    Welcome from CO. Please tell me you have lived there for a while and not recently arrived from Kommiefornia. (Me, 13 yrs.) Don't worry, you will be overloaded with info soon enough. Your Tundra is more than capable in handling Oregon logging roads and all the other cool places to 4 wheel. It's all about experience and to not get too worried about the occasional scratch. SC would be last on my list. Plenty of good suspension upgrades, tire/rim combos. You are in Oregon. You have 381 HP stock. Plenty. Exhaust should be on your short list too.

    That would be nice, but I'm thinking start small. Installed a k&n intake. Thinking exhaust next. Looking to make it sound like a truck and squeeze out a couple more ponies.

    From Oregon here. The TRD sway bar was a nice upgrade for me for when I'm on curvy country roads. Depending on what you want, a locking rear diff would be good upgrade to so.

    Thanks. I'm sure you know more than I do, but what makes the stock intake better? Does it have something to do with the computer?

    I guess what I was asking was how the stock intake flowed better than the k&n 63 I put in it. Not that I noticed a real difference in power, but I was hoping it would have given me a few more ponies.

    Would love a locking rear for the central oregon mud and snow. Baby steps for now though.

    You won't find a true dyno report showing it increases HP. They sound great at WOT, but performance wise? Nah. They do look great under the hood though too.
