I've been using my Tundra as a work truck while building our loghome. Too many long trips in the dark and winter have taken a toll, hit 2 deer and beat it up hauling construction materials and tools. Truck has been a good rig, but it became time to upgrade...then I saw what the newer ones were selling for!
So here I am with a 2007 Tundra double cab with 152K on it, looking for advice on getting this thing back in shape to last another 5-8years.
The 5.7 still runs like top, but the VSC, ABS, 4Hi 4Lo lights flash. I have trouble shifting into and out of 4x4 too.
Front bumper and grill are toast. Rear lower portion of the bed is flexed in a bit and bumper is bent a bit. Hood has some dings from PVC pipe unloading itself during a emergency stop.
Well that's what I'm up against and Here's my initial plan:
1. The paint is good overall, except hood damage, so I would like to take out the hood dents and then add a vinyl wrap on the upper portion of the truck.
2. I already bought a ICI magnum front bumper with some LED lights and plan on getting a matching rear bumper.
3. Get the relays or solenoid issues fixed.
4. Add a leveling kit or small 2.5 lift. Looking at toytec 3/1 or BOSS Ultimate lift. I have almost new 275/65/18 and don't plan on getting any new tires for a while. But with the new bumper.... I will add either a winch or possibly a lighter duty snowplow. so might have to upgrade the tires to 285/70/18 or something.
I am looking for suggestions/thoughts and encourage any/all input. I'll post some before, during and after posts as I progress.
