Best lift kit for 2011

Looking for some input on the best lift kit for my 2011 Tacoma TRD Off Road double cab. My front tires come up and hit my wheel wells when going through and kind of substantial ruts or even potholes and I'm tired of hearing it. Talking to the dealership I can have up to 4" of lift and still keep it under warranty but I was looking at around 2-3". Any advice?

ah, dont let them tell you that 4" wont void your warranty. my dealership told me that "if the lift causes any part to wear, or go bad because of the lift, then it voids the warranty for that part." im still gonna get one though.

best lift kit? A fully independent kit from King or Fabtech. Lift you truck about 7'' and you will have wheel travel taller than you. That is if you have $3500 to spend...

fabtech and king are two totally different types of suspension products.

King = top notch coilovers, shocks

Fabtech = 6" lift kit...


the only real way to get more travel is to go LT or solid axle. a drop bracket lift or just getting coilovers wont do that.
