    Looks great! When you’re looking for what’s rubbing, check the engine skid plate. I had to grind an inch off of mine.

    Thanks for the unsolicited opinion. I'm posting to try and give someone an idea of what it may look like if they're considering doing the same thing.

    This is a forum, I can give my opinion solicited or not...that is the whole point of a forum. I didn't say anything mean. It isn't as though I insulted the truck and said it looked like s**t, or insulted you and called you stupid. I just thought your truck looked awesome before and not so great after. I prefer stock and love the stock wheels that you had as well. Stop being so sensitive.

    Did you do 5100's all around? How do you compare the ride quality to before and after the Bilsteins?

    Looks good! Getting ready to do same on mine. 5100’s all around, front on middle setting. I’m keeping stock tires though (275/65/18).

    Just did the 5100s on the front (middle setting). Tires aren't too loud. Truck seems to accelerate just a tad slower (feels a little heavier to me). Ride is smooth and I enjoy sitting a few inches higher. My work truck is a 3/4 ton Dodge. I always felt like I was sitting low when in the Tundra.

    Great looking rig! I’m SSM biased though. Mine came stock with 285/55-20’s and I love it. I like the stock rake as I do tow with it and it sits near level with the boat hooked up.
