hey guys, not trying to beat a dead horse but i did a quick search and didnt come up with anything

so i have an 2011 rock warrior double cab, i understand that they have alittle more lift in the front end than stock? after i asked a manufacture about their leveling kit saying it didnt work with the RW. looking into the 5100's i think im gonna install them front and rear (i got almost 100,000 on the truck might as well change the rear too).

so i guess the question is on a rock warrior what setting are you guys setting them at for the truck to be more level

also i need new tires, i don't have any interest in super expensive tires. when leveling did you go with a taller tire? i might just for back to the destination A/t's ive been running but i dont want it to look funky

thanks

neal

I put the 5100's on my 2011 RW front and rear using the bottom setting on the front. With the weight of the supercharger and front receiver hitch I still have a bit of rake which is what I was looking for as I tow and haul stuff regularly. Will leave the tire question for someone else as I run the stock size myself...

thanks, do you think with out that extra weight it would be level? i just dont wanna get it all put together and be unhappy with it......either that stupid saggy ass look or still being raked more than it could be

I think it would be pretty close visually with just the slightest bit of rake maybe. I hate the saggy ass look myself, and Ive seen guys with perfectly level rigs park on a bit of an incline or throw a couple hundred pounds of something in the back...and walla...saggy ass squat :(

One thing about the Tundras to me seems to be even when the truck is numbers level it looks looks slightly nose up. I put 5100’s on in top setting which leveled it by the numbers but didn’t look level, so I added 1” shackles. This produced a slight rake, a little more than level but definitely less than stock. I think when you get to these types of personal preferences everyone’s truck sits a little different so sometimes you just gotta take the risk and do it, you can always adjust if you don’t like it.

What 2underpar says make's a lot of sense, and I have observed this as well...Hence my use of the word's "looks" and "visually" :) level by the numbers actually looks saggy in the back to me. I tow/haul frequently and prefer a little rake visually on my unloaded truck. Of course I also have air bags so when I am loaded/hooked up and towing I have the ability to fine tune the squat away...If you are looking for numbers(measuring tape) level unloaded you may be better served by using the middle setting. But regarding this...I have no personal knowledge.
