My Toyota Tundra


This page has some pictures and the build status of my Regular Cab (6.5 ft bed) Toyota Tundra. My truck has: the 5.7L V8, six-speed automatic transmission (AB60F), tow package (150A alternator, transmission cooler, 4 and 7-pin wiring harness, hitch receiver, etc.), 4×4, a 10.5″ semi-float Toyota axle , and LT 265/70R-18 BFGoodrich A/T KO2 LT285/70R-18 Nitto Exo Grapplers wrapped around original equipment (OE) 18×8″ aluminum wheels. This truck is awesome and more reliable than the Jeep was. Page still  always under destruction.

There is a lot of storage space behind the seats.
The matching spare fits in the stock storage location.
The differential is huge!
A marvelous piece of engineering.

I purchased a 34R-PC1500 battery from Odyssey. You won’t find a part number for the height adapter on Odyssey’s website though West Coast Batteries has one for $10.

I installed a Tekosha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller.

The 5.7L is simply amazing!

Here are some newer shots of the truck; now with Fox 2.0 coilovers!

Now with King 2.5 shocks/coilovers!

Painted the rear axle:

Look here for some great photos of installing an ARB air locker!

The BFG KO2s are gone after about 13,000 miles. The treadwear was pretty pathetic, with one of the tires going from 15/32nds to 5/32nds. Complete and utter garbage. This is my second and last set of crappy BFG tires. Here are the new Nittos:

Got some Specialty Products Company Light Racing upper control arms installed:


New front wheel bearings installed at about 83,000 miles:

Here’s my Blue Sea Systems fusebox and breaker:

My truck makes good shelter for cats apparently:

Truck beds are awesome!

More photos that I need to re-arrange:

I added some door sill protectors (took me long enough), some grip tape to the cab cargo area, and the Tundra has broke 100,000 miles:

Some pictures of my repainted recovery hooks and the TRDBro skid plate that I installed a year ago.

Here are a few photos of my newly installed CKMA12 air compressor:
