Tacoma 6in Fabtech lift, Add 2in body lift?

Hey, i have an 05, Radiant Red Crew Cab Prerunner, i have a 6in fabtech suspension lift on it right now, with 35, mud grapplers, my tires rub really bad when i turn right, so i was thinking of putting a 2inch body lift to clear them. but im not sure if i should do that, any suggestions? should i just get smaller tires, or is their another way to clear them without lifting it more, any ideas or opinions would be really helpful thank you!



thats the truck.

If I'm correct your rubbing on the plastic on inside of fenders? If so body lift would work but no one on this site including I would recommend it. I say trim your plastic.

I used to have 35" mud Grapplers and they were really wide and rubbed way worse than my current tires.

What is it rubbing? I dont think you have cut very much, guys run 35s on 2nd gens with 3" of lift and a cab mount chop and other cutting of plastic. Hell im gonna do this to fit 35s when my 33s wear out.

I would cut more, but i need new tires anyway so if theres other tires that decrease the rubbing and it still looks good thats a better option for me.

Why do you need different tires?

I like how the Nitto Trail Grapplers look.

No body lift. Cut shit or get different tires.
