    yep bank account is running low from it..
    Only time a manual was offered in tundra is when the v6 (tacoma powerplant) was in it. Very short lived.

    Edit I want to remember it was 2001 or 2002 only years u could get a manual v6 in the tundra without going back to the T100 days.

    They quickly became a favorite for me... Method Wheels is currently manufacturing center caps due to many people wanting them. They should be out at end of July. IMAG1167.jpgIMAG1042.jpg

    I think they look good as is. I hope when the center cap comes out they do something really nice and not some big chunk of plastic. Got any front and rear pics? Any plans to add flares or happy with how much they stick out?

    Center caps will remain the same with a small push in insert. No flares for me. Here are a few different angles...

    I think I may have found a great mod for less than $100. Pretty cool idea... what do you think?

    Uh.... That was tickle my pickle bad ass right there! When will you get the dyno with these? Did you keep one set of cats, both or get rid of them and use a simulator?

    Did I talk to you about the high pitch whine you got with your cai? If not, you can get rid of that by modding the throttle body gasket or ordering one that goes on a sequoia.

    I was going to do the follow-up dyno right after, but my intentions were to be able to get the Bully Dog GT also and have it tuned at same time. Unfortunately no BD yet for 2015 so I'm going to wait on that step. Mainly because the tech said he'd hook it up and set it for free. I do still have high pitch whines, but when I added cai, I added a throttle body spacer also and that came with a new gasket that was only the outer ring, like your mod. So not sure how to stop it. It just sucks a ton of air??? Any thoughts...

    Cats removed, but I still have cats, not sure if I should keep them for possible future emmisions testing, should they dare look underneath? Or sell them... Not sure of their worth along with old headers.... Boy are the stock headers small! The new mid pipes have resonators and o2 sensor tappings and I got some new sensors and plugs that I guess tell the ecm that all is hunky dory, lol. So no possible codes.

    If it were me id take two and have them placed in your current mid pipes so you are legal and don't need the sims. Then sell the other two and be done with it. Maybe at least keep all the stock exhaust just in case you need it one day...

    As far as the whine goes, it's probably the spacer since you don't have the whiffle gasket.

    Who ever designed that should be added to the Mission to Mars engineering team. Would fit right in at BallAerospace or JPL
    Pretty Nifty.
    It was nice that Toyota gave us a baby header. At least compared to the DT long tubes which are delightfully wicked.

    I'm doing black also. If the bronze was a bit more gold I might have gone that route.

    Sweet, you'll love them! What size, brand tires you going with? Where you buying them? I went to Discount and got them for $200 ea. I went with Cooper ST Max 295/70 18's. I'm probably going to get a spare setup also in the near future.

    I'm doing 295/70r18's as well. I ordered the G2's but kinda wish I did the Coppers after seeing more pics and reading the review's. I've had the tires and NV wheels on order for about 6 weeks. Found out the other day the NV's are another month out. I was never 100% stoked on the NV's because I'm not a fan of fake bead locks and center caps. I did however like the +25 offset. Always liked the Roost but was afraid the +18 might stick out more than I wanted. After seeing your setup I had to change my order. It's a plus that they happen to be in stock too.

    You won't be disappointed with the G2's. At least I haven't, yet.

    F I N A L L Y... got the @All-Pro Off Road rock sliders installed. I knew about having to drill a few holes, but didn't think I'd have to do any modification to the mounting bracket to get drivers side to fit. 2 brackets near gas tank were in the way.
