    Apparently, I ran over a freaking needle. Freaking junkies. That makes 5 found by me and 1 found by my truck.
    I also got a full size spare. This was the first time the OE 255/65r18 ever touched the ground, but it had the usual dry rot for a 14 yr old tire and I didn't enjoy playing musical tires. $70 more per tire than when I bought the other 4 in June.

    Yeah sorry I’m so used to saying “mount” but I’m looking for the ditch like brackets the ones that go on the hood. I think a popular one is Cali Raised but I was wondering if anyone saw a good deal out there for my 07

    I've got an 07, got the mounts from CBI Fab probably 4 years ago, your other options are SDHQ and Cali Raised... the SDHQ ones sit real low and tight

    CBI: https://cbioffroadfab.com/product/toyota-tundra-ditch-light-brackets-2007-2020/ ($50.22 on sale)
    SDHQ: https://sdhqoffroad.com/collections...oyota-tundra-sdhq-built-a-pillar-light-mounts ($119.95)

    Safe to assume the CBI Fab have held pretty solid? Thank you I’ll probably go with the CBI option since I won’t be doing any super heavy off road mainly on pavement and a few couple of overlanding trips

    I am more of a matte black person and I have used Steel-It for all emblems and front grille if you check my posts. Very durable and going to test on my wheels next.

    yeah the CBI ones are great! No chips in the powder coat, the one thing I don't like about them is that they are a little angled (I think its to match the curve of the hood) I haven't taken my angle finder to it yet to see, but other than that I like them... I can get a picture for reference if you want

    Yes please that would be great! Based on your description I think that’s pretty neat considering that the main complain on the ditch lights is light glare on the hood specially on our white horses.

    I'm looking at new antennas. Has anyone swapped theres for a short one that improved range?

    Got the icon rxt leaf pack in, just stuck with the shipped set up. Had a helluva time getting it in, especially that sonuva$&@“ pin on the bottom to the axle! Talked with their support who helped out so that was nice. With the aftermarket Amazonian shackles I’m looking at 3” lift in the back right now but hoping it’ll settle to about 1.5-2” broken in.

    I bought one of those stubby antennas a couple of years back for the looks. I couldn't pick up anything with it so the stock antenna went back on.

    I'll put my angle finder on it tomorrow and see if they are actually the same angle, my concern was that they weren't, along with the picture!

      hey were pretty good quality and had holes to zip tie the wiring. They definitely angled down, which I didn’t prefer. I ended up ordering the CBI which are definitely a better quality bracket, didn’t angle down (at least for me), but did take several weeks to get.

    The short antenna’s usually perform much worse. I did order the one below, and seeems to do OK. Although I use Apple Music more than radio now.

    This is mine. I usually use Spotify or an audiobook, but I've never noticed reception issues when I do use the radio. I'd buy this one again. In fact, I may just get one for my dad's Taco...

    That’s 2 for CBI the waiting won’t be much of a bother I’m doing a list of things I want to get most have a pretty long waiting time on them including the ditch lights I plan on installing. This helps narrow my options a lot more

    TRD rear sway bar. The truck feels much more planted and handling is much improved. I didn't mind how it drove before, but this is even better.

    Can these be installed with lift kits? Does the size of lift matter?

    Yes, but in your case, you will need custom links because of the unusual amount of lift your truck has.
