I would be happier doing stuff in a truck I built, instead of buying a truck that's already built.

Just did some light reading. Decent truck and really nice engine but the travel numbers are far less than I was expecting.

"Suspension upgrades include new upper and lower A-arms up front, retuned leaf springs in back and a set of race-quality Fox Racing Shox that combine to allow up to 11.2 inches of travel up front and 13.4 inches in back."

That kind of travel is possible on our rigs running Camburg coilovers, Camburg UCAs and Light Racing Jounce Shocks up front, and a set of Deaver leaf packs with appropriate shocks out back.

Regarding full long travel, with my setup I should get about 14.5" up front and about 18" of travel in the rear.


Note that I've owned 7 Fords and daily drive a diesel super duty these days while I'm building the Tacoma. I'm not bashing another brand -- just commenting on the numbers.

Well I know rcd makes a good 4 inch lift.... But if it's travel u want don't get a drop down bracket lift go with 4" spindles and adjustable coilover if u wanna spend the money.... King or fox coilovers are nice.... I just ordered the camburg 4" spindle can't wait to install it....

Picture for reference. These are the Glassworks fenders and bedsides with a spring-under conversion in the rear and mid-travel up front.


Here's a full-droop test fit of the Camburg LT kit I'm in the middle of installing.

The long travel is a full kit that includes what you see here:

Without coilovers the kit retails for around $2900.

EDIT: The 4x4 axles shown in the above picture are another five or six hundred.
