Title pretty much says it all. I have no interest in lifting my truck because I like to park in my garage in the wet months. I would, however like to level it for aesthetic purposes. When the stock tires wear out, I'll probably get a set of wheels and tires, but not any significantly larger than the stock. Possibly slight wider, but nothing crazy. Looking for things to consider when leveling. Truck is a 2018 SR5 Double Cab 4x4. I do not tow anything.

1. What height leveling kit to get it as level, or just slightly raked.
2. Anything I should be concerned about changing the geometry?
3. Tire size suggestions?

Thanks!

Standard leveling kits for a slight nose down rake are 2 inches in the front, no modification to the rear. Also common is 3 inches in the front and 1 inch in the rear. Coachbuilder is a great suggestion. He knows your truck like the back of his hand.

Either 2/0" or 3/1" have to agree with prior posts. Check out Coachbuilder. Id go with a 275 70 18 tire and you'll have no issues with rubbing. Just my opinion.

Among the cited benefits of leveling are ensuring sleep comfort, increasing the energy efficiency of refrigerators, making sure doors are not flying and other safety and cost-saving attributes. You can refer some information about leveling. I read it and saw that it really useful.

Tundras are already not great with mpg so keep this in mind. For every inch you go up, you get ~1 mpg less. If that's not a concern, have fun. I'll never lift or level a truck again.

The difference front to back isn't really that great or noticeable and the trend I see of front ends being higher than the back is just ridiculous looking.
