    Nice truck can you explain what you mean by shims on the driver and passenger side? I’ll be doing the 6112/5160 when they become available again just want to get everything I need
    Thank you

    Basically a round metal disc that sits on top of your strut. It gives an additional half inch of lift. I used the coach builder ones.

    Some tundra has driver side lean from beginning so if you add shim on driver side, usually take care the lean. Mine was leaning so I added 1 shim on driver side

    For those running at 1.9 with no diff drop, do you have any issues with CV boot leakage/tearing?

    I wouldn't worry about that. The TRD pro had 2" of lift in the front without any silly diff drop spacers, and it comes from Toyota that way. So in sure at 1.9 your safe. Heck probably even at 2.5 since it is only .5 more

    Anybody else feel/think that 1.9 setting looks little nose high? Thinking about adding +1 shackle

    Pro has 2” lift and has no drop. You’re not going to have any issues with 1.9”. I’m at 1.9 on 6112s and the axle angle barely moved from stock

    I've been driving on my 6112's since Sept of 2016 and still love them. I went with the middle setting and added 5100's in the rear.

    Every truck is different so to speak. I went with them at 2.5 inches. With aftermarket UCAs you can get a lot more caster which helps with wandering at highway speeds.

    I just put 6112s on the top setting without shims over the weekend and gained 3 1/8" lift in the front. Now sits 1"taller in the front but have CB +2 going on tonight. Does this settle down to 2.5" after an alignment and some dive time? I've read conflicting stories...

    I did drive it around the neighborhood to see what all the interest in the brodozer look was but still couldn't figure it out.

    Did you buy preassembled?

    Never seen anything over initial 3” from top setting. I would say you’re going to see some settlement. I imagine at that much height gain your camber is jacked up royally and you need an alignment and some drive time.

    No I assembled them myself. I've read anywhere between 1/8" - 1/4" of settling but never 5/8". Going to add the +2s shortly and then re-measure. I'm just hoping it settles to about 3/4" tail high after everything is done so the radar doesn't start freaking out.

    Awesome, I’m guessing they are the adjustable ones, set to 1”. I have a set of CB+2s that are about 1.25” and trying to get an idea of the rake with 1.9” up front. Thanks!

    Yep. 1 or 1.5”. I’m on the 1” setting and also replaced the leaf spring bushings with polys. Back of the truck is noticeably smoother over daily driving road bumps and off road.

    Just ordered my 6112/5160 official Tundras.com setup.

    Group question for everyone. I am waiting on the next shipment of @SCSPerformance Ray 10's, so that is the wheel I am getting. As for the tires, I think I have it down to the Cooper AT3 XLT. Now, for our setup, I am stuck between these two sizes...

    Cooper AT3 XLT 60,000 Tread Warranty

    285/75/R18 Depth: 34.84, Width 11.5, 10 Ply, 59 Lbs
    295/70/R18 Depth 34.25, Width 12, 10 Ply, 61 Lbs

    Some people say they wish they went bigger than the 285 to the 295, but others say the 295 is too big/wide and needs UCA, CMC, etc. Anyone out there running our setup have any insight on this? I will have the 6112 at 1.9 and the 5160s in the rear plus Coachbuilder +3 shackles in the rear to assist with some additional weight in the back to include a Decked system and a Leitner cargo rack.

    I would set the front at 2.5. 1.9 is going to be tight. I am running 285/70 18 with 2.5 of front lift. I had to remove the front flap on the bumper and push the liner forward.

    Mine looks that way to me at times. I think you and I have the same setup (1.9" with driver side shim, nothing out back).
    I've measured it a couple times, and it is actually .25-.5" rake. Something about the lines of the truck seem to make it look nose high at times.

    I'm also considering adding a shackle for 1" or maybe the Coachbuilder .625". What I'm unsure of is if I will need to replace the 4600's for 5100's to account for extra travel. Will look into that more later on.

    Yep we got same set up. I went ahead and put 5100 on the rear since it wasn’t much more. I don’t think I want shackle that lift up rear much. Maybe 1” @ most.

    Thinking about adding 1” spacer on mine too. Other than that pretty sweet set up and I like it so far as is.

    I have same lift put on this week and fumbling which tire size, Nitto like yours in 285 or the 275. I had tire shop order both so I could see side by side. How is the power MPG and feel with 285. I am going to have our slide in camper in during the summer and driving in mountains. Truck doing well with tire? I know a lot of guys go 35 in and have no problem. Love to hear your feedback. thanks Zach

    From what I remember there is not much weight difference between the 275s and 285s, maybe a few lbs so there shouldn’t be much of a difference. Power wasn’t effected too much however I have since added 488 gears

    Yep I am happy. I installed gears to bring power back when towing. My truck would hunt gears from 6-4 on the highway. Gears improved that and MPG
