First Tacoma Lift Kit Advice

Just bought my first Tacoma. I have always had Jeeps so this is a whole new world for me. I have done some digging on here but no clear guidance on lift kits. somone help !!

Here is what I want.
-good ride on/off road
-2.5"-3" Or what ever clears 33's with no big trimming.
-NO SPACER CRAP
-quality products.
-everything needed for under $1100

I hear alot about the 5100s and AALs but I would love some specifics & pics would be great. thanks

i would get bilstein 5100s set at .85 with eibach springs, get some 33s on 8 inch rims, some trimming will be needed though, and get the toytec 1.5 or 2 inch AAL.

and is your 1100 budget with tires??

if not i would get a dakar 2 inch leaf pack, much better ride, and some bilstein 5125s for the rear

If your budget is $1100 for a lift I'd get a full OME Suspension Lift, extended brake lines in the rear, and a set of LR UCA's.

That's what I got and I love it.

OME. Skip the UCAs and get the Dakar leaf pack insted. You might not need new UCAs, I don't. 885s & Dakars gave me 3" lift front & rear. Rides great on & off road.
