    I bought the rims/tires/spacers used, so the Coopers weren't a choice per se. Things that drove my decision towards the Toyos: 50kmi warranty, 3PMS rating, and generally well-liked throughout the Tundra community, from hours and hours of searching/reading.

    This weekend, I am planning to install the CBI front bumper that has been sitting in my garage for months. The only part holding me up is trimming the RCI skid plate. I also need a moderately priced option for fog lights. The OE ones are complete trash (by means of light output).

    Funny story about this. Wife cued this up for the family, and had some hot chocolate, blanket, etc., and with a smile, said something like "Oh, I just felt like watching a family friendly movie."

    First line of the movie and the dog drops an F-bomb. Wife's face was like :eek::eek:

    Son and I were DYING laughing :rofl: She obviously had no clue it was *NOT* a family friendly movie. :D

    These are awesome. You can get just the pods also not in a specific kit. Also they will likely run a BF sale here in afew weeks.

    Hit up @memario1214 I'm sure there will be some good sales coming in November too. DiodeDynamics is pretty good value for the money. Good luck with your install.

    Thanks for the suggestion. These look great and are about what I want to spend. I would just need the pods for the new bumper, but may grab the entire kit in case I ever put the OE bumper back on.

    I need to get this clip replaced. It is the one that holds the breather hoses for the front diff and transfer case. Not easy to get to so I will be pulling the tire to get in there. No idea how that damn thing broke

    Got the freshly rebuilt Fox TRD Pro shocks put on yesterday evening. Gained about exactly 1-1/2" on both front corners. Sitting nearly perfectly level. Rear is 1/8" higher on DSR, and 1/2" higher on PSR. Full tank of gas.
    Took it out for a quick spin in the dirt and street. By far it's plusher than the stock TRD Sport package suspension. It definitely floats. I will miss the Sport suspension cornering, that's for sure. But, overall, I will love this Pro suspension. It's got the plushness for off-roading I was after, without being crazy soft. I took the rear TRD sway bar off after I got home from the quick test. So, I will see today how it feels without that.

    I don't have a lot of suspension experience on the Tundra's. But, I did put 6112/5160 on my previous Tundra. That Bilstein combo was on the stiff side until you picked up speed. The street handling was pretty good, virtually no body roll or brake diving. But, it didn't have much for slow speed off-roading plushness.
    The Fox definitely has that plushness I was after. So, so far I definitely like it.

    I never intended to build a faux pro, but I found parts I couldn't say no to.

    Not great pics, but it was all I got yesterday.

    Too many mods to come

    Just extend the hoses into the engine bay and get rid of that.

    Thanks. I may have to go a bit higher, though. We'll see. I need to run to Sedona and see what scrapes

    That is what I was just doing, trying to see how hard it is to replace the entire hose. Gotta see if I can get in there

    CBI front bumper. I need fogs . ..

    Also moved the front sensor location down about 2". I've been having intermittent issues with it after the relocation

    This is the first time I ever looked and there are metal lines that mount on the frame and the hoses go up about 6”. Higher than the frame but I am headed to the auto parts store and get longer hoses and bring them up to the top of the engine.

    While in there it has pissed me off since day one when SDHQ installed the lift when I got a stint and one side looked like the first pic. Nobody has ever asked me since 2018 who installed it, maybe they thought I was the idiot. Anyway I had another sticker laying around and I replaced the sticker and put the hose clamp where it was designed to go.
    When I asked SDHQ why the two sides were different and they said it was a mistake and it tore up the sticker so they handed me a new sticker

    I swear that my front breathers were mounted to the firewall in the engine bay.

    And yeah - you can even see the obvious groove for the clamp to mount the reservoir. o_O

    I thought the same thing. Maybe I just imagined them being mounted that way.
