    3” and you’ll still need to do some chopping.

    Unless you do a 3” suspension lift and a 3” body lift you’re going to need to do some cutting. To my knowledge the only 6” options out there are drop bracket lifts which means you cut a frame cross member and bolt it up.

    Why 35” tires? Why not a 3” suspension lift and 33”-34” tires with a CMC and some fender liner tweaking?

    Doesnt fit what? The Pro model? No idea why it wouldn’t. If it fits the TRD OR without KDSS it should fit the Pro.

    Honestly sounds like you just want it for looks and not a need. I'd do a little digging to see what you really need and build off that.

    Here in Hawaii we have tons a 4runners that are overkill and just for paved roads.

    This is NOT mine.

    I saw that.
    Your money and your truck but to stuff 35” tires you’re going to have to cut and trim stuff.

    I’d also look into a regear for 35’s cause it’s gonna be a slug

    33's can get you a lot of places.

    But good luck if you set on 35s.

    Well, here’s some more info for you from t4r.org. I like the second post in the thread where the guy comments “You can pretty easily fit 35s for street use. Making it work off-road is a whole 'nother story.”

    I think you need to size the lift/tires for your needs. I'm not all for the biggest just because. But it is your truck.

    285s fit

    I have very minor rubbing on the body mount but I'm almost certain I can get an alignment shop to add more caster I can clear.

    I’m running an Old Man Emu 3” loft and 285/70/R17 BFG KO2’s on the OE wheels and stock UCA’s with zero rub or cutting necessary

    I am, well, 32.8” tires but I round up.

    If this is your first Offroad vehicle I would advise just using it Offroad and letting your experience dictate what you mod. Unless your just wanting to look cool in the mall parking lot, then I guess whatever floats your boat pimpin. :thumbsup:
