10 Most Popular Tundra Accessories
Here’s a list of the ten most popular Toyota Tundra accessories for 2008 as listed by AutoAnything.com. If you click on some of the links below and buy something, it helps us out. But, if you don’t, that’s cool too.
1 ) Husky Liners
Starting at about $50 a set from AutoAnything for the front, about the same for the rear. Who doesn’t love floormats?
2 ) WeatherTech Extreme Duty Liners
The WeatherTech extreme duty floor liners are about 50% more expensive than the normal WeatherTech liners (around $60 a set, front or back), but they’re deeper and able to hold a lot more “muck”.
3 ) K&N Air Filter
A simple K&N air filter doesn’t add as much power as a cold air intake kit, but it doesn’t cost near as much either. If you’re looking for a way to make the engine sound a little more throaty while also adding a little power and boosting fuel economy, a basic K&N filter is a great idea. It also makes sense to add a basic K&N air filter if you plan on adding a supercharger to your truck later. The basic K&N air filter costs about $40. Check out our K&N air filter review – we recorded a 1mpg fuel economy gain!
4 ) Carriage Works Billet Grill
We’ve mentioned this thing before (check our our Carriage Works billet grille review) – it’s really easy to install and it gives your truck more of a “custom” look. Choose between a polished, brushed, or black finish, as well as if you want the Toyota logo to show or not. They cost about $140.
5 ) Volant Cold Air Intake
We reviewed the Volant air intake kit for the Tundra in October 2007, and we found the kit to be of good quality and the people at Volant to be very responsive. Since that time, we’ve heard about fitment issues and poor customer service. While the fitment issue is minor (we still measured decent power gains despite the small fender gap), hopefully the poor customer service is an aberration. Volant’s kit added about 5-10hp to our test vehicle, depending upon the RPM range being measured. One other benefit to the Volant kit is that it sounds excellent (see our Volant intake sounds video). If you’re looking at adding a cold air intake to your truck, and you’re interested in saving some money, the Volant Cold Air Intake for the Toyota Tundra deserves consideration.
6 ) Undercover Tonneau Cover
We really like solid tonneau covers – as long as you can plan your hauling in advance (and remove your tonneau before you need room for tall cargo) they offer security, good looks, and excellent durability. Available on Tundras with either the 5 1/2′ or 6 1/2′ foot bed, the Undercover Tonneau Cover is made of black ABS, includes two lock cylinders that are pretty secure, it seems indestructible, and it goes on and off really easily. It even comes with a “wall mount kit” so you can hang it up on the wall of your garage out of the way. We haven’t had a chance to formally review this thing yet, but our first impression was extremely positive. Pricing starts at around $600.
7 ) Extang Tri-Folding Tonneau Cover
Basically, the Extang Trifecta tonneau is a lightweight aluminum frame with a vinyl cover (check out our Extang Solid Fold tonneau review for information about the Trifecta’s “big brother”). It folds into thirds which makes it easy and manageable for one person to put it on or remove it, and it also allows you to fold it out of the way when you need to put in a tall load. Cost wise, it’s quite a bit less than a solid ABS or fiberglass piece. The warranty is solid (10 years), and unlike a lot of vinyl covered frame tonneau’s we’ve seen before, this one doesn’t look or feel cheap. The only disadvantage is that it’s not a true solid piece, so it’s not really secure. If you’re worried about it walking away – or if you’re thinking about turning your truck’s bed into a trunk – this isn’t the tonneau cover for you. You can see a hokey demo video here, and you can buy it here for about $400.
8 ) Truxedo Truxsport Tonneau Cover
Soft tonneau covers like the Truxedo offer a lot of the features of a solid cover, yet they can quickly and easily be removed. However, most inexpensive soft tonneaus have bows and a rear cross member above the tailgate that need to be stored somewhere when the tonneau is rolled up. The Truxedo rolls up nicely and takes all the crossmembers with it. Together the whole thing tucks up against the cab in a nice little package. The Truxedo isn’t as easy to completely install and remove as the Extang Trifecta, nor does it offer the security of the Undercover. However, if you want a simple soft tonneau that doesn’t cost much, this is a good fit. Pricing runs about $275.
9 ) K&N 77 Series Cold Air Intake
K&N is the most trusted name in air intakes, and it’s for a good reason. They make quality products with great warranties that always perform well. We tested this kit a few months ago and our performance results basically matched the K&N dyno chart. We didn’t like the way this kit went together at all – check out our review of the K&N cold air intake, then check out our review of the AFE cold air intake to see why we liked the AFE air intake better. Still, prices for the K&Nrange from $275-$350, meaning you can sometimes get a good bargain.
