  1. 2014+ Lowering / Drop Kits

    Yea, it is a crew. I am not really worried about it being perfectly level, but I think the 1" or so will help.. at least in my head it will. It will be going from a 2.5" level to stock front and rear block removal. Had the same setup when I bought the truck, but it was with 20s. Have 18s now (just switched the tires to a 32" in anticipation of dropping back to stock). Current set up (sans tires): Front end is color matched for the most part, but got a new bumper and will be painting it white in the coming week. Rear too. Pulling the running boards when I drop back down to stock. Might go back to 20s in the future, but I love the ride of 18s. What it looked like before I started color matching/switched wheels: Going for this look without the wheels for time being:
  2. 2014+ Lowering / Drop Kits

    Currently have a leveling kit on my 15. It is a 2wd, and I am thinking about dropping the front back down to stock and pulling the blocks. I guess that would consider me "lowered". Anyone went from leveled set up to stock/lowered? Happy you did? No rear blocks make a drastic impact? I feel as if stock with no blocks would ride lightyears better than leveled front and blocks in the back.. but maybe I am wrong?
  3. Thank you, sir! It is an LTZ. I painted the handles, grill, and the headlight surrounds to match. Bought mirror caps that were painted to match as well. I wanted to color match as much as I could, since I had an alloy looking wheel now. Traded my 20s for the Silverado/Tahoe 18s. I didn't like the way my 20s rode, and liked my tire options better with the 18" wheels. Here are some pictures of it before: I also de-badged the truck as well, and took off the door trim. Leveled the truck, replaced the running boards with a set of the squared off ones that came off a Sierra, traded the wheels and tires for 18s, then color matched the door handles and mirror caps: Then painted grill and headlight surrounds:
  4. I didn't know about the Bose subwoofer, which I see someone above has explained. I like my bench, but just thought for some reason there was no way that they put out an LTZ package with a bench. Seems like it is pretty common though, since you and others have the same deal! I appreciate the compliments. Yes sir, I traded my LTZ 20s for 18s a while back. They ride lightyears better than my 20s and less maintenance on keeping them clean!
  5. Thanks for the info! I will take a gander. It is an LTZ. Checked the vin and door jamb sticker. Everything lines up. Trust me, I was going to bust them for selling me an LT as an LTZ, but everything checked out when I looked. I had just never seen an LTZ with a jump seat before. Weird.
  6. Bought my truck used (1 owner CPO), with ~20k miles on it. The truck is an LTZ with all the bells and whistles.. except it has a jump seat, instead of a console. Now, I know a lot of folks switch the console out for the jumpseat, but the previous owner was 65 years old. I highly doubt he switched the console out for a jump seat, or even knew the option existed. Does anyone on here have a jumpseat LTZ (or high trim package) truck, that was like that when you bought it? I am in the market for a console, but haven't looked too hard. I know I will have to get a harness from @pgamboa at some point. Might try and kill two birds in one stone, next time I am in Dallas, and pick up a console and the harness all at once. I don't mind the jumpseat, but miss having a full length console, and am very curious to if these LTZs come from the factory with an LT/WT type jump seat console. Thanks!
  7. So many Arkansans in here. Love it!
  8. Extended Warranty Feedback

    I bought a 4Runner around a year ago, with 55k miles on it. Bought the Toyota extended warranty. Paid like $2800 and it was bumper to bumper/powertrain. 2 months pass by, and I hadn't used it yet.. was thinking of trading, so I cancelled it and was reimbursed a prorated amount (like $2720) or something. Went to buy my used 15 Silverado and went ahead and bought the extended warranty. Bought it through ALLY, but it covers pretty much any functional part of the truck, and all the small details. I didn't plan on buying one, but after seeing all the electronics/computers/etc. inside these vehicles, I decided to get one. I was positive $8k equity on my trade in, so the warranty didn't hurt me as bad as someone who might have a higher pay off price with no equity. I don't think I will ever buy used without getting the extended, especially in this day and age of cars/technology in the cars. There is just that peace of mind there, and it just raises your payment a little bit a month.
  9. I was in the same boat, about this time last year. Back in 2014, I had a 14 F150 for about a year and a half, then traded it in and got my wife a brand new Ford Escape. I drove her old car (Honda CRZ coupe hybrid). Mainly kept that, because I was commuting 25 miles on way, and we lived in Dallas. Was awesome for zipping around traffic, and fitting in the tight parking spaces. Anyway, flash forward to 2016, and we decided to move back to Arkansas. I bought my dad's old truck from him (2013 Tundra Crew Max). Was weird getting back into a truck, but I loved it. Painted to match everything, added Platinum wheels, level, etc. About 6 months pass, and I start to get bored with it/hating driving the monstrosity around. I started to look at cars/SUVs. I was dead set on some luxury sedans, then I got the truck bug again. Went to Dallas to buy a 2015 LTZ Crew Cab, but they sold it about an hour before I got there. A few weeks before that, I had driven a few 4Runners and really fell in love with it. Felt like it was a perfect medium for what I was wanting: size, comfort, and all the features. Found a helluva deal on one, and traded my Tundra in for it. It was a great car for me, and super easy to make look "cool", as well as inexpensive. I was like $11k positive equity on the 4Runner when I bought it. I ran it for about 3.5 months, and really felt like I wanted/needed a truck.. and also felt like I just kind of settled on a 4Runner/spur of the moment type deal. Was looking around, and the dealership up the road had a 15 LTZ Crew Cab with heated everything, power everything, etc. My buddy is a salesman up there, so I called and talked to him. He said they still had it, and they'd love for me to trade my 4Runner in on it. I went up there and test drove the truck, they told me they'd give me $27k for my 4Runner (owed $15k). They had the truck listed for pretty much $27500 after taxes and fees. I didn't even try to talk them down, because it was already listed under market value and they gave me more than I thought I was going to get for my 4R. Anyway, got the truck on a Monday night at 4pm, and they sold my 4R before I even left the parking lot. Some guy had drove in to look at some Infiniti SUVs and fell in love with my 4R, lol. So, now, I am in this truck and have loved every second of it. I have done a few things, like painted the front grill/headlight surrounds, took off the LTZ 20s and put on the Tahoe/Z71 18s for better ride, leveled the truck, tinted it, added bigger tires, etc. After owning a Tahoe in college, and a 4R recently, I don't think I will ever go back to an SUV.. unless I move to a big city again.
  10. What have you done to your K2 today?

    How much that set you back? Thought about doing it to mine. Bought an LTZ that has a flip down seat.. which I like, sometimes.. but miss having a full console.

  13. Post Pics of Your 2014+

    Damn.. quite the turn of events LOL! "Honey, I am going to the dealership to get my oil changed" *2 hours later* "Honey, come look at my new truck!"
  14. I'm Out!

    Had the exact same truck, in a 2013 form. Tundra was awesome, and I got 188k miles out of it. Was missing some tech/interior stuff, that most other trucks had at the time.. but it was still a tank and never gave me a problem. Kinda wish I still had it.. since it was paid off LOL. You wont be disappointed in that new Tundra though. They're super nice, and the paint to match from factory makes those exteriors pop. I came from a Tundra, to a 4Runner (for 3 months) then got back into a Chevy Silverado. Both trucks have their perks. Enjoy the new ride (and space)!
  15. Did these sell? I'll give you $100 for the back, and send you a FedEx label to use.
