    Finally got the taco lifted, just thought I’d post some pics. Eibach Pro Truck Leveling Kit with Falken Wildpeaks (265/75/r16). Rides better, looks better and gas mileage is about the same.

    I've been looking into this setup.

    Is this just the kit installed, or did you do an AAL etc? Any particular settings?

    Truck looks great!

    2” in the front 1” in the back. I think these can actually go higher in the front but it’s on the lowest setting (I think not positive). Also the first picture is a little bit deceiving, it is perfectly level. I know some guys put no lift on the rear but if you ever haul anything, the rear end will sag down.

    Must be the angle of the picture and the slope the truck is on then. Those quicksand trucks are beauties , makes me wish I could have found one in that color ...

    Gas mileage about the same since the new tires, or the Lift?? Sounds a little hard to phantom.

    Regardless, looks good!:thumbsup:

    Tocamo, my gas mileage is around 19-21 after the lift and new tires, which is what it has always been. Speedometer is still dead on.

    My buddy and I did it in his garage. He’s a mechanic for Toyota so that helped. We’re about 20 mins south of Pittsburgh.

    Thanks, Im new to Pa and am looking for a reputable installer in my area, around Exton if anyone could let me know if they know of anyone. I hear good things about Hanover Toyota but am looking for something a bit closer.

    Darn, other side of the state. West side is the best side :) I have no idea if Toyota dealerships install lifts. You may want to look up a place that does truck mods and after market installations. If you’re mechanically inclined you might be able to do it yourself, it wasn’t very difficult.

    Tires are 265/70/17 (same overall diameter as the OP) with the truck lifted 2 inches front and back.

    Did you have to install a new swingarm with the 2" lift?

    Are you asking me?
    If so I have new SPC upper control arms, gives me more alignment options at that height.
