    I may go with my brother Saturday morning. One of his buddies has a sled I can borrow, don’t remember where we are going, but leaving Wakefield NH at 5:30 sat morning.

    Looking for some advice/help before I do anything. I need to replace my tires and know I can't go bigger really without a lift and/or 17" rims.

    I'd like to put this leveling kit in. https://www.roughcountry.com/toyota-leveling-lift-kit-744c.html

    And then these tires. Original are 267/70/16. These are 265/75/16. Wondering if they will work without rubbing after the leveling kit.
    https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tire...R6KO2RWL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

    At the moment I can't afford rims or a lift but plan to down the road.

    Ya, he is a transplant, so I guess it’s understandable that he thinks it’s Wakefield.

    Just talked with him, going up to Errol NH.

    Won’t rub. Go to the suspension section. There’s a million threads to read that answer this question 100 different ways

    Those tires should work fine at stock height. You don't need aftermarket wheels for larger tires unless you're running into backspacing issues between the tire and uca. You don't need the leveling spacers.


    Lifting doesn't let you for bigger tires. It just changes the static height of the truck, but your suspension will still travel through the same range of motion. I would avoid that spacer unless you're also extending your bump stops since it's lengthening the shock which at full stuff will make the shock take all the load instead of the bumpstop.

    You guys ever reach “F it” in one of your friendships? I’ve got a friend, well know a person, who I’m starting to find that I don’t even care if I’m friends with anymore. I’ve found that every time I hear this person say something, or read something they’ve posted, I can’t help but think about how much I don’t really even like them anymore.... but we’re supposed to be friends :rofl::rofl:

    So how do you guys know, when you’ve reached “f it”

    Figured this thread could use a topic for BS

    I know you said you can't afford to get a lift but I'd recommend saving your money on the leveling kit and put it away towards some Bilstein 5100s. They are about the best for the money thing you can do to lift the front of your truck

    I got a couple buddies I'm there with. I'm friendly when I see them, but I don't ever reach out anymore, and tbh, they don't that often either. Sometimes you just go down separate paths. I've found just declining any invitations over and over again with stupid reasons tends to get people to stop asking you or trying to talk to you :anonymous:

    Depends. As Ive gotten older, I have drifted from friends and told some to get fked.
    Depends on how YOU feel, and if there needs to be closure.

    I just don’t spend that much effort into keeping/making friends. If it takes extra effort, not for me.

    Yup. Actually happened to a decent amount of my college buddies. I thought about it a couple months ago and I think my situation was me changing, not them. They all still got out to the bars 4 nights a week til 2am. That was fun and all in college, but I'm all set on that now. Those are the only times they hang out too. So I've lost touch with most of them other than the occasional back and forth on IG.

    That’s drinking buddies, I prefer buddies I drink with while camping or at music shows and what not.

    I’ve quietly drifted away from friends for a lot of reasons, some even for no reason other than we just slowly drift away. If we just don’t share the same interests, its usually mutual, we hang out less and less, and the friendship just sort of ends on its own. If there’s a good reason I don’t want to be around them, I’m usually not shy about telling them. I’ve told friends straight out that something has changed, and give them the reason, and we shoudn’t hang out anymore. That hasn’t happened a lot and usually an extreme case and only used when I want to make it perfectly clear that we are no longer friends and I don’t want to even be associated with them anymore.
