    Hi everyone!

    Recently bought a used 2014 Silver Sky Crewmax after driving an Audi TDI gas sipper for a few years.

    Previous owner had color matched the grill surround and front/rear bumpers, along with adding some 305/55r20 Nitto Trail Grapplers on the stock rims. A Rough Country 4.5" kit was also installed, which will do for now, but will eventually be replaced by Bilsteins or some other adjustable shock up front.

    I installed AMP Powersteps just a few days after I bought it because I could barely get in the darn thing.

    Loving this truck and the online communities that provide tons of knowledge about everything imaginable.

    Thanks for having me!

    Thanks! Got the Audi mostly because I commuted 3 hours/day. I'd been looking at Tundras for the longest, and then my commute changed to less than 10 minutes, so I finally decided to pull the trigger.

    Thank you!

    Welcome aboard. You're gonna love those Powersteps! One thing to check with your 4.5" lift; If you have 4WD, make sure they put in the diff drop, else you'll experience excessive wear on the CV Joints and boots. 3" is about as high as you'd want to go on a spacer lift without dropping the diff.

    I'm in Lancaster, just south of Dallas. I'm seeing more DFW Tundra owners on here. Maybe we could all do a local meet n greet and check out each other's trucks and mods.
