Would really appreciate some input here.

I have done much research...and after saving up some $$$ I have made my final decisions for my lift kit, wheels, and tires. Before dropping the cash I want to triple check that this would all fit.

My 07' is my daily driver, live in L.A, so I don't do much offroading, but when I do go, I want to have a rig that will be satisfactory.


Before anyone says anything, I WILL be doing a full BMC just to make sure everything fits with no rubbing.

Lift: Procomp 3"

Wheels:

6x5.5 bolt pattern, is 4.5in enough backspace?

If all else fails i'm throwing stock TRD's on:

Tires:

Will this all fit together? How much of a BMC will I need to do to compensate for rubbing?

Looks like a similiar set-up to my original lift. I really don't know anything about the ProComp lift but was very happy with my OME. I would say my body mount chop is pretty aggressive and I have never gotten into it with the same size tire you are looking at.

Thanks!


Anyone else?

You asked for input, so here are my thoughts. It looks like you are setting up to go off road meaning this is not going to be a mall crawler. Pro Comp are basically entry level shocks, if I was doing your truck I would contact member "Vegas Nick" and look at the cost of the new fully adjustable IronMan Foam Cell shocks and springs. I would even hold off on the wheels for now in favor of the much better quality, adjustable shocks. I am not sure what the Pro comp shock warranty is but if you blow a front shock in a year the labour alone to replace could justify the better choice now. Your choice is not a bad choice, I would just get more info about the option I have suggested.

Similar to above, I would think twice about the Explorer Pro Comp lift.

For a little bit more, go with the Old Man Emu.

For a little bit more than that, go with Toytec.

Gotcha. Thanks folks! I'll go with the toytec boss then. Wouldn't hurt in the long run.
Excellent decision.

#1 rule I follow with my truck... Buy once. A lot people buy budget or spacer lifts to get the 'looks' as fast as possible, only to buy another suspension when they realize you get what you pay for.
