Suggestions?

Hey I have been wanting to put bigger tires on my 08 Tacoma TRD and I was wondering whether for the money just spacers or a whole new suspension would be a better deal? Most of my driving is on the highway and the most off roadind I'd be doing is driving on old fire roads.

A better deal? hmmm it all depend on what constituents a better deal in your opinion. Do you want a lift? If so then go with a lift. If you just want bigger tires then just go with spacers.

You have a new truck. Might as well have it ride like one. Spend the money on a quality lift and then you will have the clearance for bigger tires as well.

word. dont cheap out

do it right the first time, that way you only have to do it once.

a complete OME set up from wheelers offroad will suit your need quite well

should cost you less then $700 and that is very very reasonable for a new suspension set up

If you just want bigger tires then spacers would be a better "deal". You can run a 32" tire withouth any lift or spacers; you'll need a lift and spacers to run 33" tires (or new UCAs or aftermarket wheels).
