    Had my 2002 taco for about a year and I am ready to throw a lift on it.

    I do not go four wheeling or anything of the sort so I dont need all the flex and crap that comes with it.

    Thinking of doing this setup.

    Lift Tires for my stock rims

    I know it will prob rub a bit but I mainly was wondering exactly how much haha.

    anyone running something similar?

    currently how she sits. (thats with 1560lbs of gravel in the back so she is squatting a bit)

    I had planned to use the stockers if possible? sorry I dont know much about the sizing of them thats why I wanted to post here before pulling the trigger.

    Its basically my beat around town truck and run errands to the dump. I just wanted it to look a little cooler haha.

    I read on here that the stock offset is what causes the issues with rubbing but I wasnt sure which wheels that affected.

    Nothing wrong with looking cooler. You'll need to get the offset right to keep those tires off your frame and possibly your UCA. I run a 285/75 now on a 16x7 2000ish 4Runner Limited rim. The offset is +15mm. Barely cleared my UCA and the frame rub at full lock in both directions was intolerable. I'm running a 1" spacer (which puts my offset around -10) and I get just the slightest frame rub turning left.

    Have a picture of the rim?

    Offset is usually noted on the inside of the rim.

    Those are +15 also. You'll need spacers. 1" will work fine. If you want them to poke out a bit more, you can run a 1.25".

    That makes perfect sense thanks. I had linked a pic of the truck in the first post. Did it show up? it was an Imgur link

    I am also not against getting a different rim if needed (like you did). Im sure I can find a set pretty cheap used.

    Oh cool so you are saying that I can just run my stockers with a one inch spacer? That would be perfect!

    I have the same size tire on the same size rim and that's what I had to do. You'll probably have a little more clearance since the tire is an AT. MTs tend to be a little bigger than the size noted on the side wall when they're new.

    backspacing he should be looking at for frame clearance

    amounts to the same thing since BS and offset are related.

    Sheesh, Now I cant figure out which lift to go with. Im not looking to spend a ton of money since this is my beater truck but I dont want to get a junky lift either!

    Is there something similarly priced (but better quality) that I am not seeing?

    related but can be very different depending on wheel width and sometimes the design of wheel itself

    Yea the first kit also has grease-able shackles.

    Not sure how important that is.
