    Anything over 3” on 4x4 creates many issues with CV angles. I would also stay away from spacer lifts. What is your budget ?

    U get what u pay for.... Look for lift coils, new shocks, and a progressive add a leaf.

    Good afternoon, New here just bought my 2nd Tacoma have always been to broke to buy a new one. however I finally broke down and did so. I have been out of off roading for a bit now. I am looking as well for a lift for my 19 TRD off road. I however do NOT want to void any warranty on this vehicle at this time. I have ordered as of now rough country 3 inch lift....I know just spacers...not going to be screwing off much in the dirt so not worried about travel. It was be more of a daily driver; I just want it to look good. My question is can I run a 285 or even a 295 with 18 inch rims? Thank you guys for the help in advance.

    If you are worried about a warranty that much, i would call your dealership ASAP AND BEFORE u install the lift, i swear toyota said some crap about voiding warranties on the third gen tacomas with any lift. They seem to have some gremlins that toyota wants to weasel out of.
    I swear they said it voids trans warranty or something. Make the call, and find out.

    According to the sales rep...and service manager it will not. They were going to put one on for me until I found out the price and it was absolutely ridiculous at 300 for the lift...Ok...600 to install. I could understand if it was full but dang just blocks...Ill do it myself they said as long as you do not remove any major component you will be good can I fit those tires and wheels though?

    What’s the offset on the 18” and how wide is it?

    That wheel has 5.5” of backspace. I believe the best chance for clearance is 4.5” of backspace. You should probably be looking for a -12 offset for a 9”rim.
