    Almost done with wiring my rear bumper lights. Think I spent more time trying to figure out how to hide and run the wire then installing the lights them selves . Tested the lights with a battery and wiring seems all good. Have a goodnight all

    Giving this some thought. Maybe so. I know when I jack it up, either from the pumpkin, or from the center of a front cross member, the passenger side tires always clear the concrete first. Even on the alignment rack, raised on a cross member but with the two support points outboard, and close to the frame rails, the passenger tires were higher off the platform than the driver tires. Are our Tundras just heavier on the driver's side, or are our suspensions designed to droop more on this side, or both?

    If we tried to level by measuring frame height off the concrete, where, what points on the frame, would we measure?

    Back from Vegas for the annual offroad trip. Couple busted rear bumpers, and an exploded rotor (not mine). The new Kings are amazing.

    Obviously not your rotor, that caliper isn't painted :rofl:

    Glad you had a good trip and the new shocks are being a noticeable difference.

    38 gallon tank = about an extra 130lbs when the tank is full; don't know if maybe they compensate for that in the build or not :notsure:

    Problem is... it would either be right when it's full and then of the rest of the time or vice versa.

    I'm not sure what the solution is in terms of measuring or making it look 'right'. I was just thinking I know both of my Tundras don't measure evenly side to side (one SR5 and one Pro), and I know a lot of folks try to adjust the suspension to compensate... Just didn't know if it's the suspension that's a little off or the way the body is tied into the frame that's off. I've never really put effort into it because I don't like the idea of chasing cosmetic perfection at the expense of unbalancing the suspension (ride, travel, tire wear, etc...) if the issue is really in the body...

    Yes, they are heavier. Battery, steering column, fuel tank, and driver are all on the driver side. I believe every set of OEM coils accounts for this. Not sure if the rear leafs do as well. But as @Tripleconpanna points out, it’s not a static load. If your fuel light comes on with 8 gal left in the tank like mine does, and you consistently put 30 gal in your tank, that’s a weight swing of 180 lb (fuel weighs 6 lb/gal). It’s basically the difference of having an adult passenger sitting on the same side as you.

    We just got back from a Holiday drive. Starbucks was the last stop. The wife ordered a double con panna. My head swiveled around so fast, I tweaked something. Suspension, frame or body, I'm not saying. But, I had no idea what a con panna was. Now I do. :cheers:

    Had a nice weekend camping and squeezed in some wheeling both in the woods then at the dunes out running sxs and dirt bikes. New tune and intake/throttle body are spicy.

    Need to back down the pedal sensitivity down a little had some trouble keeping it steady over the big stuff. Turned some tubes and trucks feeling really good. Hopefully get the harness bar and push bar done soon.

    Likely one of the best new tundras bought since the last few years.

    I feel like my '21 custom long bed with 20K is becoming super rare, and mine isn't crewmax or fancy interior...1,100 miles is just wild...such a great find

    Guessing that bad boy fetched a pretty penny, deservedly. Lots of folks would love a super low mile Gen 2.5.

    Did those spliced pieces get wrapped with electrical tape or some conduit? Vibration, etc., may rub through the insulation and cause a short. Just a thought..

    @NewImprovedRon Those wires that are exposed are the lights for the running boards. I didn't run those but will rerun them since I'm getting tired of the little light output from the OEM lights that came from Amp steps. My run is the new looking wire loom with sealant.
