Looks good! Wish I hadn't got the TRD now that I'm ripping so much out and changing it. If I do it again I will just get the Base model and add what I want.

Ya I know. I remember thinking "ok, I HAVE to get the SR5 obviously, but not the TRD. I want to build it". I would get the bone stock 2011 black one now if I could do it again. Keyless is useless once you get an alarm, cruise and wipers are an easy add-on, the black looks fine with the fenders the same color, and I swapped rims already. Meh, still love the blue though

They are still shipping right now. Bought them off a guy on here. I also just bought a set of used stock bridgestone Duellers 265/65/17 that have about 80% left. I wasn't sure what suspension/lift/tire size I wanted so I decided to just go cheap stock for now. I will have pics soon when they are installed friday though

Congrats on your new build! I got the pretty base access cab too. Not even and SR5! I'd like to start the mods but I'd have to start saving for that stuff. Keep us updated, I'd love to see the changes.

Feels the exact same, but keeps momentum better then the 265 BFs
They are P rated and weigh 46lbs a tire, and the 265 BFs were 45.76lbs a tire. So the weight is the same, but the lighter tread makes it smoother. I love them. Im pretty sure I will finish the tank with +.5-1 mpg better too because of them.
