    Yeah, you make sense. But unfortunately the legal system doesn't always make sense.
    You've "modified" your truck to change the sensor height. It's pretty easy to argue in court that any sensor issues leading to injury could have been caused by your modification (and therefore are your fault), letting Toyota off the hook. If on the other hand Toyota just recalibrated despite the height change then they would be accepting responsibility/liability... and that ain't gonna happen!
    The average person just doesn't have the resources to go up against the corporate lawyers and probably lose. Not fair - just reality...

    Maybe @Toytec Lifts @Icon_Adrian @Coachbuilder1 and other vendors that say they work with Toyota to develop aftermarket parts should start putting on their website that Toyota voids warranty work related to the PCS system if certain components are installed. Just like Aries and Westin do for their front bars that affect the sensor.

    I took my leveled Tundra in for an oil change two weeks ago. My vehicle is on the recall list, but it wasn't even mentioned when I took it in. I haven't been notified of the recall in any way if that matters.

    So if I just bought a 2019 Tundra and there’s no recalls or campaigns on my VIN when I look it up in the Toyota app, does that mean that my sensor is good and I can lift the truck no problem...

    I’m starting to regret buying the truck and I haven’t even owned it one day

    Because I’m reading that this sensor will prevent me from lifting at all

    I traded in a 2016 for a 2019 with Toyota Safety sense. After we negotiated, and came to a deal, I asked if they installed leveling kits at the dealership. The sales guy said he'd ask. Came back and said they would not because of the sensor issue. I almost backed out. Fast forward several months I went ahead with the Bilstein 5100s to level it out. Everything still works fine.

    A few days ago, I was chatting with another Tundra owner in my area, and he mentioned the dealership he bought his from, and how they work with a local truck parts store to install mods on new vehicles. It really depends on where you go for service. Some dealerships care if you lift/level, others don't, and still others (perhaps rare) encourage it.
