    Hello all.

    First post here. Just finalized a deal yesterday on a new Mag Grey SB DC 4x4 Sport with Nav/Entune. I wanted to introduce myself and say hello to the board. I plan on being active on this forum as I do plan on modifying the suspension to accommodate a bigger wheel/tire combo. I won't ask any dumb questions that can easily be searched, but if anybody wants to offer any advise on any must have mods it would be welcomed

    initially I will be tinting the front windows and doing some type of small lift. Looking to have something close to a 33x10.5x17. Won't be off roading... Just for looks. Any suggestions on that would appreciated as well

    Thanks

    Mike

    33x10.5 You would want 255/80/17 tires, also depending on how tall you are I would PM ImMrYo and get a mirror relocation bracket ASAP, also welcome to the forums!

    A simple cheap lift to get you what you wanted would be billy 5100s on all 4 and an aal

    Simple I'm good with... Cheap is not a necessity. I don't want to spend more than I need to especially since I won't be doing any hard core off road driving, but I don't want to have a bad or squirrelly ride. I don't want to cause any geometry issues or sacrifice much ride quality

    I know what the Billy's are.... Don't know what an aal is... Help

    Is there a consensus that this would allow a 33 to fit with no issues

    Thanks

    Billies are great, an aal is an add a leaf. It just goes onto your existing lead pack giving you 1-2 more inches of rear lift. Billies and an aal isn't cheap in the notion that it doesn't work.

    As far as 33s you may need to do some trimming but nothing too major I wouldn't think since the tires are skinny

    AAL is an Add A Leaf. You should get a Wheeler's 3-piece AAL. It is a progressive 1.5" AAL and gives a softer ride than the normal single leaf AALs. Bilstien 5100s all around is the way to go since you're not planning on doing any serious offroading. You can get a whole set here:
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=117&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    They are adjustable to 2.75". My buddy ran them with 275/75/16s, but I have heard of people running 255/85/16s or 255/80/17s. There might be a lttle rubbing issue depending of your truck.

    Whatever you do, don't go with a spacer lift! Bad for you truck and ride quality will suffer.

    How do I go about redeeming that...

    I plan on ordering these tonight and deciding on wheels and tires within the next few days.

    Can I run something wider than 10+ inches with the Billy's maxed out and the 2" aal? I'm assuming that I might have UCA issues or have to start cutting with more width... Im not cutting btw.... Is there and offset that would allow an 11-12" width tire

    Definitely going with a matte black wheel... Just not sure which one yet

    The wider the tire the more rubbing you will have. And just search toytec lifts coupon

    Biggest tires you can fit without cutting are 265/70/17 or 255/75/17

    I might be new to TW.... But I ain't new to modding. Been around the block a time or ten on other toys. To do what I want to do to this truck is lunch money compared to what I have dropped on other vehicles.

    My truck will rarely go off road so big money on suspension components won't be necessary. I will be doing wheels and tires (18" artillery w/ 285 60 18 Terra Grapplers, 5100's, AAL, tint, clear bra on the sides, interior lighting upgrades,

    that's about $2500 and in my opinion that will make my truck perfect for my needs. If you have greater needs than that then :dancingbacon:
