    Active duty Airmen stationed at Ellsworth AFB South Dakota. My first truck and I absolutely love it! Its a white 08 base model with chrome wheels and I just put on some Mossy Oak window deflectors. I know the Tundras have a history of stock radios going bad, and my volume knob is on the fritz. It works but if I turn the volume up to fast it actually lowers the volume. It can be quite a pain when I'm on the road or trail. I am considering just buying an after market one, but if anyone knows if its something I can fix on my own I'd really appreciate the help, thanks all.

    Welcome, and thank for your service. It also looks like your headlights have the BHLM, or am I seeing it wrong?

    Yes they do, along with smoked tail lights. I love how they look with the white paint job.

    Welcome. Thanks for your service. Why the mossy oak? Haven't heard of the radio problems. Was this only in the first couple years of the 2nd gen?

    I'm a big camo guy, I plan to add more of it. I'm going to add camo seat covers, a hood bug deflector, and possibly a wrap to go with them. As for the radio, yes I did some research and I read there's been problems with the volume knob going out completely out on the early 2nd gen's. So today I went out and bought a new JVC AR deck for it. I just finished installing it and it works and looks great. Its got a lot more juice than the stock radio and makes it sound like a completely new system. The dash kit I got for it also blends perfectly and has an extra storage compartment just below the deck, I love it!IMAG0144.jpg
