    Hello, I'm new here. After probably 20 hours of searching online and measuring/comparing photographs, I've decided I need help (probably in many ways, but for now just with a tire/wheel/clearance question). I recently purchased a used 2011 Tundra CrewMax Texas Edition. It will be arriving on or before Thursday. It has a leveling and/or level/lift kit, but I have no idea what size. It has it's stock 305/50/20 tires, so I should be able to determine the lift of the front and back by measuring the distance from the top of the tire to the wheel well. However, no matter how hard I search, I cannot find anywhere that gives me the original distances prior to lift. Does anyone know the exact height of the wheel wells and or bumpers on a 2011 Texas Edition?

    Wait for @csuviper to respond. He most likely knows or can find out. Welcome by the way from CO.

    What are your plans? New larger tires?

    32" diameter tires. Looks to have a rear lift because of the gap. I would suspect 3/1 or close to that. Would need a pic of the top of the front Coilover and pic of the rear leaf spring where it attaches to the axle to be sure.

    I see rear blocks for lift with factory shocks. Need to see pics of the coil over set up up front, not the bottom.

    Yep blocks in the back. Look to be 1 to 1.5". Your looking at most likely a 3" front spacer with the rear block. All on stock shocks.

    Thinking an upgrade is in order. At least shocks.

    So what is your plan now with knowing the size of lift it has? Planning larger tires?

    Ahhh Thank you. That was my closest guess by looking at the pics, but it just look so much higher with the gap. When I get the truck (hopefully by Thursday), I can get better pics of the front set-up. Then maybe I can even identify the brand. I am definitely going larger. I believe it was this forum where I saw that if I have a 3/1, I can only go to a 33" tire unless I do some trimming. I don't plan on doing any trimming, so I guess 33's it will be!

    What would the upgraded shocks do for me?

    Go with front Coilovers and eliminate the block. I have the 3/1 Toytec ultimate Bilstein kit. I like it and haven't had any issues at all. @ToyTec Lifts is a vendor on this forum.

    I thought only the rear had the block and the front likely has spacers?

    Sorry yes that is what I meant. Eliminate the front spacer. Rear blocks are fine. That is what I have. Keeps the same feel as if the block wasn't there. Haven't had any issues that the Tacomas have with takeoff shutter.

    I guess I will have to read up a lot more on these lift kits and get a better understanding of them. I knew the block in the springs was part of it, but I dontfully understand the front lift yet. However, I was. Just notified that my truck will be here this evening
