    20180731_130613.jpg Picked up a 2018 TRD Off Road Premium with Pro package looking to level the front, but I want to keep the Pro suspension, recommendations anyone?

    Wait, its an Offroad with the Pro Package? I'm not really sure what that means. It's either one or the other. Is it an Offroad with Pro suspension?

    Looks like they have a "Pro" package now... this is the third time I've heard of someone buying an ORP with the "Pro" package... I know it is so much more convenient to have them do it before you take it home... but I'm bettin they charge a pretty penny for it.

    ... anyway.. I digress.... that Off Road looks pretty dang good with the Pro package.

    I think that the "Pro" package may be a dealer specific option. Certian dealers will add PRO wheels, suspension, badging, etc for an extra fee. Just saw a dealership in Colorado offering a Pro Package for 9,500

    Dang I've never heard of that package option. I wonder how Toyota Corporate feels about that package haha.

    Toytec makes a 2" space lift for the TRD Pro coilovers. It comes with the lift for front and rear however. Not sure if you just installed the front spacers if it would level out or have a bro lean.

    IMO the rear is a bit too high than the front...

    Was looking at my front suspension and it appears that the dealership added the lower spacer to the strut already, heading back to Right Toyota Thursday now that the suspension has settled and my 285's are rubbing the front bumper while backing.

    Everybody is saying there might still be rubbing issue w/ 285 even w/ 3+ lift. I guess to avoid BMC, mudflap removal, or fender liner trimming is to get 275. Bigger tires will cause worse mileage and harsh on your drivetrain and also speedometer adjustment needed to avoid speeding tickets.

    Yeah but them there big tires is fun! LOL

    I have 35's on my truck and it adds about 3-4 mph...if you know how much it adds it is a matter of dropping your speed by that amount, no need to adjust the speedometer ;)
    I C O M P L E T E L Y agree however with the gas mileage....it is HORRIBLE....but cutting through stuff like snow and mud makes it ALL worth it!!! not to mention the wide eyed looks from people when I drive by. :)

    I don't mind mudflap removal or fender liner trimmibg but certainly don't want a BMC. From what people been saying is that a 285 they still had rubbing issues EVEN w/ a 3" lift, and I have a 3" lift and don't wish to do a BMC that's why I'm sticking w/ 275 to avoid it.

    Is there some happy median between cheap ass spacers and the $750 that 4WP wants for a Bilstein lift which sounded like adjustable shocks and a front end alignment?

    Get the 2" Toyotec lift like what everyone is doing nowadays for their TRD PRO. The TRD PRO is already lifted 1" at the front and 2" front spacer lift will give u 3" lift total up front. And the rear is 2" w/ new springs
