    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!

    Almost forgot! Thanks for all the comments! I was worried about how it would look, but I swear I can't stop looking at it still at 10:20pm I like it so much, LOL.

    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.
