    Leer cap, rear TSB, BFG All Terrains 10 ply 265/75/16, mud flap trim, black badges, AFE filter, 3" Toytec lift, 884 OME coils, add - leaf, Bilstein 5100 all around
    Numerous threads confuse me. I will try and make this clear in hopes of soliciting guidance/help.

    MY TACOMA: 2008 TRD 4x4 access cab

    CURRENT UPGRADES: Bilstein 5100's in front / set at 1.75"
    TSB rear leaf spring installed
    Tires: 265/75/16 BFG AT 10 ply

    WILL THIS LIFT KIT WORK? Ready Lift kit 69-5056 ( 2" rear lift blocks
    / front steel strut extensions )

    From what I've read this will lift my truck approx. 2" front and rear. I can't afford much more at this time. Also, I do not intend to increase my tire/wheel size. Is this package good for my intentions - primarily for looks. My off roading is light...nothing extreme. Any thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

    You already have billies? You do not want to stack a spacer with them. If you off road any stay away from spacers.

    So I gather my intentions are not going to work. Do I increase ( if wise or possible ) the settings on the front 5100's? Spacers still in the rear?
    Now that I have this Tacoma build up in my head, and I'm new at this mod process, what's the best solution?

    You can set the 5100's at 2.5, and then use a thin top plate spacer to get up to 3", but don't go above 3" total.
