So, just to be clear, I have searched on numerous forums to find any info on this before posting. There is a plethora of info regarding retrofitting shocks to work on a 1st Gen, however my question is this: I have a set of TRD Tundra Off Road progressive bilsteins with coils. I'm considering swapping them onto my 2011 4x4 access cab. I don't have the TRD package, so I'm working with stock OEM shocks and want to get a little lift to allow me to put larger rubber on the truck. Other than swapping top plates and extended brake lines, has anyone seen this done before/ heard any info? I realize the progressive shocks will ride A LOT stiffer than the linear ones that are currently on the truck. Not sure how that will translate into performance for the truck off road though. I don't wheel aggressively (not really into rock crawling/ baja/ dunes) but want the truck to work well for overlanding/ level 4 trails in Central Texas/ occasional trail runs etc, while still being DD'able. Thanks in advance for any light that can be shed on this idea.
To clarify, I already have the TRD shocks. I'm attempting to budget myself to not spend a lot on a lift and tires. My truck is a 4cyl/ so weight is to my advantage as well with the lift.
