    2.5" / 1.5" leveling kit ; 275/70/18 BFG AT/KO's
    I have "ordered" a 2015 from my local dealer that should be arriving in the next few days. I'm going to have a leveling kit installed as soon as the truck comes in, along with new tires. I bought the Tundra for towing a camper, so I don't want to go crazy with the height of the leveling kit... I inquired about a 2" front / 1" rear and the dealership said they generally install a 3" front / 1" rear along with 275 / 70 / 18's. Does this sound right? I want to be sure it's proportional - not too much empty fenderwell, but not look like the tire is squeezed in....

    Even better - does anyone have this set up and care to share a picture?

    Welcome! Some brands to consider:
    ReadyLift
    Toytec

    With the leveling kit, you can go larger than 275/70/18 if you wanted, and probably with minor trimming.

    3" front spacer lift and 2" rear spring lift. Moto rims 18x9 with 18+ offset wrapped with 295x70x18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2, K&N drop in fliter and G-Tek SABM.
    Good luck with your new Tundra, I did a 3" front and a rear add a leaf which raised it about 1 3/4". The reason I went with a spring instead of a block because I tow a in closed car hauler trailer. With my last truck I did the blocks and the back end of the truck would drop quite a bit. With the spring I have hardly any sag and it increases haul capacity also. I put 295/70/18 nitto terra grappler m2's on20150320_100230.jpg 20150321_095836.jpg

    Bilstein front and rear. Front set to 2.5" and no lift in the back. Ride is much improved over stock, rides and drive like a truck now instead of a car.

    I didn't feel comfortable going with lift blocks (which I found out is illegal in PA) especially seeing some pictures of broken front struts. I went with the OME kit. I have 614 coils in the front and add-a-leaf in the rear. The front is lifted 3 & 1/2 inches and rear is lifted 1 & 3/8. Right now, the rear is 1/8 of an inch higher than the front. The ride is firm in a good way.

    Thanks so much for the responses and pictures. They have really helped. I think I am going to go with a 2" spacer in the front and nothing in the rear. Sounds like most everyone else is going with a net difference of 2" between front and rear. With the towing I plan to do, I don't really want a block in the rear...

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for all the info
    I picked the truck up today and I'm really impressed with it so far.

    In looking at the wheel wells, I'm starting to wonder if the 2.5" front spacer is even necessary.... Does anyone know if a 275/70/18 will fit without any lift? It looks like it will, but I would hate to have them installed and find out they rub somewhere.

    I actually have the 2.5" spacers and an appointment to have it installed tomorrow. But I used a floor jack to raise the front of the truck by 2.5" and it looks like it would almost have a little bit of a "reverse rake".

    I'm really laboring over this... I would HATE to pay the $400 install charge only to find out I didn't like the looks of it. Ugh.

    Thanks Sean. I looked at that thread. Tons of good information, and I bet it took csuviper a looooong time to put all that together.
    The only problem is, I didn't see any information for 3rd Gen Tundras?

    In case it helps anyone else, here is what a 2015 looks like with a 2.5 spacer in the front and nothing in the back. 275/70/18 BF Goodrich AT KO (the old tread pattern).

    Update... With just the 2.5" spacer in the front, the nose was about 1/4" higher than the back. So this morning I added a 1.5" block in the back.

    Here are some updated pictures. It looks much more proportional now, with just a slight rake to it. Only bad thing is that I don't think it'll fit in the garage if I install my roof rack. Dang it.

    Hello this is what I did. Wernt with a 3/2 leveling kit just didn't want it looking too high. Slapped on Toyo open country MT's 33x12.50 On 20" Xd Rockstar II's. The ride hieghts is perfect for me and love the stance I got. Huge difference from stock. The last pic is stock rims and tires plasti dipped.

    pmedic048 you plan on installing fender flares or no? I just installed my Moto Metal 18x9 with +18 offset and 285/75/18 tires.

    3" front spacer lift and 2" rear spring lift. Moto rims 18x9 with 18+ offset wrapped with 295x70x18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2, K&N drop in fliter and G-Tek SABM.
    Being the wheels stuck out about 1/2 - 3/4 of inch I was going to but after going off road and seeing that it wasn't kicking up mud on the side of the truck I decided not to put flares on.

    What was the brand you used for this leveling setup? I am really interested in it for my truck. Seems that this kit would be stout.
