Tacoma Lift

I am new to this forum and had a question that i hoped someone could help me with. I bought a 2011 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 and i wanna lift it and put 285/70r17 on it what lift is best for me to use in your opinion to keep a smooth ride. I do not do much off road other than hunting. Just bwant to make sure it is done right.Thanks in advance for any help.

With 285's, get ready to trim!

What's your budget for the lift and how tall do you want to go?

Dont really have a budget. My original intention was to do whatever lift would clear a 33-12.50 18 or 20 Toyo MT but was told by the lift guy ive been talking to that the only way i could do that was with a 6" lift . He sold me a set of 17''x9'' rockstars and now i cant use Toyos because the smallest size i can get in those is a 295/70r 17 so im lost dont really know what to do or where to start

If you don't have a budget don't get a spacer and blocks lift.

I believe you need the top plate spacer for the full 3" with the OME. 265/70/17 will clear fine. You will need to likely at least do some trimming for 285s.

EDIT: wait for clarification on the spacer I may be wrong.

Double cab 4x4, you will need the top plate spacer to get to 3" of lift. You should also invest in new upper control arms with a 3" lift.

Light Racing but try Fat Bob's Garage or Metaltech4x4. Both will be cheaper than Toytec for that part. Sometimes they do come up for sale used and there are group buys every so often where a particular vendor drops the price to clear off the shelves.
