    Within the first hundred miles I made sure to get the tint and bedliner done! Toyota promised me the truck would have a bedliner from the factory and sure enough, it arrived with nothing in the bed. With that said, I made them pay for my bedliner at a shop of my choice and time since they dropped the ball. Inyati Bedliners in Gilbert, AZ came highly recommended by my friends at SDHQ Offroad who also trust them for their own builds. They did a superb job taking all the little bolts and removable parts out before spraying then reinstalled everything.

    Immediately after the bedliner was finished I drove over to the tint shop and got my 15% all the way around over the stock privacy glass, with a 5% strip on the windshield! It came out nice and dark, but not too dark for night driving :cool:

    Made sure it fit in the garage! ...With inches to spare

    First big purchase, Methods!

    186 miles on the truck and I made the next big purchase on some DirtyFIVES! 35/12.50R18 Toyo Open Country R/Ts on stock TRD Pro Suspension! :thumbsup:

    Last look at stock, but I got excited when I saw the droop, not bad at all ;)

    Fixed the first couple posts and started my mod list :cool: Still have quite a few more pics to post!

    DUDE! I was so disappointed when they scrapped the third one....:( Guess Disney moved on to Marvel and Star Wars and forgot about how much TRON meant to the fans.... So pissed I'd have to go to Shanghai Disneyland to see their TRON themed Tomorrowland :pout:

    Knowing it would take alittle while to get my new shocks built (stay tuned :spy: ), I went ahead and bought the Coachbuilder +3 Shackles, which includes billet carrier bearing drop spacers, and the new bushings for the stock leaf packs to fit in the new shackles. I also got some strut shims or spacers for the front from David @Coachbuilder1 (2 for each side) to lift it about an inch. I was really impressed with the quality and size of the new shackles, very well built and it brought the truck together nicely on 35s!

    Before and after with the strut shims. Nice setup for sure...but sucks they aren't adjustable coilovers...(and as the almighty @jberry813 would say..."Stock Sucks!")

    Billet CB Drop, so far no vibes after driving 1000 miles

    Before measurements included the TRD Pro Suspension and 35" Toyo RTs with roughly half a tank of gas. After measurements include the Coachbuilder +3 Shackles (1.75"), and 2 (0.5") shims each side in front with alittle more than a quarter tank of gas.
