    Running a 6" Rough country lift with fox shocks, 20x9 0mm ballistic jester rims with 35x12.50x20 Toyo MTs. I run the stock 18" rims with spidertrax spacers and 33" mastercraft courser snow tires when in winter mode.

    When did the Tundra become a 1/2 ton?? Is it a 150 or 1500 hmmm?? It doesn't say because it more of a 3/4 ton than 1/2.
    I would LOVE to put my wide out on a Tundra. Right now it's on a 2005 f250 5.4 diesel. Ya 5.4 diesel rattling cam phasers, valve train, gas sucking, no power but it's North American,ya what ever!
    Please show more Tundras with WIDE OUTS!http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

    Had to make a custom drop down brackets on the truck side. I run 33" snow tires on my stock rims for plowing also.

    lol I love it when a Dodge guy says that not realizing his Italian truck is made in Mexico. Though I'm Canadian and consider every vehicle (Except Bricklin) to be an import, I joke and tell them "Well my truck was made in TX by Texans" lol

    Have you ever been pulled over with that much weight on the truck? Before I went on my own, I was pulled over twice with the company 2500 chevy. They made me wait for them to get the scales, and I was overloaded both times. I'd think they'd watch half tons even closer. Although I've never been pulled over in my dodge 1500, so who knows, maybe I was just unlucky.

    I love the look of the newer Tundra. Wish they would make a 3/4 ton, it would be my next truck. Had an 01 (older style) for about 8 months before I was rear ended. Didn't take the abuse that my dodge does, but the newer Tundras look like they're built a little more heavy duty than the last models.

    I should note that I have never plowed with either the dodge or the old tundra, so I have nothing to compare as far as snow. Just me loading it with junk.

    Here's my 2016 tundra. I have F250s and 2500hds that always let me down in storms. My tundra was the back up.but now for 3 seasons I've been running the wideout and a 1.5 ton Salter lol. I'm sure everyones gonna say I'm insane and I agree, its ratings are bs for payload but it's never let me down.. no front end or back end repairs or frame cracked. I keep the truck oil sprayed and it's far better than my other trucks. 20190119_050255.jpg 20190119_050240.jpg

    Love it! Wide out on my 400000 km 08 tundra. Only plowed with it last winter but best plow truck EVER. I've been plowing for 30 years.

    Thanks for the photos. I will be installing an 8'6" MVP3 on my 13 Crew Max soon. I am now looking at front suspension mods. What mods. did you do to the front suspension to carry the Wideout? Thanks for sharing the information!

    You might want Timbrens for that also. My ‘12 rock warrior has a boss 7’6” HTX on it with Bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks and timbrens up front. It could easily handle more plow but the timbrens are nice little insurance and they are cheap.

    Timbrens placed on the front or rear bumpstop factory location? I see mine has bumpstops on both locations. I

    Leveling kit meaning 2.5" spacers on top of strut/spring mounting plates? Timbrens in rear as well for salter? How is ride when not using with plow or salter compared to factory?
