    Hey I got an '02 reg cab 2wd, I'm sure this question has been asked a thousand times by noobs but maybe someone has recently stumbled on a better/cheaper way to do it. I wanna lift around 3 inches, and keep it under $400 bucks. Will I get a bad lift for that price? Whats a good sized tire? ($400 does not include the price of tires). Thanks

    Welcome to TW

    And yes the question has been asked before. Try searching the site before asking a question.

    $400 is pretty low for a 3" lift you get what you pay for. Just stay away form spacer lifts from what I have read there not good for many reasons.

    Check out Toytec lifts http://www.toyteclifts.com/3.html you will fine everything you need there.

    I realize that this question was asked previously on Tacoma world, but I wanted a updated answer. It's a 5 lug.

    Okay how large are you wanting to go? assuming you have the 2.4 you might loose a lot of power trying to move big tires.

    I say keep it small the 5 lug trucks are not built for big tires. maybe 31's at the most.

    Oh yeah, 31's are a big tire for that truck. I though some clean 30's and a good looking lift to match. If I were to get rid of the rake, and just level the truck out (without an actual lift), is there any way 30's would fit in the wheel wells without any rubbing from turning? Going too large for the 2.4 motor is my number one concern for sure. Thanks

    I don't think 30's are going to fit without a lift but then again I could be wrong. The stock tires on a TRD are sitting just under 30" so I'm pretty sure your going to need a lift to fit 30's on a 5 lugger.
