    My uncle owns a shop and a buddy of his wrecked his 2015 Tundra. He had a supercharger on it that he is looking to move quick now that the truck is gone.

    He's only looking to get $1k for the supercharger, CAI, gauge pod, chip, fuel pump and exhaust.

    Seems like a NO BRAINER. Im waiting on info of what model it is.

    My concern is that my daughter is due in December. I need a reliable truck with her for daycare, doctors, etc.

    What are the REALISTIC headaches I'm likely to face if I pull the trigger?

    Do it!! Since your truck is a 16' you'll need an aftermarket tune from Bully Dog. @dirtydeeds sells these.

    Thanks Chris. Its an exciting time!

    For $1k, it might even be something I just buy and stuff in my basement until I have my head wrapped around everything. I would like to think I could recoup the $1k even if I decided to sell it in the future....

    Maybe if anything, at least put the exhaust on now? haha

    As long as it's not damaged. GET IT!!! If it's a little damaged, GET IT ANYWAYS!!! Worst case, you can flip it for a couple thousand profit.

    I'll talk you out of it since no one else is. Buy it and sell it to me for $1100. Use the $100 profit for diapers. It's the prudent thing to do ;) hope I was able to help.

    Buy it. It will help you get the lady to the hospital faster when the baby comes. You can even use that as an excuse to convince her it will be money well spent!

    I did it. Pulled the trigger. Turns out the exhaust is a TRD exhaust also. I planned on dropping $900 on that soon anyway so I'm basically getting the supercharger with all the parts and pieces for $100. Insane.

    I can't believe I'm doing this....lol
