    Hi All,

    New member here, been lurking for few months doing my research. Read a ton of very informative posts and I am about ready to pull the trigger on a suspension setup. Looking for some of you to poke holes in my setup or help me confirm I'm on the right track before I drop some coin.

    Found me a 2014 SR5 Double Cab during the lock-down and pulled the trigger. Was deciding between this and a 2016 TRD Pro. I really liked the look of the Pro, but couldn't sacrifice the bed space for dirt bikes so ended up going for the SR5 with the preconceived notion that I would modify it to get the look and ride dialed in for me. I tend to keep vehicles a while so looking at this with a long time horizon and also prefer function over form.

    Live in Reno aka "The biggest little city" and while I mostly drive roads, I do venture into the desert for dirt bike races. Think 50-100 mile stretch of high speed dirt/sand roads with washboards your occasional G out, big pothole etc. Winter time up here does have some snow travel too with trips up to ski resorts etc. This is mostly mild snow driving, but occasionally the roads get gnarly as our city plow service sucks and the streets can turn into a mess of unevenly compacted snow. I rarely tow or haul heavy loads.

    If I were to break down my driving I'd say 80% Highway/Street, 10% Desert Roads, 10% Snow

    Ok so after lots of research here's what I'm thinking:

    Fox 880-06-947 2.5 Adjustable Coilovers in Front 3”
    Camburg PERFORMANCE 1.50 UNIBALL UPPER ARM
    Fox 883-26-006 2.5 Adjustable Rear’s
    Icon TUNDRA REAR EXPANSION PACK KIT 1.5”

    Would swap out the stock 275/65 18’s with either


    285/75 17 and go with method 701 wheels

    Or

    295/70 18


    Thoughts, opinions, comments??


    Oh here’s the before pic, for ya:

    Welcome from SoCal. I think you are on the right track!!! I have a 3/1.5 lift and wish I went 35’s and just did the BMC but I went 295/70/18 and they still looks good. The Fox 2.5 with DSC is an awesome setup. I had a chance to ride in a Tundra with the Fox 2.5 with DSC both on and off-road and they are impressive.

    Very nice, looks like you got good clearance in there, did you have to trim anything? Do the tires stick out past the wheel wells at all? I had thought about 35's too, so many choices...

    No trimming required but I do have a very slight rub on the front finder liner but nothing crazy. My offset is +25. Here is a side shot to show how much the wheels poke out.

    Thanks for these pics!!! I think I'm sold on the 295/70/18 setup as I don't want the tires to poke out much and it looks like your setup is perfect.
