    Default Lift? Leveling Kit?

    I just got my 07 Tundra Crew max. TRD 4x4
    Ive put on 285/65/18 BF Goodrich KO's and want to get a lift or leveling kit
    I dont want to compromise the ride quality too much and want to get more clearance. I dont want to go more then 3 inches. Any recommendations? I dont know ANYTHING about leveling kits or lifts.
    My concern with the leveling kit is that its only going to give me more clearance in the front. What if i clear an obstacle in the front and it scratches the back end?
    If anyone has 285/65/18's with a lift please post pics.

    We have been compiling information on Spacer leveling lifts here...
    List of Spacer Lifts for the 2007 Tundra
    You should be able to come to a decision from the information contained in that thread.

    Here you go. They look a little bigger. The tread is what i love about em. It makes the truck look a lot nicer IMO.

    I plan on going with the 305's with a 2.4 " readylift and 1" block in the rear. Do you think the 305's would fit?

    I went with a 3" Daystar leveling kit with a 1" block on the back. I love it. I also added the BFG K/O 305/65/18. Here are pics of what mine looks like:

    Definitely dont worry about the rear, there is plenty of room, and those tires dont do any turning. If you put something soooo heavy in the bed or on the hitch and it sags the back, the stops will keep it from hitting tires anyways. At that point you'll want to put air bags on it to keep the beautiful truck from sagging!

    I have (approx) 12" x 34" tires with a 2.5" levelling kit, and I have about 1/4" clearance to the inside rear fender well at full turn- after removing all the plastic from the front fender wells. 305/50r22 toyo a/t

    Can anyone tell me what it should cost to get a 3/1 leveling kit installed, with an alignment?? I know what your all going to say, "Just do it yourself!" But I cant with a busted arm (cast to my sholder). A local shop quoted me around $325.00 and 2-3 hours

    I went with the ReadyLift SST 3/1 I have very minimal vibration but it could be cuz of my tires..But I am SUPER happy.. I was going to go with a 6" lift but Im only 5'8 and Im not growing anymore..lol..but the Icon coil overs is the way to go. If u have the loot $$$$...price on install will vary but its worth it.. good luck
