    I have a brand new 2013 Double Cab Tacoma. I am looking to do a 1.5-2in lift, any advice?

    another option for a 1.6 to 2" lift is

    5100's set at ZERO lift, eibach/toytec coils

    rear, 5100s with Icon or Wheelers progressive AAL (1.5" without overload, or 2" with overload)

    None yet :D.
    Im going to jump on the bandwagon here! This is a good chance to have some questions asked for myself and the OP.
    With the 5100's on the top setting, will the factory UCAs have any contact?

    That depends on the size of the tire and wheel backspacing.

    Plan is to pay it off while stockpiling parts, and if the 2015's are decent to get one for work and start cutting on the '12. We'll see. I keep watering my tree and nothing is happening. Maybe I'll try some Miracle-Grow.....

    Wow thanks guys, Im going to run a neg offset rim. Shouldn't have a issue with them I guess.
    Also I don't plan on going any higher than either 650 or Boones setup, I don't have to worry with extending anything right? Like diff drop?

    I want to do 5100s in front and aal in rear thats it. Thanks for the pics guys. 650 I love that color man.
