    Well, took delivery from the dealership this morning. Now I just need all the stuff I ordered to show up. :) Truck is a 2017 SR5 with TRD package, Silver Sky Metallic with 175 miles on it as she sits now.

    It will also be getting Line X and the front two windows tinted in the next week or so.

    Future plans include tow mirrors and I would like to mount some reverse lights in the rear bumper.

    Picture of how she sits in the driveway right now.

    Saaaweeet! Just to warn you, probably gonna be a few guys that will try to persuade you from your choice of lift. Not that a leveling kit wouldn't give you the stance, just not good if you plan to do any off-road activities. Good looking Tundra. Welcome from Obx

    Thanks...the extent of my off-road activities will be driving some pretty well maintained gravel logging roads while hunting/fishing. Dealer wanted to use Ready Lift, but I'm going to a different shop that will Instal the LRO kit. Buddy of mine had it on his Tundra and was happy with it, so hoping I don't regret it.

    Haha, thanks! I actually used your build thread to make sure I would like the look of everything. I originally wanted the XD Heist, but all the shops around here told me they are on backorder from their suppliers in the Tundra bolt pattern. So after a bunch of searching, I came across the NV's. Went with the Coopers to save a little money, and they look like a great tire, and I've had good luck with Coopers on other vehicles.

    Awesome! You're going to have to do a little trimming and cutting but it's going to look good when you're done. Congrats.

    Went out last night and took off the SR5 and Tundra badges. Took about 30-40 minutes total with my wife's hair dryer, 30lb fishing line, a microfiber towel, and some Goo Gone. Will probably end up blacking out the 5.7 badge.

    Welcome Brent and enjoy that CM. Is this your first CM Tundra ? You'll love all the interior space. Look forward to those mods you have listed.

    First Tundra at all. Had a 1996 Tacoma, then a 2004 Silverado, and then I just traded in a 2011 Silverado on this Tundra. Got the CM for all the extra space for the two car seats that go in the back. :)

    Love the RB20's! I've got many of these same mods set for the next couple of weekends. Can you take a picture from the side of your truck to show the ground clearance with those boards?

    Here are a couple pics I just posted in another thread. Trying to figure out how to get them adjusted to make the front of the step higher like it is in the rear. IMG_5346.jpgIMG_5345.jpg

    It really doesn't look like the front is lower than the back by looking at the boards as they compare to the lines on the truck

    After I posted, I went out and took measurements of each side at the points shown in my picture below. On one side the rear was 15.5" from the ground, and the front was 13.5" from the ground. The other side was 15.25" and 13.25" respectively. Truck still has the factory rake, so I'm thinking all may be good, and the 1/4" difference from one side to the other could be the ground I'm parked on. I'm wondering if part of it is due to the fact that the front of the RB20 is wider than the rear, making it look off at first glance...?

    Just installed the Speedo Calibrator. Took about 45 minutes going slow to make sure I didn't break any clips. Didn't really use the trim removal tools either.

    IMG_5441.jpg IMG_5443.jpg IMG_5445.jpg IMG_5440.jpg Got the rear lift done this morning before my wife needed to go to work.

    Also started dipping the 5.7 badges.
    *I used more tape/cardboard. This was just the only picture I took.

    Got the rest of the Low Range kit installed today in the 100 degree heat. It was getting hot in my shop!

    Front is:
    3" LRO spacer
    Diff drop

    Rear is:
    1-1.5" Toytec shackle set at 1"

    295/70/18 Cooper STT Pro
    18x9 Method NV

    Waiting for my new rear shocks to come. It's off to the alignment shop in the morning.

    What kind of rubbing issues do you have with that tire/wheel combo?
