    Which do you think looks the best on the DB LB's? Im thinking about getting one, If they descide to total my truck. But just not sure which lift looks best. Im thinking the 4.5" RCD?

    not talkin out my ass. i've had plenty experiance with drop bracket lifts and they suck out here where i live. yeah they look pretty, but they cant hang with mid-travel trucks, which cost the same price...

    Soo Long Travel it is! :)

    I really dont care for drop bracket lifts myself. but the 4.5" lift does look good. I just think the 3" lift doesnt even make the LB's look like there lifted. you know....

    the RCD does look good, better than the 6" DB's i think... but like you said...i'm just not a big fan of DB lifts on tacomas

    this guy is running Icon set up all around the truck, looks lifted and looks good. he 4WD

    I have a DC LB and I plan on doing a 3" on 33s!

    Nelsonmatt, have any more pictures of that MGM truck, or a link?

    Ok so given that I am the only one who has posted here with a DCLB I feel that I think the 3 inch with 33s looks too small. You can look at all the pictures in the world but all these trucks look so unique in real life that trying to portray them on the internet is a hard thing to accoplish. All of the trucks reg/access/dc and DCLB look so different that its hard to say one thing looks good on something and not something else. IMO I have done the research and I feel that it should be more then 3 inches. The RCD would look good but the 6 inch looks great as well. TO me this is pretty close on what mine looks like.

    I think its too small but I spend my mod money so Im going to stay this way.

    This one looks epic.


    Eventually I will get an RCD with some 885s and make my own 6 inch with 35s.

    huh... Now you got me thinking Trey..... :)
    I def. wouldnt get the 6", just bc I think its too much and dont want to run 35's. Bc thats the only size tire that looks good with the 6". I need to keep my MPG's descent. So If I go with the 4.5" RCD. I think I could run either 33's or 34's. And it will still look good. Too many descitions...

    All I do know, Is that it has too handle and ride great offroad!
    Oh and hey guys! I just found a 09 Silver DC LB 4x4 TRD in my area for 25k and 20k miles. Is that an awsome deal? I wish I was ready too buy right now! :(
