Well all I figured after reading all the posts about custom builds I would add mine in here as well. I will be adding to this thread period as items get changed. I’ve always had pickup trucks in one shape or the other. In diesel or gas. When shopping for a half ton pickup, a good friend had recommended the Tundra and I never looked back.

In the first pic, forgot to mention that I have Carid, Tow mirrors. As well adding some Ridgid driving lights.

I ended up with the Trc-Rac system because I liked the idea of putting up the racks when needed. We have a lot of parking garages here and I knew I wouldn’t fit if I had them on. So in order to keep the undercover Flex folding cover I had to modify the Trac-Rac rail system. I ended fabricating an aluminum u channel to fit underneath the rail. Allowing the rail to lift off the side rails of the truck about a half inch. This allowed the rubber gasket of the Undercover flex to tuck down on the bed rail.1E3C77A1-DA7D-4237-8D82-F2F37FAAA553.jpeg66908091-774C-478C-A6DC-9A032032E8BA.jpeg0BC0565B-7B4E-46E7-A15F-7A88C458B37F.jpeg227E9399-8C43-4918-B6E8-F8411101B15C.jpeg

After tolerating our really weak audio system. I decided that an upgrade was in order. Don’t have many pics of the tear down. Since I stripped most of interior out. I went ahead and did sound deadening. Upgraded speakers, head unit, amplifier and finally a custom sub box.

I like this idea. I have a bakflip MX4 and was trying to figure out this same set up while keeping the bakflip functional.

Added a TRD rear sway bar and a Dirty Deeds Industries 8” exhaust. In the same pictures you Will see the Bilstein 5100’s front and rear set on the mid settings. Improved ride quality with the new shocks. The exhaust is not obnoxious and sounds really good when you lay into it.

Before any mods....E14A4344-D5EA-433E-A2DE-1570775B3EFB.jpeg

A couple items that were installed but no pictures, I did the rear fold down seat mod. One of the the “Required Mods” if you own a dual cab. No idea why Toyota stopped that.

The other since I travel to other states and unfortunately travel to not so savory places in my region for work. I wanted something to protect my valuables. I ended up buying and installing a “Console Safe”

www.consolevault.com

These guys were great to deal with. I had placed an order with them for a unit in my truck. Unfortunately the safe wouldn’t arrive until after my trip. So I reached out to these folks, Explained my situation, and they ended up sending me a demo overnighted. And when I returned they would send me the new one and I would send the other one back. Highly recommend one for your trucks. My neighbor is state police and had one installed in personal truck. When into the city and some would be thieves broke in. Anything that wasn’t in the safe was taken. The safe tool a beating, but his valuables were secured.
