    working on it..need some advice
    i got my 11' Tacoma 4banger 5lug.
    looking to do something with my wheels and tires.
    and a lift or something. i know that 235/75 is the biggest on the stock steelies. and i heard that if you do the black box mod you can fit 30x9.5/15 with no lift and no rubbing. i really want to do that but its not 100%. its just what people heard. so if anyone knows if its true please inform me on it. my taco looks like a little girl with those ugly tires. but i still love her

    I put a Fat Bob'son my five lug before I sold it. The ride was horrible. If I had to do it again, I would have stuck with the 235/75. It was a great compromise and the ride was fantastic.

    Stock... For now...
    wait... whoa.
    dc 5 lug.

    Don't see too many of those driving around. Especially pre-2012 dc 5 lugs.

    depending on your bank account, screw the whole fatbobs idea... go LT. But then again, nobody ever has the money for that, so I believe all the info you have about tire sizes is correct.

    Not to hate or anything, but I bet that thing feels slow as a dog. Double cab 4 cylinder just sounds cray to me.

    ^It's lighter than an Access Cab 4cyl 4x4, which has been offered since the beginning.

    True. But where I live there's no need to speed.

    Yuppp ... No other mods. I went with some ProComps 7169??? i think that was the model. 15x8 and 30x9.5 tires. Had to put 3mm spacers in front to clear the calipers though. 5 Luggers should have came with 30x9.5! haha my Tacoma looks and feels like a truck after the bigger tires.

    Isn't the MT kit for the 5-luggers around $2500 as opposed to $4k+ for the LT? That seems more affordable, and perhaps a little more tarmac friendly too, yes?

    Nice looking truck! I have a '12 reg cab Taco 5 lugger and have been looking at the Ready Lift 2.75 lift. Do you have a link for the Fat Bob 5 lugger lift?
