    Hello, guys.

    Just moving over to a new job which will allow me to finally afford a new truck. The 2015 Tundra TRD PRO has my attention and I've arrived here looking for photos and eye candy for the 2015 Tundra TRD PRO in White.

    Looking at these BSpoke side steps. I understand they are good because they don't wire into the factory wiring system, which sounds good to me. I also like the better tires members are putting on them. My plan is to put a TruckVault into the bed and maybe a canoe or kayak wrack system above that for my future life in the northwest around Seattle and Anchorage, Alaska.

    Future plans may be a better stereo system, with Focal speakers, but that will take months of research. I'm an Apple user and wouldn't mind either an Apple Car system by Alpine or maybe just an iPad in the dash with some kind of remote amplifier/tuner. Any suggestions? I don't like cheap.

    Any info is welcome.

    My only concern is the low gas mileage of the Tundra at 15 MPG (13 city, 17 hwy). That might hurt a bit, at times, but worth it I think.

    Hope to hear some good things. Hope to hear all the bad if there is any. Any body rust problems on these 2015 Tundras?

    Thanks guys,

    BP

    No supercharger here. Just a heavy foot sometimes. :anonymous:

    The more you add, the less mpg's you will get.

    Welcome to the forum.

    It's possible to get 18+ mpg with these trucks (right foot mod). My highway (rural road) mpg used to be 18.5. So I thought that mpg was too good for such a beast, so lifted it and got heavy a$$ tires. My mpg went down rather quickly.
