    Anyone own a 3rd gen Tacoma?

    Like the title states. I'm looking at tires and lifts, but have some concerns on how high I can go (since its not a sfa). I want to put 33x10.5's on it.

    A 3" lift is as high as you want to go. Lifts higher than that require major modifications to the truck, including cutting crossmember/frame. 33x10.5's will fit with a 3" lift but might rub on the cab mount. A "cab mount chop" is easy and solves the problem, Eric at relentless sells plates to cover the chopped cab mounts. Between myself and my friends I've lifted and put 285/75/16's on 3 third gens and one second gen now, only one third gen rubbed and it's on the cab mount.

    I am running 3 1/2" - 4" of lift currently. With only some minimal trimming of plastics. No cab mount chop. I do not rub on anything. Running 285/75/16 duratracs.

    Yeah, it started as a stage 4 kit, so they are the 2.0. I added 1/2" spacers in the front and cranked them up about 4 turns. In the back I swapped the springs out for the OME Dakar springs with the full length add a leaf, and the extended travel Icon 2.0 to match the front. I have been very happy with the suspension!
