    Hello, just found this site Yesterday. Thanks for having a site full of info. I have just installed Ranchhand brand bumpers front and rear on my 2016 SR5 crew cab with 5.7 engine. I was wondering what would be the best leveling or lift kit, I tow a boat occasionally, but no off road just want a smooth ride. Thanks for any input

    Welcome to the forum.

    If your truck is 4x4, OME is a good option. They have coil springs specifically manufactured (longer length) for heavy bumpers.

    Not a 4 wheel drive, budget is open up to about $1000. Could spend more if needed but hoping to keep it under $1000.

    Bilstein 6112s can be had for about $650. They are a pair of two beefy front shocks with height adjustment and matched springs. Hard to beat for the money and have a lifetime warranty.

    You can always upgrade the rear shocks later if you decide with their 5160s.

    I covered all 4 corners for under 1k shipped. Better ride on and off road for sure. I beat mine up pretty good.

    I don't have a lift, but if I were to give her a little height some day, this is the route I plan to take.

    Bilstein seems to be more off road is this the case??? My wife and I go everywhere in my Tundra, I pull my boat to go fishing but my off roading days are long gone. I am looking to level off the front end with a little lift and also (hopefully) improve on what is a pretty smooth ride .... I thank all of ya'll for info so far and am still doing a little research when I can have been very very busy
