    I just got my 2006 4x4. Its an access cab and I want to lift it 3". I was thinking about a spacer kit for the front and an add a leaf in the rear. What do some of you think about that. Is it gonna affect the ride quality? How much lift will I actually get? Also, I want to put some BF Goodrich All Terrains 285/70/17. I have the TRD Sport rims on it. I was wondering how that would look..??:rolleyes: If you guys have any pictures of with similar lifts and tire size, please post. I should have some pics up soon. Thanks.

    Truck looks great! Are you satisfied with your tire size? I want to do 285/70/17 so it will make it a little taller. I'm not too interested in wider. I don't want it to make the rims look tiny.

    Yes sir, those are 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers. The wideness is pretty good too, the sidewall of the tire is even with the outside edge of the fender flare. It gives it a very tough stock look.
