Recently I was talking to my fathers friend, who works at a local tire shop, about lifting my truck. He told me if I get a 6" lift it will ruin my suspension and it will be a money pit with me constantly fixing the suspension. He also told me if I put 35's or 33's on my truck it will accelerate slow or "dog down," because its a 6 cylinder.
I bought my Tacoma almost a year ago, and have been saving like crazy to lift it, put a custom bumper on it equipped with a light bar.
So my questions are: How bad would a 6" lift mess up the suspension (I plan on keeping the truck for a minimum of 5 years), or is a smaller lift size recommended?
Will bigger tires make acceleration that much slower that it won’t be fun to drive anymore?
I have a 2006 Doublecab.
