For the newbs, (of which i pretty much am one), If you have a 05+ Taco, all you need to clear 34x10.5's is a 2" lift and to add alittle material to the steering stops. You dont have to trim a thing. Just an FYI

He said he was adding to the steering stops.

For a street truck, that might be OK. All you have to do is limit the steering angle to the point that it doesn't rub.

For a trial rig, however, that's going to cause a whole set of new problems.

It's been done before.

There's an old C&W song that goes "Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around".

While that might be OK for an 18 wheeler, It's not going to get it for our off road trucks.

Did you measure your "34's"? There are MANY reports of the LTB's running quite small. GREAT offroad tire regardless.

I'm assuming you are unfortunate enough to drive them on the street too ... I didn't realize how spoiled we had become by radial tires til I got a set of bias TSL's...

Tire rub

On my '06 Tacoma, I'm running a 3" Revtek lift with 285/75R16 BFG AT and I had to trim the plastic front fender liners and cut back the fender flares a little, on an angle.

The lift doesnt do a thing for tire clearance... and I think I'll keep my turning radius.

So what is your turning radius now by adding material to the stops?
Please post of pic of your tire turned in...I am very curious
I am running 285's like a ton of people and like them I have removed the mudflaps, trimmed the inner part of the fender and still need to do this:

That is a link to what Angry Andy did to his Cruiser-it will work on a Taco

Do any tight trails?

Just turning my 2001 Tacoma, I wish it had a tighter circle since it's a ex cab...
