    Alignment would fix it as it did mine. Same wheels and size tires, then the 5100s.

    Everything I've seen has said 265/70R17 should fit with no rubbing on stock suspension. Especially with the TRD Pro (4Runner I assume since they are 17") wheels which push them out a bit further even. Very strange if you are having issues with that size tire.

    Yep, they shouldn't rub at all. I had an '18 SR and now have a '22 SR with the 17" 4Runner Pro Sema wheels with 265/70r17 Wildpeaks and there is no rubbing anywhere, full lock, off-road, etc. I did remove the air dam and have Plasticolor mudflaps, which are almost flat and don't protrude. The air dam and stock rigid plastic flaps on some trims might rub. That's the perk of this tire size. If you get them in SL load rating, they aren't super heavy, barely impact the ride quality/mpg/gearing, can be ran at stock height and look good but also look good with a small 1-2" lift.

    I need the get new tires for the '22 and am pretty sure I'll stick with this size again for the reasons above. I was tempted to go up to 33s but combined with a needed lift, don't think the hit to the mpg, gearing and handling are worth it to me. I don't do any hard wheeling since I have a KTM and mountain bikes for getting to those places.

    NO!!
    The lift kit has Nothing to do with the rubbing! It's your alignment!

    I have 17x8.5 Icon wheels with 285/70R17 General Grabber tires and ZERO rubbing offroading full stuff! 2" 887 OME coils on Bilstein 5100's.
    The lift doesn't make a difference!
    It's how your alignment is set up!

    Had mine done yesterday. Looks great and the truck drives awesome. As someone already said, it's the perfect amount of lift. The truck doesn't look like it has a lift kit, IMO instead it looks like it should. This is the height it should have been from the factory. I had them throw the TRD skid plate on too, for all the rugged mall crawling and picking up kids from preschool that I do. $1150 for the lift, $570 for labor.

    The only "issue" was the PCS light coming on briefly, but after driving it a bit today it's turned off. Searching this forum, it sounds like it just needed to recalibrate for the new grille.

    Tires are 275/75/16 Open Country on 16" TRD wheels.

    Looks like with the radar lower, your bull bar is right in front of it. I'd guess that'll be a problem.

    $1720 total seems a lot more reasonable than the $3,000 I've heard from our closest dealer!

    Anyone in the northern California foothills or central valley get this installed at a dealer for around that $570 labor?

    I have a new TRD Sport being delivered in about a month and my dealership in Maine said that the TRD Lift Kit would be about $2,000 installed and built into the final price of the vehicle.

    I keep going back and forth on if I should do it. The reason why I want it is for A) to be able to fit 265/70r17 WildPeak tires on stock wheels without rubbing on mud flaps or anywhere else. I know it shouldn't but it sounds like it happens more often than not. B) Improved suspension. C) I would get the pro grill anyway. D) I don't know how to install anything myself E) Warranty.

    I'm concerned about how this could affect towing... Without the rake, is it going to squat when towing a 3,000lb boat/trailer?

    The ride is great, way better than stock. It will probably squat some with payload/towing. I ultimately swapped out the block in the rear that came with the kit for an OME HD leaf pack. If you're not carrying a load on a regular basis, you may not need anything else. There are obviously a ton of options out there, but it's a good kit IMO for a daily driven truck and I'm happy with it.

    I called my dealer asking about the kit and what tires will fit it. Their tire specialist told me 285/70r17. I haven't really seen anyone in this thread with that size though. I feel like that's just a little too big without doing either a CMC or some major fender work? I may just go with 275/70r17 to be safe. Tires will be Falken ATs and wheels will be 17in TRD Pro (Bronze 4runner wheels).

    I did not consider any additional options at the time of my DCSB Sport purchase. I’m bummed about that after the fact but such is life.

    My suggestion is to get what you want before taking ownership. Here’s a little blip I read about the Kit.

    The Tacoma TRD Lift Kit comes backed by the same warranty as all TRD accessories, which includes a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty on parts if it is installed prior to or at the time of the sale, or a 1-year, 12,000-mile warranty on parts if installed afterward.

    There is an alternative to the dealer's huge mark up that some may want to know about and also the Bilstein warranty.

    Just install the much better Bilstein 6112/5160 dampeners and Bilstein coils yourself for less money and get lifetime limited warranty as long as you own them.

    If I wasn’t able to just buy the TRD shocks like I did in early 2021, aftermarket Bilstein is definitely the route I would have gone.

    I would take the Bilstein over the TRD branded as there are more settings and the lifetime warranty. People are so worried about the factory warranty being void which we all know cannot happen, were only talking front struts and shocks here.
