    <--- This guy!

    I'm in Tooele, but work in SLC. Whereabouts are you? Do you have a build thread or pictures of your truck?

    I think there is a guy with a white TRD Pro in St. George too..

    Broomfield (depending where) is around 20 mins from me and actually really close to @csuviper
    When are you here next? Maybe the 3 of us can grab a beer.

    I'm not sure exactly, but usually know a few weeks in advance. I'll definitely send you guys a message next time I'm headed that way.

    I'm glad I started this. It always eats away my insides when I see all these Tundras driving around and wondering if they are on the forum. haha

    I'm in Salt Lake, lived here through my teens and recently just returned from Boston. Hopefully I'll get a build thread started soon, I just found my footing with a new job and a roof over my head. Building up the truck is next!

    If this thread gets enough traction and users we'll have to get a meet together of some sort!

    I am hearing Utah and Colorado here, so I might as well join in. I am here in Utah (SLC area). My wife is from Broomfield, CO so I think I might fit right in on this thread:) Anyway, I have owned my 2007 DC TRD Off Road since new. I had at one time installed a leveling kit, but got tired of the uneven tire wear and removed it. Well, since I did that I still notice the uneven tire wear (outside edges wear prematurely), so I am wondering if I head down that rabbit hole again since I love the look of a lifted Tundra. I just sold my 2nd gen Tacoma which was my "toy" and all the attention went to it as far as modifications. I only have about 67K original miles on the Tundra so it obviously has a lot of life in it. The stock bilsteins are looking pretty sad (mostly surface rust from our salty roads), so I am strongly considering a suspension upgrade. I have been thinking bilstein 6112s set at 1.3" and 5160s in the rear. I don't really want to go huge lift and have to worry about new UCAs and such.

    It's nice to see there a few of us here - I was starting to think Colorado was the only state represented here. ;)

    I have a set of the TRD Bilsteins and coils off my 2016 CM and they include a 2" spacer kit and a differential drop kit. If you don't go with a coilover lift or something I'd be very willing to negotiate a really reasonable price with you. They came off with around 3800 miles on them. Let me know if you're interested.

    Lots of Colorado love from their western friends.

    That would give you a hell of a spring rate! haha This would be a cool setup to see. 2" spacer lift would definitely not warrant the use of new UCAs either. If they are the 6024's (HD I believe) it'd be a nice upgrade over OEM.

    :rofl:

    I figured as much considering the spring length/width. You'd might as use a cement block!

    Are those just the Toytec spacers? Looks like a barely used pair of HD's to me. What did you replace them with?

    No, they are Rough Country spacers. I had Toytec installed when I ran it, but gave them to a friend when I uninstalled these and installed these ones while I had the springs compressed. I thought they would be more attractive to a potential buyer, but they've just been sitting in my garage forever.

    I also have a brand new differential drop kit that has never been installed.

    Depends on if you have a commercial license. If you do the work is VERY available. I used to make $28hr doing commercial deliveries for a local industrial company to worksites. CDL will get you by. CDL+P/N/T will get you a happy salary. Anything more and you'll be VERY comfortable (or at least what i've seen from co-workers with those endorsements).

    If you are looking for just standard delivery, there is definitely a market for it. Part runners, delivery for hire, courtesy.... But it doesn't pay as handsomely.

    Nice! Utah county is a nice suburb area. Pretty competitive housing and apartment pricing if you aren't trying to live in the canyon! I don't know much about Amazon or staples deliveries but let us know if you make the move!

    On a side note, I got up to the Ashley National Forest before it completely got covered in the white crap people call snow! Super pretty, gonna miss it for the next six months.

    Nice man. Spanish isn't a bad place. Not far from downtown either. Yeah, FedEx is expanding like crazy. Should be a solid gig!
