looking for 6" lift advice

just got my truck about a month ago, not too sure on what a good lift technically is yet. i've been looking around and all i can honestly come up with is a pro comp or the fabtech. but i don't like the way the diff is dropped so low in the front..

is there any other types of lifts i can use with out dropping the diff so damn low?

not sure, but i saw something about spindle lift's or long travel lifts..something along those lines, however i have no clue what that is
and it would make it so i don't have to drop the diff so low ( not sure if that's true or not)

i just hate the way that looks, hoping there is a way to get around it

im assuming you are 4wd?? If so, thatg is the only thing you can do, but you can crank the coils so it will raise the diff and the front of your taco

^^ you can adjust the height of the truck by basically stretching and shrinking the size of the coilovers in the front thats what cranking the coils is

yea i'm starting to think that there is no way around it, because increasing the length of the coil overs would just stress the cv boots wouldn't it?

i honestly cant answer that question but from what ive heard (and this also being super briefly) that if you lift a truck and keep the stock UCAs i heard the cv boots rip super fast and its highly recommended to upgrade the UCAs for a smoother ride, cuz i just have a 2.5" spacer in the front with 33s and a stock rear and my stearing wheel is constantly vibrating and shaking, i heard with new UCAs that goes away and its a much better ride, but not completely sure, someone on here will fill you in forsure

so maybe some aftermarket UCA's could match with some long travel shocks or something?? no clue. but i hope you're right about me getting filled in :P

You can lift your truck up to 8" with no cv problems. If you choose the coilovers in the front, then you can adjust the height of the front. Wich will give you more groundclearence. Spindles are. Fro 2wd only, and long travel is VERY expesive. It is longer uca and lca's and it requires fiberglass fenders and a. Huge list of stuff

Pro comp, icon and fabtech sell 6" coilovers, but you have to use them with their drop bracket kits, you can't just use the coilovers you can adjust the front from 6 to like 8.5 I'm guessing or you can buy the pro comp STAGE 2 lmift that already has cloilovers
