    2005 Tundra novice build - "The Rez"

    I ran a couple of those cheap cameras for a while. They do the job decently enough. I put some glue in the back though, where the wire exits. I'd recommend a set of Energy Suspension bushings when doing the rack. My NAPA one is starting to leak after three years and the bushings are shot.

    I like that look. I'm still trying to decide between four round lights or a couple light bars. I need to get them out for a test and see what works best. What bolts did you use to fasten the light to the t-slot?

    Yeah, I agree with you on that. A larger piece of plate welded under each would be nice.

    I picked up these old home made jack stands a while back and just finished cleaning them up. Gave them several coats of safety yellow. They seem pretty stout. Probably better than anything I'd get from Harbor Freight.

    Anyone know anything about this steering wheel? I've had it laying around in the garage for some five years. It was kind of a poor fit on my 02 Tundra. The inner spokes didn't line up well to shape of the airbag cover. I haven't been able to identify if this was put together poorly or the...

    "16 ubolt nuts need to be torqued to 480 ft lb. 20 wheel lugs to 450 ft lb etc. " My back cringes at the thought of this.. :unsure:

    Can't believe I haven't seen this thread.. Interested to see where this one goes.

    That’s interesting. I wouldn’t have expected it. I’m told it happens due to variations in both the vehicle and when welded in the jig. I haven’t felt confident about going with a uniball myself, but I kind of liked the ball joint use in these. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    My upper balljoints were shot, so I decided to toss in the "Freedom Offroad" UCA's I picked up earlier this year. There's a thread about them over on T4R that's nearing 60 pages.. https://www.toyota-4runner.org/4th-gen-t4rs/182584-ebay-uniball-control-arms.html I didn't really see anything...

    Thanks. I haven't put the wheels on yet, but I'll keep that in mind.

    Haha. Well, it was really handy with removing my ball joints the other day.

    If you’re looking for a good “cheater bar” I picked up a spare Hi-Lift handle here for $11 bucks. Works great. https://www.ebay.com/itm/183773492682 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Looking at the wheels, I've been thinking of painting them a "cement gray" type color. Also, I need replacements for the rear wheel flare trim that seals against the body. Local dealer wanted $36 each. Not sure if there's an aftermarket one that's worked for others. Otherwise, I'll order OEM.

    Trailscape's 06 Tundra

    I'm thinking I'm going to have to pick up some Spidertrax because I'm kind of in the same boat. I can't justify the cost of aftermarket wheels when so there's so many nice looking OEM wheels people are trying to unload. I just redid my grill and bug guard with those paints. I'd previously just...

    I found this in a search. Pretty close to how mine would look. Still wondering how the backspacing will look. I don't think there will be much difference.

    These paints work really well. Spraymax puts down one nice clearcoat.

    Trailscape's 06 Tundra

    Yeah, I'm leaning toward that. I was looking into powdercoating, but I'm not sure it's really worth it. It'll be a hell of a lot easier to make any changes before mounting them though.

    Look what I found.. So, now I'm trying to decide.. Stock or paint 'em?

    Between the roof rack and the new skidplate, I do love the occasion of adding some functional art to the truck.

    SOLD: MorningStar SunSaver MPPT 15 with Remote Monitor, Temp Sensor, and USB programmer

    That's a good price for everything included. I really like the Morningstar controllers I've used. Just curious, what was the size of the solar panels used with this? I think this one was limited to 200w or less?
