    I'm planning on lifting the truck sometime next month and I'm pretty sold on this combination, But I talked to a salesman on line at Rough Country and it seemed to me like he was just giving me the run around. I know I'm new to this but dang I'm not an idiot.

    - Rough Country 3 inch suspension lift for the 4wd, he said it would fit the 2wd as long as I had six lug. Which I do. He's not feeding me a line of crap is he? All it is, is spacers for the front and blocks and rear shocks for the back. I personally don't see why 2wd and 4wd would matter with that combination.

    And due to having a new baby boy money is always tight. So that being said I'm sticking with the factory TRD 16 inch wheels. I read alot of posts and believe I'm going with the BF Goodrich AT 285/75/16. Any one with this set up? Do they scrub alot or just barely?

    Any guidance or opinions would be greatly appreciated. :D

    With stock wheels, you need wheel spacers to clear the UCAs without rubbing them with 285/75/16 tires.


    That lift will fit your PreRunner, but it isn't a "true" suspension lift. It's just a spacer lift.



    Also, welcome to TW!

    Thank you derek,

    What tire size would be recommended if I was looking for a tall tire with that lift? I saw alot of people running that tire size but no one mentioned spacers. Are wheel spacers reasonably priced and worth it?

    I guess I would be willing to go with spacers if I couldn't get any taller tire than the 285/75.

    Am I making any sense? haha!

    Well, further looking took me to your build thread. Our trucks are the same except mine is four door, so seeing yours gives me a very good idea on what mine would look like with the 265/75 on factory's. awesome looking truck man. Thanks again.

    285/75/16 is probably the biggest you'd want to go with a 3-inch lift. I also forgot to mention you have to trim your inner fenders a bit in the front because you'll also rub there. You could go bigger, but then you'd be looking at some major trimming. :eek:


    265/75/16 is the biggest you can go without having to worry about rubbing anything and you wouldn't need wheel spacers with those.

    I had wheel spacers with my stock wheels and 285/75/16 tires and I had zero complaints. I just got rid of them when I got aftermarket wheels. :)
