I have an 03 PreRunner Xcab and it looks like it is about time for some new shoes. I dont offroad per say, but I do travel some unmaintained/abused dirt roads. After rain, some of them are quite the challenge (Alabama red mud). I am currently running stock type "large car tires" as I call them, and am very unhappy. I want something in the 285/33" m/t area and see that a lift will be neccesary. But I see that alot of posters on this forum say to avoid spacer lifts. Why? Is this advice for serious offroaders? Or are spacer lifts just a bad idea? I dont need much articulation and do not abuse the suspension in any way. I just need a tad of clearance.
The reasoning for the larger tire is to reduce the torque just a tad at the ground. Not to mention that I love the way a Yota looks on 33's.
