    Ok,

    I have a a new set of #2 Coachbuilder shackles for about a 1.25" rear lift! The #1 CB shackles will get me .65" in the rear and probably get level with them. I can put either in but still contemplating on which one is the best!

    I love the stance have now with almost level but a hair up in the rear!

    I am finally about done with my suspension!

    2017 Tundra CM 5.7 4X4

    Here's what I added

    Bilstein 6112 - top setting close to 2.75 lift up front!
    Bilstein 5160 - rear
    SCS-SR8 18's
    Nitto Ridge Grapplers 295/70/18

    My use, 99% on road, no heavy hauling but "maybe" tent and bed rack in future! Long road trips no and then!

    Any input thanks all!


    Michael

    Here's 1.5". And my front is 3" so the 1.25" should be similar to this. But I like rake, .65" would be way too low for me. Especially when I put a rack/rtt on.

    Because 6112's are made for the front and 5160's are made for the rear, both are Bilstein brand!

    The END!

    Nice!!! Gotta feel good to have one thing done and done!!

    My suspension won't be done until I go up to 295/70's! 1.5 of lift in the back would be too much on 275/70's IMO

    So in the meantime....plans include wheels, aux backup lights, steps and tonneau cover! maybe a bed rack to go over the tonneau at one point.

    Nice setup LAW,

    The Extand 2.0 tri fold is what I'm but probably have to do a retractable, thinking but wonder if it would open/flip with a BAMF rack!

    Dave will tell you 1.25-1.75 rake to ensure traction control works properly.

    If you never put anything in the bed go +1. If you like the bulldog look when you do go +1.

    When are you getting the bed rack & RTT? Remember my experience...fully loaded and dropping ledges will flatten your springs, therefore your rake will go away. Just my .02

    You'll have to ask @jlee to modify it if you want a foldable