10 ) Bakflip Tonneau Cover
The Bakflip is a lot like the Extang Trifecta, except it’s much more secure. Basically, it’s a solid one piece tonneau that’s been sectioned and then hinged so it can be folded up. It’s not quite as tough as the Undercover tonneau, but it also folds up making removal by one person much simpler. It also fits inside the bed rails instead of sticking up and over the rails like most tonneau covers. BAK claims the “between the rails” design is better in terms of drag, but it’s probably more a stylistic choice than a genuine benefit one way or the other. If you’re looking for all the security of a solid tonneau, but you want something you can fold out of the way for taller cargo, this is your tonneau cover. Prices start at about $600 and go up from their depending on bed length (it’s available in all sizes).

I think this one should be on the list, OEM style Fog Lamps for non TRD package
I agree. Also, at a reasonable price.
I have a blue 2005 tundra XSP with the borla air intake and dual exhuast. i bought this gem used and the original Borla air filter is missing. Where can i get a replacement for it? I am in New Jersey so anyone out there knows somewhere in Jersey please let me know. Also is there a supercharger to retro fit to the IForce V8 i have? I am looking to really go all out on this truck. It is the fastest truck i have ever driven now, and the best looking, but i want everything , within good taste, I can put into it. I already have the hard paint matched toneau cover and chrome nerfs.
I have a 2012 tundra and wondering if a cold air intake will be much help. Looks pretty optimized already.
i can’t find cigarettes liter
You can check in Ebay. I found it but it costs $27.00. I decided to buy a Bic lighter instead.
i can’t find cigarettes litter
I had a Tacoma 2012 but change it for a Tundra SR5 2013. I tried the Tacoma’s lighter on my Tundra but it doesn’t work. Wonder why.
Anthony – No cigarette lighter? I think you can order one from the parts department…not sure why it didn’t make the top 10 list, but I bet you’re right about it being popular. If only 1 in 10 truck owners buys a lighter, that would make it a top 10 part.
Yea I have been looking for foglights for my tundra. Any suggestions?
Henry – Check out this post: https://www.tundraheadquarters.com/blog/2008/07/30/toyota-tundra-aftermarket-lighting-options/
I have a 09 5.7 Crewmax, can anyone tell me if adding an aftermarket exhaust & cold air intake will void the warranty?
If it does, then we’re all non-compliant! No to the CAI but not sure on exhaust. Doubt it as well.
Wes – Neither of those accessories will void your warranty. In fact, many Toyota dealers are installing after-market air intakes and exhaust systems from TRD on brand new trucks. While it’s true that TRD is a Toyota company, TRD parts are available after-market and considered accessories. So long as your cold air intake or exhaust system is properly installed, your warranty is 100% in effect.
Wes – One more thing – my comments shouldn’t be construed to mean that you have to buy TRD accessories. Any reputable accessory manufacturer is OK.
Me and several military friends are trying to locate chrome door handles for our 2004 Toyota Tundra (double cab) We’ve looked on every website possible and local auto shop around. Is this even possible?
Kimmy – Not sure. Autoanything.com and Amazon.com are our favorite sites because they carry 95% of the parts that are available.
Jason or anyone,
Does Toyota make an OE bully bar in front for the 07 on up Tundras? I called 2 dealers and they both said no, Toyota does not make one, but can get aftermarket for 400 bucks on up.
mk – No OE bull bars. Check this out: https://www.tundraheadquarters.com/blog/2008/06/25/bull-bar-buyers-guide/
I have a 2007 tundra. I’ve left my lights on a few times because there is no warning chime…is this a problem, or did toyota leave this option of the 07 trucks?
Matt – That doesn’t seem right to me…I think you should check your manual. Didn’t all 07 Tundras have automatic headlights? If so, they’re not working correctly.
Matt i have auto headlights with my 07 Crewmax Limited I have them set to go off in 1 minute after I lock the door. They go off at that preset time.
It’s not in the 07 book as to whether or not what style truck has auto headlights.
Mickey – For some reason I remember that all the Tundras in 07 came with a bunch of standards that were later stripped off in 2008…but that’s just one man’s memory. Matt – if you have auto headlights, they’re not working correctly. If you don’t have them, then you should hear a warning…
Does any body know of a TRUE dual exhaust for ’07 lwb 4×4? Also, how about an spare fuel tank?
