    Hey I was doing some research on building my truck when I come across all this useful info on here. Putting on a 3 inch skyjacker lift, 33inch pro comp mud terrains, and looking for an exhaust system so the air comin through the k&n fipk can leave as easy as it comes in! Any one know if I am gonna need wheel spacers to get that rubber under it? They are 33x12.50x15

    Welcome to TacomaWorld it sounds like you're going to be busy.
    I'm not a tire guy but based on other threads I've read I'm going to say that needing spacers depends on what wheels you're running.

    Yeah I guess I might have to get it together first and see how it steers. Now that you mention it, probably depends on how deep that wheel is. Lift kit showed up yesterday, tires probably tomorrow, gonna tie up loose ends and make sure I can use the big shop. Hopefully I don`t have it up in the air for longer than a weekend!

    Welcome to TW. An exciting weekend planned, eh. Like Roland said, spacer issue depends on the wheels. I don't think a 12.5" width tire will fit on a 7" wide stock wheel, but I could be wrong.

    I checked that wheel thing out at the shop, I did buy some used wheels for it I think they are called core racing and they look a lot different than the stock wheels. As far as the width they told me it should work. We tried a rim on the truck to make sure it fit over the brakes and it looked good. I guess I`m gonna have to keep my fingers crossed! I always appreciate more input though!

    I got her done. Finally, parts did not all show up at the same time. I`m pretty stoked about the whole thing though. Gonna post some pictures of the end result tonight!
