    I bought my 2011 Tacoma sport short bed 4x4 last week and I plan on lifting in the near future. I know for the most part what I want. Just need some input.

    I know I want coilovers up front set at 3in with new UCAs. Looking at this setup...
    http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/products/sfID1/4/sfID2/78/sfID3/83/productID/39119

    It's just so damn expensive and I'll still need rear lift.

    So, how about... Wheelers Icon coilovers with the camburg or TC ucas. For the back bilstein 5100's and the 1.5in progressive add a leaf?

    I would like to be level. And am looking to do 285/70/17 duratracs on eagle 17x8 series 137.

    I guess my main concern is rear lift. Is the 1.5 progressive lift gonna make me level with 3in up front? Or the 1.5 progressive and get the TSB?

    Thanks for info all!

    Those are nice but with that kind of money you could have a cheaper kit like OME it is a good kit very capable on or off road and TC UCA and have money left for mods

    We can definitley set you up with the ICON with CAM/TCS arms. The 3 leaf aal set gives a nice ride, and will usually make the vehicle sit level with 2.5-3" of lift in the front.

    I think that is the setup in liking the best.

    By the time u add an ome lift and UCAs, I can spend 500$ more and get the Icon set up. I can wait an extra paycheck or work a lil OT.

    So, would it be worth it at all to still get the rear tsb with the 3aal?

    Thanks for the responses!

    The TSB will make it stiffer and give you maybe another .5" of lift or so.

    if you plan on loading up your bed with some weight or towing I would not reccomend the wheelers 3 pack. you need to remove the overload when using it. I ran it on my last truck and I loved it but the heaviest load I had in the rear was maybe 300 lbs. Dont get me wrong, its a great leaf pack but its not meant for weight.

    EDIT: you can leave you overload leaf it with it but your rear end will be higher than the front

    So 3in up front, and 3leaf progressive pack with leaving the overload leaf would have my rear higher?

    And if that's the case... The 3leaf pack plus the TSB would leave the rear a lot higher?

    What would be my best rear option, without going full leaf pack? The heaviest amount I'll be ever be in the back would be an elk or a quad.

    Thanks!

    I recommend the dakars, especially if your gonna haul a quad. I have the full OME lift, if you want to see how they look check my build thread.
