    6" Zone lift on 35x12.50 swampers
    im looking to get a newer tacoma in the near future (probably a 2008-10)
    im looking at the 6 cyl standard 4 door off road package 4wd
    im thinkin hard about going with 6'' fabtech suspension lift with some 35s with stock wheels when i get the new one
    this will be my daily drive and i commute about 130 miles a day round trip to and from work every day can this be done with proper gearing as well as not tear up the truck too bad?
    thanks

    if your going to drive 130 miles a day then go for the 33 inch they look good i have the same set up you want on my truck its not a new gen but you can see the idea [​IMG]

    My neighbor has an 06 DCSB 6" ProComp and 35". This IS his daily driver. Sure, he wants to re-gear but has a 1 piece axle which has been doing just fine

    there has GOT to be a set of 35s out there that would last...
    i have a 98 on 33s with a 3'' body lift but im wanting a little more height to swing some bigger tires
    if theres a way to get it set up right to suit my driving situation then i have to do it
    for example i know for a fact that some 35'' bfg all terrains would last at least a year and a half on that light truck
    and why wouldnt it work?

    If you're driving that much stick with stock. I have a new dc lb that I put a 6" fabtech with 35's and it looks completely bad ass but it's not my daily driver. Sucks gas but that's to be expected :)

    honestly, if its what you want, and you can afford the gas then doo it!!

    shit i would.

    just get the 35s, make sure you dont get mud terrains though, and get some 4.56 gears then you will be set

    thousands of people run 35s on 28 spline axels

    Six inch lift are no good. Go with a 3" lift and get some 33" tires. WHy do you want a 6" lift kit with 35" tires? That is going to be terrible MPG's. Anyways, welcome to TW:)

    Might as well get a nice set of coilovers and leafs if your gonna spend that kind of money.

    Get a nice 3" lift and run your 35's. It's doable - that's what I am running and it's fine.

    I have an auto. I regeared to 4.56 while I had 33's. It's fine for 35's. But given the choice the small bump to 4.88 with 35's would be perfect.

    I have a 6" fabtec and 35s and it looks so badass. Mine is a dd but I don't drive that far. 35 mt just weigh so much, it had 32s and kinda looked retarded. Bad gas milage was expected when going bigger but looks too good

    Yup, cause thousands of people have street queen trucks that will never be traction challenged.

    I don't like the look of 35s. And even the with the 285s on my truck I wish I had 410s. Your going to want gears. So save up.

    i understand that gearing will take care of removing the stress from my transmission but what about the other wear and tear items like ball joints for example?
    i would like to get some 35'' all terrains
    its a less aggressive tire but i do most of my driving on the road anyway
    but whos to say i cant get an extra set of wheels with some other tires just for mud ;)
    i abuse the hell out of my truck but the thing about it is you have to pay to play and i get that
    i just wanted to know if 35s were doable and wouldnt destroy the truck 2 years down the road simply from commuting to and from work

    also the main reason i need 35s is for clearance because everyone i go ride with has 35s or bigger and i always find myself high-centered it sucks not being able to follow my friends ruts lol

    35's won't destory you truck in the long run if you re-gear and are planning on 80-90% of your time on street. If your truck was 100% street no real need to re-gear.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    With 35"s you will need to cut, a lot. And if you're having problems following peoples ruts in a tacoma, you are not doing it right. My guess is all your friends have retarded chevy trucks. Tacoma = superior over them
