Finally its all coming together, got the toolbox, tint... Now im just waiting for school to be over so i can put on the 3in spacers.

But im goin with the 285/75/17 terra grapplers which say they are 33.86 inches tall, an inch taller than the 285/70/17s. Its gonna be tight but hopefully i wont have to trim much. We'll see how it goes...

They dont carry them too many places but some online retailers do and they're checking at Tire Kingdom tomorrow. But they have them on Nitto's site, so they do exist!

Check out Tirerack.com and look at the bigger brand name tire selection. BFG has a few sizes now that weren't available a few years ago when I bought my 285/75-16 all-terrains.

To compare tire size of these matrics, the best tool I've found on the net is this Tire size calculator. Gives you a 2D graphic comparison as well as the conversion #'s. :tu:

I ended up ordering 295/70/17 trail grapplers today. Cant wait to get them on, but im not really happy with my 3 in lift from toytec. My truck sits even at 37in in the front and back but still has the appearance of leaning forward, which I absolutely hate.

That's the shape of the truck. It kind of gets skinny toward the front, aerodynamics I guess. Some times mine looks that way too, but it's the shape.

Yea, but today I had some sod in the back which set the rear down 1 inch and it looked sickk. Toytec actually said I could take out a leaf spring for my desired look, but not a good idea at all. Toytec said 2 inches usually levels the Tundra out, i guess not this time.

Stupid Question but, this truck towed alot of boats before I bought it. Would that make the rear suspension sag more or opposite?
