Newbie here from California

I am a long time Toyota guy, however in 2006 I went to the darkside and purchased a NISSAN TITAN. It was a nice truck but not a TOYOTA. Anyhow, I was able to sell my TITAN and purchased my new '08 black TUNDRA DC last weekend here in Lodi, Ca. So far, I am loving this truck.

This afternoon I am having a Revtek leveling kit, 33" Terra Grapplers and 20" bronze KMC Hoss wheels installed. Cannot wait!! Looking forward to talking trucks with everyone......happy Monday!

Pics of new truck







2.5" revtek leveling kit with 305/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers and 20" KMC Hoss BRONZE wheels. Work was done by Advance Truck Accesories in Stockton, Ca through my dealership. I do have my stockers (wheels and tires) for sale in the correct forum if anyone is interested.

Also had windows tinted @ 35% all the way around, including over the stock tint on the back three windows. I really like the way it turned out and I am glad to be back rolling a TOYOTA.

wheels/tires look good but the truck does not look level, it actually looks stock, you sure they installed the revtek kit?

Man, you are testing my dry sense of humor and sarcasm to the max-but yes, the aluminum blocks at each wheel that say "revtek" would be a good indication that the leveling kit is installed.

I do agree however agree that the truck is just a tad more level than stock. Not much more level, it just sits higher now. I asked the shop if anyone ever left the back blocks out and he said no, so I left it at that.

I do have my motocross bikes to load up in the back on weekends so that should level it out and it will look better.

makes sense .. i would have personally left out the rears though .. i actually didnt know they adjusted the rear when you install a leveling kit.

nice truck though.
