    Took off the FN Pro’s dark gray gloss, Nitto G2’s 265/70R17 and slapped on the FN Pro’s bronze and Nitto G2’s 285/70R17....no rubbing with mud flaps so far.

    Looks damn good. FN's are definitely close to the top of my list.

    Looks like a 2-3" spacer lift up front.

    Edit: @SurfratTX I'm not hating. Just answering based off of what I see in the picture. I have no qualms with anyone lifting their truck in whatever fashion they choose fits their needs/uses.

    And I dig the new wheels on the Quicksand. I've debated doing the same.

    Haha....no problema!
    From an earlier post I made, lifts and all:
    Thanks!
    I did tons of reading on TW lifts etc., pros/cons etc and on ReadyLifts.
    And on the web.
    So figured out what was best and most applicable for me.

    On my current 2017 TRD OR:
    Zero rub even when cranked all the way to turn going up or down an upgrade.

    What I desired:
    Better ride/dampening via the Bilsteins.
    A slight lift and wanted to level the truck.
    Didn't need a hard core lift package for the kind of driving/use I do, and with that in mind wanted to keep the costs minimal but still good for the truck.

    Tires: 285/70R17, Nitto G2 Terra Grapplers
    Bilstein 3rd gen 5100 all around, set on 1 up front if I remember correctly, to level truck.
    ReadyLift, this particular one fits the Tacoma 2016+ :
    [​IMG]
    $228 ReadyLift 69-5212 Lift Kit
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IOYRF6G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


    I got the Readylift on a Amazon Gold box deal, paid $169.75 I just looked, it's $227 now.

    Bought Bilsteins from Headstrong, Marie who is super knowledgeable, super service, got to my house like in 3 days after ordering:
    $339.99

    Installed Readylift and Bilsteins at a local off-road shop for $480. He checked the alignment, didn't need one.
    I talked to him quite a bit about ReadyLifts and block lifts in general, etc.
    He agreed for what I was doing driving wise, it was fine.

    Most of my off-roading is beach/sand, some out west in Big Bend National Park on gravel, sand, rock and also took a trip out to Moab. Can't say I did any off-roading that you had to have 4x4 engaged other than sand.
    The 'good' thing with the Readylift is that it gives me the same ride I had with the Bilsteins on a 2016 TRD OR I had, not lifted, that hurricane Harvey totaled.
    My total lift is 2.50" that I measured from the hub's.
    Truck is level.
    I had everything checked at 200 miles, all was good.
    I'm 6'-3" so I can still get in my truck without any step etc. ; )
