    Replaced window tint, added a tool box and replaced interior lights to led, as well as, changed headlines to led.
    Hi,
    I have several questions.....
    I was thinking about replacing the stock fog lamps with 3.5" piaa led white fog lights. Any comments?

    As well, I am thinking about led "grill" yellow Piaa light bar.
    I believe Piaa makes good products? If the light bar is recessed into the grill, is a single row led bar best?

    Also, I am thinking about a 2" front light. Who makes the best lift/leveling kits?

    Thanks,
    Tommy

    Welcome. I had a 2010 Tundra prior, and I bought a 3" leveling kit from LowRange Off Road. Loved it. High quality products.

    Welcome to Tundras! PIAA always had good quality stuff, though they don't seem as popular as they used to be. There's a lot of competition in the LED world.

    For a nice clean look for fogs, check out Rigid SAE fogs with the Rigid fog light brackets. If you don't plan to drive with them on on the roadway, you can put the off road LED cubes from Rigid (and probably other companies) in there. Baja Designs also sells bright lights to throw in there.

    www.theretrofitsource.com also sells Morimoto LED fogs that are plug and play. Some guys on here have them. They also have LED bars, though they don't seem very popular, they are only single row bars.

    I still have stock fogs, but someday would like to go with the Rigid setup or something from Baja Designs.

    @Baja Designs also has a ton of LED bar options. From all I have heard they are top notch.

    Welcome from CO! For a light bar with a solid throw pattern and relibiiity, I would look at Rigid Industies or @Baja Designs
    I have a 30" Baja single row in my valance.
    Reference a leveling kit - why not just go 3/1? If that's the case, I run the BOSS kit which is specifically valves for the tundra for mainly daily driving but also can certainly handle some off-road time.

    Welcome from Oregon!! I put the Rigid Dually fog lights on my 2014. They sell a kit that fits directly into the factory holes in the bumper. Nice look, great fit and finish. They are a little pricey, but Rigid makes a great product. Definitely worth the $$$.

    Welcome from Ga. If you are wanting to just level it, I'd also look into Bilstein 5100s adjustable front shocks. If you set those to the middle setting, you'll get a tad over 1.5" of front lift (leaving you with about 1" of rake), perfect if you tow/haul regularly. The top setting will net you about 2.5" of front lift and get you level, but visually, it will look nose high, especially when you tow/haul.
