    I was talked into buying a set of bilsteins when I lifted a Dodge Ram 1500 but they did not fit. So I have sold the Ram and now have a 2012 Tundra crewcab 4x4. My question is does anyone know if these Bilstein 5100 series 24-185776 will fit the rear of this tundra?
    Ps. I hope to do a 3" lift in the front and 2" in the rear sometime soon.

    Hey fellas, I do allot of highway driving and really the only complaint I can make about my Tundra is the range. Has anyone tried installing a transfer tank in the bed? I see Northern tool has some well built options. Any advice?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Haven't looked it up but was going to say most likely doesn't fit because suspensions are different between the truck mfgrs.
    Looks like bob looked it up to confirm it doesn't fit.
