    What is this contest about?

    Show us the most unique modification you've done to your Tundra!


    What is considered unique?

    Something that is not common, and is not on our list of possible mods to do, or our DIY thread.

    This is a bit of an exaggeration, but here is an idea of something unique

    What are the rules?

    - Must be actual photo of a mod you have done, or have had done on your truck and will need to come up with proof of some sort to keep everyone honest.

    - Staff are not able to participate (Sorry guys!)

    So, let's say I have something unique, and win. What are the prizes?
    At this point @ToyTec Lifts was kind enough to donate a $50 gift card towards their site! (Toyteclifts.com)

    Great idea. My son just said that I should go watch the new Mad Max movie to get some ideas. (That Tundra Fishing Team truck would make a real good prize, at least some official flies.) :cookiemonster:

    How will the winner be determined? A panel of judges. a vote? It will be interesting to see the mods.

    Hit with problems right now in the background. No mods for me on my build page (Hiatus).

    @Sean266 i can be a judge if you need a step in one.

    Remember - the photos I posted are an over exgarration of what it should be.
    Many of us have done some pretty custom stereo stuff, interior work, custom weld jobs on bumpers and such, decals, paint jobs, or done something else that not many have.
    Who knows- you may end up being the winner!

    That's good. I wasn't really up to doing a Mad Max mod anyways. There are some really good mods here. Won't be easy. How about honorable mention atta-boys for the best stereo stuff,interiors, welds, paint , etc that don't take the big one?

    Ok so I got the unique mod to the truck, but can it be a mod that was done and put on the truck. Did everyone get that, ha ha. It's something I did that I consider a mod, but nothing mechanical, electrical, or interior, but involved welding. All opinions are welcome

    Speaking of potential entry mods, are the Thorleys going on this weekend? You've been pretty inventive so far. Curious to see what you may come up with.

    If you have more than one unique one, post it up and maybe we can vote which one of the xx mods said user posts is most unique and go with that for final voting? Thoughts?

    The headers, mid pipes... and a last minute add on, Auburn Pro are being done next week Monday and Tuesday. I'm going tomorrow to have it dyno tested, so I can see if the AFE CAI intake and throttle body spacer are doing anything. More so too to get before and after numbers once the headers get installed. Then I'll dyno again maybe the end of next week. I'll probably install the sliders mid next week. Want to have the other work done first. Sliders ended up only costing $90.72 to powder coat the pair. I had spent a little over $86 at home depot on acetone, primer and paint, to do it myself. Really happy I changed my mind!! I wouldn't consider this stuff original mods though. I have 2 other ideas, one already in the works and once head scratching idea... we'll see if I can pull it off.

    That's good to hear. Really curious how the Auburn Pro install goes for you. That's going to be my first real serious mod. Hopefully in the next month or so. Definitely before hunting season. Good luck with the head scratching ideas.

    Wouldn't something from here count as a unique mod? I believe a few of our members from this forum has purchased products from @havasubud

    Just an idea =)

    Ok I will start out with a unique mod as an idea of what we are looking for (however if I can win I wouldn't argue)

    Sub Amp fuse placed in the engine fuse box to keep it safe and for a clean stock look
    [​IMG]

    You can barely see the red power cable going into the fuse box. Nothing else.

    Ok, I know I not making the top 10, but here's mine. I layed out some aluminum diamond plate 4'x4"x1/4", with a 3" radius. I cut 5 pieces of anodized aluminium pipe 2" x12" , with a 45* angle. Welded each pipe to diamond plate using Gtaw process. I love to Tig aluminum, it's what is on pretty much every offshore boat. Ok back to mod. Once pipe was completed, I installed it to my toolbox using all stainless steel hardware. I know this is not gonna spin anyone's head, but for the fishermen it does the job. As you can see it keeps my gear up off the bed and at a 45* low profile so there not hitting any tree limbs or lines. I also went with some marine grade hose on the tips for damage control or chaffing gear so my reels don't get scared and scratched. I like this vs the traditional rod racks that areuploadfromtaptalk1433726817906.jpguploadfromtaptalk1433726832998.jpg mounted up in front of vehicle and are subject to rocks and whatever else flies up.

    I actually love this mod! I thought I saw this in a partial pic awhile back, but your poles weren't in place... made me wonder then. Thanks for the clarification and great job. Now you just got to add some float tubes, and add on impeller and we can fish from the truck bed!!!
