    Amazon.com: 3"F + 2"R Leveling Lift Kit for Tacoma, 3" Front Strut Spacers and 2" Rear Black Leveling Lift Block Kit Extended Square U-Bolts, 3"+2" Height for 2005-2019 Tacoma 2WD/4WD : Automotive

    Looking at this one for my 2015 Tacoma DCSB. Seen posts about CV boots ripping and all kinds f things that "need" to be changed when doing a leveling kit like this. Could anyone chime in with thoughts? My plan is for TRD Pro rims with something like 265/70/17's...Thanks!!

    just say NO to spacer's in the front. Instead, save a little more coin and get 5100's or a complete 2.0 Fox kit. If you stay under 3" on the front you shouldn't have much issue with anything else.

    A block/spacer is fine in the rear for a cheap lift.

    You don't need a lift for those tires. But if you do want to use a spacer, keep it small. Otherwise, much better off using a quality front coilover. And even then, keeping it under 3" of lift will help your CVs

    No way I would feel safe using those U bolt replacements at that package price, and I don't think you'd be happy long term with any of that. Some things you can not scrimp on. Save your money.

    I HIGHLY doubt that. The width is more the problem at that point than the height/diameter of the tire. You can go Skinny and taller, but not wider. My 265/75r16 Duratracs Just barely rub on my mudflaps (aftermarket ones). Any wider and they'd rub pretty bad.
