    Been gone for a while, as my wife's small business has been exploding, and since retiring, I now work for her.:cool:

    So ... I had this 2018:

    18.jpg

    The other day, my wife was like, "Look at this pic of this cool Tundra on the lot," [from where my son works].

    I was like, :amen: and :monocle:.

    Then, this '21 Limited Crewmax happened:

    21.jpg

    Much of this is @chphilo's fault, as I always liked his truck.

    Now, I have to make a decision [cuz I am building a huge covered deck on my house and remodeling the entire basement, paying as I go, which restricts my funds right now].

    The predator steps will be here Wednesday. [Also, ordered black TUNDRA letters for the tailgate, a MUST HAVE little thing IMO.]

    I can either spend money like this [OPTION ONE]: Bilstein 5100s and Falken Wildpeaks [LT285/75/18], and bug deflector [another little, MUST HAVE for me].

    Or OPTION TWO, I could Line-X my bed [tragically, the truck came without it, sigh] and buy a high-quality, retractable tonneau cover and a few other smaller odds and ends. [I might just go with a bed mat to save money for a while. This is a horrible idea, right?--cuz it will make my bed rust badly? I don't know, I've never had a bed mat before. Anyone know?]

    Or OPTION THREE, get a DECKED system and a tonneau.

    Whatta' ya' all think?

    A few final thoughts:

    • I think I'm keeping the stock exhaust and rims on this one too.
    • I've gone from 6-inch lifts to leveled in the past several years; now, my wife says, "I like the rake better because I can see out more easily." [She's five foot tall; I am much taller and leveled improves my view, I think.] I don't think I can live with the rake long-term, but maybe, I'm growing as a person?
    • Gotta' get window tint at some point.
    Just pondering ...

    Beautiful truck! I vote option one but to me a spray on bedliner is a must especially since yours is brand new so I'm conflicted also

    I could do option one AND Line-X my bed, actually ... I bet option one gets 90% of the votes.:D

    The wildpeaks should be purchase number one regardless of the other options to bundle with your budget.

    Congrats on joining the SSM crew! From your options, I’d say if you use your bed often ... go with #2 first. Put some miles on the Bilstein 4600s and stock tires since you already paid for those.

    Bedliner is being put on 12/28: so, I agree, it is a practical necessity.

    Plus, I'm getting a Gator tri-fold tonneau.

    Putting on a chrome bug deflector.

    Bilstein 5100s are on eternal backorder right now, so ... whatever ... I'm just going to drive it like this for a while.

    Those will be one Wednesday: and absolutely agreed. Black TUNDRA on the tailgate really pops; it's a MUST HAVE for me, even if it's a little thing.

    And window tint up front: that really needs to happen.

    Niiiiice.:thumbsup:

    The front tint makes the truck look better, no doubt.

    I'm getting a chrome bug deflector, btw.

    I love chrome with Silver Sky Mettalic.

    Of all the Tundra colors, Toyota should have made the black inserts standard on the SSM's.

    Yeah, they look good also, I think: I like a little BLACK mixed in, but predominantly CHROME [shock, horror, gasp, "How could you, you beast?"] on the Silver Sky's. I think they look good blacked out too.

    Yeah, funniest thing in the world [and sometimes, annoying too:rolleyes:] is to watch people argue about preferences.

    Preferences are like personalities--by and large, they're not good or bad--they're just different.:cheers:

    Got my wheels and tires installed today. Looks strikingly similar to @Piki 's truck, although he has some extra gear installed.
    He must be a very smart and talented individual! I have some custom bed decals coming to set it apart.
    PS, why is this not a sticky thread like the other colors?
