Subbed you should consider the defined engineering rear LT over just bolt on allpro leafs. You would get enough travel to keep up with that front end.

Hmm that sounds tasty. I like might go that direction. But my one and only concern is towing. The All Pro rear will help me out when towing. A long travel rear is a must for dune chucking, but I'm a rock crawler trail junky so I a soft rear end is not needed and when I tow my boat it will bottom that soft rear out. What do you think?

From what I understand the defined kit yields higher load carrying capabilities

Yeah austin... mike the owner of defined is legit... you definitly wont regret putting his kit on.. plus that expo pack would lift the back way to much i think.. youd have to crank the c/o's up too much and lose downtravel and ride like crap..

I knew it might take some work, but after more research it is not worth it waiting for the TRD/AFE to come out next month as my sources say

Good looking 2012! Really digging the wheel and tire combo. Do you have any major problems getting those 275/70-18s to fit with those BBS wheels?...spacers? Also, how do they ride....isnt that size made for heavier trucks?

They fit fine. Only problem I had was rubbing on drivers side but that's because I forgot to set the drivers side 1/3 inch taller. Like AllPro suggests. fox forgot to mention that part. No problem though only small rub and spanner wrenches are on thee way as we speak. No this is a LT tire just like most other Toyo Open country MTs
