k re did the post.. the lift took us about a day and a half.. took too much breaks installing the lift.. i put on 33"/12.5"/17" baja claw radial tires with 17"/9" pro comp 6001 wheels.. i might run 35"s.. the 33"s look kinda small..

i've seen tacos running 35"s on 6" lifts.. does the frame need some fabbing for the 35"s to clear?

You can, however, you may rub the cab mount (depending upon tire size) and not get full lock to lock wheel turning (due to rim hitting the knuckle.) I am running a 6" lift with factory off Road rims on my truck. I threw on some spidertrax spacers and have had no issues at all.

Randall your truck looks nice man! I have the same truck as you except indigo ink (dark blue) I like how there are three other tacos in the front yard in your first pic. Classic HI Life. All my buddies have Tacomas as well.

Only if you run wheel spacers. The 16" rims can't clear the tie rod.

yeah.. you need to order at least a 1.25 inch wheel spacer (only on the front end) to clear the tie rods.. thats why i'm able to mount and run my stock wheels tires..

how much tire you got sticking out of the fenders? im gonna go up to 4" later and im probably gonna run 33s, i like that bulldog look, but no so much where i get hassled by the cops. looks like you got a good amount of tire outside the wells.

nice work!
