    Bought a 2015 Tundra 2 weeks ago and cant tell you enough how impressed I am. Coming from a 2011 Silverado that had the famous burning oil problem. I've already made a few changes to the truck (tow mirrors, smittybilt nerf bars, and in channel vent visors) and am looking to level it soon. Since Im new to Toyota's, any advice on leveling kits or other cool mods Im all ears. Here are some pics.

    Welcome! Nice to hear of someone else enjoying their tundra! Been real happy with my '14, but the mpgs suck with leveling kit and 35" MTs so keep that in mind if you put a lot of miles on.

    Congrats on the purchase and welcome to Tundras.com

    I am still on stock height but if I were to level my truck I would probably go with Bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks (up to 2.5"). If more on a budget the LRO (Low Range Off-Road) 3" level/ lift seems like a cheap way to get some lift. If I had some extra money I would go with a coilover setup in the front.

    I am no suspension expert though!

    Welcome and congrats. Bilstein 5100 is just about the cheapest you could go that lifts your truck reliably. At the highest setting, you get a little less than 3 inches in the front. I love my OME set up, but somewhat more expensive. If adjustability is important to you (OME is a coilover, but not an adjustable one), then you have to pork out some serious $$ for King/Fox/Icon, etc.

    Welcome and congrats on your new Tundra. Looking good! Are the tow mirrors power folding? Just curious because I think I'm going to add them to mine but would love it if they were power folding.

    Unfortunately my truck did not come with power folding mirrors. Toyota does sell the tow mirrors with power fold but they are pricey. A Toyota dealer on ebay has them for just under $800. I paid $390 for mine without power fold.

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    3/1 lift with coliovers is a good lift. Reccomended mfg of struts/shocks/coilovers are Bilstein, OME, fox, king and icon.
