Advice on lift and tires

I plan on making some changes to my 08 TRD Off Road Double Cab. Just seeing if anyone has done something similar or sees any problems with what I have chosen.

Lift: OME 3" Lift With front coils & rear options

Wheels: Rock Crawler Series 98 Flat Black Monster Mod Wheel.
15x10, 6 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern, Backspace=3.75, Max Load = 1800 Lbs

Tires: Super Swamper TSL Radials
Super Swamper Radial TSL, 32/10.50R-15LT, Radial TSL, Load Range C, Max Load 2370, Tread Depth 21/32, Overall Diameter = 32.1

Im not real certain on all the specs I need so if anyone sees anything wrong with these numbers
or has any thing else to add, like problems with rubbing or anything it would be greatly appreciated. Also for anyone who has added a lift if you had any problems with any of the sensors or computer stuff.

The rear options are because I can choose between aal and shocks im guessing. My plan was to just go with the aal.

That sucks I was planning on being able to run 15's instead of 16's, thanks for the heads up.

definitely no 15" wheels on a 6 lug 2nd gen unless other things are done. the arctic truck w/ 38" tires runs a 15" wheel...but it's 12.5" wide and i have no idea about the backspacing, but i imagine it's pretty low.

I have a 2007 quad cab 4x4 V6 6 Speed manual.

I have added:

Front:

OME 885's with toytec top spacer, OME Nitrochargers, front differential drop kit, extended brake lines, Light Racing upper control arms

Rear: Toyota TSB spring packs, toytec AAL, OME Nitrochargers, extended brake lines.

Tires/wheels: Wild Country XTX 285-70-17s on AR Mojave 17's

I love the setup. Very functional. I have had it lifted for about 4 years now, no problems. Drives great. Had a slight vibration after it was first lifted. After about 6 months it faded away.

Go for it! The truck drives way better. This is how Toyota should have built it!

^^ Thats good to hear, my main concern was not to mess up the electronics in the truck. Your lift sounds similar to this one

I think this might be to one I decide to go with. Ill probably stick with 16" steelies for the rims. Thanks for the input.
