    So I am sorry to do this to you guys and post another thread about suspension questions but I need to get it figured out :confused:. I am getting an all pro front bumper with warn winch. To counter this weight I am going to purchase a new lift and have about 3500 to spend on it. I am going to do off roading, but primarily mud and small rocks and trails with very little to no desert running. I like the look of a higher truck and like the fabtech for the space it creates.
    I like the C/O such as the fox 2.5 c/o - but i dont like the little amount of lift i get with it. Also i was lookin at the all pro website and see the fox 2.5 c/o for 1400.. is this for only one shock or is it for a set... if i get the fox or something like it... what will i get for the back suspension.

    Someone please help me :(

    You don't get anymore clearance from 3 to 6 inches. You will have a higher center of gravity. If you are getting the all pro with winch that tells you are more into off roading than the average person. If for looks the 6 lift with big tires look great. But you are better off getting CO like Fox, King, Icon or SAWs. Thank is my opinion. Other will chime in but it is your truck and get what you feel is best for you.

    Thanks for the input. Would you mind telling me what you paid for your king 2.5's and what you did to the rear?

    You are looking about 1400 for the fronts and 800 for the rears...I got mine 6 months used for $800 shipped, I got lucky

    Check them out at downsouthmotorsports.com send Sonny an Email and tell him you are a Tacoma World Member, he will give you a better price.

    Sonny is very helpful.

    I love my kings and would not have it any other way. My friend builds Dune Buggies and all he uses are Kings. Most of the LT trucks around me also use King.

    2nd choice for me would be Fox

    Then Icons
