Lifting 2013 Tacoma

I am looking to lift my 2013 Tacoma, 4cyl 4x4 and need a little advice. I am either going with a roughcountry 3in suspension with 265 75 R16 tires, or a 6in roughcounty with 285 75 R16 tires and cant seem to make up my mind. I am worried if i go with 285 75 tires, if my 4cyl can handle it. advice and pictures would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

A bit more info on uses for the truck would help us.

Towing? Hauling? Flexing? Offroading? Daily driver? Mall crawlin'?

Welcome to TW btw

Rough Country lifts do indeed suck. The I4 is already underpowered - you will not like those huge tires on it. You'll definitely need to re-gear.

You get what you pay for when it comes to lifts, or anything else for that matter.

The 4cyl can handle 285s just fine. You certainly won't have to regear unless you absolutely want to. I barely noticed a difference when I switched to 285's.. I wouldn't get a 6" if you want your truck to be drivable on the highway.. wind resistance from that height plus bigger tires will make it a pain in the ass at higher speeds.

Thanks for the advice felas. I am a big deer hunter, so it will be used off road a lot and also my everyday drive. I think I am going to make my mind up with a 3in suspension with aggressive a/t 265 75 tires.

Get an ome setup and some good 265's and you will be happy. Those that say you won't notice a lack of power with bigger tires must be driving flat roads at mild speeds. In those circumstances I agree with them but as soon as you have any type of inclines or higher speeds you notice them. I do and I have a v6
