    Hey everyone,
    I am very new to the site and was hoping you guys/gals could help me out. I have a Rough Country 3-inch lift kit in my 4th gen right now with 265 BFG A/Ts. It is not that aggressive and the front sits lower than the back. I am trying to figure out what I should do when the tires I have need to be replaced. Im gonna replace tires and lift/leveling kit all at once. Help me out!

    This is all personal opinion and should be based on what you want and how you like to use your truck.

    I personally went with a leveling kit because:

    1) I think the 4Runner is already tall enough
    2) I think a lower center of gravity is beneficial for what I do
    3) My truck is mostly a daily driver
    4) The type of offroading I do is on fast desert style roads and not rock crawling. Therefore I don't need a lot of clearance for articulation

    I also went with the leveling with Bilstein at 2nd clip. I think it came out nice.
