I've got a '97 T100 also. And you're right aftermarket support is poor, so building something similar to the 4Runners and Tacomas you see here is difficult if not impossible. On the other hand you can build something original and different than everyone else.

I use my truck for getting far off the beaten path, camping, exploring new (to me) areas on some mildly technical trails. Not trails like you would take a rock crawlin' buggy on but then a rock crawlin' buggy can't travel in comfort for as long as I can either. It's a good mix.

Here's a list of what I've got and what I've done to it -

Make: Toyota
Model: T100 4x4 Xtra Cab SR5, all power options w/ Sport Seats
Year: 1997

Engine: 3.4ltr V6
Trans: Automatic
T-Case: Stock, manual shift lever
Front Axle: IFS, 4.30 gears, ADD
Rear Axle: Toyota 8", 4.30 gears (stock)
Tires: 285/75/16 BFG All Terrain KO's
Wheels: 16x7 Toyota alloys

Rancho 9000 Adjustable Shocks w/ in cab controls
Rancho Steering Stabilizer
Lo-Profile Bumpstops
ScanGuage II OBD reader
Air Lift Load Controller II Airbags - rear
Magnaflow Muffler
Magnaflow Hi-Flo Cat

A few years ago, I built a sleeping and storage deck in the bed of the truck for camping trips and long trips way from home -

That was an easy & cheap solution for having a place to camp out of the weather and off the ground. But it was cramped and cold. I got tired of feeling like I was sleeping in a coffin, not being able to get dressed in the mornings standing up and cooking outside on the tailgate when the weather was crappy.

So I pulled out the deck, took off the topper and replaced them with a Four Wheel Camper. The camper is light at around 700lbs., fits neatly to the side rails on the bed and has a legendary reputation with Turtle Expeditions who put a Four Wheel Camper (FWC) on a Ford and drove across Siberia. It is incredibly durable and can tolerate being bounced around off-road, unlike most slide-in campers. The camper is low profile when travelling and pops up in camp for a warm and comfortable place to cook and kick back at the end of the day.

My FWC is equipped with a queen size bed, 16,000 BTU heater, 2 burner stove, 12 gallon water tank, sink and fridge. I've had it in downpours with no leaks, high winds and it stayed up fine, on trails all over the Moab area, Death Valley, Colorado mountain passes and forgotten 2 tracks in Montana. I have no complaints.

Got a little pic-crazy, sorry. The T100's are great trucks, the unsung heros in Toyota's line up. They are extremely capable and reliable. You can build them up even better with a small amount of lift and good tires. There are tons of creature comforts you can add on as well. You just have to think outside the box a little as a T100 owner. Good luck -

Bagger,

Do you still have the topper?

As far as the original question, a set of Ball joint spacers in front and blocks (springs are recommended but $) in the rear will let you fit 33s with no rubbing, and you can get a lunch box locker for the rear axle. That will make it more than capable enough for your intended useage.

Klierslc The rears have the spring hangers and its possible to weld up longer hangers without negatively affecting the rear end geometry. The most that I would look for is 1-2" which is the same as blocks but they are a lot more solid. Also going to 33" he might want to look at gears.

I ran 305 MTRs on mine with no mods, I only suggest the lift to keep from rubbing. As far as gears go, I was pretty happy with the 305s. The MTRs were pretty light and I had AL wheels. If I towed much I would want gears, but for DD use I thought that the stock gears worked really well

On my T100 I have this:

Stock 3.4 Liter with moded air box and k&n air filter, 2.5 id exhaust with a flowmaster super 40 I believe it was.

Running gear: Stock automatic and transfer case, rear axle has 4.56 ratio with an l/s Front is also 4.56 ratio, stock independent with stock vacuum disconnect crap.

Brakes are running stock drums with ceramic laser etched pads and running drilled and slotted rotors up front with same type brake pads.

Suspension is 4 inch rancho lift with rancho shocks etc etc. with huge skid plate up front.

Tires I am running 33x12.50x15 Toyo m/t's running about 15 psi.

I use this truck for damn near almost everything. Towing, camping, dunes, mudding, crawling, wheeling in the snow etc etc.

Now I have gottin stuck 2 times in over an year. Got hunged up past the rocker panels in mud cause of the front independent lift bracket crap. 2nd time was up in 3ft or so of snow hanging off an edge cause I hit a patch of ice wheeling on a slope.

Anyways thats the route I kind of went with and I haven't really complained about it. Still which I just did a SAS in it. I do have full working/running 3/4 ton chevy gear that I could put in it but it's chevy lol I can't do it.
