I'll try to keep this short as to note bore you all.
2013 DCSB 4x4 V6 TRD sport
Want new tires, the Dunflops bug me each day I see them.
thinking 265/70/17 BFG or Goodyear's.
Was then thinking, should I go with a small lift like max 2"? Would that put me in to a slightly larger tire and still avoid rubbing? I want to keep the mud flaps too.
2013 has 3 leafs and 1 thicker under, so I think I have the updated leafs.
Bilstein 5100's around is bout $300-$350 which is fine w me. They are prob better than the stock TRD Sports and they are height adjustable. could I simply add those and get an extra 1-2" and perhaps go with the next sized tire? Or is more hardware needed for such a small lift? I am not try to do this economical, but do it right.
What about stress on the CV's and all that with such a small lift. Is it going to be noticeable? Handling going to go south for driving around the street (this is my daily driver)? MPG going to be hurt significantly? What sized tire is the next size up beyond 265/70/17? Then I have to think about how hard it may be to get my Ducati in the truck if its that much higher? I need to get a real nice long (hopefully split section) curved ramp, and try to find ideal spots to load/unload where I have a height advantage on the ramp. hmmm...
Thanks, just a noob here, so your help is appreciated.
