    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

    5100's at 1.75, Rear leaf TSB, Moto Metal 951 16x8, BFG TKO2 265/75/16, AFe Stage 2 CAI w/pro dry filter, Access Loredo tonneau cover, Tinted windows, EGR in channel vent visors, Ultragauge, UGA drink coasters in the front cup holders, and an Evenflow car seat in the back seat
    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.

    Toytec 3" suspension lift with Bilstein 5100's all around and 1.5" AAL in the rear
    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.
