So I did a thing.
needs a little bit of work such as; remove the lift, new front tires (probably going to look for all new OEM replacement wheels and tires), fix the fuel gauge, fix drivers side windows.

Now I gotta decide if I’m going to keep or sell the tundra.

My buddy has one with over 250k miles and still drives like new. You will be very happy with that transmission when you tow

It’ll be clean back to stock.

level, air bags, 35’s *stock
Gonna go with skinny 33’s instead of 35’s. Might go with some sort of an all terrain but I’ll likely stick with a decent truck tire.
Lift more, methods, metal mullisha swag and monsters…
That’s how I already feel driving it lol

Unfortunately not, it’s 2wd. It’s a great truck for most of the things I need a truck for in daily life. Drives nice and comfortable unlike heavier duty trucks.

That’s good to hear. With the amount I plan to drive it, I don’t think I’ll break 250k miles any time soon. It’s really nice having the better trans. It didn’t get hot going up the grades or against head winds. The long wheelbase makes highway towing so much more comfortable at speeds and with winds.

Speaking of tires. Anybody have any long term experience with the pro comp all terrains? They’re 310 a piece for 37’s. I wanna do 37’s on my work truck cause 35’s are tiny on these dang aluminum f250’s. My Cooper at3 xlt’s are nearing the end, and they’ve been fantastic but I don’t wanna pay $400 a tire for 37’s

Getting the new tow rig all dialed in for future trips.
Ordered some air bags, tow mirrors, ham radio, head unit, and some U bolts to remove the lift.
I need to find some time to make the drive to LA for some OEM alloy wheels I found so I can order some new tires. Tire sizes are pretty limited once you get to 33’s unless you want a mud terrain or all terrain tire.

Get a decent all terrain tire considering your 33s. I had falken wildpeak all terrains on my last truck and had no complaints when looking at them on a tow rig/all terrian. Straight street tires blow in the smallest amount of sand.

Last time I was in this thread I was pretty set on a new f250. Well truck market went crazy. I got an insane deal for my Ram 1500 single cab and sold it and picked up a Ram 2500 6.7 diesel. Have just over 6k miles since may now with a trailer hooked to it for half of those miles. No complaints. Things a beast and I’ll never go back to a gas truck for towing.

I’ve leveled it and added fog lights and a valence delete. Next thing is wheels and tires. Probably 35s on some machines wheels to match the Tacoma.

You are probably right. I'll just stick with some AT's. My brother and a few friends recommended the wildpeaks. I'll see if I can find those.
