    What is a good lift and tire combo? Where can I get a good front bumper (armor) and what are the best tires for the money? (Knobby)

    yes 33s will rub almost always. 33x10.5s will fit. 33x12.5s will not you need an 8'' wide rim min to run 12.5'' wide tires. Tons of bumper to choose from I like Plate bumpers better, but its more of a taste thing.


    Do some reasearch on lifts here. TONS of info.

    "TYPE B has less backspacing which causes the tire to stick out from the fender a little more than TYPE A, allowing more room between the tire and upper control arm for wider tires and/or tire chains."

    Holy shit, great recommendation on the rims, those are def going on the old wish list haha I'm thinking type B with BFG A/T KO's. With the 16" type B's and only a 3" leveling lift on the front, what's the biggest tire I could/should run? Keep in mind this is for a PreRunner

    Sorry about the thread jack btw

    285/75/16 but they will rub if you dont trim plastic and hammer the pinchweld. Google search the pinchweld mod for more info

    If I ran 265/75/16's onthe type B wheel the tires should stick out on the sides for that cool look without having the fitment issues right?

    Well there ya go lol Wheelers Type B. Also stay with a 15'' rim! Tires are way cheaper :cool: And you have a 96 so you don't have any issues running that size.

    And yes i do have exhaust. Go to my build page man in my signature :D

    Its a magnaflow 14''. There are videos in my build.
