Should I lift my 2013 TRD??

I plan on using it for mostly the road but would like to have the option to go off-road.

You'd be surprised how capable your stock truck can be offroad. I would check out Bilstein 5100s from Downsouth Motorsports or Wheeler's Offroad. They are a good shock that won't break the bank. That paired with a simple Add a leaf will do you just great on and off the road.

That being said, I have a stock truck now and have had full suspension kits on my last Tacoma. My stock truck gets me everywhere I need to go in 4x4.

Ahhhh ya! LOL

Just don't get shitty spacers no matter what anyone says about "great on road ride" or "get the look of an offroad truck without the expense" it's all BS and they ride like shit and will eventually break parts!

Even if its 5100's up front to level it out, get good shocks (or coilovers) and do it right the first time!

What is the biggest benefit for a lift? Other then looks.

Room for bigger tires. If you have extended travel shocks you get more travel..Increased performance in rough terrain, etc.

That's all if you have a good lift, not spacers.
