    Default Cletus' 2002 Tundra AC Build

    Bought my 2002 Tundra Access Cab TRD 4.7l with 157000 km back in April 2010. It came with flowmaster exhaust and a K&N cold air intake. Tires were 265/70/16 Dayton Timberland AT's. Here's what it looked like when I got it

    Kept it stock for the first year in which time I did my first off-roading in a truck (had Dirtbiked and quaded quite a bit before)

    The next spring I installed 5100's all around with fronts set at top notch. Rear I added a Procomp add a leaf. Bought new rims and tires: 17" black aluminum with 285/70/17 Procomp Xtreme MT's

    Next I upgraded the stereo system. Put in Pioneer 6.5" 2 way speakers front and rear. Alpine deck, 2 Alpine R8's in a Q-logic box with a 1000w kicker amp behind the back seat.

    Next I picked up a Warn M8000 when the VR8000 was just coming out at the VR price because the shop thought the M was being replaced by the VR. Good for me anyways. Then I bought warn hitch mount and a Hidden front hitch.

    I only used the winch from the receiver mount once but that was enough to make it worth every penny.

    Next I wanted more light. I ordered 1 set of 170 and 1 set of 240 Blitz HID's from Lightforce along with a 270 amp alternator from Nations. Also added another Optima battery. I temporarily mounted the lights to the winch receiver. I wasn't great at taking many pictures. I had to slightly move the power steering reservoir slightly to build a battery tray over the passenger fender. Hooked all accessories to a 7 circuit Painless fuse box and 3 relay bank. Batteries separated by a 200 amp heavy duty solenoid with a SPDT switch.

    That winter my cousin came across Addicted Offroads site. After a short time I ordered a front bumper and sliders (which Took me years to finally instal) my cousin ordered a front for his Tacoma and 2 friends ordered front and rears for their 3rd gen 4Runners. So Scott from AO was coming to the border to sell a truck so he brought the bumpers with him and left them overnight in Montana for me to pick up.

    I installed the bumper with the 240's and winch after painting the newly exposed areas with TremcladImageUploadedByTapatalk1463761755.130496.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1463761821.594953.jpg
    Hadn't bought my house yet so I had to go to a few buddy's to get everything welded but finally got my 170's installed as well.

    Next I was sick of worrying about the UBJ which was banging on full droop so I had a set of Total Chaos UCA's installed.

    That was the end of mods until I bought my house and had a garage to work in (after finishing the inside)ImageUploadedByTapatalk1463760852.440965.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1463760893.511454.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1463760932.569354.jpg
    That winter I plasti-dipped my mirrors, badging, and grill. Also removed all the carpet and sprayed rocker guard on the entire floor for easy clean up.

    From time and getting beat up 4x4ing the flowmaster exhaust broke/fell off. After driving straight piped for almost a year I welded in a Magnaflow straight through muffler with side exit before the rear wheel. I had a bezel to move it up through the box side out of the way of the sliders later but this helped to keep me sane from the noise lol.

    After a few months like this I finally cut the hole for the exhaust and installed the bezel.

    Got the exhaust moved into the bezel. Painted the tip with Duplicolor High heat low gloss black and plastidiped the bezel.

    During the same time as the exhaust changes I finally built the standoffs for the sliders and welded them to the frame.

    I sold my Procomp MT's on the rims to one of my cousins. I bought new 285/75R16 BFGoodrich Mudterrain KM2's on Procomp Rock Crawler steels. Winter 13/14 I added a Cobra 19DX CB radio with a 3' screw to tune Firestick antenna.

    A new Alpine deck with better Bluetooth connectivity. Updated my switch panel and cleaned up the wiring.

    Next I built a rear bumper based on Sean's build. After getting it basically done I realized it wasn't exactly what I wanted but painted it and installed it as it was still way better than the stock one ImageUploadedByTapatalk1463770257.629707.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1463770300.464867.jpg
    After spilling gas all over on one trip out I decided to build little holders out of 1" tubing

    Also built a flip down hitch mount tire carrier for a full size spare
