    Well since everyone is making build threads I thought I'd join the club. I have a 2009 TRD Off Road 4x4 Access Cab, I bought the truck new in August 2008 with 5 miles on the ODO. I bought the truck as sort of a present to myself for getting out of the Marine Corps after 5 years of service. I traded in my 2002 4Runner and used the money I had from my last deployment to buy the truck outright.

    Here's how she sits today - 01.14.10:

    After owning her for one year I decided it was time for a lift, OME complete 3" kit from Toytec. I also totally de-badged the truck around this time - July 09:

    truck looks great.
    do you have any issues running the stock wheels w/ lift and bigger tires? i'm thinking of a similar setup on my double cab and thought the stock backspace might be a problem. i hope not, though because i like the painted stocks better than most of the matte black rims i've seen. thanks

    welcome to TW! no, there are no issues running the stock wheels with 265/75/16 tires. i think 285s would require either wheels spacers or an aftermarket UCA though. the only thing is that my alignment is slightly off until i get new UCAs but its not too bad, just a slight wander on the highway.

    Just got my Pro Comp 7089 wheels installed today. I also changed my engine oil, rear differential oil, and cleaned my air filter. The wheels are awesome, they give my truck a wider stance than my stock TRD OR wheels did and they look a lot better. Still not sure if im gonna be selling my old wheels or holding on to them. Next on the list...all pro bumper or sliders...

    Wider stance...looks much better.
