    Thanks bro. Just purchased a 2012 double cab, I want to put rims and tires on it, I want it to look beefy, but I don't want to put a lift kit or level kit on it, I'm pretty novice when it comes to this kinda stuff. Lol. Any suggestions??

    I'm thinking of putting a level kit on my 2012 dbl cab, 2 wheel drive tundra. What's the difference between a 3/1 and a 3/2 lift???

    So do you mean 1 inch block, like spacers?? And that would be in the front correct??? Any photos that would help me immensely.

    1" block, yes. I'll see what photos I can dig up.
    There can be spacers up front, or suspension instead...which is my preference.

    3" front and 1" or 2" in the rear.
    3/1 should make the truck level.
    3/2 the rear will be higher than the front but not as bad as it is stock.
