my lift is an OME 2.5 (top plates spacers would have made it 3 but i didnt want to deal with getting new ucas just yet) but when i added the 285s i remeasured and it added just over an inch so i got the full 3" in the end...the 285s need spacers to get them away from the ucas but no trimming needed yet. im puttin the spacers on this week so ill update you on the trimming when i get them on

The truck looks great and inspires me to do similar mods on my Taco as well.


Have you still determined that you have to do some trimming? If so, can you give us some details and maybe some pics?

Truck looks great man. How have you liked the duratracs with the ome combo and spacers? I was gonna go 265/70/17 but now you got me wanting bigger I like the stance yours has!
