    I have a 2008 Tacoma Pre-runner Sr5 V6. What is the max size tire I could run with a 3” rough country lift I’m getting here in a month?? IMG_2242.jpg

    Well I have the o6 and went with a 285/70/17 and I had to cut and weld a plate at the rear add wheel adapters and cut a little plastic so if you don't want to modify gotta be smaller than a 285 Wich is a 32" tire correct me if I'm wrong..no problems with the back tho.

    Go with 5100s at least. Junk Country is a crap lift.

    285/70/17 is 32.7x11.2” it’s almost a 33x11.5. Either way you’re right it’s going to rub without modification.

    Welcome to the forum. Nice looking Tacoma
    With a 3” lift and stock wheels 265’s if you have an aftermarket wheel you can fit up to 285’s the height depends on the rim size. 75/16, 70,17, 65/18 so on.
    0 or -6 offset works well for 285’s

    What’s your thoughts? You like it? Would you do it again or do something different? Just curious.

    It's good ride is a little stiff but it will do untill you get your hands on a set of icon shocks or king shocks to eat up the speed bumps at the mall lol or dirt roads etc it's a good option for the ones with bills and kids

    I did the revtek pro 40013 it’s an in-coil spacer up front and and AAL in back. I had the bilstein 4600’s on the 2017 off road. It made the ride worse but gave me the lift to add the tires I wanted. It did ok off-road but did limited my up travel. If I was going to do it again I’d at least get the 5100’s and an AAL in back. It would have been about $200 more and would have been a much better ride for DD. Live and learn.

    Just use your head for now, the last thing you wanna do is bottom out the front end in anyway. Your sacrificial part used to be your bumpstops, but now it's your shocks.

    Wow lol so would a coil spacer be better than the spacer that rough country provides? Or is a better shock the solution? Sorry I'm sorta new to off road suspension

    From there I went to the Toytec adjustable coilovers. Bilstein 5100's seem to be a popular lower cost option that would prevent this. Old Man Emu has a good looking kit for ~$1,200 ish I think? I liked Toytec products enough to put them on 3 Tacomas if that tells you anything...

    I also run my trucks harder on a weekly basis than most people ever do in a lifetime... just because you put a cheap spacer lift on your truck doesn't mean that this will happen at the next speed bump... but I wasn't doing anything out of hand when this happened. Thankfully, my new coilovers were laying in the garage and I was actually seeing what it would take to make this happen just a couple miles from home. It happened a good bit earlier than I expected... haha

    The main reason we recommend against spacer lifts, or at least me, is because the ride is just terrible compared to what you could get for a couple extra hunnits and you can actually increase the amount of travel in your suspension with better kits. Whatever you decide to do, be sure that your bump stops are correct.

    Just noticed you’re in a 2nd gen. Don’t use spacers if you want a better ride for DD and more ability off-road. 5100’s is better for not much more money. The OME kits are good too.
    If you had a 3rd gen off-road and wanted to lift it 3” for tires and looks the revtek Pro 40013 is the best of the worse. Personally I wouldn’t put it in again for DD reasons. It did ok off road I didn’t have any issues with it there. I’d look at the 5100’s or OME. If you get spacers paired with your current suspension it will be awful for DD and off-road. You’ll wish you would have saved the $400 and put it towards the 5100’s or OME kit.

    That is some live and learn advice lol. I'm running the 17's that come in the sport and 4runner the offset is why I'm using the spacers not for looks it runs the upper control arm bc it's a 11.2 inch tire and it was cheaper than getting new rims
