    I just got a pair of tundra calipers model is 13wl I’ve been doing research online and can’t find the answers I need. I just wanted to know what year and model tundra they are for since I have to buy new brakes pads for it. Thanks

    Did some research for this. Found the only difference between the two is where the hard line attaches. Otherwise, they are identical.

    My 13WL 231 mm Toyota OEM calipers came off of a 2006 Tundra 4x4 Limited w/ the 4.7 V8. When I replaced my new pads they were the 5.3" brake pads & 12.5" rotors. I decided to go to a parts store instead of Toyota. The parts store had 2 different sizes to choose from. So I called Toyota and got the Part#'s and luckily the parts store was able to cross reference them. Then I found out that I needed the larger of the two. I also bought @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc brake lines too.
    Hope this helps @Junetaco03 Good luck!

    That did help! Thanks! The person I bought the breaks from didn’t know what year they were he only knew they were from a second gen tundra.

    I ordered what I wrote above. 2006 Tundra 4x4 limited. With the 4.7 V8. Be ready for a much larger rotor and you already know about the size of the calipers! Just trim that dust shield and a few other little things. Then you'll be good to go. I'm sure you know the proper backspacing necessary also, when it comes to your wheels. When I installed mine. I wasn't sure if it wasn't going to fit or not with a 16x8" rim and only 4.5" BS.
    It all depends on how the wheel is built. Like if the center of it goes inward or outward. Needless to say my Methid double standards were ok for the job. The 06 Tundra I got everything off of had those really nice Alloy Tundra wheels. I think they were 17". Since the truck was a limited.
