    Yes, plan on bumper and winch eventually. Slowly transitioning from jeep with 35s into toyota with load capacity and backing off on serious wheeling. The Taco is not going where my jeep with 35s and 30" of flex has gone. Good load capacity is key. My Leer canopy will balance the Dakar rears about 1/2 way.

    HEre is my setup with the OME 886 coils and Dakar leaf pack and I love it. Way better than stock and great offroad. But I do have the ARB bumper and M8000 winch.

    Good to hear your real happy with the suspension taco084gp. I'll get the bumper and winch, just not together with the lift. I'm still going to get the 886 coils and just deal with the stiffer ride until I get the bumper.

    What tires did you run?
    Any rubbing?
    How long the lift been on there, does the rear settle a bit. IIRC, the Dakar leaves are supoosed to give level ride with a load of about 500# in the bed. Just wondering as I have OME spring over on my jeep (80's Toy 4runner front springs) and they have never settled a bit and I've worked em plenty.

    I have run 255-85R16 BFG KM2's on it for my mud tires but now I run 245-65R16 Toyo M/T. The 255 were real close to rubbing but did not. I just didnt like the MPG loss and the re-gearing. So back to stock sizes now. I run a different set for Hwy use. They are 265-75R16 Toyo A/T.
    I have had the lift on for about 2.5 yrs, have had over 1200 lbs in the bed and tow a 7x14 fully enclosed trailer with quads in it. That trailer totals about 4000 lbs. I have no sagging in the back end of the truck. But I run all 7 leafs on my setup. I do have a slight lean towards the front as like stock is. But I like that setup for me. Some prefer the level look.
    Now the front has settled maybe a 1/2" but the back has not so far.

    Thanks for the info.

    Any pics of the 255/85 tires on the truck?
    No compression of the 1200lb load and trailer?
    Did the bigger tires ever rub at all since the lift is well broke in?

    Off to tirerack . com to check on sizing.

    The 1200lbs in the truck was just that. I didnt have the trailer on it at that time. But it was level on the truck. The back springs are a great setup. Here is a couple of pics of the tire setup.

    I really like the 33" tire without rubbing on stock rims a lot, a whole lot. No trimming is a nice option.

    I found the following tires in the same size after about an hour search. Looks like some form of Cooper tire is the way I'll go considering I know my local American Tire can get them and I like his shop. I like the Dean the best so far if I can find it as it appears the least MT-ish. I think I'm finally ready to pull the trigger on this lift and tire combo.

    Hankook - mud profile
    Cooper discoverer - mud profile
    Interco TRXUS - mud
    National Commando A/T 255/85 R16
    Laramie Trailcutter R/T 255/85 R16
    Toyo OPEN COUNTRY M/T 255/85 R16
    Toyo M 5 255/85 R16
    Maxxis MT-762 Bighorn 255/85/16


    There's more, see the link. Nice to know the options are out there.
    I just like the idea of not cutting my fender liner if I don't have to simply for a narrower tire.

    And another link, with pics. All in the quest for the new tire with no rub.

    And more options copied from another thread from 07 with some redundancy.

    Mastercraft Courser M/T = $120.00 Internet
    Dean Durango Radial M/T = ? Dont know where to find it!
    National Tires Commando A/T = ? Dont know where to find it!
    National Tires Chapparal A/P = ? Dont know where to find it!
    Toyo M55 = $207.00 Cant Recall
    Dunlop Rover RVXT = $150.00 Discount Tire & Sams Club
    Cooper Discover ST = $169.00 Discount Tire
    Maxxis MT 762 Bighorn = Cant Find a price
    Republic Trail Mark Radial APR = ? Dont know where to find it!
    BFG Mud Terrain = $172.99 Costco
    Goodyear Wrangler AT = ? Dont know where to find it!
    Kelly Tire Safari ATR = = ? Dont know where to find it (current catalog nor website shows this tire)!

    And one last link of a truck actually setup with this size in a Cooper Discovery. I have found my combination.
