yeah, you will need at least 2.5 or a true 3 inches in the front. as far as the 33's...the 255/85's will work as is on the stock wheels. you do need to know that this tire is pretty "skinny" and they are also pretty hard to find. to fit a 285/70, you should get some wheel spacers. if you get wider wheels, you can do either. your first step will have to be some type of front lift though.

another thing to consider is that 285s will eat your gas milage. I still get 20mpg (same as with stock tires) with my 255s.

i have no problem going with aftermarket wheels. i was hoping to just paint my stock ones but it doesnt matter. I would like the 285's though or true 33's. I will drop to 16in rim if necessary. my old jeep had 33'sx12.50 which i loved but not sure if i can fit on tacoma. I just am looking for a good less expensive lift for some offroading without going the spacer route.

i think 285's will be fine. if you get the 33x12.5, you will lose a lot of mpg's. you can do it on a 3" lift, but there will be a lot of trimming.

I would get 16" rims. there is more sidewall and they are cheaper.

i would just prefer not to go with spacers up front or blocks in the back. just a true 3in suspension lift for 285's on 16s.

that's up to you and your budget. you will have to pick out suspension parts you can afford/actually need. i can give you an idea of what you need to be looking for; you need to get at least 2.5-3" in the front and i'm not sure about the rear bc i don't have the tsb springs. but you would probably need to go with the 1.5" tsb aal. if you stick with the wheels you have, you need some wheel spacers. if you get aftermarket wheels that are 8 or 9" wide, you won't need the spacers. you also might want to look into new uca's, you don't have to have them, but they can help out. all of that should help you clear 33's. you can find all this stuff on toyteclifts.com. we can't pick this stuff out for you specifically because we don't know what you can afford or exactly what you want. they have complete lift kits on there also.

Nice Post +1 But I would go with 5100s at 2.5 with 285s and spidertrax. You might have to trim, but it looks good you dont need new UCA at 2.5
