I bought the truck in February with 100k miles on it. It's a 5.7L 4WD with Rock Warrior Trim.
TRD 17" Wheels.
It came debadged with an ARE shell.

After overlanding last year in a Honda Pilot (someone hit it and totaled it), I finally settled on a Tundra to continue my journey.
I quit my desk job in late 2019 and haven't settled down since.

I haven't actually installed anything yet on the truck but since I've just ordered a ton of upgrades I figured I would start the thread now and add posts as I install all my upgrades.

So today I finally installed my Overland Vehicle Systems Nomadic 270 awning! I mounted it to Yakima jetstream bars. So far I am very pleased with this awning. It provides a ton of shade and covers both doors on the driver side while fully covering the back tailgate area. It feels very sturdy and well made. 20210901_143333.jpg20210901_142600.jpg20210901_141204.jpg20210901_143333.jpg20210901_142600.jpg

I also installed an ARB single onboard air compressor. I havent wired it up yet.
This install was hard! The custom mount that was meant to fit pretty seamlessly required new bolts and spacers, and a ton of elbow grease and time. Finally though all bolts are secured, the compressor is snug tight to the custom bracket which is nice and tight in my engine compartment.

Next up is a dual battery install which will require some drilling. Then I can wire my air compressor to the aux battery.

Hey we have the same rig. Love it! Can’t wait to see how your compressor works! Been looking into those too

Yeah these definitely are getting added to the long list of upgrades, how do you like them?
I like them as much as I can so far! Its one of those upgrades that is mostly out of sight and out of mind. I hope i never really need them but at the same time they will likely come in handy at some point on a rough rocky road. Ive definitely already scraped a little bit on some roads in Colorado so Im sure they will be useful one day!

They do seem really well made and the black powdercoat goes well with my truck.

I also installed some aftermarket fog lights. Diode Dynamics SS3 Pros in amber. Tough to take a photo with them on at night.20210902_215208.jpg20210902_215239.jpg

I also upgraded my interior map lights and dome lights with Diode Dynamics LEDS. Also my tail lights and sidemarkers. The LEDS consume less energy which will reduce the power draw on my battery. In addition of course they put out a lot more light. Also I think these increase my safety while driving, especially at night. Im working on upgrading the turn signals to LEDs as well. The front turn signal lights I bought also function as a daytime running light.

Heres a before of the map light:
