Me too.Is there a marked performance difference going from 265’s to 285’s? I was going to make the change today, but I’m somewhat concerned about losing power. I ordered 285/75R16 KO’s.
@blan09 did you end up making the switch from 265/75 to 285/75? I am at 275/70 now and was considering to going to one of these tire sizes on stock suspension. No lift.Is there a marked performance difference going from 265’s to 285’s? I was going to make the change today, but I’m somewhat concerned about losing power. I ordered 285/75R16 KO’s.
What is that sweet bumper you have? ThanksTire size is easy. 33's because the spare fits in the stock location and you don't have to re-gear.
Lift is highly debatable, but up to three inches and you don't jack up the geometry too bad.
The caster is easy to adjust for, as is the rear panard with bolt on bits. Nothing custom made is required, i.e the parts are available through several vendors.
Don't need to worry about drive line vibs, or adjustable control arms it the rear.
I went the Delta VS Treat Yourself Kit route. Dave had everything kitted up and ready to go.
I supplied rear bump stop extensions (2"sqr tubing from Online Metals) and rear sway bar extensions (Manafre).
Mine is a DD that's used for camping and playing.
I see a lot of comments in here…
When bumper manufactures say it holds a 37”
It not for fun, that’s just minimum man size.
Spacers aka 2” lifts are mainly for Tacoma’s and lady cruisers.
K02’s come standard with an overland membership and your kids power wheels.
There’s a suspension thread for men and the man curious.
Happy muding, tread accordingly.
There’s also a “what’s the best 32” tyre for rock crawling thread” but that’s mainly for profiling purposes and the Yaris crowd.
