Leveled/Lifted My Tundra

I added a 3" leveling kit up front but also installed 1.5" blocks in the rear to maintain a small amount of rake. New rubber all around in the form of Cooper ATP's 275/60R20 which are 33". Just an inch taller that stock.

I wanted to gain a more aggressive stance but not kill the gas mileage. Anyhow, to most it's probably not that noticeable but to me it's a big change. The pics simply don't do it justice. I'm loving the new look and feel!

Pics seem to do it justice for me! Nice ride, looks great.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: Leveled/Lifted My Tundra

Thanks guys!

The planning and prep is alot of fun but can be very nerve racking as well when trying to get the look you want when on a tight budget. I probably spent 100 hours reading and contemplating different tire sizes and lifts.

Looks nice.I,m a gear head and grew up in the 70,s and still like rake.Me personally I would never level a truck.They rake em for a reason.I still think rake on muscle cars looks extremely cool.Remember Hi-Jackers?

Bootmud: nice lookin' ride.
Did you do the work yourself?

Looks like it was done in a shop.

Oh heck no, I didn't do the labor! LOL That's way above my ability. I felt I got a pretty good deal on the installation and that also included the alignment.
