    Hey I was wondering if anyone has ever used or heard of using a 2" Tuff Country lift? I don't want to get too much lift, just enough for a slightly bigger tire. So if anyone has ever encountered this, I would appreciate some insight. Thanks. (here is the link incase you want to check it out)

    Yeah, I have been looking around and I think I might go with a Revtek. Thanks for you opinion though. I'm still kind of new at this and trying to figure it all out.

    Awesome, thanks a lot man. Those were both helpful sites. What kind of tire would you recommend with that? I don't quite want 33's. Hopefully just under that would look nice. Right now I got the stock 245-75-16. Will probably keep the rim and just get a bigger set of tires for now. Thanks again for the info.

    im unsure on prerunners but i have 265/75 stock. I have since installed 5100's up front just to get my nose up a little bit. Im kinda new to toyotas as well but i dont think you would have a problem running 265's

    265-75-16 should fit without any trimming and you can keep your mudflaps on.

    285 is a good wheel, in all honesty in 3 months your gonna want bigger tires and a bigger lift. so just spend the money now and get a procomp or a fabtech 6

    He's talking to spend a few hundred on a small lift and you're talking a few thousand on 6".

    Yep, just a smaller lift. Nothing crazy. I don't need anything to smash a small house with or anything, just slightly larger than stock. But thanks again for all the idea's and information.
