    Secondary air filter removed, elbow mod, BFG T/A KO (31x10.5R15), 15" American Racing Mojaves, BHLM, Dome Light MOD (Blue), Pioneer headunit, Sockmonkey 'TACOMA' Decals, Readylift 5-lug SST, Rear Shocks - Bilstein TRD, Dynomax Super Turbo #17748, DDM Slim Ballast HID Kit H4 Hi/Lo -35W 6000K in headlights, Apexcone Raptor HID Kit H3 - 35W 6000K in Hella 500s, aFe CAI #51-10762, WeatherTech Floorliner, 200W Smart AC Inverter
    You could run these or go with 30x9.5R15s on stock wheels.

    from the online tire size calculator



    No need to re-gear. You could do some other MODs to compensate for lost power -> remove secondary air filter and install an aftermarket drop in air filter.

    I decided to go with Kuhmo Mohave AT's in 235/75-R15 on my base.
    They will be installed tomorrow.
    I'll put up some pics if I get home before dark...
