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 (AB60), tow package (170A 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 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.

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:

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!
