Options for more Clearance

2008 Tacoma Double Cab
TRD Off Road Package, V6 with new King 2.0's and Goodyear MTRs

I am really enjoying my King 2.0s, but now starting to regret getting them before considering a LT kit. I'm getting some rub whenever I get more than a couple feet in the air and was looking for more clearance. I think the post about LT Kits is perfectly meant for me; not a wrencher or experienced, just wanting to get some air!

I only need a couple more inches, but the guys at my local shop said I can't extend the Kings any further because I don't have enough travel. I don't think I'll consider going LT, but I was wondering if I even can with the 2.0s or if I would need new shocks.

My buddy suggested a body lift, but I know that can be its own ball of wax.. Would you have any recommendations to allow for more air with minimal mods? I use it as a Daily Driver too, so I'm trying to find that balance of a reliable vehicle that I can go smash on the weekends. Should I just man up and get the body lift, or is that not really going to solve my issue?

Appreciate the advice fellas,
-Steven

A body lift will do nothing for you at all.

Sounds like to me you should post this in the LT section. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/lon...el-suspension/
