    First post. Howdy from hot, humid Mississippi. Many thanks to the kind folks posting to this forum providing pics, info, travails, and guidance. And your rigs look freakin awesome! Reading through your posts helped a LOT. I traded my 2011 2WD MGM extended cab for a 2018 4x4 MGM TSS Off Road crew cab with blackout package on 4/30/18 and took delivery 5/1. Added Katzkin leather seats (light grey) and Tufskin tailgate lettering within a couple of days. After multiple day-job business trips I finally got around to replacing halogen headlights and fog lights with LEDs from Toyota of Cool Springs on Memorial Day. They look sweet and the price was waaaay better than my local dealer. And @iHacker's harnesses worked flawlessly.

    Very grateful to those who took time to share your experiences here.

    I had Katzkins in a 2007 Cummins Ram and loved them.I can quite honestly say that the quality of the leather is every bit as nice or nicer than that found in the Tundra Limited.
