Evening Guys,

I recently bought myself a 13' Magnetic Gray 5.7 DC 4X4 Tundra. I'm currently stationed in Astoria, OR and in the Coast Guard. So far I am loving the Tundra. I just ordered some N-Fab Textured Cab length step bars from SVcustoms (great price!) and I got in my G-Tek black door sill protectors in a few days ago. I'll post pictures once do the install.

I have been reading the forums a lot lately, and I am planning to do a plasti dip on the chrome grill surround and the center Toyota symbol in the next week or two. Besides that I'm planning to put in a Line-X liner in the back and then I want to move onto some sort of suspension / wheels and tires without breaking the bank.

Anyhow, I'll post pictures of my truck following the install of the N-Fabs and the G-Teks.

Kyle.

-Bryce,

I bought it from Lums. I ended up paying 31,500 out the door with title and tax (and you know how that can be in OR). I got 2,500 in rebates at 0% interest. I know I could have saved a bit more by playing off the dealers but the price was right in line with USAA's buying service so I was pretty happy.

Bryce,

Yea, it was a SR5. There were a few little things added including a convenice package and towing package. I think the unit you are thinking of is Cape Disapointment, however I am actually stationed on one of the ships out here. Its crazy, how ever since I bought my truck I have started looking into mods. Its crazy how expensive things start to get once you figure in a Lift/Leveling Kit, Wheels and Tires and other mods. I think my wife is about to kill me.

Right now I have been digging through the forums trying to make some decisions as to how I want to go about modding the truck. I can't decide between a OME 614 lift with CB Shackles, or a Zone 5 suspension, then I see how cheap a 3/1 can be (even through I know I would probably end up regretting it later) and I have to go back to the drawing board. Honestly I am trying to put in a Line-X, Rims, Wheels and a Lift for 3,000 and I don't think I'll be able to swing it.

Thanks Tony! I might take a look at your site. I'll be wanting some Tow Mirrors eventually.

Bryce, shoot me a PM if your in my neck of the woods. I got plenty of cold beer. How do you like your 3/1?
