Lovin this thing...

I purchaced my 2012 Silver 5.7 CM on September 15th and I am STILL smiling...I have wanted one of these since '07 and I finally got one. Its all still stock but that is going to change hopefully soon I just need to figure out if I want a leveling kit, or a 4" lift. Being able to still park it in the garage would be awesome. My garage is 82" high so....any thoughts? Thanks to everyone in advance!!

I hear ya dude. It's A May Zing. This is the first new vehicle I love driving. It fits many wants and needs - it's a truck, it's comfortable, it has lotza storage cubbies, and it is fast - right out of the box. I can't wait to install the performance stuff... what will it be like then? (Recurring images of a happy guy ordering new rubber)

Welcome to the forums...
You will be cutting it very close as far as 82" goes with a 4" lift and I say that because of tires. I have an OME setup that was supposed to yield a 3" lift but I actually got more like 3.5" and my truck sits right about 80" now with 33" tires so if I lived in your house with your garage, 34" tires would be doable but 35" tires would be out with my lift...go with the full 4" lift and then 34" tires might be tight.

I don't have a 4" lift, I have this 3" OME coilovers but I ended up with about 3.5" of lift although it may have settled a bit now but I have not remeasured. I went with CoachBuilders (user in the forum) custom +3 rear shackles which raised the back 1.6 inches.

I love the setup. It rides much better and it is right at home off-road. You could not pay me to go back to stock and the total package was only a thousand bucks.

The OME coils I have will work just fine, my Tundra is 4wd.

Good to know that would work! I guess I did forget to mention it is the 4wd...
I am pretty sure I am just going to end up with a leveling kit due to the garage issue...and my wife nagging about it "being too high up" haha...but I still have quite a while to think about it.

Your truck won't be any lower with a level kit vs. the OME setup but you can do the level much cheaper. The OME setup like I have is a full front suspension replacement which is much much better if you plan to actually use your 4WD, meaning, you want to off-road. The overall ride quality will be better with new coils as well. If you just want a better look for your truck then the level kit will be fine and it will function off-road, but, again, it will raise your truck just as much as the OME setup (unless you do a 2/1 level instead of the standard 3/1 level).
