    I’ve found MANY threads on lifting 1st gens for larger tires but didn’t find the specifics I’m looking for. I need new tires for my ‘06 Tundra SR5 4WD access cab 4.7L & I’m looking to go just a bit bigger from the stock 265/70R16 (30.6”x10.4”) to 265/75R16 (31.6”x10.4”) with just a little lift to get a bit closer to a “modern” truck height. I’m not looking for off road adventure or performance. Just a bit of cool factor, maybe. I’ve seen a lot of threads recommending Bilstein 5100’s. I’m guessing that would be the adjustable 24-261425 for the front & 24-100144 for the rear? The fronts are adjustable to about 0-1” for my truck (the Bilstein instructions don’t recommend going past the 3rd clip position for mine which is ~1.1”) but the rears aren’t adjustable. So would the Toytec TAC-AL rear add-a-leaf be a decent option for the rear lift? They say it lifts ~1.5” so that might bring the rear up more than the front so would the Eibach E60-82-066-02-10 fronts be a better choice because they advertise them as adjustable to 0-3”? Their instructions don’t limit you to only 3 of the 5 clip positions based your exact model. I’m not sure if that’s as safe or accurate as Bilstein’s instructions but that’s what they say. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The 265/75 will fit without the lift. You could go ahead and do tires now and lift later.
    I'm running 265/75 on 3rd gen tacoma wheels. I run 1.25 inch spidertrax spacers but these wheels sit further inboard than factory so if you have factory wheels you should be fine.

    If you are looking for more of a level look, don't bother lifting the rear. You have 4wd so you want to lift the front as little as possible to keep your cv joints happy. I would lift the front with the shock of your choice.

    The rear, with no lift at all, can fit a 35" tire. The 265/75 is no problem without a lift in the rear. Rear you can run the 5100s without lifting as well and they will be fine. I ran for a few years that way.
