That's highly dependant on the tire size you want......

Also you have combined three of my least favorite things (spacer kits, rockstars, and 20's) all into one, but it's your truck so pay no mind to me.

Get ready to spend a couple of grand on a 6" drop bracket lift

You can fit 32's on stock suspension and 33's with a 3" lift.

First there are a few different kinds of spacer lifts, there is the kind that just bolts on the top of the existing shock that spaces it down to give lift. The problem that can come from running this kind of spacer is the shock will now be allowed to droop to far downward causing binding and damage to ball joints, 4×4 axle cv’s, and steering joints. The other issue you might have is since the shock is now just pushed down when you bottom out the suspension on or off-road instead of hitting the bumpstops you will just bottom out the shock. This can lead to some hefty damage. The next kind of spacer lift available are the preload spacers. These will usually cause the coil springs to be preloaded to give lift. The side effect to this type of lift is the shock valving is not designed for the extra preload of the spring giving the ride a bad bouncy feel that sometimes feels uncontrolled. And in some cases we have seen the spring coilbind causing damage to the shock and the frame. This is because the spring is designed to move about 1/2 its total length so when you pre-load them they are now compressed to much so near bottom out they will bind before you hit the bumpstops.

Recommended tire size with that is 265/75... id steer clear of spacers, IMO. Your gonna have a real hard time stuffing 35's with just 3in of lift

265/75/20?! Those are actually 35's, if they were to exist....

If you want it to look mean, I would recommend a 3" suspension lift (a real suspension lift like OME shocks and springs...no spacers!), 16" wheels, and 285/75/16's, which are 33's.


If I saw a tacoma with a 6" lift and 20" rockstars, the first thing I would think is MALL CRAWLER!

You would be real surprised at how much just a wider more aggressive tire will make the truck look meaner. If you dont offroad much a spacer would get your more height but your ride quality will sacrifice.
