    I have a 4x4 sr5 access cab w/ the non-TSB springs. I want to go with a modest lift. I've ordered toytec c/o's to level the front out and give me future lifting options.

    For the rear I'm thinking about the 1.5 AAL from toytec along with some OME rear shocks.

    ^^Using all that, I'm looking to go up 1.5" in the rear and 2.5" in the front giving me 1" front rake. For tires, I'm thinking 265/75/16 BFG AT on the stock sr5 steelies.

    Anyone have any issues with that setup? AND does anyone have any pics from their rig that has a similar setup?

    Thanks:D

    just put on a 2.5 in lift on the front today. don't have an pictures yet because it was dark when i finished. i did measure though, and without any additional lift in the rear (i have the tsb) the rear is only 1.25 inches lower, so if your lift behaves likje mine, you'll only have .25 inches of rake. not sure if that would be a problem for what you're looking for, but i figure that any information helps. ither than that, it looks like you have a nice setup in your future.

    no worries:)

    I did realize though after my original post, that since you're looking at the toytec coilovers, they are essentially "infinately" adjustable between their min and max, so if you do want 1 inch of rake, you could just simply lower the front until you have the measurements you want.

    I would recomend getting some aftermarket wheels. 265-75-16 are a little to big for the wheels. I would get a least an 8inch wheel if you want the tire to fully sit on the ground.

    Mine sounds simular
    I have the TSB in the back, gave me about 1 inch
    I have the 5100s in the front set at .85, gave me about 1 inch
    I painted my stock steel rims, didnt have to mess with sensors.
    I put on Goodyear Duratracs 265/75R16
    Very happy with the set up, no rubbing or vibrations
