    Im not sure, but it is highly not recommend, alot of moving and rerouting parts, which gets $$$. Plus are trucks are very high center of gravity, at 3” 40mph where i live is about as fast as i want to take a turn. Plus out trucks are not very powerful, so the size tire you would probably run would be a haul.

    I would not go over 2" personally but many run 3" and are fine.

    If you want 5 or 6 inch left, go for it. It's your truck, no one else's. Fabtech makes a few kits; the shop I take my 4runner to just did one for another 4runner (6 inch), and they had good things to say. The kit is designed to let you go up to 35 inch tires.

    Any modification you do, however, will change the engineering of the truck; the question is: does it make you happy. I say, if so, then go for it.

    Best,

    Best 6” lift I’ve ever had was induced by a little blue pill. Yes I was a little top heavy and couldn’t stay in my lane, but the hills and valleys were quite beautiful. Seems a lot of forests are clear cut these days.

    You an go 6" and 35"s with trimming, hammering, and you will absolutely need to regear. Why not stick 3" like most?
