Leveling kit and tire size

I have a 2010 taco sport edition 17" rims and looking for the best leveling kit. Any of you guys with experience please let me know what you think. How about tire size?

Your "best" leveling kit is 5100's but I had a super crap spacer and ran 33" MTs. Wheeling will def cause rubbing but nothing a sharp knife can't take care of.

What's up man. Their are tons and tons of threads on here with exactly what your looking for. I stubbled across this forum looking for ideas and read for days and learned alot about it just by reading other peoples threads and looking at pictures. After all my reading on this site and to give my truck just a little bit of lift, I decided to go with the Bilstein 5100's up front and a rear 1.5 add-a-leaf. Parts came to 170 for the Bistein's and 80 for the rear add-a-leaf from wheelers off road. I went with this set up because from everything I read alot of people said this was a solid inexpensive way to go. As for tires all I could fit with this set up was 265/70r/17's on 17x9 wheels I bought off of Desert Rat. Good luck with your decision. Search on and look for pics! Hours of fun on here.

Im working out of the country right now so these are some pictures that my sister sent to me when it was done. I haven't got to drive it yet but just from everything I read about the Bilstein's they ride great.

After:



As for a lift it's not much of one but it does make the tires not crowd the wheel well as much.
