Daystar 2.5" Leveling kit for now. I pretty much put it on when I first got the truck. My friend owns a shop out here in Santa Clarita, Ace Customs. He got me a really good deal on the kit and installed it. Works great for what it is intended for, leveling, but I plan to upgrade to the Fox Coilovers with reservoirs and some new UCA in the future for some more serious off roading abilities!

Went with 5100's front and rear for mine. Front it set at the 2nd setting. Got it installed by a local shop and cost about $300 for install and alignment.

I have the Low Range Off Road 3/1 leveling kit. http://www.lowrangeoffroad.com/tundra.htm

This kit includes a stainless steel spacer that installs on top of the strut, keeping the stock feel and raising the front 3". The rear is lifted with a 1" stainless block with new Ubolts. The block is tapered 3 degrees to help keep the drive shaft straight.

The kit costs $300 and I paid $50 locally to have my front end aligned.

I installed the kit myself which took me a little over 3 hours because I took my time. This was the first major mod I did on my truck. Here is a video on how to install:

Here is the result on my truck

3" spacer in front and 1" shackel from canuck motorsports, also a 2" block in the back for a touch bit more rake. That way it levels out when I hook up to something. In all I think it cost me about $150 and I got no complaints.

I have a Stage 1 ProComp. No Idea how much it costed to install because the dealer put it on before i bought the truck. The lift was probably the reason i bought the truck.......

I don't have a way to upload pics at the moment, but I have the Truxxx 3"/1" leveling kit, installed it myself with some help, ride quality didn't change at all after I got it aligned! I was planning on upgrading to a 6" lift this spring but I'm indecisive and might buy a bass boat instead.

I replied to a WTT thread on another sight. The guys 60 yr old sister bought her truck with the lift and wheels/tires already on it. After a few months she found it hard to get in and out. I told him I had a new FBG 3" kit and 18 Moto Metals and great 305 BFG's and ist all history from there. I paid 350.00 to the shop doing the swap and now I am rollin on 24's with a 6 in lift!!!!! I could not pass it up. I even got to help w/ the swap!. Made me feel better about it getting to help. Props to F Bomb Diesel Performance for the swap!!!

yeah, hows the luck w/ trying to trade the tires/wheels?

I have some things going against me. 1- I am still using them so its hard to sell or trade wheels only or tires only. 2- the combo only fits lifted trucks. I am hopping I can get new wheels/tires w/ my tax money and I can break them down and sell seperately.

I guess I'll put my lift in too. Radflo suspension, front coilovers cranked up to about 4". The rear is up 1.5" with a Toytec AAL. Planning to get a 1" shackle lift to compensate for the sag with all the extra weight from my rack and tool box.
