    Can anyone help me to figure out how much I can legally lift my 2015 TRD dcsb ....

    I'm really only looking to raise the truck a little and add some bigger wheels....nothing aggressive as I will probably take the truck down a dirt road now and then.

    (1) The maximum mechanical lift for four wheel drive motor vehicles shall be calculated by multiplying the wheel base times the wheel track, and dividing the product by a safety factor of 2200: i.e., 92" w/b x 58" w/t = 5336/2200 = 2" (maximum mechanical lift). The outside diameter of the largest tire size available from the original manufacturer as standard or optional equipment for the particular motor vehicle may also be increased up to an amount equal to maximum mechanical lift calculated. (2) The maximum combined mechanical and tire lift shall be no greater thanthe sumofthe maximum mechanical lift and increased tire size calculated for the particular vehicle.

    so looks like 4" if you wanna be legal about it. Lift it however much you want and buy some tiny 29" tires on steelies for inspection.
