    Anyone notice any difference with the headlights after a front leveling kit install? To me they seem to be aimed higher obviously but aren't these supposed to be auto leveling?

    On another note where do you get the piano black delete cover for the shifter area? I just scratched the hell out of mine and it now looks like shit and it's too hard to keep clean. Is there a reputable source or is at all E-bay stuff?

    The legend has it, that 22+ Tundra has great premium auto leveling headlights that actually work and level by themselves

    So the auto leveling headlights is a myth. They don't work. Maaaaaybe they'll level a tiny little bit for you if you're lucky, but nowhere to actually make it correct level where you won't be blinding everyone.

    I suggest going to dealer, and asking them to re level them for you as you got lift now...

    It's the rear air suspension that's auto leveling so then they say the headlamps are too But just the air suspension levels everything.

    Easy enough to do it your self!
    Turn the screw driver counter clock wise to adjust aim lower.....with a Philips screw driver.

    Yes too bad that's not on the Platinum! Easy enough I'll go the screw driver route or just let it ride maybe 2" isn't enough to get in a twist over but I don't have to look at them oncoming anyway. Thanks everyone!
