    Toyota's are awesome
    That should do it!
    What size tires you thinking of running? The 285's?
    Just remember, if you go that large, the tire needs to be installed on an aftermarket wheel with 4 to 4.5 inches of back spacing built into the wheel.

    Hope that helps,

    I've seen other threads about 285 with wheelspacers and it seems to be fine and you get good enough clearance

    Can Total chaos UCA's be used in lieu of wheel spacers when running a 285/70/17 tire on stock TRD wheels, or are they still required ?
    I have searched the forums for an answer to this and have got conflicting answers.

    I not to sure cuz I've heard that the control arms help with alignment if you get a three inch lift and there stronger but if your on a budget wheel spacers $ 120 and if you have money control arms run you about $600 to $1000 depend wat company you go with too I recomend total chaos or camburg there a little bit cheaper than chaos

    The cost of the spacers does not really concern me, I'd just rather not run them.
    And I know aftermarket UCA's correct alignment issues but after looking though various threads, some hint that they may possibly also provide more clearance between the inner sidewall of the tire and the UCA versus the stock UCA's

    yeah gonna run 285/70/18, is it good enough for clearance? If not would it require trimming? I am also not going to be using the stock rims.
