  • I hear you...I will be extremely careful in deciding to let CT touch the truck....they do have one mechanic here who is very good and I would trust. They did a Benz for me a couple of years ago and it worked out okay. Anyway, thanks for the "heads up." I will source a Toyota dealer to see what they can do.

    I had the install done at CT in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. I did not go for the $25 kit and went with a kit manufactured by Standard Auto Parts (DRL-1). Check out the Tundra Solutions Forum(DRL's Issue Thread)posted by me. Installed in March/07 by CT electrical tech(his 1rst time), the unit was not available at CT but was picked up at a local auto parts supplier in PA. Cost about $140 for parts and install.
    I received detailed instructions from Standard Auto website as to install specific to the Toy Tundra(2005). To date unit works well with all the features of OEM. Good luck. If u need more info email.
  • Teach45: Thanks for the info....Our local NAPA has DRL Kit from Echlin (They told me Echlin and Standard are subsidiarly companies). I will let you know how I make out. Thanks again.

    Or, install the Aries Deluxe 4" oval tubes. They look great and the wife isn't complaining anymore (at least about getting in the truck :) ).

    Any recommendation on the type/make and where to buy is greatly appreciated.
  • I have a topper on my Tundra but when I drove a Dodge I used the Truxedo low profile tonneau cover - it worked great. Access tonneau covers are great also - there are the cover that Truxedo copied.

    Sure thanks
  • I've got four kids and therefore need seating for six. Our other car can seat us just fine, but in case that car is in the shop we need to be able to fit all of us in the Tundra (if we go through with purchasing a Tundra). I therefore need the bench front seat. I was told they can turn the cloth seats into leather using an after factory company to do the work. But in looking over the options it appears there are several I can't get with the bench front seat. So I'm wondering if there is any way to get a Limited model and turn the front bucket seats into a bench seat.

    Thanks,
    Nick
  • Can someone tell me the advantages/disadvantages between the 18" and 20" wheels? Just wondering if upgrading to the 20" wheels is something I would want to do.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    The differance is $$$$ lots of $$$$ unless you are trying to impress with bling bling bling don't bother with 20's. 18ings will do the trick.
  • no, your either gonna have to wait it out, or get a custom kit made. i just got mine done by hostile costoms in berneville pa. they did a great job !

    I recently purchased a 08 Tundra CrewMax. For the most part a base model because I needed the bench front seat. I'm wondering if there is a way for me to upgrade the side view mirrors to power collapsible ones?

    Thanks,
    Nick
  • I just bought a 08 Tundra double cab, right now i'm getting about 14-15 mpg. How much will the dual exhaust help in power and mpg? Mine is the two wheel drive with the TRD, with the 20'' wheels. Love the truck.

    I really like the Tundra but today noticed what might be a show stopper. During the winter here in the mountains I sometimes need to use tire chains. However After looking at the front and rear wheels and suspension there is so little clearance I doubt that I'll be able to get a set on the tires. Has anyone got a solution to this problem??

  • I'm planning on purchasing in-channel window vents for my 2008 Tundra. Has anyone had experience with these? I don't want to have a problem with wind noise when the window is closed or have the window back itself down as a safety feature if the vent gets in the way.

    What can I do to soften the suspension on my truck. It bounces so bad on the frwy, that my glasses fly off and anyone else riding with me can't even talk clearly. Please don't say to put 500 lbs of weight in the bed. Also when I slam on the brakes, the whole vehicle shutters like it's coming apart. I was wondering if I can remove the helper leaf on the rear suspension without causing any problems.

    I'd like to rig my back up camera (nav. system version) to be able to use it in even in forward gear. There are many situations where this would be handy. I understand Toyota probably thought there may be some safety issues and did not want us to enable it that way. Does anyone know if it can be wired (with a switch) off of the back up light switch or something?
  • I have a 2008 Tundra and have the flat black that fit nicely against the cab. They are great and easy since the truck to up high. The tubular ones I have had in the past are harder to get your footing one and can become slippery when it rains. Mine came from the dealer but any after market would do. I have used mywooddash.com, they sell lots of aftermarket stuff besides dash kits and they have great prices. Hope this helps.
  • I have a 08 Tundra Crewmax and it came with the temperature on the dash but the rearview mirror offers a compass and it migh also offer a temp ad on. It can be purchased aftermarket and from what I understand it is not an easy install but I could be wrong. Try looking up tundra 05 rearview mirror on google and you will probably find what you are looking for .Hope this helps.
  • I have had them in different trucks and they have always been 3m stick onand you just have to be real careful to alighn perfectly, I have not experienced a drill type system. The 3m ones stay on as I drive at high speeds 70 to 85 on freeway. Hope this helps
  • Hey, I am a girl and own a 2008 Tundra crewmax. BIG. I have running boards on the side and they work just fine with me getting in and out. I am 5'6 so I don't know about shorter girls but I think running boards would help and there are many to choose from to make you truck still look beaffy. My truck looks totally beaffy. Hope this helps
  • I have a 08 Tundra Crewmax loaded. I just ordered the mangaflo dual side exhauset and spoke with several performance mufflers parts places to see if this will give me more hp and gasmileage. They saig 10 to 15 % more hp and more gas mileage. I also put on the air coolor air filter kit. I will let you know how it works out, bit everyone I spoke to say they do see a increase in performance ahd hp and mpg.
    hope this helps
  • I have a 08 Tundra Crewmax with Navigation but once moving it will not let me change or even enter the destination. Is there anyway around this. Its kinda of a hassel because I have to stop to make my changes. Any help would help.
