Not yet....
Debating on tires now.
I have chosen my rim though (below)

Cant decide on tire:
295-60-20 Nitto Terra's
OR
33x12.5 Toyo MT
Possibly
35x12.5 Toyo MT (it does fit will minor, minor trim - WhiteKnight did it with Bilstein set to 2.8)

Thoughts on tire choice?

Moto Metal (20x9, 0 offset)



Just because your truck is red.... (I know, its a Tundra, but it looks damn good on it)

I ordered the body lift from TruckProUSA.
Honestly I'm not a huge fan of body lifts. I don't think that's the way to "lift" a truck. However, I got bored waiting on my shocks and had to do something.

The 1" body lift was only like $100 and was super easy to install. Since it's not that much of a lift, you don't have to extend your steering linkage, gas tank lines, or a number of other components commonly associated with body lifts.
So, I figured for $100 and a few hours of labor, it was worth it.
Combined with the bilsteins, it's close to a 4in lift without all the $$$.

I always wondered how simple it was to install a body lift...
If you are saying a 1" is pretty easy and doesn't require lots of modding.....can I grab one more idea from you

Your stance is what I want on mine :smile up:
Hope it looks good on mine as it does on yours

It's not hard at all. I installed mine one evening after work.
My advice to you is use an impact. It'll make everything easier and faster.
Don't be an idiot like me and use ratchets and wrenches.

Check!
I got a cordless impact and wired one.
I will check the link you sent above for this lift....

so 1" will require minimal modding? Anything higher will?

For the most part this is true. You'll still have to do a lil grinding, drill new holes, etc. but you won't have to do a lot of things that a taller body lift would require. I've seen instructions for taller body lifts be twice as long.
