    I have a 2012 Crewmax and it allready has a 3" OME full lift with Drakar Spring pack and 285/65/ 18 tires, which i belive is a 32 1/2" tire.
    I would like to get a couple more inches of height and was wondering if there is any thing i can add to the existing lift to achive a little more height, Like spacers or level kit.
    It still has a slight rake and could use a little more level.

    4 inches is the max on a 4x4. After that you would have to cut the frame and install a bracket lift. Really anything more than 3 -3.5 isnt good for your front diff. If you just wantless rake, you should install 1 coachbuilder shim on each coil over. This will give you a half inch lift to put you at 3.5 inches. I wouldn't go anymore than that. Do you have a differential drop kit installed? If not, get one.

    Coachbuilder is a vendor on this site.

    I agree with Trucky. Go up to 3.5" lift and install 35" tires that will give you a total of 1.75" more lift. Not much but should be noticeable.

    This is my plan as soon as I need new tires. Have 34.5" tires now but will increase to 3.5" on the coilovers, add LR UCAs and rear extended shackles. Then go to full 35" tires next round.

    Definitely get larger tires. Then you could see where you are. I got my OME lift first (3 & 1/2 inches). I didn't think it changed all that much until I installed the 34.5 inch tires. Now it's not as easy to get in and out of the truck. My wife complains sometimes (she's 5' 7"). After larger tires, if you still want more, you could add one shim on each side (1/2 inch more). Personally I would not go any higher than that.

    Haha, I need those tires. I would need something slightly larger than OME. I bet the truck floats on water.
