6" Procomp Lift

I am looking at buying the 6" Procomp lift. where is the best place to buy the lift. I have been looking at 4wheelonline.com and to get the wheels and tires 35" tires and the lift will be around 3500.00 They might discount it if I buy it as a package deal.

i had 4 wheel parts lift mine. Be careful of the tires you select. I originally put the 35/12.50r17 ProComp Extreme A/T. These tires are larger than almost ANY other 35" tire due the the carcass. Rubbed like hell. I ended up putting the BFG Mud Terrains, and they didn't rub near as bad. When I buy my next set, i will probably go to the Goodyear M/T b/c their 35 is actually right at a 34" tire and will probably clear fine. The Stage II also rides substantially better than the Stage I (they swapped to the Stage II to try to get a little more lift to get rid of the rubbing. It helped, but they syill rubbed, especially in reverse. You can see pic's of my truck in the gallery area (Texastaco). I am actually upsizing to a Tundra tomorrow for work purposes, but have done a ton of work to my Taco and am happy to answer any questions. Also, I am averaging right at 15 MPH with the 35's and the truck is a dog off the line. You may consider changing the gear ratios to get a little more umph, but then you will also lose more mileage. Good luck!!

Buy all the tundras you can, lol. I work for Toyota Motor Manufacturing and we build the Tundra engines. I really want to stay around a 33" but there is no lift for a Tacoma to do that. I can find a 35" that measure 35, or smaller I am sure. I will keep everyone posted.

You NEED a tire NO BIGGER than 34" or it will rub....especially in reverse or if you go Stage I!! I am actually running 305/65r17 Extreme M/T's right now. If you want to see pics of it, let me know and I'll send them to you. I am literally on my way to Tejas Toyota in Humble to do the trade.

Gears after lift

I am putting a 6 in lift and 35 inch tires on my truck. Will I also need to change my gears while I am at it?

I don't think you really need to change the gears unless you are going to be doin some serious wheeling! If you are and do change the gear, count on some really, really bad gas mileage. i was getting about 15 mpg after the modification.

My 6" and 35 " tires are installed and I have put about 1,000 miles on it. I also put a k & n cold air intake system on it as well to help out, and I m talking with TRD about a supercharger. I would like more power but it is not that bad. I love it, and it turns many heads. I have pics up in my other thread.

Shop around. I was able to pick everything up from 4 wheel parts. They will match or beat anyone elses price.
