Get the BAJA if you want to keep it simple. You want to cook your own go with the pro comp. Mileage will probably be a lot worse with 33" and maybe sluggish. I got the baja and its great(obviously biased). As a daily driver, who needs the potential headaches of aftermarket suspension. I was all set to do trd offroad with a set of icons and then someone mentioned rebuilding shocks. I thought about waiting while shocks got rebuilt and cost to do it, and having no truck to drive. granted its in like 30k miles, but what a headache. Not to mention all the potential problems modding. Loaded taco is running winch, plate bumper, skids, and sliders and he lost .25 in front. Sounds like easy decision to me. Thats why I made it. FYI you should be able to nail down a dc baja pro without entune and WITH tow for like $33500 and one w entune for $35,500. Check Cars.com and autotrader for best prices and then take that to your local dealer to bargain. And go at the end of the month! FYI nothing is going to be perfect, pick your most important feature. Mine was reliability!

Fixed it for you. Seriously, the pre-modded trucks from dealers are a ripoff.

Better off buying a stock TRD Offroad, spend $2500 on the Icon stage 3T kit, and pay a local shop to install it all. You get better components than the Baja trim this way.

DO NOT pay $35k without tow pkg.. $34k is about right for one with tow pkg. and no tubes. I would say without the tow $33.5k.

So the vibe I'm getting is to install an aftermarket suspension after the warranty is up? I found a TRD Sport that is priced at 32,000. You guys think I could get the dealer around 29,000, or what tactics should I use? Thanks!

IMO 6" vs 3" just do what you want, everyone here is so biased you will go crazy trying find the right answer.

As far as the warranty- On my taco I have a 3" and it's good for what I want it for. Since 10k it's been lifted with no problems with the way I drive. Have 22k on it.

On my f150 it has 6" drop bracket and 35's since 15k, aside from replacing some worn steering arms around 85k and a few torn boots from brush I have had no problems until recently 120k with a leaking trans gasket.

I would rather lift when I have the warranty that way in case something catastrophic happens I would have the chance to return it to stock and get the repairs covered by warranty.

If you decide to go the db lift route there are some nice ones out there to include the procomp. You can look at the rcd, zone, bds, fabtech etc. Just build the truck the way that you plan on using it. I have had several db lifts and never had any problems.

Def don't wait till your warranty is up to lift your truck. If you lift it when you get it new you can sell some of the stock parts off it to offset the cost of your new lift whichever way you decide to go 3 or 6".

$34,351 is what we got them down to. It has everything but the Ntune. I plan on installing my own HU and Speakers when I rack up the extra cash. Have oem running boards installed, and should have the truck next week! (Fingers crossed)

The dealer who told you your warranty would still be good with a 6in lift is lying to you!They might fix a suspension related problem once but after that they will nail you!!
