I'm guessing leveling kind of limits the capabilities?

Before this forum I was un-aware of the practice of 'leveling' a truck haha.
Leveling kit doesnt limit anything. It'll just look goofy if you have a heavy trailer because the *** of the truck will sag. The factory rake with the heavy trailer would make it sit level (but lower)

edit: for those leveled guys who tow regularly, be kind to traffic because that sagging rear end will point your headlights into everyone else's eyes. Ive pulled a boat during the day and it sagged a bit, but not much.

Or if you're smart and anticipate towing you got a system to combat that when hooked up.

That's one thing I love about tundras is that they have adjustable head lights so you can lower them when towing

All vehicles should have automatically adjusting headlights!

I remember reading a long time ago that they were pretty common in the UK...

I lifted mine because it looks awesome. Rides better than with a level, less stress on bearings, plus the angles on the CVs are better.
