    Hello!
    I just bought my 2017 Tundra and it's my first ever truck. It's black with brown interior 1794 edition. Need advice on some new additions;
    1. bedline cover; tri-fold or retractable?
    2. Bug deflector?
    3. Any other recommendations?
    4. When should I do my first oil change?

    A really appreciate your feedback.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I'd go with tri-fold so u don't lose cargo space but retractable is cool. There's even an electronic one that u can control with remote.

    First Oil change I'd do at 5k.

    Differentials change after 1k miles. You will see the natural shavings on the magnetic drain cap!

    If u don't plan to off-road install the rear sway bar for smoother ride.

    Nice truck!

    Welcome from CO!

    Tri Fold tonneau is my fav. Sits on top, looks tough, and holds water out pretty well. They are also a little cheaper on the wallet

    Definitely some sort of bed liner. If you aren't hauling stuff in the back the Bed Rug is nice. If you plan on beating it up and doing some roughing it out of it a spray in liner if it's not already on there

    I'm not a fan of the bug deflector but i'm kind of anal about appearance. I'm sure i would feel differently if we had any bugs...but we dont

    5000 oil change - synthetic only - keep up with that and that Tundra will last longer than you will

    A lot of guys change out tires and rims but those rims look good on your truck in my opinion. If you're not planning on those things then save your $

    Tint the front windows

    Color match your door handles and any chrome you aren't partial to. Just the few things i mentioned will make it an entirely new vehicle (not that it needs to be) and there are so many other options to choose from.

    You'll get a ton of opinions on this forum. Pick through them, even look at the build threads on the main page of the menu and get ideas. there is a ton to do that will make performance/looks/sexiness increase. It's all preference driven! What i do to mine would be silly for you, and vice versa

    A little of this and a little of that.
    Matt, welcome to the forum from Las Vegas!!

    1. bedline cover; tri-fold or retractable? I'd go with the BAKflip X2, it's a roll up made out of aluminum and the best cover out there!!
    2. Bug deflector? No, they look stupid, IMO.
    3. Any other recommendations? Lift with wheels and tires are a must, although I don't have them yet.
    4. When should I do my first oil change? 5K miles is how often I change mine.

    Look around the forum, it'll become an addiction.:thumbsup:
