    I've decided a 6 inch lift is too much for my 2016 SR5. Given I have the TRD OR pkg, does this affect which type of lift I should consider? I will not be doing much off-roading but read that spacer lifts at 4" or more are not ideal from a performance standpoint.

    Not sure if I'm going with 35s but would definitely be at least a 33-34. I like the look where the tire just extends slightly beyond the wheel well.

    My factory wheel may not have the back spacing to handle a larger tire without rubbing.

    I personally would never get a spacer lift of more than 2.5".
    If you want 35" tires I would recommend a 3"+ lift, check out OME lift with a shackle in the rear.
    Unless you bought new wheels, you would probably have to get some wheel spacers from Spidertrax too to fit the 35s.

    Lots of options out there though! Plenty of people will chime in. Have fun with it :cheers:

    Agree with this one. Either spidertrax wheel spacers or aftermarket wheels, 34.5 or 35" tires and Toytec Boss.

    You can go up to 3" of lift with an Old Man Emu, Bilstein, or Coilover Kit. Some people have run up to 35s. To lift more than 3" you will need to go with a Drop-Bracket type of kit. These are not bad for street driven vehicles as the keep the suspension geometry close to stock, as well as the driving/handling characteristics.

    All of the different trim levels are built the same for the suspension. There is just a difference with the coilovers and shocks that are provided. The lift kit would be the same for all trim levels.

    If you do not off-road at all then a spacer suspension lift is ok. Make sure to get a quality one though like Toytec offers. Definitely don't go over 3" on a spacer lift.
    New coilovers and rear shocks will be helpful to get extended length for the change in height.

    So its sounding like I'm not getting much bang for the buck out of the TRD off road pkg?

    I have a 2016 SR5 with the TRD package. Add some rear shackles, new coil overs, and change out the the rear shocks and the TRD package becomes a waste of money. Only thing things left is the badging and thin skid plate. I would have did it differently.
