I suck at trying to type technical shit like this out; so forgive me if it sort of makes sense.

If you put a 1Ē BL on, and ran 33-35s, you basically moved the body back to Ďfactory specsí for the tire size.

If you slap a 2Ē BL on for 37s; same thing.

Now; the increased tire diameter needs some where to go on the up travel; which is going to be the fender/apron.

Yeah; you can do a Ďcustomí apron/apron chop; but with that comes custom brackets for all the stuff sitting on the apron.

Yeah. It can be done; but, again, IMHO, itís not worth it.

Idk where you live; but if youíre in ENC or close, feel free to shoot me a PM and come by. Iíll show ya how bad it rubs; and even pull the front coil over out to show ya where yaíd need to trim/remove.

It seems like 37ís just arenít worth the time or money because of the ride and strain on the vehicle, especially a daily. Has anyone tried 36ís (315/70r18, 315/75r17)? At that point, it would just be to piss on guys with 35ís lol

I forgot to think about the added diameter left to right instead of just up and down. I appreciate the offer, I live about 4 hours away so not too bad. Probably wonít go 37ís because everyone scared me out of it. Definitely 35ís maybe a bit larger.

In my limited understanding of Toyota parts (I come from a background of Ford and Chevy my whole life) I thought Moog parts were great, so I bought their lbjís from autozone. They cost me only 40 bucks less than oem for the pair and apparently Moog sucks for imports or oem Toyota is just way better. Either way, good point there.

A SAS with a decent set-up would take care of the issues.

Long travel would push the tire out; but then you have even more trimming from the apron/fender.

Again; IMHO; itís not worth it.

Iím running 4.88s which is good for street/weekend wheeling; Iím at 2200 RPM at 70MPH (yes, itís correct) with 37/12.50/17.

Hello, im new to this forum and t4rís in general, i bought my 98 with 265/70/17s and obviously i have no issues they fit fine with extra space, the previous owner did a slight lift with what looks like bilstein 5100ís but i havent been able to rack mine up and check. I want to build mine as a comfortable daily driver that I can also take out on weekends, and offroading at a moments notice. I picked up some 17x9 methods and my buddy happened to have a set of 285/70/17 ko2ís. So thats about a 33? I dont mind cutting because im going to have to do it anyway. But what gas mileage should I expect? Id like to regear preemptively for better fuel economy especially but im also not sure what i should go with. What made you go with 4.88ís? Should I also regear to 4.88ís soon considering my rig will only get heavier from here on out with bumpers, winch and armor etc etc? I honestly dont think ill go with bigger tires unless i get another daily or if i go long travel in the long run.
