    Hey guys,

    Just purchased a 2014 SR5 4WD for everyday use. I have KO2 265/70r17 with Method Wheels. I’m debating between a 3” lift or to just level. Any advice? If anyone got pictures of theirs please feel free to share!

    Lots and lots of examples scattered throughout the forum. Here is mine..

    Eibach front coilovers
    JBA Offroad upper control arms
    Durobump bumpstops front and rear
    OME 8295 rear springs
    Eibach rear shocks
    Stock size tires

    This is about a 2.75" lift front and rear.

    I like the way you think. Seriously, you don't "need" anything more than stock with some good tires on this vehicle. It is so capable stock.

    I only modified mine because I will be carrying 3-500 pounds on a daily basis, otherwise, I would have kept it stock

    Mine's pretty close to level with a 1.6" lift in the front and stock height in the back. I'm still 1/4" higher in the back when you measure from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender. I also have 285's.

    Nice ride! I would vote to stay closer to 2.5” lift
