6 inch lift on a 2009 Toyota Tacoma 4x4

Can a 09 toyota tacoma get a 6 inch lift? I have heard that you cant because of the VSC Vehical Stability Control. I really want a lift and should i just saw skrew the VSC or is there one that is compatible with it?

Yes you can do a 6" on a VSC, you just need to run 18" wheel or bigger.

can you add a 3" BL....yes....should you.....probably not. you would even be better off getting a basic 6" lift. horror stories out there of BLs causing nastiness from snapped body mount bolts to the BLs themselves cracking

Cool

eww that dont sound good at all, i know i have the rough country 3 inch suspension lift level kit, now what would be the best way to gain the extra 2-3 inches now. can you stack on the front or not a good idea the back im not worried about i can add. i dont know im just guess i want a bigger lift i do fine but i was now thinking maybe a lil more clearance id be like super great and then when i have to replace my 33's oi can go with 35's or something lol

I sure like the looks but cannot sacrafice power or mileage and performance.

Any loss of power?

How is your gas mileage?

Any issues with alignment, toe, caster? Vibs??

Not digging the 6 inch kits. Too small of a truck to lift so high IMO and also I affroad so a show kit like that would just fall apart and cause the truck to be tippy.
