Looong time lurker (joined 2012) first time thread starter.

Picked up a CPO '17 Wednesday when I traded my decked out but I was bored of it 2010 CrewMax Tundra. Holy polar opposite Batman!


I have already ordered a bunch of parts and am meeting a member to get a Nameless header later today.

Thanks for a stress-free transaction @Louder, great meeting you.

First road trip, 67 miles each way mostly freeway netted me this:

Thanks!

Fun drive home, had just enough power to keep a Raptor behind me. Do the '17s have more power stock? It's not the dog (when the revs are kept up) I have heard it would be.

5hp more. Negligible, but that paired with the shorter gearing helps a little bit with acceleration.

Can you recommend a shop in the valley that knows these cars & won't take advantage?

I came from Tundras.com, there was an AZ marketplace thread I looked but didn't see one here.

Here's the Tundra I traded in for the 86.

EDIT.

I'm an idiot, found the regional area.

:P

Since June I have done a bunch.

The catback came last week, I ordered the over/frontpipe from Nameless and am waiting for the 6-8 week build.

I also got Whiteline endlinks & Blox front & rear sways.

There is a large rock and plastic weed barrier that has needed to be fixed for far too long. No rats.

It took some doing but I found a seller in Malaysia that was willing to ship to the US. Apparently we have ripped most of the web sellers down under off.

You can find them on eBay, just search the model number. I have the 918ws and if its hot out it may have to cool off before turning on.
