    Hello,

    I have a 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro, I’m looking to lift it to fit 285/75/16. I’m having trouble finding a 1-1.5” lift, does anyone have any suggestions?

    you can fit 285 75 16 on a stock pro, you might have to trim and maybe a cmc, Id much rather do that then adding spacers.

    Oh no, don't put a spacer lift on it. That's all everyone says when they want to lift a truck a few inches. But since it's a Pro it's okay.

    Do lots more research, there's alot more to lifting these trucks than just installing a set of coilovers or spacers. Good luck with your truck

    whatever the spacer thickness, double it for the amount of lift it should provide.

    And to fit 33s (and especially dirtyfives) it's more about chopping, fuckton caster, trimming, and bashing (35s)

    Everyone is always against spacers as it will cause all kinds of issues, compresses the springs and cause your ride to suffer. You cannot trust everything you hear. Also some say you can fit the 285s with no lift. Good luck, best bet is to try a reputable 4wd center in your area to make it work.

    Or, you know, opens up the possibility of snapping the entire damper in half.

    i think you want alittle more in the front so its level,, my pro used to have a 3/4 in rake... now its more like an inch. rake,, with my 1 1/2 front spacer, i wont have to have the coils dissasembled, my spacer goes on top, i should have 1/2 in. or less of rake with the 1 inch rear block.. and the 1 1/2 in strut spacer. hoping to not have any issues with this small lift, its just for looks.
