Tipover on a 4WD 1st Generation

I've been wondering if anyone has ever figured how far over (in degrees) a 4WD Tundra can go without going over on its side. Mine is stock w/stock wheels/tire size, but I have lifted it 2" in the front. Anyone?

Re: Tipover on a 4WD 1st Generation

OK, I checked around some other sites on my own, and it sounds as if approaching 25-30 degrees sideslope is all a stock vehicle is good for. That's based on some of the FJ40, FJ60, and 4Runner people's experience. Vehicle lift, tires, terrain, etc. will affect this as well. So I'm gonna go with about 25 degrees.

Some of you like to push the limit, but I can't afford to wipe out the cab, etc., so I'll play it safe.

Did you ever hear of a "Tilt-O-Meter"? There used to be a mechanical one that mounted to the dash in a gimbal mount and showed the relative angles of the vehicle. It appears that there are many newer versions available, these days.

Like the water ball thing I see in Jeeps? I've never looked at one close enough to see if it has a danger zone.
