    Icon 3.5/3 lift, 20” KMC XD wheels on 285/65/20’s.
    They can go to hell. I’ve had my PCS issues for 13,000 miles and 6 visits to service before it was lifted. Even filed the first buyback claim before the lift. No way am I passing responsible to myself now that it’s lifted. I don’t know how they think liability is transferred now that the truck is lifted. Issues were present way before.

    Mine is not lifted or leveled, just a larger stock tire. Every now and again the sensor goes bonkers, lights up my dash, but hasn't slammed on the brakes yet. The warranty work is scheduled for my first oil change, but this whole thing pisses me off. The PCS has been doing this shit from day one, and the "turn it off" option would be fine if they want to compensate me for the money I spent on a feature that is seemingly faulty.

    Strongly considering something different in terms of brand for the next 4-wheeled machine....

    I've had mine hit the brakes a few times on its own before I had the recall done. Mostly during a curve for a four lane highway headed home. It seems a car, going in the same direction as I am, but in the other lane than I am. That car is actually a head of me, but in the lane beside me. We start the curve and the sensor I guess just points straight and doesn't realize it's a curve. It sees said other car and freaks out. Lights up, beeps, and brakes. Had it happen plenty of times. I've also had it randomly beep but not brake.

    Got the recall done and haven't had that happen yet but I have had it come up with a message saying that the front camera wasn't working. No rain, no snow, no dirt, not dark, no direct sunlight. Just turned onto another road and there came the message. It went away on its own though shortly.

    So- I’m at the dealer now. They spotted my lift when I pulled it in and had me sign the “Non-Toyota-Approved Modification” form, and checked off the lift and tire boxes. Manager says when he gives my keys back, just turn the PCS back on and he’ll even show me how if needed. Said he would not put any sticker on the dash.
    He said they mod trucks before they sell them and will cover all of this if they sell with a lift, etc. and not put stickers on either. I do have to come back next week for the foam sealant piece they said they can’t order ahead of time- they are ordered per each inspection. They also covered a pre 12,000 mile alignment even though he said he wasn’t supposed to, since I modified the front suspension. Said he’d “eat a shit sandwich” on it, but didn’t care. Good dealership experience!!

    Just contacted my dealer and they ran my VIN and said no recall or anything is necessary for my vin.
    Given that information, when I install my Bilstein 6112 and rear shocks and shackles and new wheels and tires should or will I still need a recalibration done for the system? Or is three inches that happy spot (that’s what she said?!)

    Technically if you change height of vehicle yes you need a recalibration. Whether or not it will give you issues without recalibrating is a crapshoot. If you're just leveling I haven't heard too many complaints. Also my buddy was a Toyota master tech up until a couple months ago and he said most techs dont really know how to recalibrate that system for a lift. Apparently they aren't trained on that procedure which is part of the reason Toyota probably doesnt want to dick around with making promises for fixing issues on modified trucks. Keep it simple.

    Thank you sir. I will do the suspension lift (total of three inches and level in the rear) and see what happens for a little bit. If it gets crazy, I guess I will do the recal and keep this thread posted on how it goes.

    As said already, a level should not present issues (1.9" 6112 is working great for me).

    When I was researching, several sources suggested keeping the bow lower or level to the stern. Ymmv

    Same set up with 295's ....checked lift and tire size box on the form but I didn't sign. Maybe they missed that!! I even had the ARES garnish on my pro grill and they didn't care... Turned the PCS back on and drove home...I think they did the sealant but didnt do any recalibration that I am aware of.
