Just purchased a 2013, 4D 4WD V6 Tacoma. I am ready to get started making this baby ready to ride off road. I have calling around to see a price on getting some suspension work as well as wheels and tires. The only place I know in the area that does off road vehicle work is 4wheelparts. They are very expensive for install, I was basically wondering if anyone had any other recommendations for shops near Indianapolis, IN, or if the job of putting a suspension kit on my brand new truck would be too much for me to handle with limited experience working on vehicle suspension. I have done quite a bit of work on street bikes as well as dirt bikes, just have never got into mods on any of my automobiles.
That being said, I am sure there is already a thread for suspension, but what would be a good recommendation for entry level suspension, I keep seeing everyone talk about Bilstein 5100s but i think i would prefer to have a 3'' lift and the Bilstiens look like they are 2.5'' at the max. I was looking at the pro comp 3" kit as well as the stage 1 Icon kit. But I am open to any ideas.
The wheels and tires i was looking to run 17" XD monsters and some 285 Nitto Trail Grapplers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
