A BFG 33" fits under the bed on Hilux and first gen Tacoma but I'm not sure it does or not on the second gen. My bet would be it does. If you stick with narrow section width it won't drag too bad. I had a 33x10.5x15 BFG MT KM2 under the bed on the Rubithon trip and it survived.

Thats what I was thinking. Also, the bumper will likely hit long before the tire has issues with the narrow wheel. Especially since he said he's not going to be crawling it over large boulders.

If you're willing to risk it, having the spare in the stock location is IMVHO actually a benefit since it acts like a cushion when you do drag and as long as you're in mild rocks and trees the chance of cutting the sidewall is a little lower. The upside is you put less shock through your bed and camper, so it lasts longer before starting to fatigue.

True. Though, with the new model Taco's, 4WC actually adds in some sort of bed support system as the plastic beds cannot handle the load.

You can definitely fit a 33" tire under the bed. There are a couple of angle brackets on the cab side that might need some modification or cutting if you go with a taller 33", or just let some air out of the tire so that the rubber flexes into place. A 255/85 makes it fit nice and flush.
