Depending on your rim size. 16"=265-75-16. 17"=265-70-17. If you do a 2" lift you can go bigger. Since you are keeping it as daily driver the spacer lift is alright, but if you do serious off-roading then you should look into coilovers. You will need a 4wd diff drop it usually comes with the lift. The spacer lifts will make the ride stiffer, while the coilovers will retain the stock ride quality. Both are great products just depends on how you drive. The biggest difference you'll notice is when you put bigger tires, like say a 285, 295, or bigger.

Stock height 265-75-16 tallest without issues. 2.5" lift in front you can go bigger but you need new rims with different backspacing. The 285's and larger tires on the stock rims will only work with spacers/adapters (they rub on UCA). If you do add the lift you are in luck though, since you have 16's you can get 255-85-16 and they won't rub on the UCA. That is a 33" tall tire. BFG makes it in Mud-Terrain.

With your lift you can go:

265-70-17 31"
275-70-17 32"

You can go 285-70-17 or 295-70-17, but you will need wheel adapters/spacers to clear the UCA.

285-70-17 32.5"
295-70-17 33"

^ Well if you are going to keep the stock rims then you will need them. Try these places:

Spidertrax (They are sold out currently just keep checking back with them)
*They are lug centric and hub centric so install is easier.
Hub Centric (Late Model)


Marlin Crawler (They are lug centric not hubcentric)
*They work fine just have to install carefully and tighten carefully.

Here's a shot of my '05 with a fatbobsgarage 2"/3" lift leveling kit and 285/75/16 bfg all terrains. I tried 34"s but they rubbed all over the place. The 33"s fit like a glove, no rubbing.

hey fishin101

Hey fishin101, I'm looking at buying a 2006 crew cab tundra....On that FatBobsGarage kit, I was looking at them on eBay and they get a good price on them but did you use a t-case drop on yours or did you just bolt the spacers and ADL's on and roll? I wanna get around 3" on this one if I buy it, big enough to run 33"s hopefully. No hardcore wheeling, it'll be a daily driver truck and wont see alot of offroad use other than on hunting trips and then it still wont be anything to nasty.
