    2013 Tacoma 4x4 TRD OR access- on order
    I just ordered a 2013 4x4 V6 TRD off road value package & towing package access cab magnetic gray. The truck comes with the 265/70r16.
    I wasn't able to see one or see many on the road. I would like to level and raise the truck a little so it still looks ok with the stock tires. I been reading and looking at a few trucks on TW, but i still not sure which way to go without making my truck look stupid. The only thing i am clear on is 5100's on the front.

    The rear
    Will 5100 in the rear raise the rear?
    Or aal 1.5 but i think the 2013 has 4 leafs

    any info or pics with the 265/70R16

    shocks will not raise the rear.

    If you do 5100's on the front set at 1.75" you should be very close to level or with the rear sitting just a hair higher than the front.

    No need to lift the rear if you are staying with stock tires.

    depends if you get extended 5100s in the rear. get 5100s for the front and set them at 1.75 and a 1" aal in the rear if you dont have the TSB, if you have the TSB leave it alone and just go 1.75 on the 5100s in the front


    Edit: dammit.. too late

    5100's don't lift the rear, they are simply shock absorbers. I recently did eibach springs at .85 on my front 5100's and a 1.5 aal. Its pretty level but retains a little rake, we will see how everything breaks in. The front is about 2.7 inches higher. My 265/70 tires look way too small now. Keep the stock height unless you plan on getting larger tires. I plan on going up to 265/75 sometime soon.

    5100 extended length are designed for 3-4" of lift. just make sure you get the non extended length ones

    Better make sure. I have the same truck as you, '13 4x4 OR with factory tow package but double cab, and it only has 3 leafs.
    Same color too :)
