Lift options...

Hey guys, I have a 2013 double cab and was wondering which of these lift kits would you recommend:

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72


or


http://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=815F

With the above BDS kit in 6", not full coilover and if anyone has any experiences with either kit, how was it?

Thanks!

3" above is you want it for mild offroading and 6" for basically looks and larger tires.

I have the zone 4" which is the same thing as the bds. I also didn't get the kit with the coilovers. I went and added 5100's all around and also got the extended length brake lines. I think the kit is very well made and drives great. With me going with the bilsteins I can always adust them to get a lil more lift if I want and the 4" kit is actually 4.5. The only difference between the basic 4 and 6" kit is the rear blocks and in the front on the 6" kit they give you a spacer that goes between the top of the coil spring and top hat to give you the extra lift

Cool thanks for the input. Also, someone today suggested that I should get a Pro Comp kit. Any advice on those?

I have heard that kit doesn't give you the best ride. If you wanna go that route you would be better going with 5100's, ome 885 coils or ebiachs and getting either a new leaf pack for rear or adding the icon 3 leaf progressive pack. Just my opinion.

Thanks, I will look into this as well.

Since the front wheels will be further out, wouldn't it be possible to just add spacers to the rear wheels to have them go out further to match the fronts?
