3" not tall enough 6" a little to much... not sure!!!

* 06 tacoma trd dbl cab 4.0L * ( wanted one since i was 16 )

Fisrt off i love the truck more than i thought i could. drives amazing with lots of power from that 4.0 liter. the problem im having is deciding what to do about lifts. i want a little more that 3" (i think) but i dont have the money to do everything that a 6 " lift and 35's requires. so i guess my question would be is there a combonation of blocks coils and shocks that would give me 4" or a little more without spending 1000 $ on the lift. not a serious wheeling truck but will go in the woods from time time so needs to be pretty functionable..

looking to put beefy 33 x 12.50 on it with enough gap to look aggresive...any advice or examples of set ups would be so very appriciated!!!!!! thanks guys

RCD 4.5 inch lift. It's kinda right in the middle of 3 and 6.

Just keep saving money. The RCD lift is a drop bracket lift though so you will have hanging metal.

Stacking lifts to go over 2.5-3" will kill your suspension, and put you in danger of serious damage.

Just take your time and save up the $$ and do some research...im fairly certain if you read into db lifts you'll stay with the 3"

Go 3" and trim you could fit 35s. See what you want in person too. Could change your thoughts... Pictures look good but can be deceiving

Since you are 4x4 the only way to go over 3" of lift would be a drop bracket lift. As far as I know the only company to make a 4.5" lift is RCD. Drop bracket lifts require cutting crossmembers and lose ground clearance versus a 3" lift. You can run 33/12.5 tires with a 3" lift and some minor trimming.

i figured there was a reason so many people go with the three and the more i look the more it holds true... i have had a few jeeps that were 4" or more and had no drivetrain problems but i guess thats not this case with tacos... which is fine its the truck ive wanted for a long time. I dont want 35's anyways so i guess the question now is whats the best set up on the 3 " lift... factory feeling ride isnt the biggest concern.

You sir just asked the right question.

Take a look at the "Lift" link in my signature. Tons of good info there. You can build a quality 3" lift many different ways. It all depends on your budget.

How much are you willing to spend? I would check out the OME lift setups and look into getting new ucas as well. Stay away from blocks and spacers.

Just don't post asking how to get your mpg back up once you done the lift and tires, because you can't, it will tank.

OME 885, top spacers. OME shocks. AAL kit.

Best all purpose general set up. Throw in some UCAs and you're set.
