    Hey everyone, wanted to introduce myself and start a build thread Got my 2017 Tundra SR5 Crewmax in October 2016. Immediately put a 3" spacer/1.75" block level on it and some some method wheels with 295/70/18's. Here she is the day that I brought her back from the store (I had the dealership put the lift and tires on since my brother manages a discount tire and my dad is the GSM of a Toyota dealership).

    Eventually I added a Smittybuilt Overland Tent with a custom rack that my dad and I built to accommodate opening the tonneau cover. Ended up getting orders 3000 miles away and made the drive pulling 7000 lbs.

    The truck was on the back-burner the past few years with work and other activities, but I always hated the ride off-road every weekend with the spacer lift. Only mods I did over the past few years was shortening the tent rack, debadging, and adding some ditch lights just the other day.

    I recently decided I wanted to make a change to the suspension with 1) the purchase of a GFC and 2) the goal of getting the Tundra to 300K as our camping vehicle. Here is how she sits today without any other mods:

    Added some SDHQ battery terminals today to replace the stock terminals that weren't looking so hot. Next in this area is a new battery at some point.

    Got the front done last night! Drivers side took about 5.5 hours because we moved pretty slow figuring things out. Passenger only took 2.5 and the hardest part was getting the UCA through bolt in and out. Stoked its all in and alignment coming Monday.
