    I have a 2004 prerunner, i plan on putting 32 inch bfg all terrains. What size lift will i need to clear them without trimming? And should i get 265?

    You should be able to run a 265/75/16 on 2 inches of lift

    You may want to trim a bit of the black plastic wheel well liner and hammer down the pinch weld seam

    I have 2.5" spacers in front and 285/75/16 because thats what rough country says it will clear..they're correct (going straight) turning not so much. Hell of a rub on the inner fender! When i get a chance i'm going to trim it back and do what Jeff said about hammering down the pinch weld..

    I think you would be a lot happier if you looked at something besides a spacer lift.

    Spacers are cheap, and you will pay for it in ride quality. I did the Toytec Ultimat lift. Check out their site, this lift raised my truck about 2.5 inches and sits level. Runnin 265/75/16 BFG no rubbing. Check out my gallery pics for reference.


    I also had a spacer lift at first. Lots of reading and research on TW. /Later replaced with the Bilstein 5100's .

    Whats a body lift going to do for you?

    If you rub on the trim area.. just trim it down.

    Anyone running a body lift to run larger tires is just not thinking clearly.

    Get some bilstien 5100 adjustable front shocks and change your coils to OME 881.

    Do an add a leaf for the rear to even it out, Unless you like the raked Bro look.:facepalm:

    All these I mention are for folks on a very tight budget.

    If you have more money to toss at it.....

    Get some adjustable coilovers, A rear leaf pack and if you want a larger spindle and new Upper control arms.

    Get some 33's or 35's and re gear.
