    3" rough country lift, 1.25" spidertrax wheel spacers, stock wheels, 285/75/16 Cooper ST Maxx tires. No rubbing, rides great!

    Absolutely no vibrations...the rough country lift did come with a diff drop. The larger tires have dropped MPG about 2 MPG. But if I was looking for great MPG I would have bought a Corolla!

    This is exactly what I want to do with my truck, but I have deceleration vibration. I know a lift will make it worse.

    Agreed no need to thrash your new $35-45k truck when you can buy a $3-5k quad/Polaris/bike and shred the trails on that. Love the look. 3" lift revtek 40013 on my 2017 TRD OR DCLB. I'm looking to put some rubber on her. Want 285/75/16 and keep the stock TRD off-road wheels. I personally like them. Good to know about the 1.25" spidertrax wheel spacers. Toss up between the BFG KO2's, cooper discoverer AT3 or Toyo open country A/T II. Most of my driving is in snow/ice and wet or dirt roads. Leaning towards the BFG KO2's as I use to run the BFG A/T 33x11.5/15 on my 85 4Runner SR5 EFI and loved them.
