Well, after a year of waiting, planning and staring at my pc screen, it has finally started! Let us begin.
My truck the day I bought it. 09 TRD sport, DBL cab long bed. Caliber- 5.56
Here's all my stuff, just waiting on some final parts. 5 Mickey Thompson ATZ tires 285/70/17, OME 885's, 9000's, Dakar leafs, OME rear shocks, 4 Pro Comp 7189 17x8's, 1 Pro Comp steel 17x8 (spare), Demello Offroad rock crusher slideres, HI-lift, dynomax ultraflo muffler (already installed), and LR UCA's.
While waiting for my lift to arrive, I purchased a toolbox from UWS, sockmonkey decals, and a tundra 4x4 badge. Here they are with the badge blacked out.
Way better than the stock decals and after watching a video on youtube, very easy.
Next I picked up a hi-lift and all of the expensive ass accessories for it. I chose to install it underneath my toolbox so it was not very visible to people. I painted the handle black to help hide it, but I still need to paint the handle keeper thing.
Testing out my lift mate
Time for the lift! Went with a full OME. 885's with 9000's and top plate and LR UCA's up front, dakars and OME shocks in the rear. Here's the driver side spindle I had to replace. Took me about a day.(the top of it was bent from hitting a median at 70mph)
Finally the driver side was finished.
finally on day 1.5, at 11pm, its done.
Next day, putting the wheels on.
Ran into another snag. after I got my wheels mounted, I was on my way to the alignment shop and got a really bad vibration in my steering wheel. Told him when I got there so he test drove it and when he put it on the lift, the lugs were about to come off So he tightened them and aligned my truck. On the way home I got the same thing. Something was up. I took off a tire to check it out anf foud this.
My lugs, gorilla with extra long shank, were too long for the rim. They would vibrate and come loose.
So, with the correct, regular shank lugs, here it is.
