    Current Mods
    OME Lift 613 Coils, Dakar rear Leafs
    TRD Rock Warrior Wheels 35x10.50R17 Kenda Klever RT
    Ironman Pro Forge UCA's
    Valhalla Shields


    Purchased a 2019 Platinum on 7/31/22 to replace my 2007 Limited. It was a one owner dealer serviced truck with 80K on the odometer. At this point I'm primarily swapping parts over from the 2007 I plan on keeping the suspension, wheels, tires, RTT/bedrack and Valhalla's from the 2007. I had just freshened up the OME suspension and put new 35x10.50's Kenda Klevers on the rock warrior wheels less than 7K miles ago.

    Picking it up and driving back




    2007 Tundra Limited


    Test fitting wheels going with the RW's with a 1" spacer up front.




    Pulled the running boards




    Went for a bike ride this morning


    Then spent the afternoon swapping the rear suspension




    Hopefully finish up the rear suspension tomorrow.

    Finished up the rear suspension today, soaked the u-bolts in the parts washer overnight. I'll order new u-bolts and a OME add-a-leaf, it's going to need it for the high clearance rear bumper that's planned in the near future. Any thoughts on U-bolt flip kits did it on my old tacoma but I also relocated all the shock mounts and towers.





    I had read that the OME springs and shackles rub on some exhaust systems, at full droop w/o shocks I was getting contact with shocks and under it's own weight I don't see any issues.



    Shot of it in the driveway, hopefully I can swap the front out on Tuesday and get it in for an alignment and the wheel sensors swapped on Wednesday at a friends shop.

    Spent the last 2 days swapping the front suspension over, Tundra parts are definitely beefier than my last Tacoma.







    Curious how the 813 coils will feel without a bumper and winch, we do have a front bumper planned but it'll be a while until we can start working on it with @STravis . I currently have 2 winches to choose from the Warn M1200 that's in the ARB on the 2007 or I have a Warn Series 15 in a box that I'm thinking may be a little overkill.


    On it's wheels again...



    I was able to come up with 3 spares tires and a jack stand to leave the old truck on. Rock Warrior wheels with 35x10.50R17 Kenda Klevers are cleaned up and in the bed for tomorrow's alignment and wheel sensor swap. Ordered 4- 1" Bora spacers and picked up a set of new TRD spline lug nuts and locks.





    It sure is a lot easier when parts come out of the box and go on the truck vs swapping parts from truck to truck but sometimes you just gotta make it work.

    Alignment done, wheel sensors swapped Rock Warrior wheels w/35x10.50R17 Kenda Klever RT on OME 613's and Dakar leafs rear.



    I found a solution for the NLA Rock Warrior center caps and it's a KMC wheel center cap T174K85-S2, I need to order some larger stickers but these worked to cover the KMC logo.





    So I've still got more to do but this will work for now.

    Went out this morning after breakfast. The 613 Springs are really stiff, looking forward to adding some weight with a bumper and winch.



    Dakar rears seem to be working just fine.

    Installed a set of Ironman Pro Forge UCA'S this evening going for an alignment in the morning.





    Bora 1" spacers added front and rear a few weeks ago.

    Installed the 1/4" aluminum Valhalla plates this evening, bought them used from a member in AZ and had them on my 2007. I ordered a Valhalla front skid that I'm still waiting to ship.

    Clean build! Digging the 35x10.50. Thought it would look silly on the massive tundra but it fits the truck nicely.
