    Been around here for a while as the saga to get this custom DCLB actually started in 2016.

    After much persistence this unicorn is parked in the driveway.

    I'm coming from a 1998 F150 Supercab 8' box so I love this configuration. Terrible for parking but awesome for everything else (hauling, towing, ride, etc.).

    I was considering the new Fords with a V8 but too many features without increased reliability. Also the supercab is terrible for passengers (much like my 1998) and the suicide doors on the supercab are a pain. Not a fan of the AL body either.

    What do I like about my new Tundra?
    -Excellent seating and access in the Double cab.
    -More capacity and way more HP with the same gas mileage I had in my 1998 F150 (381 HP vs 234 HP).
    -The radar cruise control is pretty cool.
    -The underseat rear storage.
    -Toyota reliability (hopefully not a future member of the cam tower leak club)
    -Real brakes! (my Ford was the last year they had rear drums from 1920, they suck)

    What I don't like:
    -Stock stereo sounds pretty bad.
    -Bed is too high.
    -DCLB is like pulling teeth to get.
    -The LED DRL and the Halogen lights look weird. LED's up soon.
    -Not a fan of the honeycomb grille.

    Mods coming:
    -LED headlights
    -1794 grille
    -Chrome mirror covers
    -Painted handles
    -Partial debadge (leave the iforce)
    -Rhino lining (held up great for 20 yrs in my Ford)

    Thanks man. These are the Factory Alloy wheel option for Gulf States Toyota ("Port-Installed Option", PIO). The ones that show up on the Toyota corporate website are more of a true 5 spoke rather than these "split 6-spoke". Honestly, the trucks look much better with 20's but the ride and mpg suffer a little as the stock alloys are very heavy.

    You can find these on ebay here and there. Not sure who makes them for GST though?
