    So I finally have some money to put into my truck. 2010 Tundra SR5, 5.7L V8, 2WD.
    Everything was stock when I bought used two years ago with 21K miles.
    Since then
    Black Weathertech Mats
    20inch black rims off 2016 tundra with BF Goodrich LT 285/55 R20 (32" tires)
    Just ordered 2" leveling kit, has not come in yet.
    Yeah that's it. Taken really good care of it as far as changing oil, car washes now and then, keeping inside clean, not letting people I don't trust eat in my car, no major scratches, etc.

    Really want to do more to it but there is so much to do and I don't know exactly where to start.

    Things I definitely want to do
    Sun deflectors on front and back side windows. I heard they make rattling noises if you get going fast, looking for a good brand.
    Lights- want new head and tail lights, seen people with halos etc and was wondering good set up.

    Things I maybe want to do
    Plastidip chrome, wasn't sure on all or certain parts.
    Fender Flares- I don't think they look as good with tires that aren't offset
    LED lights on inside- I see them really cheap at walmart, would want to spend money on good ones to get even lighting throughout.

    Any other must do or highly recommended modifications/upgrades I should consider, I'm open to all options. Doesn't have to be anything major or expensive. Little upgrades here and there can go a long way IMO.

    My truck will be parked outside most of the time starting in August, no room in garage in the house I am moving into. Just a thought.

    I've been looking, so many decisions to make haha. But I will definitely keep looking. Not one to rush decisions and always looking to save money.

    Welcome from CO Dylan. It's ironic that you have a 2WD drive Tundra. I was just commenting earlier on the lack of folks like yourself that have 2WD versions. We here at T.com are just not only about 4 wheeling and all the $$$ that can be spent upgrading a 4X4 Tundra. We need more of you here. I bet your 5.7L hauls ass. Stick with us . We can also help you spend your money on your 2WD Tundra. heh....heh Others here will no doubt chime in soon enough. :thumbsup:

    Thanks! And it does haul ass haha. Well, depending on what you are comparing it to. Just took it for drive first time on new tires, definitely needs an alignment but not going to hurt driving a day or two while I wait on my leveling kit to come in.
