New to Forum so may have been asked before, but how much lift would be needed to clear this size tire/wheel combo on a 2WD? Can I get by with a level kit/spacer? Thanks in advance.

You won't get close with just a leveling kit and spacer! Biggest size that's been proven to fit without modifying the vehicle beyond a mild lift and reshaping the fender liners is 33" and even then there has been an occasional need to trim fenders.. To fit these 35s you'll need a body lift and do some body work.

You'll need wheels with different backspacing to allow the wider tires to not rub the frame. You will also need a body lift and suspension lift or titan swap and probably some trimming as well. I would say a 5" total lift with a little trimming. 35's are 35's, they don't come cheap on an X. 2wd might be different, but you still have to clear the frame and the fenders.

The Combination of body lift and suspension lift is what you need. But 33's dont look bad at all on these rigs. welcome to the forum bro :wave:

Thanks for all the info guys. I think 33's will be more than enough for my use. I was looking around last night and saw another 2wd X that is exactly what I'm after with mine. Prerunner style. Will mostly stay on road, for now;).

As far as the Titan swap, do most guys go with the PRG setup or OE Titan parts?
