    Hello from Indy
    I own a 2016 tundra and want to make suspension upgrades. I would value advise from members who wish to reply. Looking to raise the front 3" and the back around 1 to 2". I am considering coil overs, leafs and CB shackles.
    Thanks, for the help.

    What's your budget and intended use? Options listed in the title are vastly different.

    Intended use - 75% paved roads, some RV hauling, 25% light to moderate off-road.
    I know Kings are high end. What would the Dakar leaf springs do for me?

    dakar springs look great on the 2nd and 3rd gens, but i have no idea how they handle weight... anyone tow with dakars? sounds like you have narrowed it down to the 3 c/o recommendations most of us would give... im partial to ome and toytec boss... have both, love both.

    Like Jberry said, they're all vastly different but mostly pavement I'd go Bulsteins or BOSS from what most people say on this forum.
    Personally, I'm going BOSS within the year. Mostly pavement and some trips to the hunting camp and fishing holes.

    $2000 budget range my vote is Toytec Boss with Total Chaos UCAs and rear shackles as that is what i have done with mine and love it.

    Icon and King are great choices but will extend over your budget with the UCAs i think. Like Jason said, depends on what the intended use is.

    Have not towed with the shackles. Have had a lot of dirt in the back. Sagged like it did with the blocks.
