    Even while not being a huge fan of Black vehicles :crapstorm:, all your (well done) mods are really making your truck unique and pretty fkn deadly. :thumbsup: Nice work on those Mamba

    I don't have to try. It's a scientific fact. It's also a theological fact. Both science and religion agree on this. Can't argue with that.

    I'll admit I haven't done the 'pull onto the lawn, hand wash and wax' a truck since college. I grew up with that being a thing, did it for a while on my first couple trucks, then completely stopped. Not sure I know anyone personally who still does it.

    But I'm considering starting. I think I'll need to follow shifty`s methods in the 'so you bought a first gen' thread first to get rid of the chalk that's apparently common on white Tundras, then take care of a couple dozen little rusted rock chips, then shoot for a once-a-year full wash & wax, in addition to the pay car wash as needed.

    Looks great!

    Well, yeah, but we bald guys are have notoriously high T levels, so it's hard to think about anything else, frankly.

    Anyone know if I should be concerned about a leaf slipping out of alignment? I can hear her creaking and possibly shifting as I go around a corner.

    I know nothing other than it will "ride", and apparently for a long ass time.
    20230114_125530.jpg
    Had some clunking while turning, discovered it then. DeepCreep sprayed all the leafs, that helped with the clunking, but I have no spacers either.
    I did some DIY rednecking on it, and just spray them down 1-2 a year. With our trucks Jack, this is prob the least of our worries :rofl:

    Whoa.... Wtf is going on with your overload leaf? That thing ride like an empty dually or what? Usually they are either flat or turned so that the arch is the opposite direction from the rest of the leaf packs arch.

    HAhahaha, dude they are Stout. Not sure why it's like that, PO Prob built a bastard pack? Remember the photo at the lumber yard? I figured I had 1200+lb in the back and it only dropped it 3/4 to 1".
    The Only thing that ever squated it decently was this FULL load of logs.

    Yeah I think those overloads are flipped the wrong way. Possibly not even from a Tundra haha

    As for the creaking, I'm gonna go with ... you may want to consider replacing your spacers. It doesn't look like the flat part is left, all that's left is the nub. This is a very easy process to do.

    Last time I looked at Dorman's site, I couldn't find any for our 1GT. But ... It looks like this 12-pack could possibly work, supposedly good for all 2" leafs that have a ½" hole: https://www.amazon.com/Spring-Squeak-Cushion-Plastic-Silencer/dp/B07W3SWQT9/

    There was a spacer in there at one time? I don’t recall but I never looked in the history of owning it. Haha

    Raise the ass end of the truck using the frame, let the axle and tires hang. Take a prybar and pry apart the leaves and replace the plastic spacers. I have this nifty tool to hep with spreading the leaf pack. I haven't used it yet. Came in the mail after I had already replaced the pads near the ends of the leaf pack. I still need to do the ones closer to the axle on both sides so I'll get to try it out then.

    Finally ordered replacement foams fer me cupholders. Passenger side is missing a chunk and driver side is all there but has gotten very week over time. Almost dumped a medium Diet Dr Pepper from Whattyburger the other day, which if you know Whattyburger, their medium is almost bigger than other restaurants' large drinks.

    Ordered these.

    Did you find the one for the left? 69320-0C010. Discontinued and I've looked everywhere including Rock Auto, Partsouq, etc. I think I'm sunk. Maybe a salvage yard.

    In the front, pop up/out that piece of the console with the cupholes.

    On the underside, IIRC, there's a pair of screws that hole the top half to the bottom. Slip the two halves apart, slide out the old foams, slide in the new using the holes in the foams as your guide to avoid installing wrong. Reassemble.

    It was simple enough I didn't need instructions.
