    Just got my 2013 2.7L access cab today, it is the SR5 package the color is Spruce Mica and it is a Manual-5 speed. I love the truck i am going to drive it easy first 1000 miles to break engine right, cant tow anything till after 1000 miles lol so i cant buy my boat yet. I love this truck I have seen diffrent mods on here I was thinking of doing a 3in lift, and with that lift what tire size would look and fit right i dont know i could research it. Also with the dark color i was thinking of black rims with small chrome accents
    (what size rim guys 16" so i can swap tires to stock rim for winter or would stock tire size look funny with a 3" lift) also a black bull bar for front bumper and 30% tint for main windows it looks like stock tint on back glass and access cab windows are 30% forgot to ask dealer.

    I dont know if i should buy a aen air filter for better air flow, i have heard you guys saying they are better than k&n, I dont know if a air intake system would help any either. All my other truck i had true duals with no muffler i doubt ill do it to this one because i dont want it to sound ricey. And it seems most of you guys like a magnaflow for sound better than flowmaster seen some sound clips on here but i am a nubie so let me know guys

    Thanks...

    Bought my '12 in June (same everything as yours except the color, mine's black). I washed, clayed, polished and waxed it 2 weeks after I bought it. Not gonna lie, it was a LONG, LONG job (7 hours) but it was totally worth it. Especially with a black car, I could tell the difference, even brand new.

    I did an interior detail yesterday but it's too cold here to wash, etc. I can't wait to do it but, as I'm not too far from you in MD, it's too cold to do it. I thought of taking it down to the local do it yourself car wash but, although it's covered, it's not any warmer and I like to be at home when I go through all that B.S. The salt and junk on my car is driving me insane but I also don't want to freeze to death either.
