Need suggestions on lift. And pics if you have them..

I have a 2011 TRD Sport and I would like to lift it and put some bigger tires on the stock rims. What type of lift are people using and what size can fit on my rims without rubbing?

I was looking at lifts such as the rough country that just has the 2 in block in the back w/ shocks and 3 in spacer in the front. I dont really want anything to fancy. Any suggestions help. Im just not sure what to get..

Post your pics if you have any! Thanks!

This is how it sits now stock

^^^ Sounds great, spacers all 4 corners and you're good!

PS - The dealership can put one on for you too!

Come on dude, I know you're tired of newb questions but you don't need to be giving them shitty advice. Just don't post if you don't want to help.

OP,

Do some searching around on here for some more info, but spacers/blocks are not recommended.

Just because you don't want fancy doesn't mean you can't do it right. 5100s up front, along with the TSB rear leafs will be a nice setup that will ride well and while it will not let you fit 285s, you can still have a little lift to go along with new tires.

As it is right now, you can fit 265/70-17s. If you are wanting to go bigger than that, you will be looking at new coils, new UCAs to allow for proper alignment, etc...

You can with Tapatalk, or you can host them with Photobucket and then use the [IMG] tags.

I have bilstein struts on all 4 corners, stock in the back but I set the bilsteins in front to 1.75 inches with 265/75/16 duratrac's, truck is perfectly level now, let me know if you need anymore advice, would be glad to help.



This is what it looked like stock with a 2 1/2 inch rake in front

check out my build thread. i love the way my truck sits and i think it is the perfect height but that is just my opinion. billies and aal are a great "inexpensive" lift and it is a pretty simple install if you have the right tools and a buddy who doesn't mind helpin ya out

My apologies to OP, 5100's all around with the front set at desired height is the way to go! Spend some time reading about diff lift options in this suspension section and get an idea of what works and what guys are running. I got a little frustrated because it's been covered a few times before, no hard feelings!

Good luck!
