Sorry man I have to ask, why buy the most expensive mid size truck and look for cheap ways to mod it?

Xrunner coils will work
You could buy spacer kit for about 1-1.5 inch drop in front and buy 2 inch blocks out back this would be the cheapest
Or you could purchase xii 1.7 inch drop coil for the front which will stiffin the ride a little more

More expensive route is djm 3/4 or 3/3 kit

Also getting a header from LCE with a Magnaflow cat back system and deleting the 2nd cat. I hope this makes the new 2013 Tacoma gutless 2.7L w/ a manual truck move. The truck stock sucks big time. If I could have test drove the truck I would have found something else. I live in what Toyota calls the Denver region and Toyota doesn't believes that owners will buy a stick / manual trans. Automatic transmissions are for owners who can't push in a clutch, and from the owners I see buying trucks Toyota might be right. Learn to turn off your F-ing phone and drive!

Upgrading gears is a must for those tires

I have 255/50/19 which is same height you planning to run on stock gears haha I'm stretching them for days when I shift haha would be even worse if u had an automatic

But I'm downsizing anyways to stock height tires since I'm lowering my truck

Well the height im dropping now way my current tires would fit so stock height tires will be needed
Even if I were lowering it only a little I wouldn't.personally run as big as a tire I have but somewhere in the middle between the stock size and what I have
I hate the fact of how much wheel gap came on the 2nd gens:P
There's two solutions:
1. Small drop tall tires
2. Slammed till fender meets the tire haha
