    I wanted to lift mine till I read great multitudes of threads on lifts.

    Cutting cab mounts.
    Alignment problems.
    Stock or aftermarket UCA's.
    Weird sounds.
    Vibrations when taking off and slowing down.
    CV joint angle.
    Shimming the rear leaf springs.
    Loss of MPG with bigger tires.

    List goes on, just thought of those off the top of my head.

    Only time it's off road is the beach.

    I bought a 4x4 SR5, only thing I've done to it for beach driving was switched the stock wheels and tires.

    From 245-75/16 to 265/65-17 Toyo Open Country AT's. Almost exactly the same height, but around 1 1/2" wider.

    I'd planned on going with 265/70-17, but didn't want to take more of a hit in gas mileage. I lost about 1.5 MPG just going with the wider tires.

    Not sure but if you go wider than 265, you may need wheel spacers, or offset wheels. I'm just guessing here...honestly have no clue.

    I think we need more side-by-side pics from the same angle when anybody mods their truck. The upgrades on this truck are really impressive.
