Sweet truck: I just love this look! You've really inspired in me some potentially expensive creative juices with you mods!

Haven't quite settled yet, I'm looking at Flowmaster, Magnaflow and MBRP. Trying to be as thorough in my research as possible cos once I get it and ship it all the way out here, I'm stuck with it for life, so I better love it!

I wouldn't worry about the cold air intake. It is a waste of money on these trucks because their air intake is already free flowing. If you are dead set on doing something to the intake, look up the gotts mod. It will cost you $15 bucks and have the same affect as a $300 dollar air raid or K&N

I had my truck dynoed today to get some numbers on my roush charged FX2. Since roush tuners suck and leave the stock speed limiter I could only do 2nd gear pulls because 3rd was at 95mph to quickly. So the numbers ended up being 310 hp and 373leave torque. That's with stock everything except magnaflow exhaust. Im having it tuned in 2 weeks when my tuner has time. The numbers suck but I think they will be alot better with a tune.

Interesting observation DieselBeast, thank you for that, I'll look into it!

Got my Truck!

So I finally drove my truck out the port yesterday, first time I actually saw it for real. Was an emotional time, I just love it so much; unlike many Russian mail order brides, she looked so much better 'in person' than in the photos! Now to start implementing those mods!

The truck looks good. Can't wait to see the rest of the changes you have planned. Did you need to do any major mods to make it legal in Africa?

Thanks Dano. Naaah, the truck is legal as shipped, and my mods won't contravene any laws either. F150s aren't that common they turn more than a few heads, but there's always been a select few around. I rode past a 2011 Raptor the other day, and I've seen a few 2010/11/12 Lariats and FX4s around. In this class of truck though the Tundra is by far the more common sight, so I'm quite happy with mine as is.

I've been able to link images from photobucket just fine the last time I did it. Now I keep getting an 'oops, image was linked incorrectly' icon when my pix should be. Does photobucket have some kind of time limit on linking free uploaded images? Can't seem to find where it says so on their site...

Oh. Photobucket looks just fine today. Problem must've been my internet connection last night. Sorry about the multiple posts of essentially the same thing!

Hey that is the hood that Ive been looking for for a while. What is it called and where could I find it?

I owned a Tundra for approximately 3 weeks. IMHO its a horrible truck. Ford F150>Toyota Tundra by far.

Thanks metalliq. It's funny that I haven't been on the site in a while and I know this thread for at least a year, and I come across a pic of my truck someone has posted. I appreciate the compliment and glad you like the look of it, I have found it's about 50/50 for people who like /dislike the look. You mention expensive juices, most of what I've done to my truck is rather cheap (I really hate to use that word) mods, a lot of what I wanted to get for it, is or was not available for it, like the wheels, which are painted now. I painted the grill, as well as the head lights and tail lights, money is and has been extremely tight for me. I have been reading along here and may I suggest that you go with a Magnaflow true duel exhaust? I think you'll be very happy with that set up, at least I am. I had a flowcrapper cat back and it left a lot to be desired. Will be looking forward to see what you do to your ride. Well here's a more updated pic of my truck w/ the painted wheels and much larger tires, you really need to hit the bar to enlarge the photo to appreciate it, which by the way is a nice feature they've added to the site instead of the already ginormous photos:

Oh and if anyone cares, it just turned over the big 200,000 mile marker a couple of weeks ago!!
