    I use to catch about the same from my S/C Silverado SS. In my TBSS N/A I pulled less. Not all engines pull the same either. In the grand scheme of things it will take like 45-50k to fill up that bottle. I have also heard the crankcase can never catches anything. Also most people sell their vehicles with low mileage or average mileage to even know if the catch can was worth it. To each his own I guess.

    I have not seen these items ... do they make a horsepower difference?

    Maybe a little. Not enough for me to notice. The accelerator was inexpensive and comes on the TRD pro, so I said “eh, why not?” The filter is supposed to add a little bit, but I did it mostly for ease of maintenance and lifetime application.

    Check the build link in my signature.
    Clarification - it does not come on the TRD Pro.
    It comes as part of the TRD CAI kit.
    But it is inexpensive and easy to install.

    My bad. I knew it was part of that kit, I mis-wrote what I was trying to say.

    I just installed the Toyota brand bed extender brackets on each side and put back on the original tie down anchors. I then put in an AMP bed extender, which is bigger overall than the Toyota one I believe. I’m curious if you know how your anchors sit over a bed extender bracket, and if it impedes operation of an AMP bed extender? They look great, and I need something tougher. Hoping they work well together. Thnx!

    Total Chaos bed stiffeners, ~$180, if you haul a lot of weight, especially things like gravel, mulch, or anything else that would put pressure against the inside of the bedsides, it’s cheap insurance.

    Did some research and saw that the Tundras have issues with the bed sides flexing if you haul a lot of weight in the bed, I do on occasion, but also plan on running weight on my DB HD cover with the possibility of a RTT down the road.

    so I figured having the bed stiffeners sure wouldn’t hurt, and would provide that extra rigidity and strength, plus they add some useful tie down points that are integrated in the product.

    Too many, but not enough....
    My personal favorites are driver side grab handle, rear away bar, tailgate sealing stripping, paracord wrapped grab handles, carista, husky liners, toyota bed mat, fire extinguisher and mount,, rear seat pet cover, gloss black honeycomb grille overlay, wheel locks, bed stiffeners and of course, rear differential breather relocation.

    Would've agreed with you if I didn't have to replace mine twice. Just another option is why I suggested it. Obviously, YMMV.

    I understand and that was a great thread and write up. I've had mine two years and I'm in the truck alone 90% if the time. So far, so good. :fingerscrossed:

    Whew I would catch that much or more within 800 miles in my 2018 and 2019 Silverado 5.3s.

    I bought a 2018 Limited CrewMax over Labor Day.

    The things I did first:
    • Tundra OEM Bed Mat - $86
    • OEM Door Sill Protectors - Black - $33
    • RedRock 4x4 3-inch step bars - stainless steel - $85 (I figured if they were garbage, I was only out 85 bucks, but the kit was surprisingly good)
    • Truxedo Truxport roll-up tonneau cover - $150 on Craigslist
    • OEM Bed Extender - $120 local
    • Adhesive tailgate lettering - $15
    • Console organizer, half - $17
    I'll probably upgrade the step bars and the tonneau cover at some point, but these were good enough to get me going without breaking the bank.

    Is your Half organizer one that works with the console safe? If not, anyone else have any thing that would fit with the safe?

    I installed when I received my Tundra. Use it all the time when washing the beast and much better grab when entering than the steering wheel.
    Piece of cake to install and as solid as the passenger side.
    Money well spent.
