    Ha! I had one before- it clears by an inch but it’s not something that is comfortable the first time you try it. I manually pulled the door down so I could stop it if needed.

    Did the dealer install the lift? If so then they should cover it, but I’d get it in writing.

    It looks small enough and small enough tires that wouldn’t cause extra stress or strain in the powertrain. See what gear ratio it has

    Yea, it was installed by the previous dealer. It's a 6" lift with 35s. 3.55 gears. Warranty looks like it is up on the lift though based on pictures they posted.

    I wouldn’t worry about so long as you don’t drive it like a teenager.

    I’ve never had a lifted truck so I’m just hesitant.

    Take a long test drive in it then.

    Your acceleration, braking, handling, ride quality, and mpg are all going to under perform compared to a stock height truck or a leveled truck.



    Getting a stock truck and throwing a leveling kit on would be my suggestion. Little extra height and room for bigger tires without molesting all the factory geometry of the suspension.

    I just bought a new tundra and love. I know the gas mileage is less than ideal but I’ll take the tried and true tundra still any day.

    If you read what all is actually being changed.... to call this a “new” generation is a bit laughable.

    Are they getting rid of the interior design that looks like it’s from 2 decades ago?

    I know the tundra hasn’t changed dramatically since 07... but the one I just bought is pretty nice. Idk... maybe I don’t care as much bout that stuff

    Typically they won't change a truck or SUV platform but maybe once every decade or so. However, they'll usually upgrade body styling and the interior every few years while keeping everything you can't see basically the same.

    I love my gas-guzzling, behind-the-times Tundra, and none of you can stop me.
