    figured it was time to throw up a build page!

    Here is my 2018 Limited Crewmax in cement the day she was bought!

    The mods started before I even had the truck. Big thanks to @Roman for all the goodies including color matched handles, black emblems and color matched mirror cover and front bumper ends. The windows were tinted within a week of ownership.

    Up next was new wheels and tires...couldn’t be rolling on stock TRD wheels! I went with nitto ridge grapplers in 275/70/18 on fuel octane wheels with a +20 offset. Also added a set of NFAB podium nerf bars.

    I ended up going with a lowrangeoffroad.com 3/1 lift/leveling kit. Before and after pics below.

    043F58BE-E147-472C-8A21-90B2208E5D6D.jpg

    Along the way I also swapped out all interior bulbs for precision LED bulbs. I added the left side grab handle and TRD shift knob, TRD dual exhaust and TRD rear sway bar, weathertech floor liners and a salex center console divider and tray.

    Here’s how she sits as of today.
    5060A8B5-D52A-476A-8431-124B34A1A828.jpg

    Future mods coming up in the next few weeks include:

    Remote start
    Complete stereo gut and replace
    Line X bedliner
    color matched honeycomb grille
    color matched hood bulge

    Once the last color matched parts arrive the chrome will be gone! It’s been amazing to see how fast the mods piled up because of all the amazing trucks and people on this forum! Big shout out to all of you for the ideas and inspiration to take a stock truck and make it my own!

    Added AVS in-channel vent visors today.....perfect fit no issues!

    A black hood bulge may look nice on there if you don't want to have one painted cement. Maybe bed liner or plastidip to match the flat black bumper center piece

    The bulge is offered in cement...and I had a "honeycomb" grille on order with Roman before the "no custom painted parts" went into effect....so I'm good to go there...Think I ordered the bulge and grille back in late September. Supposed to be at the dealership Dec. 8th....hopefully it will be painted and shipped to me quickly....last 2 pieces of the exterior and I'm chrome free.....other than the TRD exhaust tips....

    Good! I love the cement color. If I could afford to have whatever I wanted done to one, it would start from a cement Pro

    Yeah, I have to say that I was on a different Tundra forum for a year before I found this one. I wish I would have found Tundras.com first.

    So the stereo has been gutted and replaced with a bevy of goodies including a Kenwood DNX994, Hertz Mille front stage speakers, 2 Hertz amplifiers and a pair of Rockford Fosgate P3 shallow mount subs. Truck is crisp and pounds! Enclosure is sealed at 1.5 cubic feet. Also added a compustar remote starter with 3x lock activation off the factory keyfob

    Yep matte black....no so sure I’m in love with it....probably give it a couple days and if I don’t like it will probably switch to the kit with the silver trim

    Hey man what kind of $ did the audio system run you? Looks like a really clean setup and no loss of usable space in the cabin.

    Nice build!

    I believe everything came to around $4500.....which sounds like a lot but it was worth every penny.....truck sounds amazing and I'm loving the remote start with the factory fob with the cold temperatures here.

    The 3x lock is by pushing the lock button 3 times on the factory fob the truck starts. I don't believe anyone else has that at the moment....most remote starts for 18's require an extra fob at the moment. Compustar remote starts are great. I've had 3 of them now and never had an issue.

    Your truck looks great!!

    I’m with you...by far the best money spent was the stereo upgrade. I haven’t swapped the HU yet, but that purchase will put me at about where you’re at $ wise, and I don’t regret a penny of it
