    I just bought a 2012 Tacoma dc prerunner SR5. I was thinking about buying Ultimate 3 inch lift kit from Toytec (1.1k) I want to install 17 X 9 or 18 X 9 XD HOSS 795 chrome rims with toyo open country at. I will not go off road but I do want the aggressive look. I just sold my 2003 H2 on 20s w/the open country ats and it looked good. Do I really need the kit or is the bilstein kit (few hundie) or leveling kit more up my alley. I obviously want the best ride for the money (w/a wife and two car seats). Any help and pics are appreciated.

    If you do the bilstein it will b good enough in my opinion. Although i ended up getting spindles cause they were up for a good price. With the bilstein at 2.5 my alignment was good n i loved the stiff ride but had to lower them back to. 85 front bilstein 5100 r like 170 n ur set.

    I wouldn't recommend a leveling kit if you're concerned about a quality ride. The ultimate kit would be a fine way to go. Do remember that lifting even three inches may require new UCA's, etc.
