Talking iShock 3" Lift

So on September 21 (today) I should be getting my 3" iShock lift kit. I have a 2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road double cab. So I'll be replacing the front shocks with the iShock P51 2.0 Extended Travel, nitrogen charged, internal reservoir (IFP), complete coilovers, and the rear shocks with iShock T6 2.0 Extended Travel, nitrogen charged. Stock upper control arm will be replaces with a Tig Welded Chromoly Upper Control Arms 1.25”. To lift the back the kit comes with 1” lift blocks with U-Bolts. I still need to find some rims and tires but thats a big chunk of money. Haven't decided yet on the rims or tires. Size I think I'll be going with 16 or 17 on the rims and 33's on the tires. Hopefully I can find a good deal online or at a shop here in San Diego for the rims and tires. I'll post pictures of the truck before and after I lift it and of course a review of the shocks after I take it on dirt.

Why don't you keep the stock rims?

Also, the kit looks great, except for stupid blocks in the rear? That makes no sense. Everything else is great quality and then lift blocks in the rear

Personally, I would find longer shackles, get a AAL, or do the rear leaf TSB... It will provide a better ride and no stupid blocks needed.

Getting longer Shcakles on a 2nd Gen Lower the rear. Inverted

But I do agree, a 3 Leaf AAL would probably be your best bet.

Thank you for the suggestion guys, I should have some Procomp AALs from a leveling kit I bought for my old 06 Tacoma I had. I'll keep it in mind and hopefully I can find them if not ill just probably install the blocks. I already received my kit . Should be opening it tomorrow night after work. I'll try to post some pictures of the shocks and UCAs.

Hey Michael I still need to find some wheels and tires but if I don't find something soon I'm just gonna lift it and leave the stock wheels and tires for now. I should update this thread pretty soon... Trust me, I also want to see my truck with this lift

Alright so here are a few pictures of the truck without the wheels and tires. I'm uploading them from my phone but its not letting me do me do more than one at a time. I'll post more pictures once I get the wheels and tires and write a review of the kit once I test it.

Looks good. I'd ditch that front diff drop though, it's useless.

What size tires did you end up getting? I was the first to run this kit and I'm loving it!
