    In with the Weather Teks. Given the choice I would go with the Huskies. The back fits wonderfully. The front passenger slides around. The front two have lost there shape a little and fit isn't what it should be for the price you pay.

    Good thing I ordered front Huskies to match my rear Huskies. My rear huskies have held up great over this last year (and I have two small kids) and fit great.

    Those look great. I am in the market for some new all terrains myself. Anxious to hear how you like them. How is the ride quality and road noise with them? Also, could you take a picture from the front or back, id love to see how wide they look.

    Pics will be on there way. Section width and tread width are exact same as stock, 10 4/5" tire size from 31.9" to 33" even. Road noise checked via "earometer " increase of 5-10%. Nearly undetectable change.... Balancing out, I have one tire that is a little off and will get all rebalanced at next oil change/ tire rotation. I have stock skid plate on now and am cutting the bat ears off my TRD Pro skid plate. I bent in my stock plate and took off front splash flaps and with tire stuffed and turned, I have no rub issues. Closest contact about 3/4". Please remember, this is with the TRD Pro suspension and nothing else done. I hope it helps.

    Does the TRP PRO suspension give the truck any lift than stock? It it better than getting a aftermarket leveling kit?

    The TRD Pro raises the front by 2". The back remains the same. The ride quality is better then stock. Bumps and bridge expansion joints are much smoother. I found the truck stays level better in corners. I do have the TRD sway bar so is it the sway bar or suspension? People who want more lift seem to go with 2 Coach Builder shims on each side and +2 shackles on the back. I am of the thought that once you do that UCA need to be addressed and spacers for differential needs to be considered.

    Just added the Spyder Trax to get the tires and wheels out 1.25". Now they are dead even with the fenders. No need for flairs and just a cuddle more aggression. Very happy.

    2015 Tundra side view.jpg @PlatPro I know this is late in the game to ask but did you install the TRD Pro shocks yourself? Cuz, I just got a set of TRD Pro's for my Platinum and I'm debating on putting em' on myself with Coachbuilder +3 shackles, due to I have a LEER XQ cap on or have Toyota Dealer install them. I don't wanna sag when carrying a load in the back. I too will be installing 275/60R20's with +25 offset Method NV's when they get here. I've been waiting a while now. You got a nice truck PlatPro, looks really nice. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours.
