    does anyone have any info on the Toytec 4"inch lift its a 4" inch front lift (spacer kit) and 2"inch rear lift (block kit) Im about to purchase this soon but I wanted to know if I can fit 35s
    I really want the 6" inch lift but if I go with the 6"inch I wont fit in my parking garage so I decided on the 4"
    if anybody has any info or ideas leave your feedback will be much appreciated
    thanks.

    You can fit 35s with minor trimming of plastic on the front wheel well with a 3/1 lift. Might have to do the cab mount chop but may be able to get away without.
    I have 34.5" on mine with trimming of plastic and did not do the cab mount chop.
    @Sean266 has a 3rd gen with true 35's on a 3/1 Toytec Boss kit.
     
    Sean266 and 2cID like this.

    Ok so you will not need the diff drop and you don't have to worry about the cv angles.

    With any lift over 3" you will need new Upper Control Arms. Highly recommended to get to the 4" height. Stock will be maxed out and your alignment may be off. You can go with a ball joint like the SPC light racing ones for a little cheaper or a uniball like the Total Chaos ones.

    The Toytec spacer lift breaks up the lift height between above-coil and in-coil to reduce the amount of pre-loading and give the best ride.

    ok so another question I think I might go with the 3" but I see you had 17s do you think it will be a problem if I choose to go with 20s or 18s?

    No. 17" would be fine too, just make sure you have the proper wheel diameter.

    No problem with 17, 18 or 20" wheels. Just depends on the offset. Try to get something in the range of +30 to +18 to fit.
    @Sean266 i believe has 18" with +20 offset and 35s on a 3/1

    Up to you. If you are mechanically inclined its not that hard. If you do UCAs then it is very tough to get the bolts out, may want to have someone do it.
    There are instructions on Toytec website.
