    bilstein 5100 shocks set at 1.75" or 2.5" (might need to get UCA's with the 2" option) and a AAL in the back that should raise it either 1.5" or 2" wether you get the TSB option or not

    if he goes with the billies set at either 1.75" or 2.5" he wont need ucas. but 2.5" is about the highest you can go with out needing them though. also maybe look at the rancho quicklift :crapstorm:

    You've got many options.

    1. What do you plan to do? just looks? highspeed desert runs?

    2. How much do you want to spend? What's the most you'll spend on it?

    Tires: you can fit the equiv of a 32" tire without modification, you can fit the equiv of 33" tires with aftermarket wheels/ or spacers, and some minor trimming.

    Well amigo, start using the little search box on the main page of each sub-forum. There is a TON of info on all this stuff. Pretty much every single thing you can possibly do to a Tacoma is documented on here somewhere.

    Does your Taco have 16" or 17" wheels?

    anything higher that 2.5 inchs, Upper Control Arms (UCA) are highly recommended
