    Just bought my first Tundra (moved from Taco) and ready to customize. Want to build a balance of daily driver and capable off-road exploring vehicle. Look forward to tapping the wealth of knowledge here!
    First question; for on road comfort and off-road capability - better with 3:1 leveling kit and upgrade shocks or go 3" suspension lift?

    Thanks and some beautiful rigs on this site that are inspirational!

    A little of this and a little of that.
    Welcome from Las Vegas.

    Go with the @Toytec Lifts Boss kit. It’ll give you 3” plus coil overs at a reasonable price.

    Welcome Phil. There are a lot of variables, budget, use, etc. I opted for extended travel C/Os and bypass rears, new UCAs. I seriously doubt a typical 3-1 could measure up on or off road. And, mine ended up being really similar, a little taller, to a 3-1.
