Browse around the suspension section. You can probably get some ideas there. There are a lot of options, depends on how much you want to spend.

I've browsed the suspension section and there is so much info and options that it's a little confusing. (not at all a gear head here). I liked a project I saw that had Bilden shocks and spacers on the wheels which gave the tires a nice footprint. I'd like to keep my budget under $1000 installed. Any ideas ?

No way you can install one yourself? Or get ahold of the other NJ guys to help you out? There are plenty of kits to choose from bud. It all depends on what you want to do. Are you going to be off roading a lot? Are you going to be doing mall crawling? Do you want your suspension to ride better than it used to or the same? Do you just want a lift and don't care?

I have someone that will do the install if I need them but the advice I've been getting is to try it myself. Won't be doing any off roading here in jersey, mostly interested in looks. I'm happy with the stock ride now, but if I can improve that while getting the look I want I'm all for it.

advise on tacoma lift kit

i used bilstein 5100(.85-fr.) at all corners and tsb rear.the truck is a lot more "sporty" to drive and not harsh,front or rear.the .85 setting put me higher than i expected and i had to check and make sure the spring perches were installed correctly(they are)...i'm pleased with the ride,the 5100's combined with the "tsb" really planted the rear of the truck...very pleased with that!i got mine from (downsouth motorsports)for 299.00,they sent me exactly what i needed with on time shipping(toytec dropped the ball on my order,so i had to cancel..and their price was higher) i've seen that "allpro" has a new bilstein coilover assembly(adjustable..looks sweet)i probably would've got that had i know about it.

I installed the Icon Stage 3 suspension on my 2010 Tacoma and it works great. Not cheap, but great quality and handling. Icon makes good stuff, but their customer service could use some improvement.

If your budget is $1000 installed, 5100s is your best bet. Especially if you are going just for looks
