View Full Version : New Tow Rig

06-10-2012, 09:16 PM
SO I spent the better half of friday freaking out because I sold the ridgeline and didn't have a replacement. Brostock is only a week away and I really didn't want to borrow a truck. So my wife was searching the internet and found my new truck. 2010 rock warrior tundra. I feel like it was a good deal for both parties.
Looks like we will be traveling in style to Brostock now.

Nice ride, now get a 3/1 level kit and you'll be looking even better!

Nice looking rig. Let us know the gas mileage pulling the boat. I'm curious.

Nice tundra congrats! I have an 08 with bilstein 5100s, great tow rig. Not so great on gas mileage though.

Could one of you post up said 5100 leveling pic, I am interested.

Going to look sharp heading down the road.

Here is a pic of mine. It has the boat hooked up. The Bilstein shocks on the front are on the middle setting, about 1.7" lift per Bilstein. Sits pretty level with the tongue weight. Just the right amount of rake when empty.

I just put the rough country leveling kit on my 2011 silver ado friday. Much improved!

Nice truck!

Nice ride! My 2002 Tundra has been a great truck... unfortunately it spent 4 years in conctruction after I was laid off in 2003 until I got back into IT in 2006. It's had a hard life but it's been a good truck. A bit beaten and worn but still willing to back my boat up my monster steep driveway at the end of the day... A new truck was going to be my next vehicle purchase until the bonehead wiped out my car last week... Grrrr... Anyway, great ride and looks killer with the boat!

Nice looking truck, will be a nice upgrade over the Ridgeline for towing

Good looking truck, I have a TRD as well, or as my kid calls it a "turd" :) Moombas look great behing them! Nice choice!

Great looking truck! My buddy has a crew tundra with leveling kit and tow bags installed. Pulls his 31ft camper no problem.

You'll enjoy that much more than the Honda. Mine tows my LS with no problem. Have towed one way over six hours before and did a great job. Will suck the gas though. :(

That's where I have mine set to also, totally agree with you.

http://img.tapatalk.com/aefc422e-fec4-d59c.jpg mine, not a great picture so I'll try and snap another later. This was right after install.

Also to the OP and anyone else looking for a tonneau, check out The Extang Trifecta. Awesome top for your bed and is super easy to install and remove if need be all while keeping items in your bed dry and safe since our truck has a locking tailgate.

Evoimport, you should go to tundra solutions.com and look around there, also the black headlight mod would look great on that white truck. YouTube has good how tos.

Uh, I think you're supposed to turn it around to hook it up.

I think he going to put a Hitch on the front like Grandpas Do......LOL
