    Minor stuff- Tint, rear sway bar , pedal commander, TRD drop in filter DD Exhaust, Bilstein 6112/5160, stealth 32” lightbar, Cali Raised Offroad fog light replacements.
    Shortly down the line I’ll be pulling a toy hauler (25-28’) and i’d like to level the front 2” or so (enough for some beefier AT tires without cutting etc) and add some bags in the rear.

    Who’s done this and how do you like it?

    Thanks

    Yea Balboa I have the same truck. Just took three short trips with my 28'TT to the Dez. It rides great but it's not perfectly level from from to back. I also have a high quality weight dist. hitch which I know helps. Have heard great things about the Firestone bags and I think I'm leaning in that direction. Not sure about the front end being raised.

    I’m running the airlift 5000 bags with internal jounce bumper. When I hit large bumps the rear feels more stiff but 95 percent of the time they don’t affect the ride.
