    444D0B69-3C4F-44AF-8AAE-B7E7953D74BE.jpg Installed 3/1 low range off road leveling kit today. I was worried about it messing with the TSS but I haven’t had any problems yet and it looks a lot better. New tires will be installed early next week.

    I've been toying with the idea of leveling. I can't go too tall, or it won't fit in my garage. Looks great!

    Looks good! I went 2/1 with Fox Coilovers and rear spacer with Fox shocks. Got the "please clean sensor" signal on the safety sense yesterday. But it was misting rain.. I hope it was the rain. Bigger tires next!

    Noob question here. Is a "leveling Kit" just for looks or is there a practical reason for these?

    It’s for both the cosmetic appearance and for functionality when venturing off-road(larger suspension kits are more suitable for heavy off-roading).

    I'm either doing the 3/1 or 3/2 leveling kit or the toytec myself but leaning toward the 3/2

    Sorry for not responding to everyone, I have not had any sensor issue the ride feels same as stock. I just put on 295/70/18 COOPER STT PRO’s today. Had to remove the small mud flap behind the front bumper. I’ll take a better picture when it’s sunny it’s hard to appreciate it in this picture.EE449E91-3B62-4517-9996-A18CE8D54E1D.jpg

    She looks great! No rubbing even when backing up? Didn't realize you could fit 295s on there. Are you running any spacers? thanks a bunch

    Little bit of rub backing out of my driveway this morning when I cranked the wheel a lot. I’m going to try to heat up the inner wheel well with a heat gun to reshape it. I will post after solve the problem.

    6112s front (1.9" lift) 3rd setting 5160s rear with Coachbuilder 1" shackle TRD rear sway bar TRD Pro Skid plate- soon to be RCI 2018 LED Headlights 2018 LED fogs Fuel Krank 20x9 wheels +20 offset Nitto Terra Grappler G2 275/60R20 tires
    Looks good! I too had slight problems full crank backing up with 275/60R20s and a 6112/5160 lift level. The front wheel wells have all sorts of unnecessary plastic and clearance reducing junk. I chose to just pull out a screw, push the plastic forward, and reinsert the screw in a new spot. Filled the old hole with some JB weld and voila, no rub. Pretty much same idea as the heat and reshape.

    Rubbing tends to only be full crank backing up and up hill when the front end dips unless you get pretty large tires. Then I imagine you have to do more. Good luck with the fix, it's worth It! I love the look of a leveled Tundra, and that cement color is awesome.

    No rub on control arms or frame. I did put
    1 1/2” wheels spacers behind the factory wheels.

    You still running this?! I just got a 3/2 Readylift kit, 1 1/2 spacers and the same exact tires for my 2018 tundra. Virtually the same exact set up. Just not 3/1 kit. so to know if it still runs great with no run and stuff would be awesome. Thanks
