I am not really sure this is a build per say.. more so just taking a stock 09 tundra and doing some stuff to it..

I actually ended up buying this a few months ago now but really haven't spent too much time with it other than keeping it clean and just daily driving the truck..

i have a few short term goals for the truck..
-its gotta be able to tow my cruiser and anything else i put behind it with some comfort.. the truck is rated to two 10100 pounds... I am not towing anything close to that but i will be in that 8000 pound range with the cruiser and trailer..

its getting some upgrades...
- about a month ago i got a new car starter/alarm installed... i have never had a car starter ever so this has been quite a treat.. i almost dont know why i never got one earlier..
-its getting a stereo upgrade.. when i bought my ford f150 it came with a pretty nice clarion double din deck with a big screen.. I took that out of the ford and its going into the tundra..
- it also got a set of weathertech floormats for both front and rear.. I love these and they really keep the floor very clean..
-backup cameras.. I just got my order from china a few weeks ago.. I will be doing front and rear cameras for the truck.. more on this later..
-tekonsha brake controller.. only the best for towing..
-firestone airbag kit

I will be adding to this list as time goes on.. I eventually want to be able to stick my tent on the truck as well as have a truck cap too.. i need a truck cap..

the truck came with a gooseneck hitch in the box.. i am not too thrilled out the hole in the center of the box where the hitch stuck through but its coming out.. the new firestone airbags and brackets want to share the same space as the hitch so its time to do some work..

here is the airbag kit on youtube..

If I was planning on towing more often the airbags would be handy! Nice color choice!
