    6" FabTech lift on 7 Tacoma double cab TRD offroad. I will have Spidertrax spacers (1.5") on hand just in case you were all right on this.
    All i hear is 16" rims will never work however CraigTRD did it but he was running 35's. Hell i dont even know if that makes a difference. also the guy doing my lift says there is no reason it will not work , and i shouldnt have to use spacers...I think with the spacers i should be safe just in case i am putting my foot in my mouth with this setup and not listening to what could turn out to be sound advice from the community. I want to know from all those who say only 17" or higher will work, whether or not you think the spacers will save me. Let me know what you think. i obviously need the help.

    I thought about the "sticking out" due to the spacers but then i thought, the hell with it, it's only little over an inch. besides, maybe i wont even have to use them. we'll see.
    Hey vtragweed, what you mean by nah? any thoughts on the matter or is it personal preference? Just lookin for helpful info.
    Spacers=$200 for 4

    It's been Rhino Lined with thier "Tuff Grip" spray. I've had it for a year now and it still doesnt get old...i love it.

    Youre right baja, mine will problay be sticking out over 2" or so but maybe i wont have to use the spacers.

    For all the people telling me 16" wont work i'm not getting the feed back i was looking for. If i dont have to use the spacers i'll post but odds are i'll have to...we'll see.

    by the way i'm getting my tires through tirerack.com. those guys can really under cut a price. Ican't find anyone who can beat em but they dont always have the size you are looking for. check it out you maybe impressed. They ship out of Reno (at least on this side of the states) and it is not bad price for shipping.

    check 4 wheel parts, go in the store if you can, i bought my wheels and tires for 1400 otd, 17" procomp's with brg at 265/70/17. they cut alot out due to the economy. I like tire rack but you still have to pay someone to put them on and you allmost come out even.

    i hear ya on the assembly but i think i got guy that can hook me up. they are a gloss type rim so i will either paint them or i think it will be less hassle to just Rhino those things too. it will be less work that is for sure.
