    Well, I was wrong, and stupid wrong at that. The rubbing was on the plastic inside the wheel wells, not the sways. I should have known that. I gutted both front sides and cut off the tab on the bottom with some snips. Whammo, Full turning radius without any rubbing. 33x12.50 will fit all day long. I have about 3 fingers worth of space at full turn to play with as far as the sway bar goes.

    Welp, i heeded the advice. I did the blm. All i have left on my plans now is painting all the chrome to white. The chrome is growing on me a little, but I still hate it. I painted the grille emblem black, stripped the emblems off, and painted the tacoma emblems and put them back on (just the sides). I also bought aftermarket tail lights from LMperformance. Unfortunately, I dont have any pics of the rear yet, but im working on it. Here are some more before I put the rear tail lights on.

    Great man! I got them cheap too which makes them even better. The only thing was that they couldn't be balanced 100% because they were so heavy. I love the hard compound and they are awesome in rain, mud, and snow.

    I had to regear, I couldn't stand the bogging out all the time. 430s are turning out to be an awesome match.

    Good to hear you like them. I've been eyeing those tires for a while now. As soon as I get back to the states I'll be pulling the trigger!
