I'm planning on buying a long box V6 4 door 2010 or 2011 taco in the next couple months and looking for advice on suspension mods for heavy loads as well as a lift. I'll probably install a sled deck on it for my ATV and my sled (something like the attached pic).
Iíd like to add a 2 inch lift (Standard OME complete kit, OMETAC05LK on the ARB site but Iím open to suggestions) and add the biggest tires that would fit. Would a rear suspension airbag system work with that kit since it provides 2Ē of lift? Iíll be hauling over 1000 lbs at time but mostly a couple hundred pounds which is why I would like to keep a cushy suspension and just add air in the airbags when I have my sled or ATV in the back.
Also, any advice on the taco package I should be looking for (base, SR5 or TRD). I donít care about the bells and whistles. I will be doing a bit of off-road but from what I have researched, if I do the above-mentioned mods, there is nothing else the SR5 or TRD can offer as far as off-road performance. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks for any help
