    Mine name's Elliot, I just picked up a 2003 Tundra Stepside SR5 with the 4.7L V8 with only 93k on it now. So far i've put a K&N air filter, strut spacers, a 12" Kicker sub, and 265/70-17 Toyo Open Country AT's. I'm lookin to build it into a fun desert rig, on a college budget so nothing big.
    The upgrades i'm hoping to do:
    Front end: Camburg UCA, 2.5 coilovers, Fiberglass fenders, and prerunner style bumper
    Rear: Convert pack into progressive pack, upgrade rear shocks (later on), and a spare tire carrier
    I'm mechanically inclined and have access to a garage full of tools including a welder, so I will do all labor I can. This will be my first build so any advice or information of any kind is helpful, thanks!

    Welcome Elliot! Keep an eye on that timing belt, she's about due, your 4.7 is an interference engine so make sure you get it done if it hasn't been taken care of yet. Can't wait for pictures from the desert!

    Nice truck, congrats. As FirstGenTundra said, check up on the timing belt, Toyota recommends replacing them at 90k.
