    I searched for this topic but didn't find anything.

    I have a 2010 Tacoma with a 3" RevTech leveling kit. I would love to go bigger for more clearance when offroading as I live in British Columbia with lots of tough mountain trails. I know there are air suspension lift kits for heavy duty trucks but is there anything out there for the Tacomas? I thought I could then raise the truck for offroading but they reduce the height for regular road travel so that the stability control doesn't engage.

    Because of the IFS in the front, you can't go over 3" without a drop bracket (or sas).

    ^^ what they said

    to go higher you will need either a solid axel swap (SAS)
    or long travel and you will gain 4 inches of lift i believe, with more travel..

    The stability control shouldn't be affected by lift... It engages due to putting oversized tires on the Tacoma and your dealer can reset the skid control computer for the larger tires so you won't have VSC issues.
