    The BHLM should be factory on the '12. It looks great with the black fog light surround. Beautiful truck man!

    For me, my initial measurements showed a difference of 2" between front and back. I also installed the toytec 1/4" lean spacer it is pretty level with the tsb rear. Measure your ride height now and go from there. I might eventually move to .85 if they settle too much but would throw a 1.5" aal or a new leaf pack.

    GTFO. There are plenty of other 2012 threads for you to voice your opinion in.

    OP,

    Truck looks sick! Toyota should have done the BHLM from the factory!

    My understanding is that the TRD Sport models now come with the TSB rear leafs from the factory.

    Either way, if you don't already have them, just drive up to the dealer and tell them it is riding rough with a load in the back. They shouldn't give you any trouble - this TSB has been out for years.