Pat – Try searching for “fuel tank” and “dual exhaust” on our site.
I BOUGHT A 2008 TUNDRA, WITH 2O” WHEELS, WITH A TRUUKS 3″ LIFT KIT, WITH DEALER INSTALLED FENDER FLARES, TOOK THE FENDER FLARES OFF AT DAY 2, TRYING TO FIND A MUD FLAP THAT WILL WORK BEYOND THE FACORTY MUD FLAP. NO AFTERMARKET COMPANYS HAVE ANYTHING FOR TOYOTA TUNDRAS. LOOKING FOR SOMETHING IN THE 20″ TO 25″ LENGTH TO 12″ TO 14″ WIDTH RANGE.
Bob – I think there are some universal mud flaps floating around – did you look at AutoAnything.com and JC Whitney?
Does anyone know if there is a reliable programmer out yet for the 2010 Tundra’s.
Tyler – No programmers on the market – the best option is the UniChip tuner. I believe it’s available on the 2010 5.7L trucks. https://www.tundraheadquarters.com/blog/2009/03/13/unichip-performance-chip-engine-tuner/
Rick – Sounds cool man – thanks for posting.
Hey i have a ’05 Tundra SR5 crew cab. i was wondering if they make a power programer for it, and also would like to know where the best place to install 2 12in speakers and a amp would be. i can not seem to find a place to put them and cant cut throw the cab to the bed for more room due to the window rolling down in the back. Thanks for the help
Tyler – Not sure on the programmer for the 05’s – did you do a search on Amazon.com and AutoAnything.com? If one exists, you’ll find it in one of those two places. As for the stereo, the best idea might be to consult with a professional. Your local stereo shop can probably design a custom enclosure for a few hundred bucks.
I think you hit a busylele there fellas!
Thanks Jason I will look on those sites. And I will do that and call the stereo shop in town. I was just wondering because I use to work for a Stereo shop and just couldn’t come up with anything because there isn’t anyspace under or behind the seat. But thanks for helping me out man.
For sure – sorry my suggestion on the stereo wasn’t more specific.
its all good man maybe they can come up with something but i found alot on the web sites and its all thanks to you
Yow say the UAW is tryiing to kill a U.S. Institution?! How is that so? The UAW has been fighting for the rights of U.S. workers way before then!! Your ignorance disgusts me!!
Richard – The UAW has a long documented history of bleeding GM, Ford, and Chrysler for every penny. You can call it fighting for rights if you want to, but we all know what happened a few months ago. GM and Chrysler, which had not turned a profit for the better part of a decade, failed. The UAW played a critical role in the failure of those two companies. These are the facts.
For the record, poor managers at GM and Chrysler also played a role in the failure of those companies. If you want to argue who had more of an impact be my guest, but to say that the UAW is just “fighting for rights” is painting a very rosy picture.
That’s an apt answer to an inseiettrng question
I got an 2010 toyota tundra (short bed) and I’m lookin for the tonneau cover to match the silver metallic I got. Can you send me a website or number where I can purchase the “toyota tonneau” cover. I’m currently deployed overseas and just really like the look of the toyota tonneau cover. Thanks!
Otis – Check out http://www.toyotapartscenter.net/ and https://www.tundraheadquarters.com/blog/2008/07/02/a-toyota-dealership-parts-department-that-understands-the-internet/
Is there a kit out there to upgrade the rear brakes to disc on a 2000 toyota tundra?
Billy – No idea. Check out TundraRacing.com. If they don’t have one, they’ll know where you can get one.
I bought Huskey Floor liners for my 08 Tundra. I think they would be considered the original Huskey liners, that are molded to fit each type vehicle specifically. They seem to cause an overly large ridge at the bottom edge of the throttle. The gas pedal doesn’t stick on this ridge, but does cause a bit of an uncomfortable feel when you are at full or close to full throttle. Just wondering if anyone has this same problem, and if so if they have done anything to fix it?
im about to purchase a 4.7L ’07 or ’08 Tundra SR5. Any suggestions on how I start climbing up the HP ladder from 280?
mike – See if you can get a 5.7 instead! LOL! It goes like this: intake, exhaust, computer chip, supercharger, and then spend money on the motor until your wallet is empty.
my 07 is missing one of the two TRD decals on the rear fender. any idea where i can pick one up? dealership wants $72 + tax. for a sticker?!?
