and keep it stock. Even if it was a pro with LT and all the goodies. Has to be modded. Love the work you have done to yours. Keep it up. Plenty more mods to do ;)

    I was thinking on going with Spyder lights for my 2016 but I am concerned that I will lose light at night. Is this the main reason you changed back?

    I liked them . The output was about the same as stock to me and it didn't have an even output..it was bright in one place and dark in another. But the real reason was that the led bar was not bright enough to be considered a "daylight running light". Others also had problems with them getting condensation but mine didn't . If you like the way they look . Go for it. But if you're thinking that you're going to get more light... I wouldn't get those . Retrofit is the way to go.

    Hi, great Tundra. I was wondering if any of the mods you made invalidate the warranty? I'd like to make a few changes but don't want to run the risk of cancelling the warranty.

    Looking great to date. There's either never enough road or there's someone slow in front of you when your wanting to test out new additions to your truck. I'm wondering now how a BAMuffler might sound on my truck with my DT headers and midpipes? :)

    IMG_1259_zpsnke3cjfw_0bb2def0f5f7dae5283352995a73dd918e1013d2.jpg Updating the original thread .
    40" Rigid Radiance installed in the grill. I know I could've gotten a cheaper bar for far less money but I just didn't want to deal with any issues that occur in the longrun. If something goes wrong with this one at least I can call/email/Instagram/Tweet Rigid anytime. 4wheelparts wanted 200-400 to mount the bar because they said " we would need to fabricate the mounts ". I did some basic measurements and the brackets looked like they would fit perfectly. took the grill off and measured it to drill holes. The bar was rubbing against the middle support in the middle of the grill and it was also lower than I wanted. So I put 1/4 inch spacer between the frame and the bar, the bar was high enough to not rub against the frame. I will post output pictures once i can get it wired up! was going to just post it all at once but couldn't resist.

    Much better with aggressive tires. Tires really make a build.

    Love the truck, I have some T6's to install and was wondering if you are driving the T3's off the built in flasher or off of a controller?
