    I'm trying to make my truck look like a prerunner without spending my whole life's savings on a suspension. Is there a way??

    If you want a wider stance, wheel spacers would do the trick.

    I have wheel spacers on my taco and love them. Obviously they aren't the best solution, as they can cause some issues, but for a temporary use until I can afford a suspension mod they do the trick!

    How much further does your wheels stick out with the spacers? I have fiberglass fenders on mine and they stick out six inches.

    you can get 3" spacers but i personally wouldnt run over a 1.5 thats just me though, not sure how a 3" spacer would hold up to any offroading

    If you're mobbing heavy in the paint, spacers in the front are a big no-no while spacers in the back are ok. I run 1.5'' in the back, and would not go any wider than that (necessary to clear shocks). For the front check on this site and dezert rangers a lot, I bought my long travel kit new but second hand.
