    Hey all, broke down after two re-builds of my '85 BJ42 Cruiser and snagged an '04 Taco ( only 55k ! ). Now need to make her pretty. Confused about lifts / level kits. Want to get her in the air but not a core wheeler, more about fitting the 33x10.5 's BFG's under her with some room to spare. Trux. RevTech, ...so many more to choose from. Any guidance for a taconewbee? Trying to keep her on buget ( didn't sell the 42 ) wifes gonna kill me !

    I have the ToyTech 3" coil spacers w/ rear AALs. I fit 285/75-16s (about 33x10.50s) with no rubbing issues. I have a set of 33x12.50-15s on an extra set of rims and these are just a hair taller than those but narrower. They won't fit b/c of the width (not the height). Is your truck a TRD? I think they come with a bigger suspension package than non-TRDs.
