    As of 8/29/20



    As of 5/29/20





    10/27/19


    ... 5/17/17



    ... 6/15/16

    So I've owned my Tundra alittle over 3 months now so I thought I'd post a build thread ...

    First pics


    First mod, spray in Full Metal Jacket bed liner. made dirty by my feet
    Then installed my Under Cover Flex, AMP research bed step and NFab two step bars
    Added a Thule bike rack to make use of my tow package ... LOL
    Here in California we're not suppose to tint our forward side windows but I've found as long as you don't over do it you should be ok ...

    50% tint with AVS window visors
    Might have noticed my badges were either removed or changed over to black and added the tailgate insert
    Swapped out my grill and added the 4x4 badge
    Installed the ESP underseat storage unit

    Did the driver side handle mod and wrapped them all
    Then just recently received these. Awaiting my back up reverse LED's and PIAA headlight bulbs to arrive


    That's it for now. Next up dual exhaust.

    I'm loving it. Those lights are going to look real sharp!

    Had to pull into my garage to see the strips lit up

    Okay, so I decided to get my switchbacks in tonight. They are little brighter than I expected and overpower the Led strips abit.


    And while in there I found out that the Spyders don't ship to you with side marker bulbs. California law says you must have some sort of amber light in the front of your vehicle. Lucky for me I had a set of amber Led bulbs available to install.

    Steve, trust me ... you wouldn't regret it. Easily one of my favorite mods that right away gives you the "I feel different from most Tundras". Alot like changing out your wheels.

    Hey Mark,

    How's it going? I think I made my introduction to some of our locals on the NorCal thread. I believe two of you made a trip up north somewhere off of Hwy 50. I wanted to try and make it but work got in the way. (if it's not work, it's the wife or kids). Anyways thanks for the compliments and hope to meet you and the other Bay Area guys someday.

    -Dave

    Got the exhaust in ... looks great and sounds nice! Throttle feels lighter ... doubt there's any real gain. Time will tell.

    Okay, it's been a good week ...


    Spidertrax 1.25" spacers arrived today. Hope to have them on by the weekend.

    Remaining LED's should be here tomorrow ... Then the Mod slowdown begins.

    Looking good. I like the under the seat storage. Looks like it locks. How secure is it.

    Steve,

    I got my reverse leds from Headlight revolution
    The photos don't do them justice as they are very bright. They are the level 2 models. I can't speak about the vled reverse leds but can tell you that my switchbacks from them are incredible and also very bright.

    It does lock and seems pretty secure. The unit itself is bolted down via the rear seat bolts.

    Thanks everyone! Unfortunately the mod slowdown begins now. Having only put on around 6,650 miles on my Tundra TRD 4x4 I just can't see myself upgrading the suspension until my current Bilstein shocks are worn down. Wheels and tires kind of falls into the same situation, kind of I say .... perhaps if I find some 20" wheels that I just can't resist. We'll see ...

    Try not to grow up if you can, live life to the fullest! Because if you grow up like me, you'll just be old. Look forward to watching your build come to life! I maybe on a slowdown (wife still doesn't believe me) but I'll still be watching for ideas. Those fender flares still pop up in my mind ... Lol.
