Has anyone every installed this lift on their Taco?

I am new to lift kits and really dont know what I am looking for. I dont go mudding or hit the trails very often and when I do it is nothing extreme. I am just looking to level out my front and at the same time be able to run 285/75/r16. Is it possible with this lift and is this lift any good. Any help will be great.

It's a spacer lift. Not well thought of around here.

I am not looking to drop a whole bunch of money into this simply because I dont go offroading hardly any (and i realize that when dealing with lifts there is no such thing as cheap). I just want something to make the truck level and be able to run a size bigger tire.

You can get Bilstein 5100's and a add a leaf for just a little more and your ride will be much better over the spacer lift.

The adjustable struts in the front do look nicer. Will shackles do anything in the rear if you dont use a AAL. Thanks for the help JLee.

None of my links work, awesome!

Go with the links JLee provided. Be sure to purchase their new bushings for your front struts.

I did the lift and wasn't happy with the front being so low, I added Eibach coils for a full 3 inches of lift and was much happier.

3 in the front and 1 in the rear might leave you a tad nose high.

I went with 3 in the front 2 in the rear and that leveled me out

3 in front and 1 in back would leave your nose high. 3 in front and 2 in back would be probably level.
