Alignment was all within spec, truck drives great and goes down the road straight. As of now I am not planning on getting ucas. The only other thing I would like to do is get some bigger tires but that will be next year sometime.

Perfect, thanks for the update. I guess the 2 CB shims don't take it out of spec to require new UCAs.

I have the Pro suspension, but I've been debating if I should get CB shackles and shims before installing them. Now I'm contemplating selling them and getting a set of Kings or Foxes.

It all depends on your proposed use. If you are going to wheel your truck hard then kings or foxes might be in order but the Pro kit is very capable. I use my truck as a truck. I tow, haul, and use it off road on occasion. The OME 612 and CB +2 shackles have proved very capable, I just want a bit pusher ride. The OME can be a bit stiff.

I will be getting it installed tomorrow (should end up with just under 1" of rake) and I will be getting some 295/70R18s Nitto Trail Grapps put on the stock TRD PRO wheels. I was wondering how it would look with that rake so thanks for posting the pic, looks good in my opinion!!! I'm assuming mine will look very similar to what yours looks like.

Will post some pics tomorrow evening or Friday once its all on there.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. Let me know how it goes.

@Migs53 Please update your results.

Ok, finally got the shims and shackles put on and new tires.

I used 2x CB shims on each side and the +3 CB shackles then threw on 295/70R18 Nitto Trail Grapplers on the stock 2016 TRD Pro wheels. I also had the CB steering kit put on and the truck still feels pretty good. Not a whole lot of road noise from the tires. I only got to drive the truck home and now am sitting on an airplane - going on a 4 day trip, so further driving and playing with the new toy will have to wait.

What a difference! I feel like this is closer what the stock off-road Tundra should come from the manufacturer looking like! In the picture with the other truck, that is for reference on the new stance, that is my brother's Limited Sunset Bronze Tundra TRD Offroad with TOYTEC 3" lift and 305/65R18 BFG K/O2's.

Conventional wisdom here is that performing a lift or huge tires is doing mischief to the superbly tuned PRO suspension.

I hear you that you've achieved what you want it to look like. But what about the performance now? Did you have the "stock" PRO setup on there long enough to be able to judge things before and after this lift?

Or does the appearance change alone suit your uses for the truck?

2003 Tacoma 4WD. 2005 Tundra, Carolina Dirt Road Metallic (traded)
2007 Tundra XS-P, dark green. Perhaps the very best overall vehicle I've ever owned, traded for:
2015 Tundra TRD pro, Inferno dual cab.
Lotus cars: 1974 Europa, 2005 Elise (track prep), 2011 Evora S
2015 Honda Civic Si It's orange too. Great little daily
2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed. Best car on the road.
2019 Lexus LC500. The V8 barks!

Fair point. I am no engineer, nor am I some super hardcore off-roader, so I would say that this conservative 1" of lift and slightly larger tires serves my needs just fine.
Thanks for checking in, though, X.
