    None. YET!!!

    Thanks for the add. Just picked up a 2019 White 4x4 Limited Nightshade.

    First order of business is to change out those hideous tires and wheels they come with.

    1st. Looking at 20x9 wheels with 0 offset and 5” backspacing. Toyo AT2 275/55/20 tires. Any issues with this setup? I know the stock backspacing is 4.5”, so is half an inch something to be worried about?

    2nd. Need recommendations for a level lift for a AWD 4Runner. I’ve talked to 3 shops, they all tell me they aren’t interested in touching the AWD system.

    Thanks for reading.

    I’d reach out to Toytec lifts. They master in Toyota’s I’m sure they can assist you in locating a lift kit.

    Welcome. I like the TRDOR takeoffs as wheels for the LE, but with the nightshade you've got more than fit to look out for. I can't answer wheel sizing questions, but a good shop should be able to help with the math I think. Of course, tire fit is important too, and not many options for you without $eriou$ investment in a different suspension.

    Those shops don't want to level because the XREAS is a linked system and they don't want to be responsible for busting the line. But it's been done before, so you can find someone to do it or do it yourself. (Or remove the XREAS entirely... or leave it all alone...)
