    I know what I want to do with my 2010 4x4 access cab but wanted to run this by the ones who have been there and done that to get your input please.

    First off I am running the stock suspension (no TRD) with factory wheels and tires 245/75/R16.

    1- I already have an appointment for the rear leaf spring TSB next week.
    2-Shocks... Plan to upgrade to Bilstein 5100's front and rear, setting the front at +1.75 is the plan.
    3- Wheels... Looking at a set of 16x8 w/ 4.5in backspace Chrome Helos
    4- Tires.... BFG A/T 265/75/R16

    Could anyone tell me if I will run into any clearance/tire rub issues?? Is there anything I should do different??

    Any advice/input is much appreciated,

    TIA,
    Dave

    Everything looks pretty good. Except those rims will be pushing it for that width of tire, but as long as you don't air down much then you will be fine, thats is if you offroad and or air down when you go.

    Happy moding days.

    I should of specified. I ment for harder surfaces like rocks. I usually do more slow speed stuff like rock crawling. Thats what I was referring to. In sand you will have no problem, because of the lack of resistance compared to the other.

    Sounds good...I shouldn't need to air down. The only off road driving will be on the beach. Prolly don't even need 4wd but will at least lock it in there once in a while to spin the gears. May need the extra meat at the steep/slick nasty boat ramp now and then.
    Isaac, Your setup looks good....just what I'm looking for. I hope to have this all done in the next couple of weeks. Pics coming soon!!
