    Sadly I have no photo of the goat, a 2015 black trail edition with KDSS, from the day of purchase. I recently added TRD wheels, 275/70/17 bfg ko2's, spider Trax 1.25" spacers, TRD skid (modified due to KDSS), black gorilla lug nuts, n-fab nerf bars, Toyota garnish, and a toytec boss suspension lift.

    Here it is before and after lift

    Trimmed TRD skid plate. Not as fancy as others have done but it fit with removal of the radiator support brackets. Now all I need to do is trim the existing lower bumper-filler piece

    Love the stance, finally looks like there's some testosterone floating about

    Considering the trd pro wheels for my wifes and KO2 as well.
    Are the spacers a necessity?
    Do you like the tire size? Wish you went bigger? Any rubbing?

    Spacers are cosmetic only and contribute to more rubbing with a 275. I wish I went 295 honestly and methods instead of the TRD wheels

    A little time line of Phyllis. Found some old pics on the cloud. First day, 275's, boss Toytec, to 295 Toyo R/T's.

    Rigid fog upgrade and dual arb compressor. I'm thinking rear bumper over the winter due to a 295 tire not fitting in the spare location, gobi rack, then bumper with a winch.

    How is the ride with the BOSS kit? Did you do a rear track bar to accommodate your KDSS?

    I noticed mild on road improvement and substantial offroad improvement. On road I noticed a firmer, more planted ride while offroad I noticed an improvement all around on all types of terrain. I did not get a rear track bar as my rear is lifted just under 2" (my shop leveled it out).

    What did you have to trim to fit those 295's? I'm thinking body mount, and a lot? of trimming to the front fender liner? Happen to have any pictures?

    The last two of the truck are all I have. Can you be more specific with what you would like to see? I have had a body mount chop and minor fender trimming but I am getting minor rub under compression and full lock on the inner front fender. I have 1.25 spacers on as well with the TRD wheels as pictured.

    I was just asking if you had any pictures of the trimmed liner. But if you say minor, I can envision what your talking about. Thanks though.

    I paid my shop to do the install. No the fogs did not come with brackets. I'm not sure if rigid does a package deal (brackets + LEDs) but I have seen it available somewhere on the interwebs. The ol' Googler should help

    What's going on bro, Like the whip .

    I was considering the 1.25" spidertrx spacers on the same wheels 275's.you mentioned more rubbing? In full lock reverse? I like the look with the wheel spacers but not at the expense of my ride.

    I had rubbing with 275 bfg ko2s on TRD wheels, no spacers with stock ride hight (more substantial = half lock, forward and reverse). I had rubbing with a toy tech boss kit + 275 bfg ko2 on TRD wheels with spacers (less substantial = full lock in reverse and forward on a pitch).

    Both being with front fender removal and minor trim. I have read on numerous posts that every vehicle differs slightly and that you could throw 275's on TRD wheels and get zero rub with or without the spacers.

    I believe the difference in offset from stock wheel to trd, as well as the spacers will contribute to more rub along with upgrade in tire size. Hope this helps.

    Been a bit. Just got CBI full skid back from powder coat. C4 sliders ship at the end of the month, and a hefty fab rear bumper with dual swing outs should ship any day now. Will post as I can.

    Trd cai installed today, hefty rear bumper, c4 sliders, and ditch lights coming soon. Here is also a little preview of what is in store...

    Received the c4 sliders from powdercoat. Armorcoatings in Salt Lake City does a hell of a job. Installed by myself with stock jack in 95° temps laying on the asphault of my appartment complex, will post finished pics tomorrow

    It was reccomended to me by vin of stealth custom series. For me mainly security purposes as I will have a 5th on a swing out also. I dont plan on trying to match lugs with the brushed gold and thought black would look better with black center cap

    Got the ray 10's put on today. I was extremely anxious that I wouldn't like the look but was pleasantly surprised. They have a more aggressive offset than the trd wheels so im getting a little more rub on the back of the front fender well..not sure what to do...maybe chop some more or adjust castor.

    Took Phyllis the goat out in Moab today. Hit up chicken corners. New rago fabrication ditch lights (side shooters) from the group buy, install was easy peasy.
