    Debating on leveling my 18, just wondering if anyone has any before/after pics of their truck with just a leveling kit with stock wheels. Just wanting to see if you can truly tell the difference with the leveling kit or if I should just keep that money in my pocket. My truck is a glorified grocery getter, so really would only be doing it for looks over making space for bigger tires, etc.

    I'm absolutely no help here. But wanna say I read all these leveling/lift posts and I get a little depressed. I couldn't lift my truck and inch and still be able to get in my garage, I went up from 32 to 33 inch tires and I've reached my max. Coming from a 99 tacoma with 6 inches of lift and then an 08 tacoma with 3 inches....i kind of miss it
    Maybe I'll lower the tundra some day lol

    I'd say it's about 74-75 inches high at the opening. I once drove in with the sunroof tilted up and it made it but I almost shit myself seeing the clearance out if the corner of my eye.

    Now I'm curious. Going to measure now

    Well that made no sense. 74 or 75 and I wouldn't fit. Tundra is 76ish tall.
    My garage opening is a few C hairs under 78"

    I like this alot. Looks sharp, and I'm thinking this will keep the wife happy she doesn't have to jump into the truck if I go full out lift. This was what I was imagining in my head it would look like. Thanks for sharing. Hows the ride? You happy with?

    I have been thinking about doing something similar for my 2017 Tundra. What was the change to the overall height of your truck with the front leveling kit and the switch to 295/70/18?

    Yes, interested in this too as i’d like level mine and put 295/70/18 on but I need to fit in a parking garage with a 6’ 8” clearance.

    I don't have any of mine with the stock size tires, but you get the difference. I had 275/70/18 (33's) on stock, then with a 2" leveling kit, then 2" leveling kit and new wheels/tires, still 275/70/18.
