    is this all I need? and is this a good set up?

    6” Performance System for 05-07 Toyota Tacoma 4WD / 2WD 6Lug - FAB-K7001D

    1 - FTS26006BK - TACOMA 05 4WD BOX 1
    1 - FTS26007BK - TACOMA 05 4WD BOX 2
    1 - FTS26008 - TACOMA 05 4WD 2.5 COILOVER BOX
    2 - FTS81037 - DIRT LOGIC 2.25 NON RESI

    also tires/wheels it says i can go

    Tire - 315/70R17 - Wheel – 17 x 8 w/ 4 5/8” B/S
    is that correct?

    and if i Get the All pro off road front bumper.. would that clear me from any trimming?


    I hope this make sense.. spending a lot of money just want to get it right:(

    My biggest problem was the body mounts... I would also go with a less wide of a tire... i used the tire size that Fabtech recommended and it rubs like a bitch everywhere! esp the body mounts.... eeeekkk

    Looks like what you need. Go with a 17x9 w/ 4.5" BS and 0mm offset for wheel spec and the 35's. You very well may need to do the body mount chop to fit the 35's without rubbing.

    the bumper will help to stop rubbing in the front of the fender well since you trim the liner when you install it, but the tires will probably still rub the cab mount when compressed and turned.

    Most people running 6" lifts with 35's still rub. Only way not to is to run 33's which I think looks better and is easier on the gearing anyway.

    17x9 with 4.5" backspacing is a - 12 offset.

    Just FYI. I was looking at Enduros and they are 17x9 with a 0 offset and its a 5" backspacing.

    that front end is definitely different...i never seen it before...

    who makes it? just wondering...it makes the entire front end look more aggressive to a certain extent...
