    Hi all,

    I'm new to the tacoma world, but not new to Toyota Trucks. I'm a recent transplant from Yotatech.com. Prior to this, I've had an old school Toyota pickup (22R) and a 1st gen 4runner 4x4 (3VZ).

    This is my first Automatic PreRunner truck. I bought this truck strictly because it's an automatic, all of my vehicles have always been 5 speed manual and the wife can't drive any of them. So this will solve the problem of me driving her everywhere when she needs a truck for things. :D

    In the past, I've always had 33s on my Toyotas.. but now I'm a bit reluctant to do the same set up without seeking some advice.

    Here's the concern, if I put 33s or 285s or 305s (not sure yet) on this PreRunner, 2.7l, automatic, will it still move? I know the 2.7 is not a race motor by all means, but the real concern is, how is it paired up with an automatic trans, and bigger tires? My buddy has a 2.7, 4x4, with 305s, but he has a 5 speed and his truck handles it quite well. Will it be the same with an auto trans?

    I appreciate the feedback, advice or experiences you kind folks can share.
