    So, yesterday at work, a guy came in that had a tacoma lifted 6 inches and it looked awesome.

    I ask you guys what is the cheapest/best way to lift my taco 6 inches? What size tire? How much will tires cost? Do I need to regear (if so, how much will that cost? I pretty much just need all the info, links, and prices I can get.

    Ok, well if you want to do it right, you will need to go with either Fabtech performance or Pro Comp stage 2. Those two are the coilover lifts. You can find them for around $2500. You can do a Fabtech basic or pro comp stage 1 whish will use the stock suspension and you will have a huge spacer up front. You can get those around $1800-$2000ish. Tire wise most people are running either 33's or 35's. You dont have to regear with either, but if you go with 35's you might want to. You will probably want a 17, 18, or 20" rim depending on what you like. The tires can cost around $1200-$1500ish, and the rims can be around $800-$1000ish. If you plan on off roading it hard there will be a lot more to look at.

    Wow thanks for all the info! I knew that it would cost a lot, but I didn't know it would cost this much. All in all, it would around $5,500 for the lift, tires, and wheels and that's without installation prices:eek:. I didn't even pay that much for the taco to begin with haha. I think it'd be smarter for me to sell my taco and buy a used lifted 1500 or something.

    Try calling http://diabloffroad.com/ . His name is dave and he lifted my f250, He is a great guy to work with and REALLY knows his stuff!! I bought a procomp stage 1 lift that should be at his house just before christmas, it cost $1348, noshipping , no tax, I bought a set of 4 mickey thompson 33x12.50r17 tires which should be at his house for $920, no tax, no shipping, his going to install the lift for me and he charges around $500 to install usually on ifs trucks. I meet him a few years back on fordtruckworld. His truck has been in several magizines nad has won many awards at the fall o`riley 4wheelparts offroad jam. Call and ask him for some pricing and tell him that mike stafford recommended you.

    Alright, I'll give him a call later today when it's no so early:D. I don't know if I'll be able to have him install it because he's in Indiana, but ordering some parts from him is a definite possibility.

    I don't live far from Cinci at all, about a 45 minute drive. Awesome!


    I just assumed that he was in Indiana, since that's where you are.
