    Hey everyone I just recently purchased a used Tundra. It's a 2008 but only 70,000 miles and I am wondering what suggestions everyone as far as upgrading the truck. Part of the purchase I was able to get brand new tires and wheels so we are good on that end.

    What is the main thing everyone likes to upgrade?

    - Bull Bar, - HID Bunny Burners - AMP retractable running boards, - Headlight leveling retrofit - P1 Brake Controller - 60% rear seat delete - relocation of Sub to rear wall. - 3/1 leveling kit - Firestone Air bags - on-board compressor with auto-leveling, - Dual Undercover Swing Boxes. - P285/65/R20 (34.6") BFG TA KO2's - TRD Front skid plate - Pop & Lock Tailgate lock (soon) - Remote Tailgate mod (soon) - LED Headlights (soon) - Nav Bypass - iPhone integration - Serius/XM retrofit
    Welcome.

    I can't speak for "everyone" but here as a list of common mods to get you started.

    - 3/1 leveling kit (gets rid of the nose-down rake and makes room for taller tires)
    - wheels and tires (depends on lift, if any)
    - Bunny burners (auxiliary lights that are so bright they turn little bunny-rabbits into wisps of smoke)
    - Running boards (Keeps the short wife unit happy if you have a lift and/or tall tires)
    - Bull Bars (a place to mount your bunny-burners)
    - TRD skid plate (provides a "hatch" for oil changes so you don't have to remove the factory skid-plate to change the oil)

    Once you get all that done, you can start spending some real money :)

    Welcome from FL! I'm with @Sean266...
    I'd start with some fun stuff. BAMuffler, tow mirrors if you do some towing, TRD sway bar...just a few ideas.

    Thanks yall! Clearly I am from Texas haha
    The dealership is giving me free tires and rims. They are saying I should go with American Truxx 155 or something like that. Any ideas on how they will be? Coming with an Alterain tire one them.
    I have the option of ordering different rims if I don't like them so speak freely haha
