    Just got a lil bonus, also happened to just get the Tundra last week. Aside from a badass dinner to celebrate me and my future wife's awesomeness, I figured I'd throw around $1k at the truck.

    The truck is mostly stock except for Icon coils up front and Toyo Open Country's...

    Things I want/need:
    - Lockable Tonneau cover for snowbaords etc.
    - Sliders ("steps" for the fiance)
    - Rear suspension overhaul - hoppy as fk
    - Better lighting

    Help a Tundra newb piece it together. It'd be cool to get it all locally to save on shipping RCI, TOYTEC, etc.

    If you have guns, might want to buy ammo.

    Not sure right now but Outdoorlimited.com always has some good deals going on. We bought 2000 rounds of 204 off them for our prairie dog hunt they have great prices.

    yep, i think this is a must. there's a lot more on craigslist after an in depth search so I'll probably go that route as well as rear suspension.

    I also forgot that i bought the truck with a valet key only, so i've got to get a normal key for it as well.

    Kinda thinking about replacing them TBH. they squeak on bumps so i'll either rebuild or replace them, possibly both then sell em off. I don't know how many miles are on them nor do i know how the previous owner drove or took care of the rig, so I'm try to play catch-up and do everything new so I know.
