    Just Bought a 2012 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Texas Edition. Loving it so far!
    Trying to figure out what size and type of lift it has on it? Looks to be taller than stock but have not been able to find stock specs.
    78 or 79 inches to the roof, with 18 inch wheels and 285/65/18 Nito Terra Grappler All Terains.
    Here are a few pics.

    I just about have the same truck. Same year, TX Edition, same interior. Just grey instead of black.
    Awesome truck have fun with it!
    I'm sure others will chime in and I'm not good at judging what lift is on there, but maybe 2.5" up front with a 1" rear?? Just a shot in the dark.

    Sean, do you know where i can find the stock ride height for a 2012 4x4, to compare?
    I found one thread on this site, that showed a stock truck with stock wheels and tires, but it didnt saythe size of the tires or wheels.
    The Texas edition came with 20" wheels but the PO has switched to 18's.
    I wonder if maybe the tortion bars have been cranked? Are there front and rear adjustables? I gave not had time to investigate yet.
    Texas Edition package came with billet Grill, WeatherTec floor mats, side tube Nerf Bars and 20" wheels.

    Welcome and congrats. That's beauty. I would say smaller spacer in the front. Could you take a picture above the coil/strut assembly?

    First off thanks for all the compliments and the welcome. I look forward to playing with this truck and making it mine, for quite a while.

    Ok, so I have had a look around and i just dont see any evidence of any sort of lift or level kit, that has been previously installed, or maybe i just dont know what i am looking at.
    To me it looks like it sits higher than stock, especially compared to the #1 picture in the thread that csuviper posted. To me, mine looks more like the #2 picture with the level kit? IDK?!
    Any way here are the measurements that i got.

    Top of tire, 18" American Outlaw wheels w 285/65/18 Nitto Terra Grappler All Terain=31"
    Front Fender well over center of wheel= 40"
    Front fender /tire gap = 9"
    Rear Fender well= 42.5"
    Rear fender/tire gap= 10.75
    Top of roof(best i can tell) = 78"
    Top of front bumper= 33.5"
    Bottom of front bumper= 16"
    Top of bed rail, over rear tire center= 58"
    Center of hitch= 20"
    Bottom of frame under front door=16"
    Top of rear bumper= 32"
    Bottom of rear Diff= 8.5"

    Thanks for the help.

    Ok, so after doing some searching and some looking under the truck, looks like i do have a lift and it is an OME 3" lift with Dakar leaf springs. the springs have a number printed on it, CS055R.

    Yes, Sean266, there are a couple in the post just above this last one.
    When i looked up the kit and read the discription, if i understood it right, i think it said that the kit included a diff drop, but not 100% sure. I will have to investigate that a lill further. It did say that the springs were optional, i think?

    Ok, so now that i know that the truck acually has a lift kit on it and i know what it is. I will start another thread and do some searching to figure out what i may be able to add, or do to get a couple more inches of height.

    I just bought the same set up minus the DAKAR springs, which I may still pull the trigger on. OME has a newer version for the shocks/coil overs called NitroCharger Sports which I bought today. I recommend you call ToyTec and tell them about your current setup and explain what you want.
