    Hello! New to the forum and just bought my first Tundra, 2014 Black CM Platinum with 10K miles, and absolutely LOVE it!! I just sold my 4Runner to get this truck and couldn't be happier! The previous owner had done some mods before I got it so I can check some off my list! :) Look forward to reading more topics on here and getting to know other members. Can't wait to do some more mods. Thanks for letting me join!

    I can't quite figure out what type of lift the previous owner has done, is there an easy way to figure that out by looking at it?? The salesman where I bought it at was not much help...I have factory Platinum wheels which the previous owner had part of the wheels painted black, I think it looks pretty good. The tires are Nitto Terra Grapplers A/T 305/55/20.

    Take a look up under there and see if you see any markings. If you don't see anything, take a pic and post it here and maybe one of us will be able to spot it.

    Wouldn't surprise me if its just a 3" spacer lift, a 305/55/20 is only a 33x12.

    I'll try and get a photo and upload it soon...I'm no expert in suspensions/lifts, but I'd agree with you that it seems to be a spacer lift. Everything else in there looks stock to me.

    A nice welcome to you Lynch, from Maryland. Oh yeah, another Platinum owner, nice truck. Spacer lift you say, hmmm. You'll find a lot of info here about your current lift. These threads will definitely have you thinking and wanting to make some changes for sure. This fall I will be starting a build myself by adding a lift / wheels-n-tires and some mods to my own 2015 Platinum. I need to save up some more dough though. I just bought a LEER cap and set of BedRugs, Husky Xact Contours, tools and parts to last a while. But read on and you'll find there's plenty of wonderful builds, mods, maintenance tips and lots of pics to view.

    Yep, spacer lift in the front and looks like 1.5-2 block in the back. I made that mistake on mine, next big mod I'm doing next is BOSS suspension all around. Wanted wheels, but....priorities!! Rather have a solid suspension than slick wheels (no worries, I'm getting wheels soon after my suspension upgrade!) I'm getting my cake and eating it too!

    Welcome from south La buddy!
