    Wow, that is sweet. I have been looking for a pic of a noticeable lift difference between Toytech and my Readylift. Thank you for the pics. Can you let us know which system you went with. I was thinking of going OME 886's up front, with 2" AAL's in rear.

    Thanks...

    I went with the Pro Basic Toytec kit. 3'' spacer and 1.5inch block. I also have the TSB springs in the back. The truck is my everyday driver and not really a "trail" rig per se. I pull my boat in the summer and do some mild offroading in the fall/winter hunting, so I didnt really want to drop alot of $$ for the coils. So far it rides fairly close to stock, not really any stiffer than I expected or wanted. Helo Maxx wheels on Baja Claw Radials. I was worried they were going to scrub terribley, but so far they only scrub the front mud flaps in hard turns, so I just removed those, heh. I goto FSU in Tallahassee, but hail from Taylor county. Big Bend all the way!

    those 16X10" wheels look sweet what is the backspacing on them and how far do they stick out from the outside of the fenders? I live in Pa and am doing the same lift and getting the same size wheel and tires but since I live here I am not allowed to have the tires stick out any cuz its a hefty fine (I was actually looking into the MT Baja Claws too but decided to get the ATZs instead), thank you I appreciate it.

    Renval, I'm not sure on the backspacing. I am going back to the shop that put on the tires/wheels for me on Thursday and I'll find out for certain. As for what you want to do with your truck, I say go for it! People told me mine wasn't going to work, it was going to scrub terribly, etc. But I went with what I wanted and proved most wrong. I'll update when I have the exact wheel specs.

    I can't notice much of a power loss really, it will still get up and ride if I want it to fairly smoothly and quickly, hehe. As far as MPG I have definately taken a hit with the wider wheels, but how much of one is yet to be determined. I'll let you guys know.
