    So i just installed a 3" lift (http://tinyurl.com/bma2xrw) on my tacoma. I have moto metal wheels that have a backspacing of 4.50 I believe. My question is if i put a set of 285/75/16 A/T tires on how much trimming will have to be done if any? Thanks for the Help

    A good bit of plastic and possibly chop the cab mounts. Search around the site, this question has been covered alot.

    just a bit of the back plastic of the fender flare ...not much at all .. can use a nice razor blade or dremel .. and you will be good to go .. and kinda depends on if you are running mt or at tires.... at dont have as deep tread so dont catch on as mutch on the boddy pieces..

    If it wont be flexing you probly wont have to do the cab mount chop, but it varies from truck to truck. You will still have to trim plastic inside the fender well though.

    wat?
    also, a good alignment w/ around 2.5-3* of caster will help out on less trimming at the rear of the fender well.

    They have refereed me to another tire shop that will do my alignment at a good price. so hopefully I will not have to do the chop on the cab.
