sorry i kinda gave false info haha. i forget about it since i have t-bars. i believe being coil sprunk fabtech says their 3" kit will clear 32's with minor trimming(usually mud flaps lol)

so yes on a 2wd edge like mine 33's clear seeing as it has 4wd suspension

really 31's look great still as long as you get a beefy lookin mt under there :)

im sure everyone is sick of my toyo plugs but they are a great tire!
very quiet on the pavement compared to most and they get wayyyy better wear
but they do cost a bit more

All the pics of 2wds on 33s I've seen they have had more that 3 inches. Now an edge/sport with spindle works because they are already 2 inches taller from the start
hahahah sry DIDN'T

i will be lifted on 33's as soon as i wear my tires out :)

and josh i think you are thinking of wheel spacers??? lol
the coil spacers just install on the top between the spring and the mount. the bolts with the kit are longer than stock to make sure everything holds tight. not sure on the rangers but i know on the new silverados you move your shocks from left to right because of the way the holes in the spacers are drilled. i believe it's the same on the tacomas also but it's been awhile since i've done them at work

FRXLT has that lift with 33s. If you don't go that route just get spindles for now. Then bodlylift it. There are a couple trucks with that set up looks good

Yeah wheel spacers suck. Imo lol. I would rather not be torquin lugnuts every two days but to each their own.
I don't believe the stock wheels work. You need different backspacing or it will hit on the knuckle. I would look it up but I am tired and work in 6 hours haha. Just check fabtech's site they have a pretty good explanation of what you would need. Peace out I'll be back tomorrow!

i will say again the max tire size they post is kinda dumb. it says 32" for my truck which i can do with no lift at all. seriously when it says trimming might be needed its just a mudflap or splashguard lol.
