Basic Lift

Hey all,
New to the forum and a new toyota owner.
I have a '11 tacoma dbl cab trd.

I'm in Calgary. Most of my driving is on the freeway to work (30kms each way)
Weekend are spent camping/fishing. Looking for something that will give me a little extra height. was thinking 2" but open to suggestions.
I tow a small jet boat and camper.

Thanks for any help

Welcome from BC Ryan

This thread is a good place to start http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sho...d.php?p=125823

I have a DCLB 4x4 , and haul materials , tools etc , I decided to go with the full OME lift with 885 coils and the Dakar leaf pack .

I have been quite happy with the results , it lifted me 2 1/2" front and rear

Thanks for the replies.
A few more questions....
I am not worried about towing weight, both the camper and boat are less than 3000lbs.

If I have a basic lift installed, do I need to mess around with any front end parts/shocks etc? Alignment would be required right?

With a 2" max lift, will I look like a fool leaving OEM wheels/tires on?

Any idea on a cost?

Thanks again

Suspension lifts actually replace the suspension components like coils , shocks etc with aftermarket ones to acheive the lift you desire .

At 2" you will be OK with the stock UCA's .

If you give us an idea of your budget , we could figure out some options for you

I don't want to spend anymore than $1500. I believe parts are 10-15% higher up here than the US

I paid right around that amount , taxes in , to get the full OME kit with Dakars locally in Canada .

You could go with 884 coils for a 2" lift , or 885's for a 2 1/2" lift

Dakars will get you approx 2 1/2" out back on a DC

OZ-T did you have any vibrations after you installed your lift? If so were you able to fix it?

I also went with the OME lift with 885 coils and Dakar's in the back. I love it and really recommend as well. Best deal I could get was from ARB Canada so if you decide to go this route I suggest getting a quote from them as well. Good luck.

I've got the same OME kit as OZ and have no vibrations at all. I did not install the differential drop but I did install the carrier bearing drop. I also have the top spacers to lift the truck 3". Hope that helps.
