    Hi All - First time posting.

    So, I just got a 2019 TRD OR and added a 2.5/1 leveling kit and replaced the stock tires/rims with 285/70/18's on Fuel Vapors. No issues with rubbing anywhere except on the mud flaps while turning in reverse. Does anyone know if adding a top plate spacer will help? (to bring the front up to 3") And yes...I know I could just remove the mud flaps, but thats no fun, right?

    Welcome from Massachusetts.

    There are some vendors that sell shim kits to move your front bumper forward about 1/2" which should give you the clearance you need. It has been mentioned in a few threads on this forum. I think Boss 4X4s has one and maybe Coachbuilder too.

    Generally not a good idea to stack lifts

    Thanks for the heads up. So, Toytec makes a 2.5" and a 3" leveling kit. It looks the difference between them is the 3" kit has the additional top plate spacer which brings it up an additional 1/2". Is this considered "stacking" lifts?

    The rubbing is coming from the mudflap behind the wheel, not the front...sorry. I removed the small mudflap attached to the bumper. Thanks though!

    @Toytec Lifts can comment on that but it looks like their kit was designed to take the extra shim from the start

    The 3'' spacer is simply our 2.5'' internal coil spring spacer and our 1/2'' top mount spacer, we design it that way to insure proper ride quality overall and making sure that the internal coil spring spacer does not compress the spring down to much and causing coil clash.

    @csuviper ran our 3'' spacer kit while we were rebuilding his coilovers and he liked he the ride a lot.

    Sometimes a good alignment shop can fix slight rubbing like this. Did you have everything aligned after the lift?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Still running the spacer kit because i am too lazy to get the rebuilt coilovers back on. Hopefully soon i will.
    I have the TRD sport stock shocks with the spacer kit. It really is amazing for the price. Ride is really good.

    They did. It only happens on the left side, which leads me to believe my added weight is bringing it down enough to rub. Hopefully the additional lift will help...

    I think with with aftermarket UCA like SPC u have more adjust for higher caster and can move the wheel forward more
