    Interesting thanks for the info. I was going to try to do it myself, but then found one on Amazon.com

    This is the one I got: http://a.co/a9bbVKo

    Fits great no issues at all, just as good as stock IMO. I saw the one review someone left on Amazon about it sticking out abit at the bottom. But that was not the case with me.

    Some side shots:

    Surprisingly, no. It’s a bone stock 2013 limited. I’ll snap a pic of the two tomorrow if the rain stops. The 07 was the old project.

    Nice V-8 4th Gen! Are those the factory 17" sport wheels? One of my favorites. The whole rig looked sick murdered out. :cheers:

    Thank you. Those are the factory 17” sport wheels. Loved them. Hate chrome!

    Auxbeam 20w Philips leds with their amber covers. They’re a spot pattern but the amber covers only fit on these 4 Philips led pods, not the 6 cree led flood pod. Plus they are smaller and fit better in the factory locations.

    I have a question or two for you, if you don’t mind. Are you on 5100’s or spacers to fit the 75’s on the 04? How much trimming and did you cut the cab mount to fit at full lock? Lastly, did you regear?

    The 285/75-16’s almost never rub and if they do it’s only when I hit a dip going in reverse, even then it only touches the mud flap.

    I have 5100’s all around, front is set on the second highest notch and I have a 1 inch block in the back, so a 2/1 lift. Wheels are 16x8.5 with a -6 offset.

    Copy. My bad, thought I read you had 17’s and 285/75r17’s.

    All good, I’ve had 70’s on 17’s, 70’s on 18’s, 60’s on 20’s and now 75’s on 16’s, 16’s are the best riding ones especially with the 5100 being on the firm side, maybe I’m just getting old lol.

    Same here. Extra sidewall on the 16’s provide more of a “cushion”. I loved the 285/75r17’s on my runner and plan to run them on the tundra. I’m afraid that since the 75’s will fit relatively well, I might go 35’s and tub the firewall. But then that opens up a whole new stage of this build... :spending:

    All depends on how much power is lost with the 285/75’s.

    Had a few cans taking up space and some spare time. Also wiped down the tundra and 4runner, I hate pollen season!

    I did the same on mine with a black tip. Sad how the stock cat has that horrible choke point. I just need to upgrade the inhaler to match the exhaler. Thinking K&N or build my own kit.

    No time to write one up. The instructions from Crutchfield are great for wiring. Not so good on the install itself.
