Magnetic Platinum 4x4 from TX

Howdy!

I am new around here, but not new to Tundra's. I had a 2012 Tundra Limited TRD up until a month or so ago. Made the long sad story mistake of trading it in for a 2012 F150 Platinum. But that mistake has now been reversed and we drove home in a 2012 Platinum Crewmax 4x4 last night.

So far the only things done to the truck are I changed the stock tires out for some LT285/55/20 Michelin LTX AT2's for hauling and off-roading.

I plan to do shocks on all four corners, debating going with bilstein 5100s for the adjustments, or I may just go stock TRD off-road shocks.

Now for the pics!

2012 Tundra Crewmax Platinum 4x4

Nice truck there. What exactly did you not like about the F150? Just curious. I was looking at the F150 also before I bought my tundra.

Alot of the features were great on the f150. I had major issues with reliability of the engine and of course the massive wait time for any service from Ford. I had a total of 11 things wrong with the vehicle with only 3100 miles on it, some engine, some cosmetic/electronic. It was a nice vehicle when it "worked".

What I liked about the f150 features were power deploy running boards, SYNC system is very in depth and easy to use... much more streamlined than the Tundra voice act system, old man tailgate step and stripper pole was very nice. Outside of that, the ride was pretty good for a Ford, and the electric power steering is a dream compared to the hydraulics on the Tundra.

I may have gotten a bad one, but my stance is if your gonna pay money for something it better not have issues when it's brand new.

Congrats on your new truck. I have a 2010 CM Platinum 4wd and love it. One of my favorite upgrades was a set of White Knuckle rock sliders. I upgraded my suspension to 5100's but now wish I had saved my money and went with Old Man Emu. Enjoy!

They level the truck just fine but performance-wise there's not that much improvement. From what I've read, the OME kits are stronger and better suited for off-road conditions. The next step up are true coil-overs and those cost serious coin.

Just ordered a bakflip F1 and bakbox for the truck. Will post pics once it's all done. They are also sending me the drop down brackets for the rail system in the bed at no charge.
