    1) My truck is said to have a "towing package. What special parts does that get me?

    2) The truck feels geared up. It's got to be 3.70-4.10 range. How do I find the gear ratio without jacking the truck up and counting revolutions, or anything too involved. Is there a code on a sticker somewhere, or such?

    3) Does anyone have the Go-Rhino "step guard" on their Gen 1? I'd love to see a pic. The bull bars seem more popular, but they don't come up high enough for my personal taste. I like the idea of the push bar, or some call it grille guard, with the built in step.

    4) The lowest chrome grille slat, on the top of the front bumper cover.... Is it just double sided taped on, or will it leave holes if I was to permanently remove it. It just seems to have no use but decoration. Not my taste.

    5) Does Toyota wire all their trucks the same, regardless of some of the simple options? Example, GM and Ford both wire their vehicles for fog lights, no matter if the vehicle has them or not. Does Toyota? If so, I just need lights and a switch, like on the other brands. Easy cheesy. (It's cheaper to run the wires in all cars, than to have different harnesses for every option.)

    6) Anyone run an MSD box on their 4.7? How hard is it to hook to the Toyota? I have a relatively new box on the truck this Tundra is replacing. It would be nice if I could move the MSD to the new (to me) Tundra.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting some questions, but it's getting late. I'll have to settle for these right now. I'm excited to get some answers, recommendations, and ideas. Pics never hurt either!
