I need help. Experienced lifter guide me!

This is my first lift and wheel/tire swap, be gentle with me. I have read tons of threads regarding this topic and still need help.

I will have 16 x 8 wheels with 4.5 BS. I WANT 285/75/16 tires to wrap them in. My budget isn't looking too hot right now, so I'm guessing I'll have to save up some more...

1. Stock Suspension + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 265/75/16 AT Tires = Playing it safe

2. Bilstien 5100s @ 2.5" with AAL + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 285/75/16 AT Tires + Dremel work + no UCA replacement = You wish buddy

3. OME for 3" with AAL + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 285/75/16 AT Tires + UCA's + Dremel work = Good to go

4. Spindle Lift for 4" with AAL + 16 x 8 Wheels 4.5 BS + 285/75/16 AT Tires = GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Currently, my plan is #1, until I can save up.

I was hoping #2 would work however. I believe SilverTacoZack and Se7en both fit 285/60/18 on stock suspension with dremel work. With the same backspace, 285/75/16's are 35mm's taller than 285/60/18's (18x9), so wouldn't 5100's give me the room I need? Please correct me if I'm wrong. A big thank you in advance.

I've got about 2.5 inches of life up front. With the eibach spring 5100 @.85 set up. With 285/70/17 tires. Trimmed the front plastic and mud flap. Only rub on big bumps and in reverse on mud flap.

I say #2 or #3. 4 if ya got the money and are a prerunner!

I'm a 2nd gen though, and I'm not 100% sure if 2.5" up front with dremel work will cut it. Everything I read tells me "No buddy, try again!".

stick with 265/75's and no rubbing whatever you do.... or If I were to do it over again, I would get the spindles and 285's, then later I would get some better coilovers/uca's, leaf pack.

good luck

Yeah I was gonna play it safe with the 265/75/16's and then upgrade to 285/75/16's when I could. Hence the 16x8 rims with 4.5 BS to start. But why bother with all that when I can just either A. save up, or B. stuff them with eibach's as wolf mentioned. Since wolf confirmed minor rubbage on a 2nd gen, I might have to go that route.

Do it! I don't think I would have been as happy with 265's. Even the minor rubbing is annoying when it does happen, it looks the best.

Gonna have to save up just a little bit more then...
Going with #2.

16x8 wheels 4.5 BS
285/75/16 AT tires
5100's all around
Eibach coils, front Billy's at .85
2" AAL
Remove flaps
Dremel some triangles off
Mount/balance/installation/allignment fees

Now I guess I have to just worry about the spare...
Let me know if anything is wrong.

WOW that looks awesome! I have the Raceline Renegade 6's in Black on order right now. 16" with 4.5 BS I have the stock rims and tires and it looks tiny with my OME 886's and Dakar springs. Can you do me a favor? Could you take front and rear measurements from the (ground to fender) I am debating the whole 265/75 and 285/75 tires?
