    So I’ve read on this post https://www.tundras.com/threads/bmc-needed-for-toyo-285-75-17.18244/ (response #9) that changing the upper control arm could cause some rubbing with 285/75/17’s which I’m planning on running with icon six speed wheels. I was planning on running an OME lift/level with the Dakar leaf pack and spc upper control arms. Will I have any issues with that set up? Pros/cons of changing upper control arms? And How far out would that set up stick the wheels (I also plan on getting busheacker fender flares and would at the very least like the wheels and tires to fill that extra coverage I think it looks horrible when people have stock tires and fenders that stick out farther than they do)? I do like a wider stance. I’d say minimal off-roading mainly when we go to camp and a few trails around here I’d LOVE to avoid CMC. Do t mind removing mud flaps, I think they look stupid anyway lol.

    Whats the offset on the wheels? The SPC's have the adjustable uniball (great for alignment and adjustability)

    I believe the six speeds are a +25 offset with 5.75 backspacing
