Ok you guys with lifts. Whats the ride quality of your truck like compared to pre-lift? I just bought the 2013 Longhorn and my wife says I can lift it but we're concerned about vibration especially in 4X4. Be honest as we want to make an informed decision.

I mean mine still rides great on 37" Toyos. Yes on the highway there is less power and it can be frustrating, but overall the ride is still amazing and smooth. My only complaint is I have a squeak coming out of the front left but I think it is a strut and will get it fixed when I get the chance. I say go for it

Noticed you put your truck up for sale. Hope it sells for you. If i didn't buy mine and you lived close i'd have to think about that offer you're asking

Hi, noticed you're in Ontario too
The ride is not going to be the same as stock...but it shouldn't be
This is not to say its rough or uncomfortable as its still very pleasant to drive it.
If you want to avoid vibration, just go with a lift kit and leave it be. If you want to level it off via Bilsteins, then set it to 0.7 for slight rake or 1.4 for dead level
You will have zero vibration in 2wd and 4wd.
As for tires.....go with an AT as at low speeds with an MT the ride is a tad bumpy due to the thick nubs,....but it's what to be expected with MT tires and also the highway 'hum' when cruising.
Other than that, you are good to go. Just know what you want and stick with it.

As for lift and wheels, I can certainly help you out with pricing these stuff out and also provide it to you shipped right to our house
Let me know

I can always be emailed at my username plus the dot com

My problem right now is deciding between the 4' or 6" lift. I already have wheels with 35" tires on my current truck but it just has a level and I get a vibration in 4 Wheel and I want to get away from that. Actually it is more of a shudder especially under acceleration. l would like to know how much the install for a lift should cost here in Ontario.
