    That looks cool. Did you get that online or somewhere local? If online, do you mind posting the URL that you ordered from?

    Same vibe but with older grill--installed this weekend. Added NSV light bar as well (awesome addition). I have bumper shelz to install still. Where did you get the center bumper cover?

    New to the forum and this is my first post. Picked up a 2014 Tundra 1794 Edition about a month ago.

    Wasted no time and installed a lift, wheels, and tires within the first few weeks. Also blacked out badges, door handles and painted my mirror caps.

    I did the lift myself and installed Toytec2.5 alumas up front and Toytec shackles set at 1.5" in the rear. Wheels are Fuel Vectors and tires are Toyo AT III285/75/18. Rides great.

    Also picked up a dirty deeds exhaust system. Really like it.

    Took a lot of inspiration from the forums and look forward to being part of the group now. Here is a before and after photo...hope I do this right

    Looks great. Is there a plan for the front end?

    Bad ass I was trying to avoid the BMC but may do when these tires wear out. I guess the next question is how high did you lift the front. Friend of mine has 37s on his gladiator and it is a lot of tire. You like the way it handles compared to 35s?
    I have 33 with a 2" lift up front, my off set is 0 but I believe if in had the BMC I could use my stick rims if i wanted.

    The front is just under 3" of lift, the rear has toytec shackles at the highest setting, about 1.5". I had a mild BMC, had to cut a little more and hammer the plate back. Just need to weld it back up. The pinch weld had to get trimmed as well.
    I have only driven half a tank so far. I do notice I am up a little higher, but so far it feels about the same as the 34s I had prior.

    Update now that I’ve got a cap on the back. Bought this ARE MX series for $400 and had it painted for $700. Love this color more and more. It’s nice to have vehicle that is different than everyone else. All I see is black, gray, white and red these days

    You're absolutely right. When I went looking for my TUNDRA I didn't even know that mica bronze was a color. It was the first one the salesmen took me to. I looked at the color and just loved it as stupid as that sounds. Then he keep pushing men to buy a white one, I already had a white pickup and by then hated the color for personal use. Just reminded me of a work/ company truck. Then all I saw were the grey ones, sucks.

    Still is the only color that I know which completely changes depending on how the sun hits it.

    Yes, I installed 5.29s in February or 2020. Ran for a year on the 34s before the 37s went on

    Hi, guys!

    I love the my Bronze Mica Tundra as well. I got the 2017 SR5 Double CAB. Got it in 2017 and now it only has 30K miles. My wife hated the color when I showed it to her at the dealership. The more the merrier, which means her won’t ask to drive it. :amen:;)

    I need a new tailgate but the bronze mica color is not easy to shoot. Got dinged pretty good from neighbors. Any suggestions?

    Makes me miss the cap I had on my last tundra. I guess I should start looking for one.

    @MgmSR5, might I ask who painted your cap? It seems your very happy with the job they did.

    I had to replace passenger side bed. I don't know if the body shop bought it or sprayed it, can't tell it was replaced. How bad is the tailgate? Worth replacing or not?

    The overall tailgate is not terrible. One big ding and a few minor dings but in overall good condition.
