    Good Morning,

    Has anyone had to adjust their headlights after lifting their trucks? My headlights haven't been the best. I want to upgrade to LED. But don't want to be that a**hole blinding everyone.

    Yes, I’ve adjusted my headlights down slightly with my previous retros and now with my leds. How big is your lift?

    I only did the rough country 3" leveling kit. But for some reason the truck raised up a Lot. HAHAHA
    I am new to this. This is my first truck EVER. GO BIG OR GO HOME RIGHT?

    I have 8” of lift. Does your tundra have adjustable headlights? 3” of life shouldn’t be blinding people.

    Mine is leveled and I am at the lowest the 1-5 setting(1794) can go and I feel like I'm still high. Is there any other adjustment someone can make?

    Ha! Another great thing about this new Tundra world I just entered.

    @2015Crewmax should still get an ‘18...

    Solves his LED headlight problem, and that sounds like reason enough to me!

    The one thing the 18 can't do that the 2gen can is make the rear seat a recliner!:p

    As for your question, I have a 3” lift, and I keep mine pointed down about halfway. It’s easy to check. Just park behind a smaller car and adjust until they aren’t hitting their mirrors. They all have the adjuster in the cabin, right? Both my 2011 and my 2017 SR5 do.

    Now, I have a question of my own: Who gives a shit if the back seats recline? I have spent zero time riding back there. That’s my kids’ problem. Those seats could be made out of a wooden bench for all I care.
    Surely you guys aren’t letting others drive your trucks?

    By the way, are you changing the assembly, or just wanting to put leds in your stock housing? That’s going to blind people no matter what you do.

    I originally put led lamps in my stock housings. They were very bright, and I was getting people flashing their lights at me constantly.
    LED and HID lamps are best suited for projector headlights. It focuses the beam to be more manageable. The stock reflector housings allow the light to go all over the place.

    How old are they? Mine are 12, 17, and 20. I’ve found that at 11-12 years old they become quite surly and belligerent. They were all super cool when they were younger. They’ve grown salty with age, like their mother. Their comfort is of no concern to me.

    (Totally kidding. I love my kids very much. The thing about getting surly when they’re older is accurate though.)
