    Looking at procomp or rough country 6 inch and all the stances have squatting asses... All that money for a lift... The guy at my custom shop has been texting me pictures of lifts he's done on tundras.. On hold for now... Pisses me off because I hate that look

    How’re they lifting the rear on those kits? Blocks, shackles or leaves? It’d be easy enough to add height to make it more level. Also, what size tires are you planning on running?

    The procomp stage II is a AAL with block. I'd be running 35x12.5

    3" level kit, Icon shocks, rear bags S&B CAI, anytime fog lights, LEDs, and...list growing.
    Are you specifically wanting the 6" lift?
    I did a 3" level kit up front and bags on the rear, and changed up the shocks. Wheels are 35's. Super smooth/quiet ride and just the right height IMO.

    If you go to 6", I think I'd go with shackles.

    I am very analytical.... So I find the engineering mind set makes my OCD way worse than it should be on the fine details. Also with getting ready to drop a shit ton of money, I want it right.

    I am thankful my custom shop spoke up... I would have been LIVID when I picked my truck up with a sagging ass...

    So I have a 3/1 block lift and am in the process of converting to a true 3".

    So as of today I have a Tuff country 2" AAL in hand (thank you FedEx and tuff country). Should I do it my self if so someone have advice on how to do it or should I pay a shop?

    Next is UCA, 3" lifted struts (upgrading coils), and rear shocks.

    Gonna build this into a true 3" full suspension system. Eff cutting my cross members and having a saggy ass. Thanks for the insight @aramirez73

    Because it'll make 35's look small. Unless you're willing to go up to 37's, I'd stick with a 3/1 suspension lift. But that's just my opinion, so take that for what its worth.

    Won't 37s require a regear?

    There are guys on here with 37's that haven't, but most seem to plan on doing so.
