    I have a 2011 Tundra Double Cab
    I tow a 25 ft camp trailer (7000 lbs) with a weight distributing hitch
    The truck tows great No sway problems
    My question is I would like to raise the front of the truck 3 inches to make it level
    Will I have any problems towing with lift kit?

    Just a few, more to come
    My truck is lifted 3/2 and I tow up to 9k regularly, and sometimes at distance of 1000+ miles one way. Tows fine lifted.

    If you level your bed rake (empty) you may be a little nose high when towing. It should be minimal with a properly setup WDH.
