Power is greater than suspension articulation!

Depends if you're trying to kill your truck on the road or off the road.

Heres a couple of clues. Omaha Nebraska, and his picks were taken in the driveway's. Not in an off road setting.
Already did the wheels and tires by the looks of it. Maybe 20" ers on there already? or are they 18" ers?

With ~5k you could look around and get the Supercharger for ~3-4k use your google fu! Do the install yourself and save a few $$$$. Or ask your dealer if they price match and work your install labor into the overall purchase.

Either way, you should have ~1k left over and can put that towards an ok lift for now, next time you have an itch to upgrade the suspension, you will have a few parts to sell and get money from.

You already have a 2" lift... And you were looking for power out of an exhaust back in June. I think this is a no brainer decision.

You have a 2011 so the URD might be a no go... http://www.urdusa.com/p1260518946/UR...duct_info.html

The TRD is still a great bolt on solution plus the additional warranty from Toyota it carries.
The rims are 17"...and ya omaha is ridiculously flat the only thing you can really do is trails or mudding/snow...so I'm not really in need for the extreme off road lifts right now...if i lived back home in Vegas id def go LT.

i wish i could go LT..but after reading some threads in the LT section..looks like things break here n there and I'm not mechanically inclined enough to do it myself...so always taking it to a shop would be a pain.

no wheeling= supercharger.

Just my 2
Spend 3K on a lift (3-4" lift not a 6") & 5k on the SC.
Get the lockers, 33 & power will out climb 35's and a stock any day.
Get it so you can lock in 4 hi back & front if you can. Do the anytime locker for the rear and if you have a grand do the front. Lift it 3" -4" some beefy tires & a S/C. Rock and roll!!!!!!!!!!
People will tell you put in low, if you are crawling low works with that said more power still helps.
I'v been in 400hp 400 ft lbs torque trucks with 33's on mud hills that passed trucks in low with 44's sliding backward.
Thats my 2

Just for grins a few pix. On flat ground the GMC with 44's in mud will leave ruts a tacoma cant get over. On a wet or dry steper hills the stock GMC with gears cant do what power can.

Do you want to wheel? Because if you do, spend 5k on sliders, tires, lockers, bumpers, and a winch and you would be very very capable.
