    I attached a pic. I hope it worked. I have the Toytec C/O's with a 2.5 AAL system and bilstein 5100 shocks. It sits on ProComp 285 M/T's on 17x9 rims. They rub here and there but I just gotta work it in. Probably even ditch the mudflaps.

    No I have not cut anything. The tires are actually about to rip off my front mudflaps. I had the rear ones pretty flexed out in the hills and they never rubbed. I think the C/O's are only adjusted to 2.5 or 2.75 inches. I think if I bought UCA's and went the full 3.5 it wouldn't rub. However it would be too tall in the front. So question, could i put blocks in the rear along with the AAL system to level this out? From what I know I think it would work and be ok.

    And the stupid center caps wouldn't fit over the hubs so I couldn't have them installed. They throw the look of the rim off quite a bit. I'll get some other ones or else force these ones on.

    Also I attached more pics.

    Yeah most guys that have 33"s with a 3" lift have to take off their front mud flaps. Rear flaps are going to be okay though. I had the same problem with my center caps as well. The place that installed them couldn't get them to fit either. It really bugged me for the first couple of months but then I got used to it. I kind of like the cap-less look now! But then again I have black rims and it matches the hubs as yours are chrome wheels.;) Oh hey, where in NV are you from?

    Ya I bet that does look good with black rims with out the caps. Mine really really bugs me. You can see how much it throws off the look. I'm originally from Ely but I live in Elko now.

    Does anybody have any suggestions about putting a 1 inch block kit on along with the AAL system to level the truck out while the C/O's are at full capacity?

    ELKO?!?! Sweet, I'm from West Wendover!!! Hey you guys have a good number of Tacoma's out there whenever I go there. I made a thread a couple weeks ago asking if anyone on here was from the Elko area. Of course no replies!:eek: I was even thinking of going out there this weekend to hit up wal-mart and do some shoppin.;)

    Oh cool dude, I was actually just in west wendover this weekend. Me and my buddies drove to salt lake to board up at bryton. I hung out in that peppermill casino for a while and it was pretty damn cool dude. Ya I hardly ever get time to check these threads so I didn't catch that one you posted.

    Ya 2.5 inch AAL in the rear. Those pics were taken off my camera phone and sent to my email then posted here. Its hard to get the real scale of the truck. I opened a new thead titled 'rockcrawling with my 3' toytec lift'. There's a few more pictures in that taken off a digital camera. Maybe that will help justify the actual scale.
