    I'm debating the lift. I wanna stay low enough to not cut or have a bad angle on the CV. The 3/1 looks good and just wanna get a good idea on it. Plus its cheaper and still with full warranty. 35" looks to big . 33 looks good. Just want a mental image.

    3 inch lift with 33's looks like it skipped leg day. Completely anorexic.
    And no...you don't get full warranty. Anything you replace and any component Toyota feels like was affected by the lift they will deny warranty claims. This can include CVs, CV boots, wheel bearings, ball joints, tie rods, driveline vibrations...the list goes on.

    Obligatory "I void warranties" pictures

    King coilovers set at 3" of lift and TC 3/4" lift shackles with king smooth bodies in the rear. Sitting on 35's

    Thats a really nice set up. King shocks are pricey. Worth it but pricey .And whats king smooth bodies? just a longer strut?

    Our trucks don't use struts. Front is a coilover (coil over shock) and rear is a leaf springs with a shock. I said smooth bodies to point out it does not have bypass valves.
    I have future designs to stuff a 12" bypass shock to allow more fine grain shock tuning than just internal valving.

    Here is my 2015 TRD Offroad CM with the Readylift 3x2 installed by my Toyota dealer which keep factory warranty. I went with Nitto Trail Grapplers on the stock TRD 18 inch wheel, Had to trim the skid plate 1/2 inch on each side and the A arms sets very close to the sidewalls but no rubbing anywhere. These tires 295x70x18 are 34.54 inch high by 11.77 wide looks perfect to me. great ride and handles well on dry and wet pavement and not loud on road.

    No - not the wheel well. There's a skid plate under the front center of the truck (really it's more of a splash guard because it's very thin). When you turn your wheels to full lock, the inside of the tire will make contact with it. My tires barely rubbed it, so I went out to a parking lot, turned the tires until they made contact, got out and marked the area with a piece of chalk (soapstone). Back at home, I used a cut-off wheel on a side grinder and cut off a small corner of the skid plate. Probably a piece about 1 square inch - not much at all. Now I can turn fully lock-to-lock without any rubbing.

    53 flattie is right I didn't cut mine just took vise grips and bent the ends up and back toward the engine , As far as the ride didn't change only a little louder tire hum on road all mud tires produce this the nitto's are really quite compared to most other brands. This is a very popular mud tire and after 3000 miles I see why, will definitely buy these again when this set wears out. if you don't plan on off roading much the READYLIFT is a great leveling kit, My Toyota dealer will not install any other brand, just check with you're area Toyota dealers I'm sure one offers this install retaining your factory warranty. Good luck

    The lift is great. It is a spacer up front with a diff drop spacer as well. The rear is a block. If I did more aggressive 4wheeling, I would have gone a different route. This suites me perfect. I pull a 32' foot trailer full of sleds and my family are avid campers. Some of the places we go, we need the extra clearance and 4 wheel drive. The ride is a little more rough than stock due to the tires and I get a little more lean in turns, not bad though. It is a truck, its not supposed to ride like a cadillac. I have 33's on now, I didn't have to remove any plastic. I know you can fit 35's, but some plastics might have to be removed. Im happy with the 33's, I have 1" spacers on order now to get a the "tucked" look eliminated. Down the road when I can save a few bucks, rims and bigger tires will come.

    I'm having a similar problem. Went with the Dealer installed ProComp (not sure of exact nomenclature) who stated it was about a 3.5" leveling... whatever that means. They just mentioned "warranty" and blah blah blah, so I shut up and said "ok". Anything around 4" with any decent height tire wouldn't fit in my parking garage at work. :-(.

    My problem, is the my TSS SR5 2016 Crewmax came with 20" upgrades (I would have rather stock with less price) but there's little to no information out there on the rims. I doubt they're offset, but I have no clue how wide I can go. I'd like it to stick out an inch or more/be even with the wheel flares but I'm guessing the only way to know what can be done is take it up to a local shop to review how wide I can go and likely cut out what needs to be done to avoid rub.

    If anyone has any idea what those rim specks are on the 2016 Tundra SR5's (20" upgrade), I'd be a happy listener. I've searched for a while on them, even asked my dealer who is "getting back with me".

    @mdavis and others. You're awesome man. I'm stuck I believe at the leveling lift plus decent tires and even the dealer had a large ??? over the top of their head. I'll likely have to cut for a 12.5 tire but the gain is too much to not try. ;-) Thanks again!

    one thing i'm curious about with 35's is how much the truck notices the extra size and weight it has to spin? they definitely look the part when paired up with a 3" lift.
