    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    Billies at 2.5" and a 2" AAL is a good setup for ya. You'll want some longer rear shocks as well.
    As for tires, 265/70/17's would fit fine. With a lil trimming on the front, 285/70's would fit and look better IMO.

    A set of 4 Billy 5100's would be a good match front and rear and be reasonably priced. Fronts set to 2.5" lift, and then the AAL to lift the back, with the rear shocks handling the additional height the truck sits at in the back.
    I'd contact Wheeler's offroad; they can answer any suspension questions and also sell whatever kit you decide on for a good price. For gas mileage, sticking to 265s is probably a good idea since they're smaller/lighter.

    For a CAI, myself I prefer synthetic filters. They filter better than the oiled K&N's etc, and are easier to clean/reinstall. AFE makes their 'pro-dry' kits, also AEM has a brute force synthetic filter system. I have a AEM synthetic filter on my truck after running a K&N style filter in the past.

    I have a set of 265/70/17 for sale at a steal of a price. Check out my list in for sale.

    As for what Eric said I agree. I use the synthetic filter, easy to clean and no broken sensors
