Readylift lit kit or Leveling kit???

Hi guys, so I want to do a mod to my truck which includes larger tires and either a leveling kit or a readylift lift kit and I need some assistance. I am debating between the Readylift 69-5510
Toyota Tacoma 5-Lug SST Lift Kit, 2005-2011, 2WD - 2.75"F/1.75"R

http://www.readylift.com/c-107-toyot...-275f175r.aspx

or the

66-5055
Toyota Tacoma 2005-2011, 4WD & 2WD Prerunner - 2.25"

http://www.readylift.com/c-83-toyota...unner-225.aspx


I have an 06 Tacoma 5lug 2wd 4 banger manual. I am trying to see which would be best to invest in for my truck. I want to be able to do some basic offroading and put 31 tires on it. I dont want to lose a lot of power or give up alot of MPGS. Can anyone give me some suggestions?? I would greatly appreciate it.

I have the first one that you listed and it was a great improvement over the stock height. Just be sure to get longer shock absorbers for the rear; otherwise when you add the extra leaf the stock rear shock will be overextended on bumps.

Look into the fat bobs kit. It's cheaper and comes with a rear shock.

not sure how much bigger you can go with tires with under 3" of lift, you will need new rims or spacers and have to do some trimming i think

Does this kit include the rear shock absorbers being mentioned, or would those be an additional cost?

What is the max tire size you think I can fit with this kit- it says 31" but is that accurate?

Shocks are not included but I honestly doubt you need them. once it is installed you could measure to see what length you need and get them if you them. Shocks aren't too expensive. 31's should fit fine.

Thanks. I just had an unexpected cost come up though so looks like getting a kit right now is a no-go :/

I can still afford to get a set of tires though- do you think there is anyway a set of 30's would fit w/o mods? Or is the 235/75/15 the absolute max?

I've heard you can fit 245's. I put on 235's then a week later lifted it and now I want bigger tires. But I still think the 235's with an aggressive thread pattern looks really good. Check out my build

Thanks! It looks really nice. I decided I am going to go with 235/75/15 Wrangler Duratracs so they should look pretty mean.

Thanks! I was looking to stick with stock wheels so I went ahead and ordered the 235s awhile ago. They'll be in and on my truck by Friday. I will upload some pics after.

Got my tires installed on Friday, truck looks much better and ride is significantly nicer as well. Didn't have time to get some pics yet but will ASAP (camera needs batts).

Thanks for your suggestions!

I run 31x10.5x15 with fat bob's lift kit on stock rims. Yes it rubs at full lock, but if you don't do full lock, its fine and looks great IMHO
