    Hello everyone,
    I just bought a white, 04 tacoma, access cab, white, 4 cyl.. I am wanting to put 33 inch tires with a 4 inch suspension lift. Any pics of what this would look like or feed back would be very helpfull.. Also, I am wondering how a 4 cyl would do with big tires and a lift.. Thanks. :)

    Hey welcome to TW! with 33`s on you will feel the weight of them especially when your wheelin, you WILL have to re gear to like 4.88 or for real performance 5.29! i would go 5.29`s with any change from stock tire on a 4cyl

    Welcome to TW! In regards to the lift and tires, you should be fine for the most part. I have a 4cyl with a 3" Old Man Emu suspension lift and 33s. The tires will rub the fender and if you get 12.50" wide tires, it'll probably rub the frame too. Most of the rubbing issues can be solved with a sledge hammer to the pinch weld area.
    The 4cyl can handle 33s pretty well. I live at 7,200ft and it tends to struggle at highway speeds up in the mountains or if there's high wind. Don't think you have much of any of that where you're located.

    In the future, use the search option for questions though, it works well!

    Welcome! :wave: Where in Virginia are you located?

    A three inch lift will clear 33's, it's much easier to lift three inches than four. When you exceed the three inch mark you have to replace Control Arms and add a Drop Bracket to allow for the Cv to operate.
