    Just ordered my Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit. Plus ordered my tires (BF Goodrich 285/75/16 All Terrain T/A KO) from TireRack.com.

    Hopefully it will arrive at home by the time I get back home this week. Then it is off to the installer! Pics to come after install.:D

    I'm running the same kit. Very pleased with the ride! Upgrading the bumpstops is next. Then I can rail those speedbumps! :burnrubber:

    Well, I was just told that some of my lift parts are on backorder. So looks a little delayed on the install. But will be well worth the wait.

    Bummer. Did you go with the AAL or upgrade the kit to a new leaf pack. I went with the 2" AAL and have some rake. I think the 1-1/2" AAL would have been closer to level. I had the non TSB 3 leaf set up to start with on a '08 Access Cab.

    sorry for the late reply, I went with the 2" AAL as well and I too have a very small amount of rake, just need to lift the front more :p.

    Currently I have 265/70-16's on the stock black "baja" style rims, I'm planning on upgrading to either 285/75's or possibly 255/85's. I'm worried 285's will stick out too much since I'd have to run spidertrax wheel spacers to fit 285's on my stock rims.

    285's look good. Usually some trimming is nec from what I've read. I went w/ 235x85x16 but on 16x8 wheels they ended up about the same height as the 265x70x16's I was running. Next time around I'm going with 255x85x16 for sure.

    I'm pretty sure 255/85's are my next tire.

    You'll like the 255/85/16s. Mine are on 1st Gen TRDs (3/4" less BS so they stick out a little farther)

    Shopped online then told local Discount Tires that Tire Rack would sell them to me for $195 so Discount beat it with $190. Just under $900 out the door.

    I shopped online and took my best online price to the Discount Tire (on Los Altos) and they beat the price significantly!! Grabbed my Mojaves from them as well.

    Ty, their a national chain. Check 'em out.

    Well, left at 6am this morning headed to the installer. And, after 10 hours (and taking my daughter to the mall), my lift, UCAs, and new tires were installed!!!!! No rubbing so far (haven't locked it in yet)!

    I will post pics tomorrow (it was raining when I got home). Thanks to all who gave me advice! On a side note, I got all my parts back that were taken off; So, after checking prices, I will have some parts for sale (stock leaf packs, bilstein shocks/struts ((still attached to front coil)), and 5 BFG 265/70/16 tires ((only 18k miles on the tires and still in good shape. Spare is still new and never used!)), and my stock UCAs). They will be priced reasonably!
