    So I finally got rid of those awful stock tires and rims on my 2009 2.7 Access Cab and I got 235's on 17 rims. It looks pretty nice in my opinion. Much better than the stock tires. It didn't really add the height I was hoping for. My question is what should I get next? I'm thinking of getting a lift on it for the front and back of it i guess, but I heard you can't lift 5 lugs or something? Is that true? I don't really know anything about lifting so please excuse me.

    Also how much do lifts generally cost?

    I wish i could explain what a long travel kit was
    but all i know is those with long travel kits love wheeling at sand dunes.
    someone else should chime in and explain what a long travel kit is.

    25? That'd be pretty short. I've got a chance to get hold of some 17 inch rims for free. If they look good I was going to run a 235/60. Just curious as to how this size would compare visually.
