    3" Readylift / Toytec lift with MB 72 wheels (18x9) - Nitto Terra Grapplers (305/60/18)

    I've had the lift on for 2 weeks, and the tires for a week. I've had little issues with the lift and tires so far. I didn't use any shims or carrier bearing drop and the only vibration I have is a barely noticeable vibration around 10mph when slowing down. Gas mileage hasn't seemed to suffer too much so far, even on the highway. After owning a V8 Cadillac, anything seems better on gas though. Rear AALs can be a little stiff over bumps, kinda F-350ish, so I might eventually swap the rear suspension for the OME Darkers.

    Only question I have at the moment is what's the best way to correct the speedometer and odometer? It's 6.1% slow. And for that is it worth spending the cash on fixing that? For most of my normal driving even the on the highway my speedo would be less than 5mph off, and I'd lose only 6 miles for every 100 on my odometer.

    Here are some quick pics:

    i love the way 305s look on the tacoma. it just sucks that you have to sacrifice some offroad performance in order to run them....unless you do a large amount of cutting.
