    Can anyone tell me if this set up will work on a 09 trd sport? Im pretty sure the tires are 33's. I read some where that some set ups will work on the trd off road but not on the trd sport without any modification. Any help would be appreciated.

    In order to fit 33's you will need at least a 3" lift and probably some minor fender trimming.

    I'd go with a 3" lift if I were you. That is what most of the guys have on here. You have to change a bunch of stuff out if you go with a 6" lift, well that and the price difference. But everyone has their own preference so do as you please bro!!:D

    I have 285/70/17's on my truck and they're the same at 33's on outside diameter. I have a 3" level kit from Tough Country. They rub on hard bumps on the cab mounts, otherwise they clear with a little trimming on the inner fender. I would recommend the 3" lift and just do a little cab mount trim ifyoure really worried about, otherwise leave it because I don't rub on normal driving.

    Looked at the rcd suspension kits and they are only for the tundras according the the website. Im now leaning towards the pro comp 3 inch, i think that will work.
