    3" Toytec Lift. with Aluminum spacers in the front and add a leaf in the rear
    Alright here....i added a 3" lift to my 2006 tacoma. the lift was a toytec lift with front spacers and an add-a-leaf for the rear. my truck looks great. However i still have the stock 17" wheels on with 32" tires on them with BFG 33" sitting in the garage waiting to be put on. with my stock wheels and the 32's, the a-arm is brought down and sits within 5 eighths of an inch from the tire. Its very close and makes me feel uncomfortable. i am putting my BFG 285/70/17 on my stock tire and am affraid it will rub and not work? Is it because of the stock wheels and i need a deeper dish? or did i choose a bad lift? please ill take all the advice i can get

    You will need wheel spacers to clear the UCA's with 285's on stock wheels

    I run 1.5" spacers on mine with stock TRD OR rims. 285/75/16 tires. Clears my UCAs just fine. If you loose the front mud flaps and trim a little plastic there's no rub either!
