    They'll fit in the front with no lift too but then try to drive.

    Lol.. I'm doing kings upfront.. I like the way the rear rides so I'm trying not to change it, but I'm wondering what it will be like with that tire size

    So what do you guys recommend to put on if I want to run that size tire ?

    What's going to level the truck, if that's what you want? How much lift are the kings providing up front?

    Maybe he's going for that "brocoma" look...

    You'll want about 2" in the rear. Most Tacoma's have about a 1" rake.

    I never understood the appeal of that stance but there are a few guys that like it.

    But to make it level you are gonna have to raise the back. I got almost 3in. But it settled some at about 2 1/2in...

    Prerunners are like that therefore my stock truck will be a prerunner if I simply lift the front.

    What do you recommend as far as raising it? Add a leaf?

    The only time mine sits that way is when she's working. Squat :D

    That's what I did. Love them. No squat when I put 500 lbs. on her. It does have a stiff ride over the three leaf that came on my '13.

    Mine stock does ok with 500 extra lbs. it's when I start getting close to 1200 lbs she squats. I think that's going to be one of the next mods I do. Ditch the factory leaf pack and put Dakars on her. I've been looking for a good deal. Seems like $400+ is the cheapest I've seen them so far. Part #CS047R

    Mine flattened out when I put a 500lb. vending machine on it. Did yours come with more spring? The Dakars definitely made the truck handle the weight better.

    Can't see much squat but the springs were flat and arching the other way.
