    Im new to TC and was wondering what would be the best lift to fit 33" tires on my 1st gen double cab? I think it already has a 2" block lift and its terrible

    I have 2 inches under the front of mine with 285s, I think it's fine. I'm about to go to 33s with 3 inches all the way around. 3 will look really good.

    3 inch lift should be fine. not sure what kind or if itll need any trimming. lets just say i can basically run 32's stock on my 04 dbl cab trd and they only rub full turn. i think 3 inch with 33's is fine and most kits say they should clear 33's and sometimes they say with trimming

    881s won't give you 3'' of lift haha

    only 3'' lift coil is Eibachs

    882s with the trim spacer give ya close to 3'' tho.


    and i hope your ready to cut and bang the truck a bit to make them fit regardless of how much lift you have.

    Yep, i have 5100s in the middle setting with my 881s and have a 3" lift but rubbed like crazy once i got the tires on. I had to trim the chrome part on the stock bumper, the plastic on the bottom part of the bumper, pinch weld, and the plastic that surrounds the wheel well. Doesnt matter how much lift especially if your offroading and stuffing them in the wheel wells

    I did a 3" lift (Donahoe coil-overs and Deaver springs) and 33" work great.
