I love the TRD pro wheels and don't want to get rid of them unless I could get the same wheels in an 8" diameter. I don't know why they made them 7" for us.

P.S: you will love the AG Pro


Well that is my problem was too,that make me not to buy TRDP back in 2018. I mean you paying all those $$$ just for better suspension as dealer was saying. I just went the other way. I got 2018 TRD ORP, suspensions cost nothing, installed some Kings 2.5 , 285/70 Falkens M/T ,got ~3Ē front lift, installed 1Ē taller spring on rear and got ~ 6k in my wallet,in case if I bought TRDP . Well about the spacers they will make your rubbing even worth. I had those for 3 months and took them off . One thing for sure you will have to lift front at least 2Ē-2Ē in order to fit 285/ 70 on TRD PRO rims. But it is possible, I did on mine

Not an answer thats 100% complete since nothing is installed (and truck only arrived at the dealer today) but what I ordered is the Eibach 1" lift rear coil and 2" front cornfed spacer. I plan on going to the front Eibach lift coils when they are released for a simple lift that still works with the stock Fox.

Main reason I did this was to fit my upgraded wheels & tires a bit better. (18x9, 0 offset) and 285/65/18 tires.

Spacers for lift and not for width

I wasn't very clear in the OP. It was recommended to place a 2 inch spacer for lift, not a wheel spacer kit. My fault for the confusion. Carry on and thanks for the feedback. It is invaluable.

It was mainly for looks and not function. I wouldn't want to lose function for looks.

Yeah I cannot wait. Not sure about that. But I would think running the bigger tires put more a strain on the truck and your gas. I know when when I had SCS wheels on my Tacoma with 265-70-17 same size as the 4runner with that 8.5 inch wheel my truck looked much better with the wheels making the tires fit at better stance. Itís a tough call.

Thatís why I donít want spacers anywhere. It definitely gives you the look, but functionality will be poorer. I had spacers on front, on rear and wheels. Took them all off driving so much better. I just after quality right now. If you want hight get longer,higher grade springs and aftermarket UCAS. Thanks

Yeah it definitely gives your 4RUNNER Bad ass look. I love it . But like someone already said. Bigger tires , bigger rims thatís great, just make sure you have enough motor to push it. Those are Heavy rims and tires. Your truck wonít run the same. But I like that stands!!! Thanks

Front spacer is meant as a stop gap until Eibach releases their front lift coil.. Not meant to be long term at all. I really like the ride of the Fox suspension and just want a bit more height.

Yep. Thatís the way to do it. I got Eibach springs on rear so far like them. Much better then OEM holds the weigh, and almost doesnít sagging when loaded. Good choice!

I did Burtman Industries 1.5Ē/1Ē spacer lift on my Pro and I really like it. I have 275 KO2ís and fully articulated off road there is no contact. Spacers will create a rubbing problem. I did not want to remove my mud flaps or make any other modifications. Fender liner mod is already done on the Pro. With the combination of the E rated tire and the spacers, it does ride slightly rougher. I have been running this setup for 15 months without issue. It was only $400 for the spacers, installation and alignment. I personally like the look of the Pro wheels and the offset offers no problems clearing the UCAís and the body mount.

Spacers on a 2020 TRD Pro

TRD PRO 5th Gen

Get the corned 2/1.5 kit and donít look back.
It will stiffen up the suspension a bit. Road manners become better with less body roll and nose dive.
I have some rubbing on the front bumper, but only at full lock in reverse.
Iím running 285/70x17

I've lifted every 4x4 vehicle I have ever had. It has changed the ride quality every time. When I was younger I didn't care. I bought the Pro for the suspension. I wish it was taller and had a better stance, but I love the ride quality so I'm not touching the suspension at the moment.

The truth about spacers:

-they can make rub worse
-they can fail if improperly installed and/or torqued
-many tire shops and some dealers won't work on a vehicle with spacers, the others may damage the studs with an impact gun by overtorquing the hell out of the wheel nuts
-they provide mostly a cosmetic appearance as widening the track typically won't affect a properly aligned vehicle
-your truck, your money, your time

This thread got confusing.

I think the OP was initially asking about a spacer LIFT (Cornfed, ToyTec etc), not wheel spacers (Spidertrx etc. )

It seems most of the responses are referring to wheel spacers and not a spacer lift.

I don't necessarily want to replace the FOX suspension to get the lift, and the parts and accessories guy recommended adding a 2 inch lift with spacers. The ride will be a bit stiffer but otherwise should be good to go. I would love to hear your opinions.
To the OP:

If you want to maintain TRD Pro capabilities and ride quality but want it to sit higher, spacer lift is the answer. It seems 2019 and 2020's are different than previous year TRD Pro's, so the options are very limited.

I'll be doing the Cornfed or Westcott Designs spacer lift kit in the next few weeks to my 2020. Haven't decided which one yet and was planning on starting a thread asking about opinions.

Cornfed 2" front 1" rear: $129

Westcott 1.5" front 1.25" rear: $350 (advertised to be different than a spacer lift, but same concept IMO)
