    Figured it's time to start this thread, more so that I can keep track of what I've done and when than anything else.

    2006 Double Cab TRD was purchased in March 2019 with 102,000 miles from an older gentleman in the greater Seattle area. Truck was pretty much completely stock, other than a set of Westin Nerf bars and a set of pretty decent Toyo Open County A/T.

    Current modifications
    • WeatherTech FloorLiner mats - Apr 2019
    • Yakima Outpost HD w/ HD bars - Apr 2019
    • Smittybuilt Overlander RTT - Apr 2019
    • Total Chaos steering rack bushings - Feb 2020
    • Bilstein 5160 rear - Feb 2020
    • Bilstein 6112 front (8th and 6th perch) - Feb 2020
    • Falken Wildpeak 255/80/17 A/T3W - Feb 2020

    After the 6112 / 5160 / TRD Off-Road wheels / 255/80/17. Not sure if it needs to come up in the back or not. We'll see how it all settles out. The big negative so far is that the wheel/tire combo rubs against the frame at full lock...

    @trailbikerider I took the truck out for a first drive today, and the 255/80/17 were rubbing on the frame pretty hard at full lock, both in drive and reverse...did you have a similar problem when you were running the 4Runner wheels?

    Do you think spacers would solve that issue? On my 3rd gen 4runner I had the techs set the castor forward and that had good effect on my rubbing. The wheel was a little stiffer but it tracked great on the highway. Food for thought....

    I ran 1.25" spacers when I had the T4R wheels for the same reason - the factory wheels have a fairly high offset.

    Ok awesome, I ordered some Spidertrax 1.25", as it seemed like those would be about the correct amount. Thanks for the confirmation!
