Hello all. New to the forum and also the Taco. I don't even have it yet. I have been scouring the earth for an 09 DC LB with less than 25K and a good price. Some out there but I haven't pulled the trigger yet, I have a dealer friend who has his buyers looking at auctions so it's just a matter of time.
Here's my deal, I want to do suspension right from the get go. I want to lift primarily for touring style road trips that involve a lot of off road driving. Sometimes towing a 3000 lb trailer, sometimes more. So I'm thinking I want about 2.5" straight suspension lift. My friends have always been pleased with OME and I think that's who I'll use. So, I want to level the ride for sure, but I don't want to do this if while towing it's going to look ridiculous or have the front end ride up. I want to be able to run bigger tires in the fall/winter, but probably run them a little taller than stock the rest of the year.
I am going to put an ARB on the front and mod it to accept a hitch receiver so I can keep my winch in the bed and use it on either end, so I have more weight in the front to consider but I guess it's not too much.
I want the truck to still ride well on pavement but be able to handle washboards and dirt roads well, get more clearance and more travel. What suspension components should I get?
Thanks for the help/advice.
