    So, after viewing the several awesome 6 inch lifted Tacoma on here I'm partially convinced this is the way I should go. First, I barely offroad, like once twice a month. I have a 2008 SR5 non/trd acc. cab. I plan to keep just 33" tire (285/70/17s). I want to relieve the stress on my cv's and other suspension parts but still be lifted.

    I think 6 inch lifted Taco's look sick. I want to do it. But what are the real costs.

    I'm thinking a fabtech stage II but what else will I need for great ride quality on and off road and about how much is this going to cost.

    I'm guessing i'll need longer brakelines. But will I need a single piece drive shaft (for vibrations)...

    Also, I have bilsteins now, could I keep these at zero, put on stock springs and run a basic kit and still get good ride quality?

    thanks, so I can get the basic kit then upgrade later on to new coilovers. I might get the leaf pack anyway... was the the disadvantage to the block out back?

    I have been researching this same thing.

    I just requested a quote from Alcan and they quoted me 250 per spring.

    really not that bad

    I have then throwing around the different coilovers as well

    This is what I plan to use to cure the axle wrap/ launch shutter issue

    I ran one on my 99 pickup and it did wonders for axle wrap and has no effect on articulation and actually protects the driveshaft.

    I just posted in your build thread, I love you truck

    I had a few regear questions for you .

    Thanks

    so which is worse for ride quality, the spacers up front vs coilovers or the block in the back vs leaf pack

    I have the 6in fabtech basic on my 2007 and i love it. I did not have to get longer brakelines, it comes with all new brakeline mounts. I want to get new 6in coilovers soon aswell. Good luck with your decision man!

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    Dont forget that the install cost can get pretty hefty with the 6" lifts.
