    So I ordered my lift today. Bilstein 5100’s front and rear from Down South Motor Sports, $283.00 shipped. Tuff Country 2” add a leaf from Suspension connection $66.53 shipped. My Taco is 2010 access cab 4x4 SR5 2.7L

    I have Bridgestone revo’s 285’s. I’m sure I’m going to have to trim the wells a bit. I’m really not into “bling”. So I wanted to keep the stock steel wheels and repaint them with rustoleum hammer finish paint black.

    The question is will this work or do I need to buy wheels with back spacing? If I do get wheels with back spacing are they going to stick out? Do I have to trim the mudflaps?

    In advance thanks.

    what height are they? 70s? 75s?

    For the 2.7 prolly as big as I'd go, but I'm not very tolerant.

    taco, inchannel vent visors, sat radio, undercover bed cover, and little stuff. 81 has a few.
    Wheel spacers on stock rims 1.25 works great or 1.5 also
    If new wheels 4.5 back spacing
    Trimming will be needed front flaps or removal
