    Have a 2011 DC wanting to run either 33x1350R20 Swamper Radial Iroks or 295/55R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers with 20x9 KMC XD wheels. Looking at the 3" Toytec with front coils. Was wondering if anyone out there has this setup and with pics. Anything else need to be done to get to fit? Thanks

    stick with the 295's, 13.5 wide is a bit much with a 3" lift......

    ya stick with the 295s. 20s on a 4x4 is kinda weird IMO but if u dont go 4 wheelin that often, its cool.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    X2 and 20's are a little big for 33's Id go with 35's they look a little better with the 20's. But if you planing on wheelin or just a mall crawler?

    Oh and welcome [​IMG]

    use the truck for hunting also but mostly riding around. Eventually want a 6" Procomp and go with a larger 20" tire. Seen plenty of Tacomas with 33s and 18s, like that look just would like to see a Tacoma with 33s and 20s

    Why waste money on a 3 inch lift? Save it for the 6 if you really want it.

    I am planning on running 33x12.50x20s as well with a 3" lift. I have a friend with a 3" spacer lift running the same size tires/wheels and it looks GREAT! I am going to end up doing the OME 885s adn the 5100s not the spacers just bc its more reliable and should provide a better ride than the spacer kits. I had an 06 that i put a 3" toytec space kit and aal lift and it was ok but did ride a little rough. So for $100 more you can get new coils and shocks and a better ride!!

    You won't be able to turn. Even fitting 285's requires trimming and sometimes chopping your cab mounts.

    Spacers would make it far, far worse by pushing out the turning arc radius.
