    I just bought a 2011 tx pro xtra cab. Im thinking about putting a 3'' toyo tech complete lift kit in, but have been reading into just doing a Bilstein 5100 to level out the front. The truck is completely stock right now and I dont want to effect the ride too much. Also, I tow a utility trailer for work that weighs around 2800 lbs. Would it be a bad idea to tow something this weight after putting a lift kit in? thank you!

    No problem towing that much weight with a Toytec lift. As far as what lift you need, that depends on how big of a tire you want to run.
