    Aloha all,

    After much reading online about lifts I have decided to keep it simple. We don't have crazy wheeling out here and if i ever move back to the mainland I will be going SAS, so for now to get a little lift and nicer tires I have decided to go with the following:

    Pro Comp 3" Lift with add-a-leafs

    Question about tires tho.....

    We wheel on the beach, so we have to air down, that being said, if i go with a 18" rim and 33" tire, do you think it will be OK running around 15LBS when on the sand....

    Don't want to DE-bead a tire...

    I think you should be OK, i had on my 84 4runner before welds typhoons 16x14`s i think on 33 SX swampers and would let it out to like 10 lbs no problem, so 2 more inches should be fine i think it depends more on how wide the rims are, like if your running the wide Real rims like a lot of the Hawaiian braddahs out there then that would NOT work lol it would pop as i seen it happen. But hopefully someone else can give you a solid answer, if not call Darryl at DH built

    I'm running the ProComp 3" lift and I am running 33's on an 18" wheel. I have dropped the pressure down to 15 psi, and did fine in sand. On rocks it's a little scary bc it the side wall doesn't keep the wheel from contacting the rocks. I wouldn't recommend the 18's mainly bc the tires are ridiculously expensive.

    Do you have any pictures of your truck? Also, are you happy with this kit?

    The kit is ok, rides pretty good, off road it doesn't flex that well. I plan on removing my sway bar so it rides smoother and getting more flex in the front.
