Can't find exactly what I am looking for in searches. Does anyone with a 4x2 run a level lift and 285/70/17's? How does that work out? Any idea what a spacer lift would cost, including install? I'm not too mechanically inclined...
easiest way to lift a 4X2 is to get a set of 4X4 shocks that some one upgraded from.
That's what I did...got some TRD shocks and a set of 4X4 springs...sometimes someone will give them away for the cost of shipping. The installation and alignment ran me $300.and I've been very happy with this set up.

Not too expensive and can install yourself, just jack up the truck and undo the three bolts at the top of the factory coilover, place this into the coil bucket and bolt back together then get it alligned and your done.
It worked good for a few months till I realized I wanted more outa my FJ and went with Icon's.
Any 2" or 3" spacers in the front will allow for 285's. I ran spacers for a year and then I upgraded to the full Icon's front and rears and Camburg UCA's. The ride was a 100x better. You will want to consider a body mount chop or you might have rub issues. I also run wheel spacers to widen the stance and I have not done the chop. I have no rubs and I run MT Good Year tires. They for some reason look thinner than other tires of the same size. then again it just might be my eyes.
