    Two options:

    A: 3" suspension lift + cutting and tubbing the firewall.

    B: 6" drop bracket lift from Fabtech or the like. You have to cut your front suspension crossmember out I believe.

    Option A will be cheaper/more difficult depending on your skills.

    Option B is more of a street lift, i.e. not really meant for serious wheeling, more for looking cool and fitting large tires.

    That link will give you an idea what it will take to run 35's with a minimal lift.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1s...-tires-rub-my-fender-285-75-16-02-tacoma.html

    That link has a lot of good information on how to run 33x12.50 / 285/75/16 tires on a 3" or less lift.

    Beyond that, you can use the search button at the top to get more info. These topics have been covered dozens of times on this board, so start searching and start reading. There are many very knowledgeable members on here that have build threads and How-to threads that cover your questions.

    Good luck!

    I didn't, they didn't even say anything to me about it either. So I bet you will be fine. I run 33 KM2s and they absolutely destroy your gas mileage by the way. :D
