    Welcome and congrats. Depends on how deep you dig in your pockets. I have an 08 and are in the process of leveling mine with 2.5 front end kit, nothing in the back. I can't see low profile tires, but that's me. Leveling it gives you a little room to grow. The options are endless. There's a lot of owner's on here with awesome set ups. Good luck and let's see some pics

    Thanks well actually my tundra came with the off road package and I'm more likely to put some 20s and 35 with 6" lift but since the tundra just has 20k miles on it I'm scared that loses the factory warranty due to the lift kit! Has this happen to anyone?

    Congrats and welcome! As for losing the factory warranty after adding a lift kit, I believe this may vary from dealer to dealer. The dealer where I purchased mine works directly with 4 Wheel Parts & another shop so they informed me that the aftermarket upgrades that I got during purchase would be covered by the warranty, since they would have one of those shops doing the install of the upgrades. Your best bet may be just to call the dealer ship(s) in your area to see what their "policy" is as far as the factory warranty and lift kits, etc...goes.

    There are plenty of pre-runner, lifted trucks out there.

    It's nice to clear high flood areas, go around someone when needed, etc..

    Just do what you think feels right, and not what others think.

    Welcome to the forum. There are some sweet lifted 4x2s around. My vote is against huge wheels with thin tires. I always feel like those tires belong to a bicycle. But then again, it's what you want that counts.

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    I don't think concerned is the right word as there isn't a problem. There is just an opportunity to make your tundra better.
    Only do the large wheels and low pros if you put hydrolics on and plan to hold your gun sideways with a bandana on your head :)

    4x2s would be great with long travel as you don't have to worry about front cvs.

    6" and 35-37s was my dream if I had enough money. Looks really good. But need to spend the money on good coilovers and new rear leafs to make it right.

    FEARS:
    You want to upgrade your vehicle with aftermarket equipment, but you’re worried about putting the vehicle’s warranty at risk. It’s no wonder. How many times have you heard someone at a automobile dealership say that unless the dealer installs your aftermarket equipment you will automatically void your new car warranty? This common misconception has been repeated often enough to be widely believed – though it is completely false.FACT:
    Dealers don’t like warranty work, because it pays less than normal repair work. By promoting the myth that aftermarket equipment automatically voids warranties, some dealers avoid such low-paying work. Instead, they attempt to charge customers the prime service rate for work which is rightfully done under warranty.

    THE TRUTH:
    Most vehicle owners are not aware they are protected by federal law: the Magnuson-Moss Warranty – Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act of 1975. Under the Magnuson-Moss Act, aftermarket equipment which improves performance does not void a vehicle manufacturer’s original warranty, unless the warranty clearly and conspicuously states that aftermarket equipment voids the warranty. Most states have warranty statutes, as well. Which provide further protections for vehicle owners.In other words, that means a dealer can’t wiggle out of his legal warranty obligation merely because you install aftermarket equipment. To find out if any aftermarket equipment automatically voids your vehicle’s warranty, check the owner’s manual. It is likely the language you are looking for appears under a heading such as “What Is Not Covered” Although the language seems negative, remember your vehicle manufacturer is simply saying he does not cover the aftermarket products themselves. He is not saying that the products would void the vehicle warranty.

    VEHICLE DEALERS OBLIGATIONS:
    Suppose your modified vehicle needs repairs while still under warranty. Without analyzing the true cause of the problem, the dealer attempts to deny warranty coverage. He made his decision simply based on the fact that you’ve installed aftermarket equipment – a convenient way to dodge low-paying warranty work.An example of how ridiculous this can get is the man who was denied warranty coverage by a dealer on his power door locks, because he had improved his exhaust system! Sounds nuts? It really happened – because that man did not know his rights and challenge the dealer’s decision.Fact: A dealer must prove – not just say – that aftermarket equipment caused the need for repairs before he can deny warranty coverage on that basis.

    YOUR RIGHTS:
    Point out to the dealer the provision of the Magnuson-Moss Act- Require that he explain to you how the aftermarket equipment caused the problem. If he can’t – or his explanation sounds questionable – it is your legal right to demand he comply with the warranty.Fact: If you are still being unfairly denied warranty coverage, there is recourse. The Federal Trade Commission, which administers the Magnuson-Moss Act, monitors compliance with warranty issues. Direct complaints to the FTC at (202) 326-3128.This is the actual language of the act:No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer’s using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this sub-section may be waived by the Commission if:1. the warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and2. the Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest.The district courts of the United States shall have jurisdiction of any action brought by the Attorney General (in his capacity as such), or by the Commission by any of its attorneys designated by it for such purpose, to restrain (A) any warrantor from making a deceptive warranty with respect to a consumer product, or (B) any person from failing to comply with any requirement imposed on such person or pursuant to this chapter or from violating any prohibition contained in this chapter.

    --- MAGNUSON MOSS WARRANTY ACT ---

    US Code - Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) . For best results, consider working with performance-oriented dealerships with a proven history of working with customers. If your vehicle manufacturer fails to honor emission/warranty claims, contact EPA at (202) 260-2080 orwww.epa.gov . If federal warranty protection is denied, contact the FTC at (202) 326-3128 orwww.ftc.go
