Rawdog's TacomaWolf build

Hey guys,
MODS

2" Readylift - blocks in the back 2.75" spacers in the front
265/75/16 Duratracs
Ion alloy 16x8 Rims
Satellite Radio
Bilstein 5100 RCD extended travel rear shocks


How my truck is currently






I bought my truck on Nov 22/2012





Traded my chrome emblem with Rab89's plasti dipped emblem.


Installed my satellite radio.. because Toyota decided it wasn't a good idea to include satellite with the Tacoma's new visual audio setup.. cheapskates

I swapped my Aux switch with a blank so I could use the extra space it gave me for mounting, and it also gave me a place to run all my wires without making a mess.





Bought new wheels and Tires!

Ion Alloy 179's 16x8
Goodyear Duratrac 265/75/16

I'm really happy with how this turned out.. my only concern is that when I lift my truck that my wheel won't stick out very far and I'll lose my new stance.

Painted my dust covers on my rear axle so that they don't eventually rust.

Is your truck stock as far as the lift goes?

Do you have any other shots of the truck as it sits now with the wheels and tires? Im trying to get a mild lift but not to much. I bought some 885x coils off of another member but i dont know if 265 Duratracs are going to look tiny under a lift

well that depends how much lift you want to get.. assuming you will just get a reg 1-3" I dont think that 265's will look small, my buddy Rab89 has 265's and a lift.. I forget how much.. I think 2.5 in the front 2 in the back. His tires dont look small.. If anything just make sure you get wheels too with some decent backspacing because when you buy a lift its gonna suck the wheels in a bit and you probably want to keep a good stance.

I'll see if i can find some pics

Wait... why don't you just buy 285's and wheels if you already have the lift?

I ran 265's and a 2.5 front and 1.5 rear lift for a while.. The tire size went great with that lift.

trimmed my front flaps today

I might decide to go a bit shorter on these but I thought I would give this length a try at first and see if I still have dragging problems on local speedbumps
