I ran Cooper STs for about 8yrs & 140K miles, with a very similar lift, and never had a rubbing issue, even with mild offroading.
I cannot comment on tire chains though - but the Cooper's were severe weather rated, if that helps.
you know my truck set up with skinny tires so, would the tires rub my a-arms or should I just measure my existing set up and see if I have enough clearance - i may have just answered my own question :idea:
still what are your thoughts?
I had Autozone turn off the CEL and it hasn't come back on after several tanks of fuel.
I will clean the MAF this weekend as it's never been done....
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the CEL stays off since CATS are expensive!
When it comes on again, I'll change out the O2 sensors...
A few days ago my CEL came on. Took it to Autozone and got the code, but not specific on the solution or problem.
153K well maintained miles.
AND today I was slowing down to turn off the highway and my truck stalled, I pulled over and after a few attempts and with the accellerator depressed it...

I have had my '01 Double Cab 4x4 TRD since new and have 150K on it.
Be sure the timing belt & water pump have been changed on anything with over 90K miles - if not, then that is a point to bargain with. (get a manual, basic tools, look around here and do it yourself, about a :banana::banana...
Ditch the cobbled together coil spring spacers ASAP!
I built mine after seeing Cornfed spacers - just shop around a little for some manufactured ones, you'll be happy and they're pretty inexpensive.
AND keep us posted with the other mods!
Shop was NOT able to get it un-stuck, so now it's up to me to work on it! :mad:
Oh, well I get more time in the garage - now that it is 100F with the heat index!
maybe some :beer: will help me work thru this?:hillbilly:
Thanks for the suggestion I had already sprayed it for 2 days.
It is really seized - my friend owns the shop I'm taking it to so I know they'll take care of it. Also they specialize in tractor trailers and farm machinery - so I KNOW they can get things un-stuck! :D
BTW - I also noticed that...
