    I have a 2011 DCSB TRD Offroad. I've been looking at lift kits for a while trying to decide what I want. I currently have 265/75/16 Toyo MT's right now and want to go up to a 33" tire. From all the reading I've done, all the 3" lifts are not enough (my suspension will have to be able to make full travel at deer camp), and the thought of cutting doesn't excite me at all. The 6" lifts are just too much for my taste, so I was wondering if there is a good quality 4" lift for my truck?

    I'm good with anything as long as it's not spacers, and works with my 4X4

    can't do a spindle lift on a 4x4... I don't think you'll get a 4" lift anywhere... 3" all day long though

    I've got a buddy who had a 3" lift with 33" tires and I saw what he had to cut and trim. I'm not into that. I've seen the 6" lifts on some of the threads. I don't really want to go to 35's and the 33's look too small with the 6" to me. Guess I might just have to stick with the 265/75/16's

    Do you ever completely flex your suspension?

    Sharp looking truck man. Where did you order your RCD lift from?

    Have you completely flexed the suspension with the wheels turned?
    If so, did you have any scrubbing?

    Yes and yes. I dont think that there is a solution out there other than stock or heavily modified Glass LT that won't scrub at full cycle and full turn lock.
