Default Leveled my Tundra

Stock


5100's installed on the middle setting with stock tires


275/70-18's installed, 2.5" higher with tires in the front. Rear is 1/4" higher than the front.

Pretty happy with it.

Now you just need some 2.5" lift springs for the rear. What year is that Tundra? how many miles on it? I love that color. Started eyeing one of those as my next truck. Would you buy the same again? What do you like/dislike? Why 275.70.18 and not bigger?
Seriously though, sweet truck.

Nice. I've never liked the new Tundras, but that one actually looks pretty good. I guess I'm just a generation behind

Thanks guys

It's a 2012 first new vehicle I have had, have a little over 16k on it in the 10 months I've had it. Went a little bigger from my 2001 Tacoma. The color is pyrite micah I really like it too. I went with the level because I didn't want to deal with any possible CV issues on my new truck, as for the tires I didn't want any rub on anything and the 275's were taller and cheaper than 285's. Also don't want to screw up the gas mileage too much. This is my DD and will only hit the occasional dirt road for rafting, biking, or skiing.
I like the 6.5' bed and the power is awesome. The fuel mileage is a little better than I expected. Only thing I really didn't care for was the stock stance really low in the front but that's all better now. Thanks Slee.
