    Vehicle:
    2000 Tundra 4wd
    Toytec adjustable coilovers set at 3", 1.5" Toytec AAL, Flowmaster 40 series muffles (removed fatory Toyota exhaust silencer), 4" tips, K&N air filter (removed carbon filter), 5% tint, 285/75/16 Nitto Trail Grapplers with random 16x8 alloy wheels.
    A good friend of mine has a 2005 Toyota Tundra double cab 2wd that he is wanting to lift. He has put me in charge of getting everything together for him. He is going to go with a 3" lift and was wanting to know what the right tire size to go with. I'm thinking a 285/70/17 would be good on it. And does anyone know if you can buy just the Eibach coils like you can for Tacoma's? If Toytec doesn't sell just the coils, he is going to go with the Toytec ULC.... And does anybody have any pictures of a 1st gen double cab Tundra with a 3" lift and 285/70/17's?

    The first good option is a set of Bilstein 5100s, which will provide about 2.5" of lift. I recommend not going beyond 2.5" anyway. Then the next option is a set of coilovers. Toytech, Icon, Radflo. They are all fully adjustable for ride height up to 3" max (2.5" recommended.) Most people are going to run a 285/75R16.
