Spacer lift question

Okay guys I just bought some 285/75/16 Pro Comp Mud terrains and want to go with a spacer lift but I don't know if I will be able to run these or not. Anyone running spacers and these size tires? Any info you can give me will help.

Thanks,
Ben

You should be running at least a spacer lift with that size tire. Most people rub with that size tire and no lift. Although, i don't recommend spacer lifts. I suggest at a bare minimum, use OME 883 springs.

Yes. They are okay to run and don't hurt anything at all. So if you are wanting it to not rub and for the looks, it should do fine.

Rough country makes a decent one and there are one or two others, i think toytec has some good ones too. Pretty easy installs too

Re: Spacer lift question

I think I saw a Revtech kit under one of the Trail team rig's a couple years ago. I would look for fronts made of some sort of metal with a poly rear spacer. Good luck, have fun looking. I would get at LEAST an OME kit as soon as you can swing the cost of one.

Re: Spacer lift question

Rough Country sells a space lift that comes with a spacer up front, new springs and shocks for the rear. They also just started carrying a kit that comes with spacers up front and rear.

Re: Spacer lift question

Extremetrucktoys.com also offers spacer lifts from levelling lift on up.....I am very happy with mine and many rub 285's with just the 2in spacer (level lift). As long as you stick with stock wheels you should not have a problem. Some mud tires do rub the body mount but you will have to cross that bridge when you get to it.

You might also look into Daystar poli-kits. They are a synthetic material , urethane I think. There are a few guys in here running them although the kits come for front and rear lifts. I have garage issues so I was avoiding lifting the rear....

'07 FJ, C package, 5A, Ti

mods so far
Mod, mod, and more mods and it still looks way to friggin' stock.....grrrrr

Love my truck.....Love my forum

Is this the lift kit you're referring to?

Toyota FJ Cruiser Suspension Lift

I'm interested in picking this guy up, but they don't have any testimonials or reviews on their site from what I can see. Anyone have an opinion of this lift kit?
