Tube running boards are a must IMO, I will also be making some custom carbon a-arm protectors.

Yeah, yeah I know it's only a Tundra... but here's my mods, wide skins and a winch. Don't laugh, I just might be the one pulling you out some day.

Tundra's are not what they used to be..... "only a tundra" onlyapplies when its an old 250 single...

The tundra extreme looks like a nice rig.... for utility sleds anyway..

Tundras rock dude. I got out last fri to try the rear skid, rebuilt shocks and 2.3" track and it seemed to work quite well after I moved the front mount down and back and the rear the same. I need to dial the rear suspension in as it was just a wicked wheelie machine but unfortunately didn't get the chance as I siezed the motor. Here is a picture of the rear mounts I used that my local dealer let me peel out of and old wrecked chassis Way stronger then the stock ones which were cracked when I pulled them out.

They Say getting stuck is half the fun. Which means all my friend are having just as much fun pulling me out of the rubarb all the time.

I find the stock riser a little too tall with the iso-vibe, but i love having the iso-sx installed.. Takes a lot of shock out of the bars.

Havent been out much. Weather got warm here for a bit, but its gettin cold and more snow again now.
Hope to get out on my days off more but time is tight.

The warm spell then cold made for a great base, just need more snow.

You will notice a big difference in how much the bars beat you up.. Especially on moguls and hard landings.. Get the iso-vibe sx tho..

A tweaked a-arm is better than no ridin... :lol:

I ordered everything i could from C&T... Shipping across the border adds a few bucks tho, unless your in a border town like i am.. Just drive across to pick it up = way better rates. Funny how that few hundred yards over the ditch makes a big difference.. :lol:

I gotta get out again soon.. Ive been Havin withdrawls from "My Pet Monster" or "Animal" :)

I love this sled!
:woohoo:

I reccomended getting the sx cuz u ride hard, put away bent.... ;)
You can also cut down the brp riser and bolt it to the isovibe.
I highly doubt you won't like it. Mine ok okay height but the added 1-1/2" made it more comfortable to stand than sit. It was higher to begin with but didnt seem to feel out of place. Now for sure easier to ride standing tho.
Im also in the forward post position and riser is in line with the post.

heres a couple on the truck..
