2024 Toyota Tundra Double Cab SR5 Model Specifications

First Impressions

From the moment I laid eyes on the 2024 Tundra Double Cab, I was impressed by its rugged yet refined appearance. Opting for the double cab was a deliberate choice—I needed the longer bed for hauling my camper in the wintertime, and it certainly gives the truck a more robust, “truck-like” look. The SR5 model I chose came with a TRD off-road package, a TRD off-road premium package, and a premium audio package, among other features.

The interior, featuring black soft text, felt luxurious and practical. Toyota’s attention to detail with various packages and customizations meant that I could get everything I wanted, though it did make navigating the options a bit tricky. Nevertheless, it was worth it.

Customizations and Modifications

In its stock form, the Tundra was already impressive. However, my vision was to create an OEM+ build, maintaining factory reliability and functionality while adding a touch of personal flair.

Wrap and Exterior Mods

The first major modification was a full vehicle wrap. I chose a 3M gloss white, matching the factory color but providing added protection and a fresh look. The gloss SA camo on the hood with an orange stamp was a bold move, reflecting my personal style and love for white vehicles, a preference that started with my Sprinter van last year.

Jake from Lucid in Denver handled the wrap, and his work was impeccable. We deleted the chrome mustache around the front grill, added orange pinstripes along the mirrors, and incorporated my branding with side camo and orange accents. The Lucid drip, a signature customization started on my Supra and Tacoma, found its place on the Tundra, adding a unique touch.

Lighting Enhancements

Upgrading the lights was next on the list. The TRD Pro Grill, combined with diode dynamic lights, significantly enhanced the front end. We installed an 18-inch light bar within the grill, providing ample lighting for my camping trips. The factory fog lights were replaced with brighter diode dynamics kits, ensuring maximum visibility on and off-road.

I also opted for Alpharex headlights, which look aggressive and clean, with amber DRLs to match the rest of the truck’s theme. The amber grill lights and backlit ditch lights from Diode Dynamics tied everything together, maintaining the OEM+ feel while adding functional upgrades.

Suspension, Wheels, and Tires

For the suspension, I chose a Westcott Designs TRD preload collar lift. This decision was based on extensive research and feedback from the community. The goal was to lift the truck without compromising the factory ride quality. After installing the new TRD suspension components and the preload collar lift, the Tundra now sits 3 inches higher in the front and 1.5 inches higher in the rear, perfectly leveled and ready for any terrain.

I paired the lift with Black Rhino Vols wheels in matte black, opting for a 17×8.5 inch size with a zero offset. These wheels are strong yet lightweight, thanks to Black Rhino’s flow form technology. They look fantastic and add a rally-inspired aesthetic to the truck.

The tires were the final touch. I went with Firestone Destination MT2s, 37×12.5 inches. These tires are aggressive and ready for any off-road challenge. The improved traction and durability are evident, and they perform well on both wet and dry surfaces.

Driving Experience

Driving the 2024 Tundra Double Cab has been a revelation. The enhanced suspension and tire setup provide a smooth, controlled ride, even on rough terrain. The truck feels stable and powerful, with plenty of clearance for off-road adventures. Despite the modifications, it retains its factory characteristics, thanks to the well-thought-out upgrades.

The interior is comfortable and spacious, with all the modern amenities I need. The premium audio package delivers excellent sound quality, and the various TRD upgrades make every drive enjoyable.

Conclusion

The 2024 Toyota Tundra Double Cab has exceeded my expectations in every way. From its solid build quality and powerful performance to the extensive customizations, it truly stands out as a versatile and reliable truck. Whether I’m hauling camping gear, tackling off-road trails, or just enjoying a drive, this Tundra delivers on all fronts.

If you’re considering a new truck, I highly recommend checking out the 2024 Tundra.
