Looks great man. Which ReadlyLift kit did you go with, and what size tires? I like how the tire pokes out a little bit. Looks good on trucks to me.

Went with ReadyLift 3/1 Kit 69-5075 and am running V-Tech Raptor wheels 18x9.5 +25mm offset on Goodyear Duratrac 295/65/18's

I like how the tires stick out from the wheel well a bit too. I think the 9.5" wide wheel makes the tire look wider too

Have you noticed any noticeable change in MPG or is it still to soon to tell?

Probably still too early to tell, but for what it's worth, my MPG is still at 15.5 MPG according to my INFO button.

On my trip from Dallas to San Antonio yesterday, I made the same distance on the same amount of gas, so I'm sure it's close to the same MPG

Nice

Raven, looks good. I'm stuck on which leveling kit to get. it seems some people using different lifts aren't getting the 3" in the front and don't need the rear block. did you get the total 3" in the front? did you do it yourself?
would you recomend the readylift? thanks

I didn't do the level myself; I had a local Ranch Hand shop do the install for me. It was the best idea, since they actually take the trucks to a Toyota dealership to do the alignment (the one I bought my truck from).

I'd recommend the ReadyLift 3/1 Kit 69-5075 kit to anybody with a Tundra. Mine is a TRD 4x4 so the ride stiffness did change.

Yes, I got the full 3" out of the level. My stock height was 36.5" in front and 39.5" in back. Now, it's 39.5" in front and 40.5" in back. It looks level from a distance, but still has the slight rake I want. Heck it looked good to me before I got my new wheels and tires, but my buddy wanted to buy my stock TRD wheels/tires from me, so I had to get new shoes on my boy

maybe if they weren't $90 plus shipping, I'd consider it.

yeah, looking at these pics i posted brings back memories of when i just got my truck leveled.....it still rides perfect, and I've never had any issues with alignment or anything. i recently moved to Tucson, and the roads around here are a bit bumpier than back in SA. i remember when i decided to pull the trigger on the level...i was so nervous the aloignment would be all jacked up, but no such probs

I just did the 3/1 ReadyLIft kit. Did the install myself...took three hours for the front end, about 20 minutes for the rear end. Very easy install...just took a while because it's been 100+ degrees here, and the case of Dos Equis I was working on didn't speed me up at all. Unlike Raven, my alignment is all jacked up. Far too positive camber on driver's side and too much negative camber on the passenger side. Did the zero point calibration myself just to head off any future VSC problems (local Toyota dealer quoted $110, forget that crap! (zero point was very quick and easy)...putting 33" Nittos w/ 20" Monsters on this week, then it's going in for the alignment. If I get tired of the 33s I will move up to the 35s on the next go-around as I figure they'll only last a year, maybe two if I take a lot of holidays!
