    I'm new to Tundra and this site. just got a 15 Crewmax TSS black package. Is the leveling kit better or is the 3/1 lift better for a daily driven truck?. I drive 50 miles round trip to work.

    Welcome Both are fine. 3/1 with new longer struts or coilovers in the front will give you the better ride.

    Check out the lift links in my sig for more information.

    Thank you for all the info. Just trying to give the Beast the best look and ride, while not spending unreasonably

    Some people call 3/1 as a leveling kit. The boundary between a leveling kit and a lift seems quite unclear.

    I would personally avoid spacer lift/leveling kit. I've seen people breaking their front struts due to spacers more frequently than I would like.

    3/1 lift, level. 1" block in the rear and 3" strut spacer in the front. Its okay for the time being but I'm saving for coilovers, diff drop and upper control arms so that I can push it closer to 4" of lift in the front and have better component's/ride. 35" tires in the picture. It is necessary to get 1.25" spacers if you keep your TSS wheels and put 295/65/20 (35" tire).

    3/1 lift. 20x9 Method standards, machine face. 305/55/20 nitto trail grapplers
    295/65/20 on a 3/1 lift? How much did it rub?

    I had to remove the front lower fender liner that went on the bumper and of course modify the skid plate. Besides that it would rub the sway bar at full lock, that's why I went with the 1.25" bolt on wheel spacers. Once I put those I had to remove the rear mud flap but now zero rubbing. I can't speak to if it would rub the stock bumper, the metal tabs sticking out, because I installed a NFAB front bumper before the spacers.
