    I am looking to put a rough country 2" leveling kit in my 2017 tacoma. Do I need to run differential drop spacers with this kit? Rough country and the shop installing it say no but I am skeptical. I am just running the leveling kit to fit 265x70x16s instead of 245s. Is this going to wear my cv out without the spacers?

    I got a stock 14' 4x4 and I already have 265/70/16, not even close to rubbing.

    That’s because it’s the stock size from factory. You could go up to a 265/75/16.

    It’s 0.5” closer hight wise. 285 is to wide for stock wheels. It’s the width, the 0.4” closer to the UCA that will stop it from working. You’d need wheel spacers or a lower offset. Probably have some rubbing at lock and require some mod to the wheel well liner. Also you’re limited to like one tire in that size. I think Nitto makes that size in their trail grappler which is a loud M/T. Good offroad but not a good daily.

    Skip the Junk Country kit and go with 5100s.
