just from my experience with being on the trail with DB equipped taco's...there is no ground clearance in the front! the drop bracket gets hung up on rocks or whatever..then they have to get strapped or pulled out with a winch slowing the progression of the whole trip on the trail.



i have taking my taco to the limit and beyond, and now paying for it.. from cracks in the frame, cracks in cross members, cracks in wheels, broken rear ends, smashed exhaust and drive shafts... etc ect ect... all due to the fact that i wanted to do the more extreme trails, i should have bought a rockcrawler from the very beginning!..


not a single DB lift that is able to take this line!



no DB lifted truck will be able to get through here without getting hung up!


wont be able to make this section either with out a strap!


look at all that ground clearance, LOOK AT IT!..... don't be jealous!


Apples and oranges comparison here. 2WD's like yours have more ground clearance then 4WD's without a doubt. A DB lifted on 35's is pretty equal to a 3" lift on 33's as far as front ground clearance goes. Check out white2010taco's truck. That has a ton of clearance. If only there was a way to engineer 4WD's CV's and drivetrain so that they could achieve just as much clearance.

Monkeyproof's truck is 4WD LT.

Thank you for the clarification N0rth. With that much clearance in the front, my eyes fooled me thinking it had to be a 2WD. I was told from Wheelers Offroad to stay away from Long Travel for doing any kind of serious offroad like Monkeyproof is doing. That LT is just meant for desert racing applications.

Monkeyproof, how does your truck handle compared to other Tacomas with 3" mid-travel shocks that most members would suggest having on these rock climbing trails?
