Rough Country 3 inch Lift

Has any one out there ever installed or had any experience with the 05 thru 09 tacoma 3" rough country lift. I think its said it was a coil extender or something.

Its ok. I has a good hight. The rear is your standard lift to its fine. But the Front is real stiff. You will feel a lot of bumps on the road. Also i've seen pictures of guys snaping their stock trd shocks in half because the top mount spacers put alot of stress on the bottom of the shock. If you aren't planing on doing any hard off roading or jumping your truck you should be fine. I've done some light off roading and nothing happened. But I'm getting rid of the front stuff when i have enough cash for Fox 2.0. For the price of the lift i like it. and the instal is real easy and you don't need a coil compressor. I like the rear shocks it came with. Your truck won't bottom out as easy because they are stiffer and a lot wider then the stock ones.

I have a 17" Moto Metal Rim with 4.5 backspacing and i'm running a 285/75/17 tire. Its a 33" tall tire. You will have to do some triming in your front inner wheel well so they don't rub. I have Nitto Dune Grapplers that are made for sand and dirt. I bet if you got a MT tire you would have to trim more then i did. If you look at my pics you can see the hight its at and rim/tire i'm running.

Yeah, I'm the wrong person to be asking about Wheel offset. I don't know much about that stuff.

You're Welcome. And Yeah I got it before I was a part of this site. A lot of people on here like running the same thing because they will know it runs well and won't have any issues because their buddies have the same thing. All in all I'm happy with the lift.

I have it as well, front coil spacer 3", rear .25" aal, levels out pretty nicely, sets the front a tad bit higher than the back, but barely noticeable.

Rough as hell, speed bumps suck. Otherwise it does the job. Just keeping it cheap so I can get the 6" later.

I run 285/70/17s, 33" OD, had to trim most of the inner fender liner up front, only thing that rubs is the cab mount at half lock bumps. Rarely though. My wheels are 17x8 with 4.5 BS

Oh shit you might have some trouble with a 18mm offset. You should go with either a negative offset all the way to a 0mm offset is fine. Hopefully you can get it done though.
