    Looking for reviews from anyone who has a ReadyLIFT 3/2 set up, specifically on tire size recommendations. I would like to consider 34" tall, how much work is involved with "trimming modifications", as indicated by ReadLIFT's site below for 35".

    I have that kit installed. I had the bumper replaced so I can't say how much trimming of the front is required. That said, I'm running 35x12.50r18 with 0 offset & get fender liner rub on turns when I hit dips or driveways. I had to trim the side steps in front & hammer the pinch weld flat. For city use, it looks great but don't use it off road if you are going to do much articulation. Considering we can't really get locking axles it's no big deal for me. If you want to do snow chains stick with 33s. This is a 275/60r20 on stock wheels. 275/70r18 on xlt or 33x10.5
    Just my 2 cents after running around with the 35s. I don't regret them but I want to be able to hit the dips a little faster.

    I finally found a shop willing to trim the inner fender. It cost me a couple hundred dollars but now I can run chains. I ran 0 offset wheels because I wanted to make sure I wasn't hitting any suspension components other critical components like brake lines. Here's a pic of what they did.
    Inner liner - cut. Don't remove because wire looms are attached to it.
    Side step - cut
    Inner fender - pinch weld was cut off, welded then sealer applied. Driver side is partially done, passenger side has been cut & sealed.
    This should prevent the rubbing I experience on dips while turning.

    2013 El limited with raptor factory take offs no mods no problem! Much stiffer ride due to the new angle of control arms but worthwhile!

    There is NO E-Locker on the 3rd Gen at all, Front or Rear. Mechanical LS can be had in the Rear, and the Traction Control does some fun stuff with the brakes to increase traction to the wheels with grip.

    4th Gen(18+) have the option of an E-Locker in the rear.

    Again, All the front Diffs are Open, no locker or LS.

    I have the RL front spacers and run 305/55/20 (33") on +1 offset wheels. I had to remove the power running boards front "cover". That's about it. The tires rub on the wheel well liner a bit on hard turns.

    I'm running toyo open country 35 on 17x8.5 method wheels. Needed slight trip on front bumper lip. Si minor u don't notice its trimmed. Very easy to trim as its plastic being part of the bumper clip.
