    Tried search for this information but was unable to find it. Can anyone clarify if there's is a difference between the LR UCA 25470 and 25480?

    I think 25480 is the Model number for the 4Runner, but 25470 (for Tacos) lists that it will fit 5th gen 4Runner.

    25480 is the 4runner model number, 25470 is tacoma. I do believe they are slightly different but if the fitment guide says it'll fit your model, it most likely does

    Interesting. Been reading up on them and like the idea of using the oem bushing. Do you know if running the TRD Pro wheels with 285/70/17 KO2s would clear the JBA UCA?

    Not sure but I think running 285's on any of our OEM Wheels would require some type of spacer. Somebody else might chime in on this as I could be wrong. But I think the people on TacomaWorld always say they needed spacers for the clearance.

    Been reading that you need 1.25" spacer on the oem wheels. Been looking at spidertrax. I am going to put the UCAs on and if the tires rub, I will put the spacers on.

    Spacers are sketchy if you're doing any kind of off-roading..

    spidertrax are the way to go, make sure to use loctite and torque them correctly and you won't have an issue

    if they're cheap metal/studs or installed wrong, absolutely, but many have run them and used them hard for many miles without incident. i had them for about 15k before getting new wheels and they were flawless, on road, off road, towing, etc

    Sketchy regardless. I hear you though, but Ive seen bad things happen with spacers even when installed correctly. Not on my truck no way no how. Cost of wheels far outweighs the chance of failure on road or trail for me.

    With 285's you'll have rubbing and have to modify wheelwell and remove the mudflaps. I run 265/70/17 with spidertraxx spacers and still rubbed with 3/2 lift. Good now after removing the mudflaps and pushing the front wheelwell forward. No cutting.
