Pyro's Tundra - DORP MT

Post by PyroZuki » Tue Nov 22, 2011 3:35 pm

So, on 11-11-11 I became the proud owner of a 2008 Toyota Tundra, SR5, TRD Off Road package, Sport Edition double cab 5.7L!!!
The truck has 77K miles and a 2" levelin kit in the front when I bought it.

My plans for the truck are as follows,

Front and rear bumpers,
Upgraded lights with black head light mod, Done
Intake and exhaust,
Black wheels, - Done
Can-Back canopy,
Spray on bed liner,
Upgraded sound system

And that will probably be it...

The tuck's main purpose is to tow my Runner to and from the trails, so I will not be liftin this rig, nor will I be installin over sized tires. Since all of my rigs are named (personalized plates), I had to name this beast.

My 86 Sami is PYROZUK
My 86 Runner is FUN TOY
Now my Tundra is DORP MT


This won't be a fast project by any means, but slowly things will start to come together. Here are a few pictures of the rig as I got it.

The damage is so minute, I doubt it will even show up in a picture.
The carnage Losi is referrin to is my front bumper. Two days after gettin the truck, I hit a whitetail doe at 30mph with the corner of my bumper.

Hey Pyro.... Congats on the new truck dude... Its cool to drive somethin nice and new.... So all you need now is a cool trailer? I sure like DZ trailer, something like that is all you would ever need. Coming out for christmas? If so come by and we'll throw some perma plate auto paint sealant on her... If you have that already handled we'll just party.... Nice truck bro... :D

Nice rig the race'n strips add at least 20 ponys! I'm curious tho how is the gas tank clearance? I am asking b/c I was looking at a long box '07 tundra 5.7L and it was nearly as low as the rear axle w/ a plastic skid plate...

Thanks.

If I remember, I'll measure that clearance tomorrow.

I sprayed my SR5, TRD edition rims with black PlastiDip last nite. A great look, in my opinion!

Next, I'll PlastiDip the bumpers and badges. I'll also get around to installin that 2010+ grille and surround and also replace the TRD Off Road stickers with Black and silver ones.

Well, I finally got around to installin my 2010+ grille! :yahoo:

Unfortunately, the grille surround is gloss black. I really like the look of the 2010+ grille, over the 2007-2009 grille, but the black grille doesn't match anything on my truck (besides the wheels). I'm goin to do the black headlight mod this Saturday, that will help. As soon as I find the time, I'll paint the bumpers black and the grille surround matte black (to match the grille insert).
