  1. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Upgraded. After 8 years it's time to say goodbye to my beloved 03. It's been the best truck I've ever owned and will serve the next owner for many more good years to come. Last Friday a buddy who works at the local Toyota dealer texted me pics of an 06 DC he just took in on trade, 121k miles...
  2. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Well after 8 years my headers are rusting out, there's holes near the collectors between the tubes that I can't weld up so this weekend I cut them all out and installed a factory system with a Magnaflow muffler that I had. Got all the parts from Rockauto for under $500 and that's with new cats...

    Installed front and rear Hellwig sway bars and replaced the left front cv axle Saturday. I welded the rear sway bar brackets to the rear end so they wouldn't move. Handling and ride is so much better now. Next weekend the headers are coming off and going back to stock exhaust, after 7-8 years...

    A customer of mine sold me this 2000 Tundra SR5 4x4 4.7l last winter for $1000. It came from South Carolina and only has 85k original miles, just had the timing belt done, all new Bilstien shocks, tranny serviced, brand new summer and winter tires on their own rims, and a $1200 aluminum sliding...
  6. Which brake pads for quicker stop

    1Gen-Tundra
    Go with ceramics. I like Wagner Thermoquiets, good bite, quiet, no dust, and I use Wagner rotors as well. My truck stops great, it does help to keep your rears adjusted too.
  7. What did you do with your bed rust??

    1Gen-Tundra
    I bought a new bed, my outside panels were good but it was rusting through from the bottom into the bed. Got a smokin deal on a completely rust free bed from Oregon for $250 plus $350 shipping. This thing is so clean the underside looks brand new, even the original bed bolts look new without a...

  9. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Hey guys it's been awhile, still have my Tundra and there's not another truck I'd rather have. Since I plan to keep it a long time I put some effort into cleaning up the frame, suspension, rockers, and the underside of the box. Toyota's CRC treatment didn't last a year so I chipped, scraped...
  10. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    My truck started running rough and threw a cel, forget the code number but it was the MAF sensor. Cleaned it first but no dice, installed a new one and it's running great again.

  12. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Advertised range is 1/2 mile, but I've yet to test it very far. The farthest was maybe 100 yards from inside a building and it started right up. Nice thing is it's a two way so I can look at the screen on the fob and see if it started.

    Saw that lol, thanks. Installed a Bullydog Deluxe 200 remote start today. Been looking at remote starts lately and Bullydog was the only company with instructions, videos, wiring diagrams and a support line. Bought one on Amazon for $49. Took me 4 hours to install it but I wasted an hour...
  14. Do I need a new engine?

    1Gen-Tundra
    His drain oil was clean, just condensation in the valve covers. Pretty common. Take it for a good run once in awhile if you're only doing short trips.
  15. Do I need a new engine?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Mine has looked similar from short trips back and forth to work. If the drain oil was clean you should be fine.

    1Gen-Tundra
    Drove it in the snow, good thing I put my winter tires on Saturday. We got 42" in 48 hours! Instant winter. Pics are just the snow after the first 6 hours that I pushed after work. Unreal.
  17. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    That is pretty freekin sweet! I'll probably never even see one in person where I live. We do have a couple Lambos in the area and I have a buddy with a Porsche GT3. He's let me flog that thing on many occasions, it is a race car with a plate. I won't tell how fast I've had it lol. Sadly my...
  18. What did you do to your 1st gen today?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Add me to the list. I've had Terra grapplers for a couple years now and I hate them! Can't wait to wear them out which won't be long at the rate they wear. They're very heavy tires, ride like chit and hurt mpg's. I just put my winter tires on this weekend and they are so much better, and...
  19. Tips for getting manifolds off?

    Engine, Intake, Exhaust, Induction
    Do it from below. Pull the wheels, the inner fender rubber pieces, support the motor with a floor jack and block of wood and pull the motor mounts. Heat and an impact wrench works best to remove the nuts. It's not a fun nor easy job.
  20. Extremely high-pitched whistling sound inside the cab

    1Gen-Brakes
    Disconnect the vacuum line from the booster, plug it, and see if the noise goes away.
