    5100 on all four corners, fronts set to "0", OME 885 coils, Toytec 2 in AAL
    After a long time researching options, I finally got all the parts together and got it done today. I went with 5100's on all four corners, OME 885 coils up front and the Toytec 2 inch AAl in the back. Started just after 8 this morning, and we were done with the lift by 11. We had to pick up some odds and ends, and had everything buttoned up, included necessary trimming of the plastic by 2. It looks and rides awesome. I couldn't be happier.

    And yes, my driveway slopes, both from the back of the truck to the front and right to left. The truck was sitting almost level with the old tires and wheels in the back.

    I mounted the Mickey Thompson MTZ in 33x12.50x17 on there just to see how they looked. They look fantastic, but I don't need to run an MT. The 33x12.50 did rub, but a couple hits with the grinding wheel and we are free and clear. Not sure how it would do in a serious offroad situation, but I rarely find myself in those. Dirt roads to the deer lease and river are really as offroad as I get. I have 285x70x17 coming this week.

    I still have to put the trim ring on the wheels, but I am going to wait until i get my tires done, one less thing for them to mess up.

    Question, I have to get the alignment done still. I went to a shop this afternoon after hitting discount tire. They will do a one time that has a 6 month warranty for $50. But he told me to wait until I got the new tires. Said that even going from bald tires to new tread in the same size will throw off the alignment. I have never seen this mentioned here or anywhere else. In fact, he said if I got it done today, then the warranty would be void when I put the new tires on.

    i had tires with only 6000 miles on them before i got my new ones today. I had got an alignment a month ago, if that, and today i had to get another one. Different tires can definitely make cause for an alignment.

    Looks great! How much rubbing (where) and what did you have to grind on???

    You're probably the 3rd or 4th I've seen in here using that size tire with minimal drama, so I'm getting more and more comfortable with my idea of 305/60/18 on 2.5-3in lift!!! :D

    I had some rubbing on the very bottom inside corner of the fender flare. I trimmed the corner about the size of a half dollar. Then it rubbed on the plastic inner fender. trimmed that slightly just where it was hanging. The front of the tire hit the square hangy down thing (yes that is the technical term, i looked it up) under the front corner of the bumper. Trimmed that a lot. They are both gone now. There is an ever so slight nudge on the body mount. I didnt even know it until I saw the dirt rubbed off when i was under the truck. I hope that since the 33's are pretty much clear, I should be fine with the 285's. Like I said, I tried to flex it a little, but i still have no idea how it would do if I really pushed it offroad.


    Thanks for all the comments. it was a really fun process. I would suggest if you are on the fence about doing this yourself, dont worry. I am not a car guy. But the steps were easy to follow and everything went very smooth.

    But you already own cool ass 33x12.5s.....and you aren't using them even after trimming for them?

    It will be at least Thursday before i get a chance. I decided to follow the guys advice (and above poster) and wait until I get new tires to align. I only drive about 6 miles one way to work, so i won't put too many miles on it before then.

    Yes I know. Its a real tough decision. But I am trying to be somewhat practical. These tires are beasts. If I had 4wd then i would keep them. I just think they are a little overkill on my Prerunner.

    And I'm gonna try and sell them for a little return.

    Do you have any pics of where you had to cut to prevent rubbing?
