#1 of 351 Tundra Camper Modifications
Oct 05, 2001 (10:22 am)
I am trying to find a source for getting a quad cab Tundra 4X4 modified to add a camper-type shell to bed that is tied together with cab so there is internal access between cab and bed. The goal is to get a hybrid vehicle with interior similar to Sequoia SUV but with utility of the pickup bed of the Tundra.
#2 of 351 Tundra Performance Modifications

I just bought a 2002 Tundra LTD, V8, automatic, and am interested if anyone else has put on aftermarket exhaust, air intake systems, etc, and how noticeable they were. I put these on a Dodge Ram I had previously and the performance was very noticeable, but some vehicles benefit more than others. Anyone out there with these mods?
#4 of 351 Cruise Control

Does anyone know the best way to add cruise control to my 1993 basic Toyota truck? I'd like to get the orginal system off a truck in a junkyard, but they are hard to find. Is there a special aftermarket cruise control available for older Toyota trucks? I checked at the dealer and the kits only went back to 1997.

I went for the after market exhaust system, got the flowmaster muffler and tailpipes-stainless chrome things with the sharp/angled edges.
They stick out of each side, fairly noticeable, especially when clean.
A mid range sound. I don't know the actual number (i.e. 40's, 70's). Not obnoxious, but they sound healthy.
I think they mean more to people that really know cars than to me. I'm just learning and am enjoying this expensive, creative process.
#6 of 351 Toytota Security System
Jul 05, 2002 (2:04 am)
I will be picking up my new 2002 Tacoma Prerunner Extended Cab today (July 5th). It does not have the security system on it so I started looking around the internet for one. Romania Toyota has the RS3200 Genuine Toyota Security System on sale right now for $199.00. I snapped one up. Their website is toyotaguys.com. I have nothing to do with them commercially and I hope it is OK to bring this to the attention of the group. This is my first message and I hope I haven't broken any forum rules. Thank You D.W.

does your taco have keyless entry? Also, did you have the option to purchase the alarm when you got the truck?

I don't have keyless entry but that comes with the security system. You get two remotes. I purchased my truck through an auto broker and got the one that had most of the options I wanted. It came from our local Toyota dealer. I get a better deal from the broker. Just bought my wife a 2002 RAV4 from the same broker. Originally I was going to have the dealer put the security system and the tow hitch on. The broker made it part of the deal and I was going to get both items at dealer cost. The night before I got the truck I found I could get the security system and install it myself and a tow hitch is much cheaper from many other places that a Toyota dealer. Nixed these two items from my order and my monthly payment went down $16 a month. One thing to note. Your truck must have power door locks in order to be able to use the security system. If you look on a window sticker the RS3200 security system is $499. I think $199 and a little bit of labor on my part is a good deal. The kit comes with instructions and everything is plug in. No soldering and hopefully no drilling. The kit even includes tie wraps.

I was gonna mention that if your taco(ma) had the keyless entry already installed, then you might be able to upgrade the factory system to full alarm for free (RS3000 model not sure about the others)! My '02 Tundra came with the keyless entry as part of the convenience package and they wanted, I think, another $250 or so for the alarm upgrade. I said no, and then later found out that the alarm is factory pre-installed in the '02 Tundra. All you have to do is spend about 30 mins simply unplugging/plugging a couple connectors and programming the remotes. But you have to buy the LED/microphone ($25) and glass breakage sensor ($ ?), as that isn't pre-installed.
Wasn't sure if your taco was the same; sounds like not, but just wanted to mention that cause you might get off cheaper!
#10 of 351 Tundra Tailgate removal

Does anyone know how to remove the tailgate on the 2000 Tundra. Any hints? Is it a big job?
Thanks for any help offered.
