3" Suspension Lift w/ 285/70-17 Nitto Terra Grapplers.

Its been awhile since I have been on here but I just thought I would update you guys on what all I have done w/ my truck recently. I finally broke down and decided to put a lift and tires on my truck and now I regret not doing it earlier. My truck, in my opinion, looks so good now! I got the lift from Top Gun Customz and had my dad install it. It is a 3" suspension lift w/ Billestein shocks in the rear. It rides the same as without a lift and I could not be happier. I thought about keeping the original tires on but after seeing how ridiculous it looked after I got the lift on, I quickly changed my mind. I was hesitant at first because I have seen people talk about rubbing and all that good nonsense. However, I decided to just go with it. I got my Nitto Terra Grapplers installed yesterday. ($997 out the door from discount tire). The only thing I had to do was take the front mudflaps off and the small plastic flap in front of the front tire and I now have NO rubbing issues at all, even at full turn in forward and reverse. I didn't have to do any cutting which I am super happy about. Anyway, I'll stop yapping now. If you guys have questions just let me know. Thanks.

What did you put in the front for a lift? New coil overs? Billy's? UCA's? etc.

All I got on the front was spacers. A lot of people say its not good to do that but I don't do any off-road type stuff. Mine is mostly all highway driving.

Thank You. & Yes, my leather is Katzkin. I don't have a picture of it on my computer or my phone at the moment but I'll take one tomorrow and put it up for you. I got my leather in solid grey to match my interior. I had read reviews on it before I decided to get it and some people talk about wrinkling and stuff but if you're like me and are a clean freak about your truck it'll be fine. I lay the leather cleaner/conditioner to it pretty often (every time I wash my truck) and its just as good as it was when I first got it. It shows blue jean stains like there's no tomorrow though. But nothing a MAGIC ERASER won't fix. HAHA. But really!

Here's some pictures of my leather.

PS. I don't know why but they won't upload the right way. So the first two are sideways. Sorry.

Did you have to put wheel spacers to fit these tires or did your offset of the rims allow clearance?

TO EVERYONE:

I haven't been on here for awhile because I no longer have my Tacoma. I traded it back at the beginning of November.

To NickH92, I didn't have to put wheel spacers on my Tacoma. The 3" lift allowed the Terra Grapplers with no rubbing. I did have to remove the front mud flaps because they were rubbing in reverse.

I think what NickH92 was referring to was not your your lift but what wheel size you were running ie: 17x9? backspacing/offset?
