    I just got a brand new Tacoma 4 door and want to lift it soonish. What all 6 inch lift kits are yall running? I had a BDS long arm on my CUMMINS and loved it, but is anyone running the BDS kit on the tacomas, and the body lift is out of the question.

    I'm curious how a drop bracket lift is "useless" and why you are so worried (to the point of being rude...) about what someone else is going to do to their truck...

    Factory step sides (black). Katskin Leather Heated seats. Tacoma rubber floor mats. Totally Debadged, KCCO sticker added! Front emblem painted (blue). Engine cover painted (blue). Rear differential breather relocated (to rear storage box). Cobra DX 19 IV with a 3' No ground Firestik antenna and a Relentless Fabrications antenna hood mount. Blue sea 12 slot fuse box with ground. 100 amp Circuit breaker. Custom bed rack painted (blue). Mounted to custom rack; shovel, axe, Thule ski rack, 5 GAL. Jerry can holder custom built painted (blue), 20MM ammo can used as tool box. Relocated the 7pin for factory hitch. Under hood LED lights with push pin switch. Sylvania HID xenon filled headlight bulb replacement. Redline Quicklift plus hood struts. Body Armor Rear Plate Bumper w/tire carrier. Daystar 2 1/2" front Spacer lift 1 1/2 rear. 265/75-16 Goodyear Duratrac AVS dark tint Vent Visor. Leer Legend 100 Topper. Painted Gauge circles BLUE.
    So pro comp has a 6" lift kit, as does
    Fabtech, BDS just developed a 6" drop
    Bracket kit as well. Or as they said RCD
    Has a 4-5" kit. Personally I am going with the
    Fabtech, it has a add a leaf and a small block
    In the rear where as most kits just have a 4"
    Block. It is also the most expensive kit I've seen
    Too. Good luck on your choice.

    I love it when you ask for advice and people
    Just tell you how stupid you are for your decision
    Instead of answering your question.

    Off topic a bit, but I must clarify contrary to popular belief my truck and or suspension components have nothing to do with my penis size.

    Exactly ^^^

    Unfortunately, there are a number of members on this site that are oblivious to the fact that they suffer diarrhea of the mouth.

    The reason most say db lifts are crap is because they are. They reduce ground clearance big time and the kits themselves aren't very good. A few members already ditched their db lifts for 3 inch lifts. What's that say about them?

    In the end the OP should get what he wants and the other members should just stop getting butthurt.

    I got under a pro comp lifted truck and the diff was kinda low. You look under a 3 inch lifted truck and the diff was way up there.

    Yeah I never had a problem with it, I'd say the biggest advantage is being able to run an actual skid plate!

    I sense some hostility, but look at the BDS kit, I like it because it doesnt seem to hang nearly as low as procomp or fabtech. I want to run 35's it will be used for some trails but mainly mud, its TEXAS we got mud and I like the look of a 6 inch on 35's. Will I use it to pick up hookers as stated above, no are you crazy, I use my bike for hookers because i can dump them of the back easier than a truck. Remember lift it, fat chicks cant jump.
