    Im planning out Tires, Rims and lift for my Tacoma. I would like to know all that is required. i like to look of some of the GF a/t and haven't decided on rims yet, but i know i want them to stick out of the fender or at least be flush. Chicago winters are brutal and i would like something good in the snow.

    Should i be worried about re-gearing?

    Im mostly worried because i use my truck for work, and put about 90miles a day on it.

    Any good ideas or suggestion?

    Thanks

    well i was thinking about copying the prerunner, that why i have a good idea of the size for re gearing. Maybe 245 75 15 265 70 16 somewhere around there. im thinking the skinnier the better to help with gas.

    I'm going from 285s to 315s. I currently am running a stock gear set up. I am going to re gear it myself. What do I need for this and where can I get it. What ratio?

    Call these guys. Very helpful! They will set the gears up for you and all you have to do is install (remove old third, put in new third). They will answer all your questions!!!
