Bailey’s Back! 2011 Tundra | DCSB 4x4 Build | “Clifford”


BJ's Tundra :)

After 4.5 months of owning a Van, I decided it was time to get back to a Tundra. The Van was mostly purchased due to being in a poor financial situation at the end of 2019 and being not so sure whether or not I’d have a place to live.

The van served its purpose but it was time to move on. This week, I had some very unexpected news that really sucked. However, it did result in me being able to get back into a Truck. This afternoon I took delivery of a 2011 Tundra DCSB - Limited 4x4 - w/ 110k miles

Clifford when I picked the truck up:

Picked up a cheap Husky Crossover Tool Box on CL.

This is perfect for all of my tools, jumper cables, recovery gear, and camping gear. It's nice being able to lock everything away and keep it out of the cab of the truck

I might add a wheel tray to the top of the box for my MTB. Not too sure yet.

Also need to figure out if I'll mount MAXTRAX to the unit or squeeze them inside

It sure feels great to be back in the state I call home

Once I saw the Welcome To Colorful Colorado sign, I felt an instant relief. It was a long drive from SoCal

- 4:30 AM | Left to grab my dad to take him to the airport
- 6:00 AM | dropped him off
- Took the Southern route through Arizona and headed North into Flagstaff
- Ended up heading to Durango, CO and then through Silverton and Ouray
- 10:30 PM | Found a hotel room in Ridgway, CO (nearly everything else was booked)

- 9:00 AM | decided to head back into Ouray to hit Red Mountain Pass and get a few photos
- 10:20 AM | left town and made my way towards Ft. Collins
- 5:30 PM | Arrived in FoCo
