    recently purchased 2.5 front spacer kit for my 09 tacoma
    im looking to get some 285/70/17 very soon
    i was thinking about keeping the rear factory w/o adding an extra leaf
    im curious about the way it will look
    anybody have any suggestions or pictures of what it will look like???

    unless you have the rear tsb it's gonna be very nose high. if you do a search for " lifted tacoma " you'll have about a million posts with pics and specs.

    Welcome to TSB. If you like the bro-lean, it will be fine.

    im not really into that whole nose up prerunner bro look
    i just want my truck to look clean as can be with the money i have lol
    i figured since the truck sits leaning forward a little bit,
    these spacers would level it out a bit with the nose slightly facing upward
    im thinking its gonna sit way to far up in the front. unless i add a leaf
    what do you think?
    i dont off road that much or else i would invest in 5100s, heard there worth it


    nice truck btw very clean

    How much is the spacer you are looking at? You can get 5100's for the front for under $200.

    It will be distinctively nose-high with 2.5 up front and stock rear.

    already bought it from 4wheel parts for $140 just havent put them on yet
    i think i might return them and just buy the 5100s and add a leaf
    i seen a picture of a tacoma 2.5 in front, stock in back and it looks horrible
    do you know where i could buy those 5100s?

    Here's some of mine. I have a 2.5 top plate spacer and 285/70/17s. My truck actually sits pretty level (maybe a little nose high but not really noticeable).

    Mines the one in the middle parked next to a stock prerunner(no lift).
