    5100's at 2.5, taco lean spacer, Wheelers 3 leaf aal, sway bar relocate, Nitto terra grapplers 285/70/17, spidertrax, custom fishing rod holder, afe drop in filter, 15% tint on front 35% on back, access original roll up cover, BHLM, LED's in cupholder, Plasti-dip badges
    So I just got my lift in and hope to install soon. I will be doing Billy's with stock coils at 2.5 and a 3 leaf aal. For now I am keeping the stock sport 17" wheels and stock UCA and no wheel spacers.

    I am looking at either 275/70/17 or 285/70/17.

    Really want to do the 285's but I am not sure if they will clear with some stock components. A LITTLE trimming is not an issue.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    The 285s will more than likely rub but there's only a 1/2" difference between the two so there's a good chance they'll both rub. I would advise against the Billies at 2.5" unless you are ok with a pretty firm ride. Have you looked at toyteclifts.com? What's your budget on the lift?

    285's will rub the UCA on stock wheels without spacers

    275/7017 is what I have on my stock Sport wheels , so does TW member Teamfast .

    His rub his stock UCA at full lock , mine do not rub my LR UCA's at all .

    I wanted a decent lift without spending a ton of money and I refused to get spacers. I did alot of research and most people seem to be ok with the billies at 2.5. I am lucky enough the wife is letting me spend this much on a lift since she opposses it all together. Which lift are you referring?

    I could deal with full lock as this is mainly a daily driver so I dont go to full lock that often. I wish I could get UCA's but money is tight. What tires do you have? Any pics?

    I went with the 285/70/17 and had very little rubbing, doesn't rub the UCA at all.

    I have a lift and I am currently running 285/70/17 on my stock rims. I am currently rubbing on the UCA. I am still calling around trying to find someone that makes a UCA that will solve this issue. I am not a fan of the wheel spacers but if I have to get them I will.
