    Check out my Build to See!
    I have a 2011 TRD Sport and I would like to lift it and put some bigger tires on the stock rims. What type of lift are people using and what size can fit on my rims without rubbing?

    I was looking at lifts such as the rough country that just has the 2 in block in the back w/ shocks and 3 in spacer in the front. I dont really want anything to fancy. Any suggestions help.

    Post your pics if you have any! Thanks!

    This is how it sits now stock

    Very little at full turn and flexed while backing out the driveway.. They are toyo MT so they may run a little taller than what you had. Plus the 885s tend to sag a little more with it being a DC, so its not whole lot higher than stock. Doesnt bother me tho, gonna go with 285 next, and chop some plastic. :D

    I am running a 2.5" CO in the front and nothing in the back. Just put 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grappler AT's on some Mamba M2's. My left front rubs a small part of the plastic in the fender well when backing and wheels cut all the way to the right. But that's only because I didn't put it back in snug when I replace my headlights. Easy fix. I'm interested in lifting the back a little bit too. Maybe 1"-1.5". Any advice?

    I got 2 1/2" up front with 885's on my DC , hasn't sagged in 8 months .

    You get new UCA's ? Maybe your caster is the issue .
