    Finally getting around to a build page. I'm going to try to list these as chronologically as possible. Here's the starting point...I installed the running boards and shorty antenna the day I bought it, and had the windows tinted:


    LineX, bed tie-downs, and driver's side grab handle:


    Magnet for pistol in center console:


    I made a custom plate to mount a camera in the Limited grille:


    And then the FRAC:


    ABS guards and rear differential mod:


    2.5" Pro Comp front spacer, SDHQ shackles, removed front wheel well air dams, and trimmed OEM skid "plate" for future fit of 275/65R20's:


    Hellwig rear sway bar:


    DIY wireless chargers:


    Mods on the factory CAI:


    Shift knob and AJT center console trim:


    Audio, lighting, and miscellaneous electronics...Phoenix Android Radio with accessory USB port mounted in center console (came with video inputs, so sold the FRAC harness), Rago dash mount with tablets running Waze and Torque Pro, 10" subs and box with JBL 1,000-watt dedicated sub amp, rock lights, LED bar under the hood and in rear bed, LED backup lights, positive battery terminal accessory mount, rear window switch relocation with three-switch blank and LED switches and replaced factory window switch location with sub amp control knob, auto up/down control box for rear window:


    No pics on truck, but links to factory charging tray, rear taillights, and Start-X remote start:

    https://www.sparksparts.com/p-tundra-wireless-charging-tray-0001634506
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B092LYKMPH?ie=UTF8&th=1
    Start-X Remote Starter For Toyota Tundra 2018-2021 || Plug N Play || Lock 3 Times to Remote Start || ZERO WIRE SPLICING! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P1NDL1W

    Color matched mirror caps and door handles, LED panel below headlights, black emblem overlays, PlastiDipped Limited OEM wheels, LineX'd chrome portion of running boards, painted Limited grille black and bulge and surround white, Super White Bumpershellz:


    Tufskinz foam inserts:

    More bed stuff...tailgate ladder for my fat old ass, bottle opener, SwingCases with homemade mounting brackets that double as bed stiffeners, Ozium red LED's to fill the threaded holes below the tailgate:


    Dual Magnaflows with dump:


    Rear under-seat storage:


    While offroading, bottomed out and chipped the LineX on my running board and dented the bottom rear corner of the cab, so on to some WKOR sliders:


    TRD Pro Super White surround and bulge, new front camera, Warn Evo 10S with SDHQ hidden mount and fairlead LED bar mount, SDHQ LED hood bulge and LED double behind-the-grille mounting brackets, Toyo OC AT2 275/65R20's, towing mirrors, RC front tow hook brackets, front door sill protectors for both the front and the rear, white vinyl in multiple areas, white Toyota steering wheel emblem overlay:


    Homemade mounts for under the front seats:


    TRD Pro suspension and Ekstrom Design TRD Pro lift (sold 2.5" spacers and SDHQ shackles), RAS (sold Hellwig sway bar):


    Homemade riser for factory jack to accommodate for lift:


    Various blackout overlays from Amazon (complete review of the overlays: https://www.tundras.com/threads/ama...hat-will-hopefully-help-your-decision.112030/), though I did wind up going with the AJT handles and steering wheel trim:

    Nice build. I am new to Toyotas can you tell me about a couple of your mods?

    Specifically, which wireless phone charger is that? There are many on Amazon and most don't have good ratings.
    What is the LED light bar/strip inside your hood? Also, could you post a pic from the inside?

    Thanks

    The wireless charger is the Southeast Toyota unit the Sparks Parts sells. I was an "early adopter" and bought from Sparks, before the cheaper ones on Amazon and eBay started popping up. If I had to do it over again, I would probably still order the one from Sparks. The LED light bar I mounted under the hood is just a cheapo Nilight single row 36" bar. You can see the red light switch in the lower right hand corner of the pic in my original post, next to the battery. Here is another angle:

    Thanks Tor, god of Tunder (as Raj Koothrappali from BBT would pronounce it :rofl:), I appreciate it as well!!

    Here you go sir, I've had them on for about three years now, work awesome, and are decently bright without being blinding to oncoming drivers. There has been some light condensation though inside the lens, but not enough to bug me, which is amazing considering my partial OCD :). I simply tapped into the parking light:

    Thank you Geno! Might not be as sturdy as actual bed stiffeners that extend about 3" higher, but better than nothing...

    So far so good. First time using a grease gun, so I started freaking out when it wouldn’t come off the zerk, didn’t realize there’s finesse and force involved:rofl:. They have excellent welds, and they definitely give you PLENTY more caster. I went from 1.8 to 3.7.

    Not much. The strap that secures it can be tightened, so you can get it pretty snug to where is hardly moves.

    Had to replace the JBA UCA's (too much negative camber causing inner tire wear) with SPC's. Bushwacker DRT flares, ARK splash guards, and black hood vinyl.

    The color white is my least favorite on the Tundras. But you did an amazing job transforming it. The black vinyl and the fender flares really make it look sporty (the black and white color theme). Did you painted the fender flares? Or they came like that?

    Thank you! Flares came with a primed, paintable matte black surface…didn’t touch ‘em. Loved the contrast. When I installed the flares, it looked “unbalanced” up top if that makes sense…too much white on the hood. Hence the vinyl to break it up.

    I totally see it. It brings the two colors together. What I also notice is the center grill you chose..a perfect color match to your color scheme. You have one of the best looking white tundras I seen.

    Here you go! Forgive the dirty :oops:
    I bolted mine on, drilling the extra holes required. Gotta have sharp, durable bits for sure. Note, they utilize the same mounting points as the Valhalla’s and Talon’s rear cat shields; Talon’s website says it has a bracket solution that accommodates.

    Bought a knock-off onboard twin compressor from Amazon to save about $200+, and a "budget" mount from eBay (it's actually a great mount; clean cuts and holes, and smooth, even powder coating). On the money I saved for both, sprung for a premade 4-way set-up from Thor's; could've probably pieced it together cheaper, but liked the fact that it came all assembled in its own storage bag. Solid construction with kink-free hoses. Put a "stop watch" to it...about 3:20 for air down from 37 PSI to 20 PSI, and 5:15 for air up from 20 PSI to 37 PSI. Not really sure how that compares to a legit ARB unit, but definitely good enough for me, especially since some of both times was taken up by me opening and closing the valve during deflation, or turning the compressor on and off during inflation, to check PSI. As I do it more often and get the "feel" for when I'm close to fully aired down or aired up, might be able to trim off a few seconds for both. Compressor didn't get too terribly hot...the manifold that came with the Thor's setup that's connected to the couplers and PSI gauge got pretty warm though. I'm going to keep an eye on the compressor and report back if any issues. I like it so far though...really nice to only have to run the + and - to the battery; since it has its own on/off switch on the top of the compressor, no need to attach the other wiring harness which would go to the provided remote switch. I elected not to get a standalone manifold, or a tank, as I am not running air lockers, air tools, train horns, etc.; got the ARB hose coupling quick disconnect instead. I hope this help someone looking for "budget" alternatives.
