    Bought: Icon stage 3 with Dakar springs.
    Decision: Tires? Keeping stock sport wheels. Added a poll, so help me out! Not interested in 285s.

    Ok so I've researched and want a 3" lift kit for my 2012 Tacoma Dbsb. I was thinking of ordering the OME kit with the complete leaf pack, diff. Drop, and top spacers from Toytec. For the tires, maybe some BFG A/T KO's and grabbing some FJ TT matte black 16" wheels. Haven't decided on the spidery tax spacers yet or if I want to get 265/75/16 or the 285's. I drive 80% highway. What are yall's thoughts on this and what am I missing/what would you more experienced Taco owners do with that budget (on topic!) thanks in advance and looking forward to it!

    I've got the same plan as you, except I'm looking at Duratracs instead of BFGs. I've been reading a lot about 265s vs 285s and still can't really decide. I really like the look of 285s, but since I'm mostly highway/road driving too, I'm worried about gas mileage suffering. I'm getting the BAMF CMC (cab mount chop) plates installed soon either way. That way it will be easier to go with 285s if I feel like it...which I'll probably end up with. I also purchased the stainless steel extended brake lines.

    From my same research, looks like your budget is really close. Just remember you'll have to pay for install (unless DIY), alignment after the lift, brake lines + fluid, and possibly re-calibration to ABS computer at dealership

    OME complete kit with dakars, LR UCAs, Seat covers, weathertechs, anytime foglight mod, ABS kill switch, locker anytime mod, powered sub, halos, leer topper, aux/ipod hookup.
    Sounds like a good route, from what I've heard you won't be needing those diff drops though

    Luckily a buddy of mine owns a shop and will let me have at it after hours! The extended brake lines is what I also need to consider! Thanks!

    Good lift choice OP. you won't need the diff drop and I'd get the duratracs over the bfg's.

    Nice, that will definitely help. I found a group a guys here in Houston who said they'd help me. Much better than having someone work on the truck that doesn't actually care about her! I also forgot to mention I bought Light Racing UCAs too.

    Here's the lines I got. Ordered yesterday morning, shipped yesterday afternoon, I'll probably have them tomorrow or Thursday. Awesome turnaround time. Some guys on here say they aren't 100% needed for the OME 3". However, it's supposed to make the leaf pack install much easier (even though only an additional 2"), and I'd rather have SS lines with the extra room for travel. Good purchase in my mind.

    Oh ya, and I've read the same as ppl are saying above, probably won't need the diff drop. Some trucks, it's actually made things worse.

    Your setup sounds pretty good to me. Not sure what the offsets are on the FJ's so you might or might not need wheel spacers. You might also want to look into getting some aftermarket UCA's.

    The FJ wheels are 15mm offset

    Oh okay. You will probably need some wheel spacers depending on what size tires you get.

    Well the FJ's are 15 mm offset so I'm not sure I would need wheel spacers if I go the 285 route, guessing if I did that would give me like 4.5 inches of back spacing?

    Um I'm not positive what it would give you with the spacers. I have a -12mm offset and thats like a 4.5" backspacing.

    No CMC or anything? Must be nice. I had to cut quite a bit of plastic fender liner at the front of the wheel and I need to trim my fender flare at the back of the wheel and also do a CMC to completely get rid of any rubbing at full flex.

    Yeah you might want to look into getting some aftermarket UCA's as well if your going to go over 2.5"s up front.

    Do you have spacers to use the stock rims with 285's?
