I look at it this way, someone that knows a heck of a lot more about suspension geometry than you or I do designed the truck. I don't think a $65 kit is going to maintain 100% proper suspension geometry.

I guess a better solution is to find a dude with a laptop and an OBD-II cable to go in and start changing settings in the ECU.
People can put whatever they want on their trucks, I was just expressing my opinion. Remember @kgauk did ask for opinions and I gave it to him. If my opinion offends you, then you are 100% free to ignore it.

For someone that is so against modifying the suspension of a truck but has a "canned" tune is quite comical.
I promise you that my lifted truck with level kit rides a heck of a lot better than your stock hight truck. I would only assume that you have never owned a leveled/lifted vehicle so you are only speculating on the premature wear of BJ's and tires. With a good alignment there will be no unusual tread wear and as long as you keep your angles in check I would be able to rest easy at night know that my BJ's will wear out at 150k miles rather than 175K.
Oh and by the way....you dont have to "off road" your truck to justify a lift kit. All that matters is chicks dig it!

My truck rides amazing after my leveling kit install!...ive got quite abit of looks after i put it on also...i dont think id ever put a tune on my gas truck,my last truck was a dmax and heck ya i had one on there!...ya its your opinion about a lift/leveling but dont EVER tell me i dont care about my truck just because i put a leveling kit on it
I actually use my truck for what a truck is used for...but i dont beat the hell out of it. I pull my camper,take the boat to the lake,throw dead deer in the back with blood pouring out the bed of truck.I like it leveled so i can do more stuff with it...like "bigger" drifts that you need to go thru,take it thru fields,go arcoss creeks,etc.My last truck had a full RC leveling kit on it for 30k or so,no uneven worn tires,no issues,etc.Going past 2.5" is whats going to start messing stuff up.But then again
