    Hello and thanks for having me on this forum! I know its been asked a thousand time....but I'm at work and dont have time to search. I have an 09 PreRunner TRD Sport with 265/65/17's, a good friend of mine gave me a set of nearly new 285/75/17's. What is gonna be the easiest way to get these babies stuffed under my truck? I've been looking at the cheap 3" lift/leveling kits on ebay. Thanks in advance and hope I can help someone on here one day.

    You could do a spacer lift, But I would recommend at least running Bilstein 5100s, with and AAL out back. Would be considered a 2.5" lift.

    Just do it right with the billsteins and AAL, don't even bother with the spacers, you'll hate yourself later.

    You should be able to fit them with 5100's @ 2.5 and AAL out back. I did a 2" AAL in the rear of mine because I like a little rake so my truck doesn't look nose high when I am pulling a trailer or have the bed loaded. 1.5" AAL has too much "bro lean" for my tastes, especially with a little weight in the bed.

    You will need some wheel spacers with the stock TRD sport wheels IIRC.

    You will also have to do a little minor plastic trimming in the front fender wells & remove your mud flaps.

    Well at least I have the tires and I have already taken off the mudflaps. Now just to get the shocks and rear springs.

    Browsing the site last night and came across a poll about 3" or 6" lifts, I saw that Johnw at one point in time was running 285's on the exact same truck with only wheel spacers. Just so happens, I have a set of spacers laying around.
