    I think the rubbing I experienced is typical of this size tire and wheel. Removed front and rear mud flaps this cut down on most of the rub. Just rubs in front of wheel in reverse, will do wheel well mod when I get time.

    Skidsmarks, could you provide the total height of your Tundra. I would love to know if this set up will fit in my garage that's at 68 inches. I personally think my garage is somewhat low really. Your Moto Metals are really nice looking. Wonder if they'd look as good as yours on my Blue Ribbon Metallic 2015 Tundra CC.

    Don't forget to re tighten the u bolts to the plates after a couple rides and again after about a week or two. Had to do the same after installing 1" blocks myself.

    The Tundra is well over 68" stock. I think you may be out of luck getting into the garage. My truck sits about 79"

    Yeah, that's a bummer. Guess I better get my mind to wander into a diff approach. Thank you for the quick response Skidmarks. Maybe I can redo my garage, LOL.

    Your garage is only 5'8" tall?!? I would have to lean over 6" to walk through it. Unreal.

    The bolts on those Bushwackers fender flares match up nicely with your MotoMetal wheels. Man your Tundra looks shhhwweet. Your set up "Bilstein 5100 middle setting, w/ 2 CB shims per side 1.5" toytec aluminum blocks", are those 5100's all around or a set from Toytec. What are the part numbers or such for the shocks if you have that info? B/C after looking at your Truck it's exactly what I'm looking to do to mine. My wife is only 5'3" so I can't go to high on the lift. Skidmarks, I apologize, my garage is not 68", it's 82 1/2". I was way off, b/c I was downing some Yuengling beers and didn't remember the number correctly, so yeah, looks like I can do this. I was looking at the Toytec Boss Suspension Kit. But this will do fine. I'll have to start a build in this fall. But anyway Skidmarks, your Truck looks really nice.

    Thank you sir. I bought most of my parts separately through vendors offering discounts at the time. Memorial day had some zingers. 4 wheel parts online is a good vendor. I had to contact David from coachbuilder personally to buy the shims and such. The shocks you can get a set of 4 for about $375.
    Good luck
