    I know ya'll are dying to read this one of a kind build so here it is...
    I bought it new in 2012 the TRD 4x4 package with rear locker. 2nd tacoma I've owned, soneedless to say I love it.

    After a couple thousand miles I installed the Pro-comp 6" lift with 35" Toyo Open Countrys on the 18" XD's. So far my only complaints is my front tires are rubbing when I got up drive ways or small curbs. The rubbing is actually occuring at the frame, so I guess cutting out a chunk is my only option, or putting in 1" spacers behind the wheels....Kind of in the dark on that. I personally love the look of the 35's but we all know the downsides.

    I would like to know what 6" lift guys are using for shocks. I've heard you can't go wrong with ICON's. Any advice?

    As she sits now,

    Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!

    Looks good, I think you are rubbing at the cab mount. There are several threads on the cab mount chop (CMC) you should check out.

    I bought some wheel spacers on ebay that have the bolts attached. 1.5" Works great.
    I dont have a 6" lift but I had a similar problem

    I think wheel spacers would make you rub more, just in different places.
