    Hey guys. It’s another stupid lift question. I’ve been through the forums 10 times. I’m also in the AZTG on FB. I’m sure most of y’all here are too. I know everyone does the 3/1. Can you do a 4/2 with icons? I’ve been eyeing Westcott designs lifts lately and I think he does a trd problift with the foxes.I’ve got An AZ toy pros quote for a stage 5 icon lift. But I’m really wondering if I should goto a 4 inch lift for clearance. I don’t do any extreme wheeling but I enjoy all of our state and don’t want to be limited. Do any of you wish you had another inch of clearance? My wheels will be rock warriors and I think those are something like +50 offset and I hope to run 35” nitto ridge grapplers. I’m open to change on the tires.

    first thing, the fb page is mostly full of terrible advice. Mostly people that take pictures of their trucks in curbs. Don’t take suspension advice from there haha.

    stick with the 3/1. To get more than that up front you would need to go to a drop bracket lift which will end up hurting your clearance. With coilovers set at 3” and 35” tires you will be super happy. That’s what the majority of people run here.

    once you go to a 4” (not even sure they make one) or a 6” lift you are more than likely going to end up with a big ole spacer on the top of your factory shocks and a big block in the rear. Performance wise you would be better leaving it stock.

    IMO just get a good set of coilovers, upper arms and rear shocks and you will be happy for a while. King, fox, ADS, icon are all good quality and will ride great.

    good luck!

    I'm at 3.5" up front by using the TRD Pro shocks (I've got the older Bilstein version) along with Coachbuilder shims (2 per side) and then Jeff at Westcott Designs added their collar from their TRD Pro kit to gain the extra 1/2". In the rear I'm running the TRD Pro shocks with the Coachbuilder +3 shackles. No issues at all. Running 295/70/18 Cooper AT3 XLT's without a CMC.

    If you guys had to choose between upgrading rims / tires or upgrading suspension, which would you do and why?

    I’d love to do both but realistically only have the budget to do one in the near-term.

    Well...If you wanted to run bigger tires you'd need the suspension lift first to make the extra room needed, so I'd start there if it were me.

    Edit: Also consider how much tread you currently have.

    (Put this in the wrong thread at first):

    Checked out the Tucson wash with a friend yesterday. Lots of places to explore and some side roads that are a little more gnarly than the main dirt wash, which we saw a sedan rolling through.

    Hey guys I posted this on the AZ Tundras FB page, but figured I'd ask here too.

    Need some urgent help. I have stock 2018 Platinum with the 20" wheels. Couple months ago swapped the OEM Tires out for All-terrain Nitto Ridge Grapplers (still on the stock 20" platinum wheels) Earlier this week I had my 20K mile service done at Autonation Toyota in Tempe, which included a tire rotation. I bought this truck there (used) and they've always been good to deal with.

    As soon as I got the truck back I took a quick run on the highway and noticed a pretty decent vibration in the steering wheel starting around 55mph and worse around 65-70. Immediately brought it back to AutoNation and told the service advisor. We talked and told him the tires were pretty new, and he suggested that I contact the place I bought them from and see if they can check/balance the wheels. Fair enough.

    Went to a Big O Tires today (where i bought them from) and asked to have the wheels balanced. While they didn't charge me, which was nice, I did ask if any of the wheels were out of balance. The response I got was "I dunno, we just rip the old weights off and balance them" Seems less than efficient if you ask me but whatever..

    The problem I have is now the vibration is actually worse. I could have tolerated it before but this is 10x worse that it was.

    The urgent part of this post is I'm supposed to make a 10 Hour Drive to eastern Colorado on Monday, pulling a small RV. I need this fixed asap.

    So I need some advice here, should I bring it back to AutoNation and see what they can do? Or is there any shop anyone can recommend that can actually balance a wheel properly, especially a big all-terrain tire? Any ideas what could be wrong? My guess is that the wheels on the back always had a small vibration and I didn't notice it until they were rotated up front? Any input is appreciated.

    If it got worse when they rebalanced them then that’s most likely the issue. Take it to a better shop and have them rebalance them. When you leave get on the highway, if it’s still there go right back and tell them that it’s worse or better.

    could always try a road force balance, but that’s not always the answer. Should be in the tires, just take it somewhere else, hopefully they will care more that that big-o

    You will likely have to pay Discount Tire on Elliot between Hardy & Priest on the north side of the road. While you didn't purchase the tires there they will balance them & get it right the first time.
    Or, if you prefer to stay within the Big O Tires the 48th Street & Warner location has a very good manager. Her name is Brooke. Tell her your issue & I'm sure she will fix the issue. What Big O Tires have you been going to? If you pm me I'll give you more information so you can name drop me with her. I've worked with her for several years.
    Anyway, hello from Chandler (Dobson/Elliot) & good luck.

    Per the suggestion of @WBW I ended up going to Big-O on 48th/Warner. They got me rolling smooth again. Thanks all!

    Hi all you Arizonans, just thinking about doing a Crown king run with my tundra on October 3. Just seeing if anyone would be down to join me. It's just me and my brother (2018 cement gray tundra:yay:) and a taco guy, let me know if your interest.

    We had to change the date due too work so Saturday October 3. The trail begins by Lake Pleasant and it ends in a mountain town Crown King. Plan for pretty much 3/4 of a day. We have 3 tundras 1 taco 3 jeeps going so far.

    I would not take my stock truck through there. Could it make it, sure but it would be work in places

    Dang... ya my truck is new so can’t justify getting rid of a new set of tires. After this set is ready to be changed I’ll take the leap and do a lift, wheels, and tires.

    Looking to pickup a 2020 or 21 Tundra soon in Phoenix. Best dealers or any contacts? Not wanting to pay MSRP of course and doesn't seem like any of the dealers are itching to make deals. So I may wait in the end.

    The section after the mine with the ledge and deep ruts would probably cause some bottoming out for the middle and rear on a stock truck. These trucks are long and wide.

    I had good luck at big two Toyota. I always felt really pressured at camelback and ended up buying my truck at right Toyota, but I was there for the better part of half a day to get a good deal. At big two I helped a friend get a great deal on a Tacoma and the guy almost instantly gave us a great deal without all the hassle.

    I’m sure people have different experiences at different dealerships. Personally, I absolutely hate Big Two Toyota and will probably never buy a vehicle from there. Long story, maybe just a bad salesperson I was working with, but that place sucked.

    It's definitely the sales person, when I went back to buy my truck I started at big two and the salesman I got was awful, apparently he was the manager. When I would try to haggle I would just get "Your so smart". Like dude, haggle or don't but don't waste everyones time playing bad mindgames. At right Toyota I ended up having to go up to the top guy at the dealership to make a decent deal. Each time was a "your crazy" but sure enough he made the deal in the end.

    Stock will make it but like a couple of guys here said a bit of clearance is recommended for sure. I normally drill my jeep but the trail is no challenge for Nomad! Never done the trail in my truck, but 2 wheel drive will make it.

    I got my 2006 and 2011 tundras at Tempe Toyota, got my Tacoma at Camelback and my 4 runner trd pro at Big two got my 2019 tundra at Bell road because they had the only Cement gray non trd 4x4 in the state. To be completely honest didn't really like any of them.

    This is pretty much how I feel at this point. Camelback has a swarm of sales people every time that seem to all have only been working there for 3 weeks and are pushy. They also touted their $500 door edge plastic which cracked me up. Right Toyota can't seem to be bothered to sell me something that they actually have and don't list any discounts. Talked to one person at Earnhardt who was pretty reasonable but haven't been there yet. Buying a car is such an unnecessary PITA.
