Yep, factory fenders. I've trimmed the bottom half of the front flares and did a cab mount chop too. No rubbing what so ever.

Going to do something substantial to the flares once I regear and step up the 35's.

I'm surprised you don't rub! Any pics of the front tires stuffed?

I have 33's and I'm pretty sure that they would wreck my fenders if I widened the stance by 4". I need to do the cab mount chop and fold over my pinch welds. I rub on them occasionally.

I've been debating doing that when I go to 35's or 36's, but can't decide. Don't really want to have the holes and not sure about my skill at filling them in. haha

Ultimately I got the allpro fenders in the front and took off the fenders in the back since they were ripping off anyways. I also pulled out the rear fenders as much as I can yank on them the help cover the rear tires. For sure you will need to do something with the fenders for any tire size above 33"

Even before I installed the fenders...only had em on for a few months now. Those fenders sat in my garage for well over a year before I finally got off my lazy ass

Not fully compressed, but the best i could do.
Wheelers super bumps in the front and timbrens in the rear:

How much taller are those wheelers over factory? They must stop your wheels right before they hit the fenders because it certainly looks like your tires would smash right into the flares if they went any hire.

I think if I go this route I will just have to get fiberglass fenders I guess... 35's and LT would rape my fenders unless I put some tall bump stops on, which starts to defeat the purpose of LT. More money...

They're 17's, stock I had the TRD offroad 16's. I'm going to work some magic on these flares once i step up to 35's. Pretty much have to!

Actually the Wheelers super bumps compress to factory size( ~1 inch), they just provide a little more cushion. Kinda like air bumps. Factory bump stops are rock hard. The Timbrens in the rear do the same, they compress down to about 1 inch.

MonkeyProof had the timbrems in the back... They eat up a lot of travel.

You're definitely going to have to take a BFH to fit 35s!

I was going to take the complete half shafts to Toyota or another shop to put the axles in, but after talking with the Toyota techs and some other shops tech area this area, I've come to the conclusion that no one knows how to do this procedure.

I'm planning on using this method to separate the axle shafts:

Already purchased 2 new snap rings just in case they break.
Believe it or not, this method actually worked for me ! 5-10 whacks got it off (that's what she said). I was hitting it hard enough to deform the end of the pipe I had against the concrete. Only one of the clips was damaged, and I had replacements on order just in case. Thanks to this forum post I had the part #'s and a backup plan (sawing the things off and pressing them out) as well.

thanks man, haha. Still have my stock flares on somehow. LOL. I rub on the top of the flare only at full compression.

35's, 4.88's and an ARB in the front this summer so im going to have to trim these flares for sure soon.

Not many coilovers crank up to 6" with any success at least. Pro Comp and FABTECH are for the 6" lifts. I don't recommend it personally but you do what you gotta do. Search drop bracket lifts and all your dreams will come true
