    I called and asked for advice on cheapest way to fit 33" tires on my new 2017 Tacoma DCSB Offroad. The guy said don't go with 3" lifts they all vibrate badly. The guy said only go with 6" they don't vibrate.

    Guy said Procomp 6" lift are the best. Recommended to go with the $1600 with ES9000 shocks
    Pro Comp Suspension Pro Comp 6 Inch Lift Kit with ES9000 Shocks - K5089B
    or spend more for the coilovers with this one
    Pro Comp 6 Inch Lift Kit with Pro Runner Shocks - K5089BPX

    Just wondering what you guys think about this.

    This is my only vehicle daily driver but want it to be an overlanding slow and careful type offroader nothing fast no jumps etc.. and not a rock crawler.

    There's a search button in the upper right corner. Go ahead and use that. I promise you'll find the info you need.

    The sales rep is just trying to upsell on their house brand. 6" is overkill for your needs.

    These kits have a big bar that goes below the crossmember up front of the truck, it has a technical name but i cant think of it. Anyways with it added you basically have a plow under your truck and will see a very small increase in Ground clearance. The vibes that come from the 3" kits are typically from the front diff bushing. There is a replacement bushing from ecgs that will not vibrate.

    a 6 inch lift wont suddenly stop the issues that may come up from a 3 inch. General consensus is to avoid above 3 inch of lift.

    Most people on here are not fans of drop bracket lifts.
