Post dpeach's Big Sky Build - 2015 Limited CM TRD

It's about time I started a build log for my new 2015 Tundra CrewMax TRD. I took delivery of the truck June 26th, 2015 in Bozeman, MT. I came form a 3/4 ton Dodge and could not be happier!

This build log will be pretty slow, but should have some good mods as we go along. I have a lot of plans for the truck, some may be soon, some a year down the road. I will continually update this and try to provide feedback/reviews/details about mods and parts to help others with questions, decisions, or just some nice photos!

This truck will be my daily driver, family vehicle, weekend project hauler, camping rig, off road beast, hunting camp, and anything else I throw at it. The goal is to have a fun, reliable all-around truck that is made for Montana!

*A side note on the photos: I am a bit of a photography hobbyist, so expect a ton of pictures. I may not do any mods, but just go out and detail the truck one day and take 20 pictures. I am also VERY busy between work and family, so I may post a mod and pictures a few days or weeks after I did it, yet talk about it like it was today (if you're peeking at the exif data). You have been warned!

The stock truck:











Factory Accessories/Add-Ons:
-TRD package
-TRD rear sway bar
-TRD air filter
-Blind spot monitoring
-Entune Premium JBL audio with nav
-Moonroof
-Glass break sensor

Short Term(ish) Mods:

-Window tinting - COMPLETE
-TRD Pro front grill
-TRD Pro skid plate
-Steps/nerf bars/sliders - undecided
-USB center console relocation

-Anytime fog light mod

Long Term(ish) Mods:
-Mid-travel suspension upgrade with larger tires (most likely on down the road when the stock tires are getting warn). Will use stock 18" TRD rims
-Larger fuel tank - either the 46 gal transfer flow or 2016 OEM tank
-Headlight retro-fit
-Stereo upgrade
-Integrated CB/Ham radio
-More?

Update

Tonight's mod: new startup and screen off images.



The mostly white image was very bright in my truck in the dark garage.

I may invert the colors to lighten up the image, plus it may blend in better with the background being black.

Here is the JPEG out of Photoshop, I'll most likely upload it to the truck tomorrow.

Nice rig.
I can't understand why Toyota does sport colormatched rear bumper and leaves all that chrome up front for you to now have to swap out...seems odd. We all have to spend so much time de-chroming around here!
that's a nice feature on the newer head units... one of the fun little things I will enjoy when I aftermarket swap my 08 to something better.

Yeah mine is a weird situation. It's a Limited with Blind Spot Monitoring. The BSM has the rear bumpers color matched, but the front is chrome. Should have went up to the Platinum for less de-chroming.

Plasti Dip

Worked on de-chroming the truck. Tried some black Plasti-Dip for the 5.7 and Tundra badge, and attempted white for the Limited badge.

The black looks great, went on easy, and looks painted. The white I'm not a huge fan of. The consistency was very different than the black, and it kept running and bubbling. Maybe I got a bad can? Might try it one more time then give up and go back to black.

My rear bumper caps are already white, so that's good to go. I thought about dipping the front bumper caps, mirrors, and door handles. The bumpers and mirrors will get a lot of abuse form the bugs, and the door handles from opening. I'm just going to order color-match pieces instead.

There are some threads around here on how to do it. It's pretty easy. I made the image myself, very easy as well. I can do it with any state/image if you want something custom.

Here's what I used for reference:
