Input on lift setup

Hey guys getting ready to purchase a 2013 MGM DCSB Taco and lifting it right away. looking to get 8" total. If you have something negative to say, just keep it to yourself dont need to here it. Anyways this is what I was thinking:

-This is going to be for light wheelin and DD, nothing crazy

-Procomp stage 1 6" lift
-Icon Coilovers ( assuming i can get 1.5 of adjustment )
-Alcan rear leafs (8")
-Light racing UCA's
-Beefed Taco's CB Drop
-Rear Bilsteins (assuming 12" of travel)
-Ubolt flip kit

wheels im either going with black soft 8 craggars or procomp 7032 series in a 17" wheel

tires im leaning towards goodyear Duratrac's 35 12.50 17 ( had them on my last truck and had no issues, looked/performed good in all weather.

If anyone has a suggestions or input that would be great. here are some of the places i was going to order from

rear shocks- https://www.allprooffroad.com/store/...15wy96fc507790

UCA's- http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/sptacoarms.htm

u-bolt flip - https://www.allprooffroad.com/05taco...sion/05flipkit

Icons's - http://www.socalsupertrucks.com/icon...oilover-s.aspx

wheels - http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Se...n=PXA7032-7983


If anything seems wrong please let me know

For shocks (front and rear) try DownSouth Motorsports
For LR UCAs, HeadStrong Off-Road
Ubolt flip, why bother and just get longer Ubolts (Toytec or HeadStrong)
For wheels hit the local guys up first and get the lowest possible price, then try out the big boys. Ebay is also a good place to look as well.

Best of luck

Would those Icons get me to were I would want to be? 7.5 - 7.75 of lift in the front? If not is there another set of coilovers I could go with that I could get that extra lift out of?

as for Pro Comp......send this guy a PM

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/new...lack-taco.html

hes had a few issues with the stage 1

even after upgrading, I think he said he was bottoming out the rear shocks before hit touched the bumpstops, and caused him to blow a shock.

front end was squeaking due to the spring making contact with the sway bar...the mech adjusted the sway bar for as much as possible...might have to swap the spring around if we need more clearance...
