So i put my RC 2" level kit and Toyo 295/55/20's on this weekend. Install was simple, just like on my 2011. It definitely helps to have an extra set of hands when wedging that spacer in there. 295/

Thanks. Here is one more from yesterday. Considering we're getting 8-10 inches of rain the next two days, I won't be taking any better pics soon.

Took a few more pics today not sure if they are necessarily "better", but here they are anyway.

 

Picking up a Hypertech Max Energy to fix my speedometer today.

Drove mine around for the past few weeks with the rear lowered (via removing rear blocks) but now think I want to go the other way. Reinstalled the rear blocks on Monday now looking to raise the front, but not a lot. Not looking to level it, just want another 3/4"-1" clearance at the air dam. Seems the ratio of lift for front spacers is about 2/1 so I am thinking of just cutting and drilling some 3/8" flat stock I have here and using this with grade 8 bolts to shim the front struts which should give me 3/4" lift.

Really like the look of of your truck. Tires look perfect on it. Are they noisy?

 

Really miss green grass! Haven't seen mine in months.....

They have a decent howl above 45mph, but I wouldn't say their loud. It doesn't bother me at all, and with the radio at a moderate level 25-30% volume you can't hear them. My wife didn't complain at all so I think that says something.

 

And for everyone who is considering 35's be mindful they will rub when you go off-road and start to flex while turning, if I had a 2.5 level instead of the 2.25 up front it might be better, and there is some more extensive trimming that could be done but I don't think I'm going to, it's not bad enough to justify cutting the plastic trim piece around the wheel well up front.

 

We've had a lot of rain this winter and the past few days have been sunny so everything is starting to pop.

I installed my bottom spacer 1.5" level kit yesterday and I find the ride is very rough. Not sure why, I thought these spacers weren't supposed to affect ride quality, but it definetly hits the little bumps in the road a lot harder now. I think I may be going with the rancho qiicklifts sooner than I expected and setting them at a lower setting. Everyone else says they can't tell a difference in ride, either theyre not as picky as me or they're lying to themselves in my opinionm unless there's a chance I installed something wrong. All I did was loosen the sway bar and pry the shocks up to fit the spacer under.
