The first order of business was the front bumper. I ditched the stock bumper and with a cheap Harbor Freight bender I built this.
The bumper really got my creative juices flowing so I decided to build a tire gate. But after building it I realized that It wasn't fuctional and what was the poing of something if it wasnt functional? The idea was to build it where I could still get my quad in the back that is why the tire tilts back. Bad idea!
I realized it was stupid so I sold it on craigslist and moved on.
I started gathering parts that I could afford slowly and upgraded the front to Icon Coilovers and Uniball upper control arms. I was super happy with the ride quality but soon I knew it wasn's enough. i located some glass from a member on Dezert Rangers along with some 2.0 fox shox for the rear.
Sent the glass to get painted a couple months later
The paint doesnt match 100% but it is better than rolling around with white fenders.
About a month ago I ordered a LT kit from Camburg. Jeff and Scott were very helpfull and let me know the kit was on back order. Man That was the longest wait of my life! the kit showed up Thursday and I had my truck stripped and ready to go.
I was bored waiting for the UPS guy to show and got a little carried away with the rattle can haha.
Finally after 6 hours of waiting the kit showed and my friend and I started hanging the arms
Four hours later we had the truck on the ground and ready to roll. I still need to mount the bumps but it already rides sooooooo much better! I installed a spacer in the rear for now until I can find a tundra rear axle.
I'm removing the TRD sticker by the way haha. I got them as a gift and the person was so happy to give them to me I thought I would at least try them out.
So now I am gathering parts for the rear. Here are my future plans:
1. TC 12" shackels with mounts
2. 3.0 x 16 FOX bypasses
3. Bed cage (Small and out of the way so I can still use the bed)
4. Deaver f67's or all-pro 50t (can't decide)
5. Box rear frame
6. Double tire carrier
7. lighting (going with led's. thinking 30" let on the roof and 20" on the bumper
8. Custom heim steering
