    Hey Everyone,

    Newbie in Great Falls, MT. Just picked up a "new to me" 2008 Tundra DC 4x4 5.7l V8 in blue with 104k miles on it. This truck is IMMACULATE and was taken care of very well, looks damn near new. Has current production year TRD wheel and tire takeoffs on it and a Husky tool box in the bed. I had a Flowmaster 40 put on it with a sidepipe. Did oil change and dealer is going to do a drain and fill of the trans soon. Also installed a brake controller so I'm GTG whenever I am called upon to tow something with brakes. Don't have a trailer yet but had the controller laying around from a past vehicle and plan to have a trailer in the future. Lastly stubby antenna for the radio, cause the tall one just looked like crap.

    Next steps are swap the diff and t-case fluids, adjust the parking brake, Bilstien 5100's all around with middle perch on the front for "level", Access Toolbox Edition bed cover, 1" BORA wheel spacers and 275/70/r18 Falken Wildpeak A/T3w's before winter hits. Also plan on doing EBC yellow pads/Stoptech cryo slotted rotors at some point and WAY down the road FOX suspension.

    Interior wise, going to be installing heated seats, Carplay head unit, sub, new speakers, strip the interior and install sound deadening, auto traction control kill switch trigger on startup, backup camera, Front LED bar, rear bumper LED pods for backup/scene light and eventually on-board air and power inverter.

    Will be starting a build thread soon to track the progress. Have wanted a truck for years and this is going to be a blast!

    Thanks, just took a look at your build thread and wow, just like I planned to write as well haha, planned mods and all. Figured I’m keeping this thing till it blows up so may as well be happy driving the thing and modding how I want!

    Yeah I’m kinda weird like that lol. And unless I can find a good price on a used CM once this ones paid off, I’ll likely keep it until it falls apart. Or I may just buy a CM and keep this one anyway :thumbsup:
