    Anyone have pics of their trucks with 2-2.5" of lift with the stock 265/70-16 tires? I've got a 1.5" lift up front wth OME 880's and even w/ a 5 leaf pack in the back (which was supposed to give me 1.5" of lift), it's still only sitting about level. I want my rake back, so I was going to add a 1" shackle in the rear, but I'm worried it'll look stupid if it's lifted too much w/ stock sized tires. Right now I don't think it looks silly, you can barely even tell it's lifted. So I'm thinking a small amount more in the back would still look fine....

    Any opinions? btw, I'm staying w/ stock tires cause this 2.7l sucks with the 265/75-16's on the highway, i.e. most of my driving.

    I'd like to see some pics too! I'm thinking about the 2" rough country suspension lift for my 04 taco.

    Not sure yet, but I'm thinking I might go to 265 75 R 16 when I get new tires this summer. I now have over 75,000 miles on these BFG's with no problems what so ever. Very happy with these.:D
