    I just watched a video and I thought that it was more involved, talk about feeling stupid.

    Repost this same ask in the Gen1 General Discussion thread. I may be wrong, but I thought I recall seeing some folks there that did or still do have similar rigs...

Wasn’t gonna install a winch so decided to sell my relentless fab bumper and bought this simple but clean iron bison bumper from Amazon. Was scepticle but it is solid for what it is and I think fits the tundras aesthetics very nicely. Honest opinions welcome.

    Looks really clean, you should probably post a link for it because I foresee some people asking for it.

    I've seen that bumper, and it looks real nice. Glad to see it on this forum with legit feedback.

    Your truck looks great!

    Yeah, it’s fairly simple. 30 Torx bit and a Phillips bit is all you need. Just be careful as the volume/phone setups can “fall apart” when you take them out. They go back together fairly simple, just caught me off guard.

    I love the look of these (in black). Reminds me of the 3rd Gen wheels. But the 18mm offset has me on the fence. Factory is 60mm, which means these wheels will stick out 1.65” further than factory. Don’t really like the sound of that. Thoughts?

    Finally installed the Tyger fender flares. Not a fan of the smooth finish or the stainless bolts, but too busy these days to address them. Was ten minutes late for a birthday party as it was.

    But, the install was easy and smooth. My tires are just barely covered, but that is about perfect. Too wide of flares and skinny tires looks silly, IMHO.

    Also replaced my rear windows, since the bottom brackets that are glued to them rusted out so badly that the rear driver's window bracket fell off (thank goodness the window didn't break).

    Nope. Started at 8.5 and didn’t measure on the dipstick. Ended up adding another qt to get it to register. Did 9qts last oil change.

    Just an FYI, after putting the guards on I had a lot of squeaking. After removing the skids and seeing the rub marks on the hardware and guards I trimmed the guards and no more squeaking

    Thanks! I was on the fence too, but glad I went this route instead of a flush mount one.

    Working on a few small projects. Rago dash plate, Bulletpoint MagSafe charger (which required adding a quick-charge USB port), and front cam. Had a pretty good day considering mobility and stamina are WAY down because of a back injury - 3 herniated disks and a compressed nerve root. And feet that are extremely swollen and painful from a combination of an abnormal gait (I have to use a walker to get around) and several medications that cause swelling of the feet and ankles.

    Got to the point where I just have to run the wiring for the front cam and button it up. And possibly re-flash the Maestro because the button I programmed for the front cam doesn’t seem to be working. Kind of makes me wish I had gotten the Bluetooth Maestro.

    Does not interfere with the TRD dual exhaust.

    Decided to cut out the stock frame, instead of replacing it with the flimsy one provided. Since this part is discontinued by Toyota, I bought this one off of eBay for $100. Off brand, and it actually works and fits perfect.

    Currently waiting on parts. Gas lid randomly fell off, I like the black on tan and it fits the theme of my truck so I ordered a replacement from a black truck lol should be here soon. Also backed into a tree. I’ve been having an existential crisis over getting aftermarket tails or not. I had hiRev on my 21, I’ve seen some of you guys have horror stories with the Morimoto tails, and I cannot get myself to like alpharex’ offerings. There are some stunning ones I saw here but they are $800 - valentis, I can’t get myself to pull the trigger on those though https://valentiusa.com/shop/ultra-led-tail-light-for-tundra/
