Leveling kit
I'm looking at raising my 2013 double cab and a friend of mine suggested to use a 3" level kit from ebay(which made me a little uneasy about doing it). The kit is made by Supreme suspension. I have read mixed reviews as is with every product and wanted to know if anyone else has use or is using it now. To give me a go or no go on it! I do not want to go 6 inches I just want to hug an 18 and a little bit taller sidewall so Nothing drastic

3 inch you will need new UCA. You do a better lift with 5100s. Spacers are a no no on this site.

Well that's exactly what I was thinking. Seeing the price of the kit was rather scary. It seemed to good too be true. How much of a lift do the shocks support? And does it diminish the ride quality?

You will usually get 1-2 inch lift depending on what notch you set them.I did not notice a drastic difference in my ride. had 2010 SR5. totaled it. plan to put them back on my 2013

I have 5100's set at 1.75 (next to the highest setting) with the stock sport coils and I actually like the ride better. It's not really any stiffer, just a tighter feel with less body roll. Now if you go to the next setting I hear it will ride kinda ruff. :notsure:

If this is enough lift/level for you I highly recommend it.

I'm running the 5100's at 2.5 (highest setting) with Eibach spring coils and a 1.5" AAL in the rear on my 2013 DC and love the results. The ride is not stiff, as was my worry based on the "reviews" I read on this site. As TacoDawgfan mentioned, I also prefer the ride more now than I did with it stock - and that was my primary worry about the lift. The whole lift kit cost me $550 by having the garage order it directly from Toytec. You'll need to factor in labor though.
