So after many months of research and asking questions (many numerous times) and going back and forth on what lift to get, what tires to run and what wheels i like best, I decided to go with 20x9 kmc monster wrapped in 35x12.5 trail grapplers and for suspension I went with the zone 5" lift. I haven't had a chance to clean her up yet but here are a few photos.
I pulled my srt4 up to the tundra so you can get an idea how tall it is. Rear is weighed down in this pic because of my old wheels and tires where in the bed.

Here's a few more at my house after I unloaded my old wheels and tires from the bed.


As soon as we actually get some spring weather here in ohio I'm going to plast dip my nerf bars and debadge.

Looks great. How does it ride? Thinking of all to dowith mine, how much did it set you back?
The ride is close to stock, maybe a tiny bit more stiff but pretty damn close to stock.
It set me back a pretty good chunk of change, I got a good deal on the wheels/tires, I paid $2500 for wheels, tires, lugs,new tpms sensors, mounted and balanced and programmed to my car, also taking my truck back to him tomorrow for him to wash it inside and out which he threw in for free since I bought my wheels and tires from him. It's also a detail shop.
My lift was installed at a different place then where I bought my wheels. The install was a little more then I thought it would of and should of been. I paid $1300 for my lift, carrier bearing drop kit, upgraded nitro shock upgrade and shock boots.
It was $1200 for the install and allignment which I felt was high but had no choice but to pay it because the work was already done. Durring the install they found that one of my cam bolt assembly was seized up so they had to air hammer it off and replace it with a new one from toyota, I'm sure thats where that extra 300 came from for the parts and extra time spent dealing with it that i wasnt expecting. So after all said and done it set me back a cool $5000.

My lift was bought and installed at performance off road in Alexandria ky, Performance Off-Road is there website, they are authorized dealer for zone lift. Reason I picked them was because they been in business for something like 30 yrs, they do a lot of tundra lift for dealerships in this area and they work pretty damn quick, I dropped my truck off Monday morning and pick it back up Tuesday afternoon.

That's a great deal on the tires and wheels. $5K isn't bad for the complete setup. Yeah it's a chunk of change, but every time you see your truck you know where it went. Not like a lot of other shtuff we buy and wonder where it all went.

I thought about doing a 3/1 level kit but I knew I wouldn't of been satisfied so I skipped the level kit and went right to the 5" lift.

truck looks great! whats the height of the cab?
Kind of hard to get a 100% accurate measurement with my drive way surface and trying to hold the tape measure, but from the couple tries I would say its 82 1/2- 83". If anyone has an easy method of measuring I would like to hear about it.
