Leveling kit 2008 double cab 4x4?

Anyone have any pics, suggestions, tire sizes, ride, etc. I'm considering doing a leveling kit because I don't want to put a lift but, I wish the truck was more level. Also I just put 265/70R17 BFG all terrains on the truck. I'm afraid they would look too small. Any tips would be helpfull. Thanks

I have the Truxxx 3" in front & 1" in rear leveling kit and I'm running 285/70/17 (32.7") http://www.truxxx.com/product/toyota

I got my kit from a local dealer for $229.99. On the web I found them as cheap as $269.99.

You can also just go with a 2" leveling kit which only lifts the front. Tuff Country makes one for about $140.00. http://www.ultimateautoaccessories.c...source=Froogle

5100 on the front w/ aftermarket coil springs - eibach. Set the shocks at 0 or .85 and you will get between 1.6 and 2.5 in. lift in the front.
Get the TSB done on the rear and you will be real close to level. Will not have to worry w/ aligments, UCA, and all of the other stuff that comes with lifting to high.

i put bilstein 5100's all around, got the TSB rear leafs and set the fronts at .85" it now has the stock rake, and rides great and was very cheap. its not really a lift, rather an upgrade.
