Hey everyone. I have been doing tons of reasearch and Shawn was excellent help. He was always willing to help me out and to him I give big thanks!!!!

I am currently modding my 08. Doing stage 2 pro comp..Buswacker flares"linex'd"....Expedition One front bumper... Bf Goodrich KM2 37x12.5x20...RBP 93r wheels...Amp reasearch steps... And Light Force and Hella lighting.
I am basing it off of the Expedition One Tundra at SEMA.
My kids didn't need to go to college anyway!!

Ya, it's gonna big pretty penny. I have the fender flares on and the bumper and steps should be here tomorrow or Tuesday. It's a double cab and "HOPE"it turns out to look ok.
The people at Expedition One ( bumper) are great people as well. I ordered the bumper Thursday and it will be here tomorrow. It will be hard to beat Shawns truck as he has a really cool setup. 4wheel parts will install the lift and I will do the rest. I was going to do the lift but decided to let them do it. The lights I had left over from a H3 I had.
The way I look at it is you only go around once and my kids are grown and out of the house so what the heck.

Well; all i have to say is we'll see how this thing goes .
Your right Gabe thats the exact sound I heard when my wallet shut.... BUUUUH BANG!!!!! ....and the sound I heard when my wife found out. Actually she has been very good support.

Oh, two things I forgot. I have a Volant intake and already did the body mount chop ahead of time to fit the 37's.
Shawn is right,I literally spent HOURS doing research on stuff. It was fun and a pain at the same time.

And thanks for the warm welcome from everyone.
I hope no one took offense. It's just a darn truck and I'm a little excited to see how this turns out. After posting I thought it sounded like I was bragging or something and in NO Way am I like that. From what it looks, you guys have some pretty nice trucks! It's not the truck that makes it; it's being able to share the experience with others.
Again thanks everyone!!

well we all take pride in our trucks, in no way did I think your bragging and I doubt anybody else did. We all have different budgets and we're here just to help each other get ideas for our truck.

Ya, I need all the help i can get . I'll be 52 this year and i may as well have a little fun while i can.

Shawn knows this; the biggest problem i had was trying to get the proper backspacing and offset on the wheels. ya know if you see someones truck and want to get an idea how to set yours up it would be nice to know this.
Mabe you want that look but different "style" rims etc. It is crucial, trust me. It was like it was a secret or no one knew and maybe some didn't want you to know? Anyway, I have a 5 inch backspace on mine and they say; RBP, that should take my tires to the edge of my flares and they offer a 4.5 and that woud make them stick out too far. For those that know or want to, this is valuable info.

And thanks for the comment Danial, I appreciate it! Nice truck by the way! Don't know what the rear seat mod is but i'll do some more research.

Well, I am customizin now...but I poured thousands into my last truck and I think I am going a little more conservative this time...thinking about how I plan to use the truck and such.
Treadman, Yeah I got 22 yrs. , lol I know it will be here some time next week...Good God time flies once you get out of school, and get married, and have kids, and get a career, and buy a house, and build a house, and etc. (Not in any perticular order)

Been there..done that. This year was a bad year for me.
I lost several friends this past year due to illness etc. Made me think. Kinda a bucket list if you will. I wasn't going to do anything but drive it. Stock. Then got to thinkin what the heck. I was going to go all out 12" lift etc but like you thought i better go conservative as well.
