    First i cannot express how helpful this site has been with everything since i bought my tacoma in september! So Thank you in advance

    So i've got all the info i need to put some 18 inch wheels with some 35 inch toyo mt's thanks to all the other posts i've put on this site. Now i know i need the 6 inch lift but which one?? p.s. im 99% street driving it's just to sit higher and look cool! (I'll just be honest)

    TRD CAI, Fabtech 6", 35's. More to come; CO's, Alcan Leaf's,
    The 35's do look good, but be ready to rub a LOT! I have the Fabtech 6" and have previously run 35's. But Moab didn't agree with it, mall-crawling should be alright.

    Well I dont think anyone has pushed their 6" kit as hard as silverseven has, and as far as I know he never had any troubles. A lot of people like the Fabtech because the cross member is thicker and I believe the Coilovers are better

    He still has it, it's just in a pile on the garage floor.

    Fabtech all the way, just invest in the fabtech front coilovers with the kit and save yourself the havoc of having to replace them later, thats where im at..having to upgrade the front lift with fabtech coilovers. The ride upfront is not bad at all with the basic kit but could be better and even a smoother ride with the fabrech or king coilovers. And honestly you might as well find yourself investing in some Alcan or deaver rear leafs in the future cause the rear block and AAL with the TSB leafs isnt to smooth (quite stiff) IMO. These are just a couple things im having to change on my 6 inch fabtech. Other than that i love my Fabtech and its one of the greatest upgrades ever. Just look at Krookzs' page and that guy is awesome and very helpful, i learned a lot from him and his truck just from lurking for a long time.


    FABTECH stage 2 with some new rear leafs and its a perfect lift combination.

    i was also wondering about this. i looked at the fabtech site and was looking at the dirtlogic kit, which from what i hear is the best way to go, however i also hear it is a bad street ride,but if you just drive on the street and do not wheel, which fabtech kit should i get?
