Research should be your first step! Read up on the different 6" lifts that are made for the Tacoma. Find people who have the lift your looking for and ask them what are the pros and cons, and see if it's the way to go. Sometimes you don't get the answer you want by asking "what should i get" or "what are your suggestions".

Also are you looking to lift for looks or purpose? Is your truck your DD? Gotta think about gas and wear and tear.

For $1500 you can get a nice 3" lift FOX, Icon, Toytec, OME.

Just find the one the best suits your need and budget.

Like jd said Pro Comp and Fabtech make 6" lifts for the Tacoma also Icon just came out with a new 6"-7" lift that works with the Prom Comp lift.

dont buy a 6in the basic kits are just a really expensive spacer. if your willing to spend $1500 on your suspension you can get some nice coilovers (fox, icon...) some good rear shocks (bili 5100) and an AAL pack. you will be much happier w/ those parts in terms of ride and performance

and for $500 more you can get some new UCA's to go w/ the CO's

or look into camburg and TC's lift spindles... so many better options out there than over priced drop bracket kits

Spindles are a great choice but not for him. He is 4x4
