    ok, tried search barring, but everything (most) is for tacomas... but im getting my grandfathers 05 tundra... im wanting to lift it, ive been doing some searching, i want to do a 6 inch lift, maybe 5 inch, but i can only find a 6 inch lift from tuff country which is like 1600 bucks... is there any alternatives for 6 inch lift? all i can find is 2.5 or 3

    so heres my questions

    1. what brands make a 6 inch lift for the tundra?

    2. what size wheels/tires can i run with out rubbing?

    3. do i need other parts other than a "lift kit" ex shocks, leafs etc...

    thanks guys, sorry for the dumb questions, i would have rather just bought a truck with a lift but this was my only option

    I know if you get just a big body lift they are junk but why not an extra 2 inches to clear the wheels?

    I think you can run 35's on a tundra with a 3 in lift with some cutting if im not mistaken
