Question Mid travel suggestions please

So im looking into mid travel since LT is just too much $$ for me, I wanna get c/o's that get me up to 3.5" lift in the front since im gonna have 3" leaf pack in the back. I was looking at fox and kings but from my understanding they only give 2.5" lift. Gonna get TC UCA too. thanks guys

Fox/icon/king's all provide 0-3" of lift. It isn't recommended to go higher than that. However since your truck is a prerunner you can install 4" spindles to achieve your desired height. There is plenty of deals to be had for used coil overs if you wanna go that route and get them rebuilt or you can buy new. Either way I'd talk to the guys at Downsouth Motorsports they'll hook it up

Resi's will only play a part if you plan on mobbing for an extended period of time. Resi's purpose is to hold more oil so it doesn't heat up as fast thus preventing shock fade for a little longer. As for King/Fox/Icon, all of them will outperform your Billies. If your buying used I'd say whatever you get a good deal on. If youre buying new I'd buy the best I can and buy Kings but I'm a little partial. All three manufactures are top notch though you won't be disappointed with any of them. If you want to do some more research there's some decent info in http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...coilovers.html here.
