    Suspension lift and 30/9.5/15 tires.

    Pick a group of tires that will do what you want them to do and choose the lightest of the group. Keeping the weight down as low as possible will add the minimum of spinning mass and rob less power.

    The Fatbobs lift is a suspension lift. I didn't want to sway you to any particular brand between the Fatbobs or ReadyLift one.

    No, it shouldn't rub. If it does do the black box mod. That's where it would rub.

    Im running 225 70 15's now. So if I upgrade to the 30 9.5 15's I'll get two more inches in height? Then the lift from the fatbobs should give me a nice look?

    Id like to get the total height difference with the fatbobs lift and the 30 9.5's,anyone know what that would be so I could go measure it out and see how it will look?

    There are several brands in that size on Tire Rack.
    http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSearchResults.jsp?width=30X&ratio=9.5&diameter=15

    According to the Tire Calculator.
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tirecalc.php?tires=225-70r15-30-9.5r15
    You're going to get an extra 1.3" lift with the sidewall. Add that to the 2.75" Front and 1.5" Rear from the lift.

    Both kits say they'll go up to a 31" tire. I also played with the calculator a little more. A Prerunner can go up to 265/75/16 so if you keep your stock 15" wheels you can go a little bigger than the 30/9.5/15 with 265/75/15's. It's just the larger and heavier you go, the more force it's going to take to get them spinning meaning if you're not careful with size and weight of tire, you could turn a fairly quick truck into a slug.

    I'm not sure which leaf to go with yet. I'm currently looking into that myself.

    There's pictures on the ReadyLift site of trucks that had the lift and tire upgrade done. Scroll down.

    Go with the fb lift and 265s. It's a good look for a 5 lug. I went with the short aal and it retains the stock ride IMO. And if u use the bed of ur truck it carries loads better.

    Will the 265s kill my mileage on my 4 banger? or should I stick with the 30 9.5s?i want a nice look but dont want heavy drag or substanstial loss in mpgs. How much more height will I get with the 265s over the 30 9.5s?

    Most say a couple MPG but those are PreRunners. With your gearing I dunno.
