    I apologize if this is a beaten horse...I've searched and not really found the answer so if its out there and someone wants to post a link I don't mind reading...

    Basically I want to put 32's or 33's on my 2008 double cab...this is a daily driver and don't really have plans to wheel it hard as I have a trail truck for that.

    What I have in mind is a performance accessories 3" BL since its about the most reasonably priced option and least impact on c.g. height increase.

    So my questions:

    1) will the 3" BL allow me to clear 32s or 33s without any body trimming? If i need to trim how severe for mild offroading?
    2) is it possible to change tire size in the ecu to get correct speed and mileage output or gear changes for the speed sensor?
    3) can I use 15" wheels or is the brake package going to prevent anything under 16" wheels? As I have wheels/tires off my trail rig that I'd run on my taco if 33s will fit

    I have read the PA instructions and none of that seems too challenging...

    Thanks in advance

    Body lift wont do it, you wont clear the upper control arms. You need to get a suspension lift as in coils, or preloadable shocks, such as the Bilstein 5100's.

    no 15" on these 6 lug trucks,will rub the caliper.32s fit on stock truck.in order to go to a 33" you need a 3" suspention lift with some trimming

    See the issue with the Uca...anyone run wheel spacers to clear...I'm not a huge fan of them but survived moab Utah with them so i think they'd be okay for my DD

    Pataco, I saw you said 32's will fit on a non lifted 4x4. I have a 2011 reg cab 4cy 4x4 base, do you think a 32 will fit on there with no lift ? my 32 x10.25 wheels and tires are in at the tire store and OME lift on the way but would like to pick up wheels and tires now before installing lift
