Sarah's '19 Tundra TRD 4X4 Limited "Large Marge"

Recommended Posts

Sarah made some curtains for the inside of the shell to help keep the light out when sleeping in the back, Velcro strips hold them in place.  She also bought some bins that fit perfectly under the bed frame, 1 long and 2 short.

Sarah made her own mattress, bottom layer of 2" thick high density foam and top layer of 3" memory foam. She then wrapped it with a plastic tarp like material to somewhat "weather proof" and protect the foam layers.  The bed of her truck is pretty much complete for now, ready for some overlanding.  She's very happy with her hard work and I'm impressed! 😎

New and bad ass shocks for Sarah's rig were delivered today.  These things are going to be AWESOME!  No more worries about blowing out the OEM front shocks anymore! 😎

 

These are Rough Country Vertex adjustable coilovers with 8 stage adjustable damping on the reservoirs.  They're made for Tundra's with a 5.5"-6.5" lift and come with a 3 year warranty.

This morning Sarah and I got out in the garage and installed her new Tyger Auto rock rails/side steps.  Passenger side fought me a little, divers side was easier, all in all they look great and are much better than those OEM nerf bars.

Sarah dropped her Tundra off at Westcott Designs this morning to have some work done.  They replaced the damaged/bent Pro Comp lower control arm bracket with a new one, installed the new Rough Country Vertex coilovers, did a body notch so her tires won't rub and front end alignment.  Now her off road beast is ready to start hitting some trails! 😎

Turning a useless space into a useful space!! The Rago Fabrication modular dash plate was a perfect fit! 

Many different ways to mount the necessities and easy to change it up!  Ready for the GMRS and phone RAM mount!

Additionally, it has 2 usb ports that always have power, as no other ports have power when the truck is off! Great little addition that serves purpose! 

Thank you @Trail Toy for the handiwork and electrical! I did not provide much assistance in this install lol.

 @Trail Toy and I spent the afternoon a couple days ago installing about 70lbs of 1/8" steel plates from Valhalla's Shield. 

 

A lifted truck seems to lose options in mods...with the different lift options and differences in even bracket lifts it makes it hard for fabricators to make a product without undue financial constraint. This is what I have come to learn in my mission to find catalytic converter plates for my Tundra.  "Little Sister" the 2wd Tundra was easy-peasy to find plates and even had them installed with the price locally. 

 

With these, this is the only manufacturer (which is a guy that started making these in his garage after he was laid off due to the pandemic about a year ago) that makes such a system for a truck with a 6inch Pro Comp lift. These are "version 3" which shows the evolution in such a short period of time (approx 1-year) of his product.  Very cool to see his journey (which is in a huge thread on the Tundra.com forums), and very happy to support his business.  

 

These were ordered in Sept and took almost exactly 3-months to arrive. Now I can drive Large Marge anywhere and not be nauseated when I go to start her, wondering if someone crawled under there to steal her 4 converters. 

 

This was definitely a #teamworkmakesthedreamwork situation, and thank goodness I am short as I can practically sit criss-cross applesauce underneath the truck when it is up on the ramps lol
