    Curious if anyone is running 35's with stock gearing on a V6 Taco? I can't decide between 35's and 33's. I put a spacer lift/blocks on a '12 Taco today and installed 285's. It looks OK, but I'm thinking I would like to run 35's. Planning to do fenders and and an Icon lift. Clearance won't be a problem. I wondering how well that works. I love the way my truck drives and don't want to have it drive like a blind cow or feel like a slug.:eek:

    I'm running a 6inch fabtech. 1st set of tires were 33" at's, just put 35" mt's on there and honestly can't tell the difference in power. still pulls a 12ft double axle trailer with 2 scags great too..

    Going to 4.56 made a world of difference for me running 33s. I wouldn't even consider 35s without gears.

    When i had stock gears with my 35's it was quite noticeable. I would run 4.56's with 35's.

    I've got an auto and 35s. Works alright, cruise is a PITA, it downshifts every 5 seconds almost. But I can still drive and pass just fine. 4:56 in the future though.