Matt – That price has a lot of profit in it – did you check with Sparks (http://trdsparks.com/index.php ), Texas Toyota (http://www.toyota-parts.com/ ), or Olathe (http://www.toyotapartscenter.net/ )? They are all Toyota dealers that sell parts online for a fair mark-up. Then you can pay a clear bra installer to put the sticker on for you (the process is nearly identical). However, be warned: if the installation goes wrong, you’ll need to buy a new sticker. Part of the reason the Toyota dealer is marking it up is so they can afford to buy a replacement in case they mess up.
I HAVE A 4.7 IN A TOYOTA TUNDRA,07 IS THERE A POWERCHIP,FOR IT
Pete – Check out the UniChip Tuner. https://www.tundraheadquarters.com/blog/2009/03/13/unichip-performance-chip-engine-tuner/
Access Vanish roll up cover…best available. period.
I have a 2005 Tundra 4×4, 4.7 I am trying to determine out of all the comments i have read what is the most economical way to get more gas mileage out of this unit. I average about 18-20 MPG on the freeway at 60 mph. I live in CA, I have read the site that tells you how to get better mileage.I guess i am confused at the different approaches to getting results. Please give it a response. thanks in advance
Rene – The best place to post comments is on posts relevant to the topic.
I have a 2010 5.7 tundra 4×4 and am looking for a good programer that increases hp and fuel milage is there one out there
Tyler – There’s really only one option – UniChip.
Hey Tyler… You cant boost horsepower and expect to save on fuel. Its one or the other. Do you want power or do you want to save on fuel? Remember… POWER = FUEL
I have presently heard some bad reviews on e3 plugs. Any suggestions on replacments for my 07 tundra 5.7 trd limited?
Also I have been looking for a computer tuner (ie super chip, dully bog) dut there web sites do not list Toyota at all. What manufacture makes one for the tundra and if there are more than one what do you suggest? Have you done any compaeisons?
Recently purchased my third Toyota Tundra. So disappointed in the outside mirrors in that you split it in two, supposedly to deal with “blind spot” vehicles. Should’ve left the original single piece mirror. Have already had a backing accident (light post) because I could not “read” distance to post while using outside mirror. Have to be extra cautious when driving in heavy traffic when shifting lanes – difficult to tell when traffic may be passing me on the right.
Since my truck is still under warranty at 13,500 miles, is it possible to have mirrors exchanged for the old ones?
Marty – Not a warranty issue my friend, it’s a preference issue. Sorry to hear you don’t like them, but I don’t see anyone giving you mirrors for free. 🙂
Your reply to our email didn’t make it to the site – you’ve got to click the link if you want to reply.
I would suggest buying a set of smaller stock mirrors on eBay (might be able to buy a used set cheap) and swapping them out. They should be 100% interchangeable.
I personally like the mirrors. If mirrors are set properly on any vehicle, there’s no reason for error.
On the Tundra “split mirror” the mirrors should be adjusted where the driver can “just” barely see the edge of the tail lights , and only when tilting your head forward slightly.
At least this works for me.
i have a 2003 11/2 carbin tundra. i need a cargo(back space) cover that will make it look like a jeep(seqiua . what is the name of the part and where can i get it. thanks
Not really sure what you are asking. Do you have a photo link or another explanation?
I’m not sure either. Maybe Tonnue cover or possibly a roll bar. I need a beer.
What about remote starts? Are the available?
You can get remote starts for the Tundra. You can find them on EBay, AutoAnything or at your local dealership.
When I bought my 2014 sr5 at my local dealer they told me they had never installed one on a Tundra. And the parts manager said he went back as far so 2010.
When I go to the toyota website all of the vehicles will allow you to build the vehicle and add the remote start in the accessoories except for the tundra and tacoma.
I am apart of south eastern toyota. Would this make a difference?
Hello to all, the contents existing at this website are actually amazing for people knowledge, well, keep up
the nice work fellows.
I just ordered a 2015 Double Cab, 8′ Bed, 5.7L V8, SR5, TRD Tundra. If I add the dual stainless exhaust and CAI will I see a increase in fuel mileage? I drive 3000-5000 miles a month for work and most of it is on the highway.
I’m going to have the dealer add a 3″ suspension lift for me as well $1200 installed. I figure it would be beneficial when I’m driving on and off job sites with rough terrain. Good idea or bad?
Wow! Afterr all I got a web site from where I know how to really obtain useful data regarding my
study and knowledge.
