    I have a prerunner double cab and the time has come to order the
    5100's. I currently have the TSB in the rear. If I were to set the 5100's
    at 1.75, do I still need to get a 1.5 AAL? Or is the factory TSB enough?

    My next question is for tires. I am planning on saving some $$$ by keeping the factory 17" TRD Sport wheels and having them powdercoated at a buddies shop. What's the widest tire I can fit on there and avoid rubbing? I know that without lifting I can squeeze a 265/70/17. Will the added lift give any room for a wider tire?

    The TSB rear springs are enough for the 1.75 settings. Thats what I got on my 10' dbl cab. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the tip, not adding a AAL will save me some. Your truck looks great with that setup. Anyone shed some light on tires???

    Now when you say wider? Do you mean left to right or taller up and down? I believe you should be able to fit at least some 31"s with the front lifted 1.75"s, maybe even bigger but I'm not positive. I know with a 2.5" lift you can fit 32"s and possible 33"s with some minor trimming.;)

    I meant wider from side to side. My stock duelers are 265/65/17, I know 265/70/17's will fit, just wondering if I can go wider from side to side without any rubbing.
