    I am just looking for the best and most economical 3 in lift. I know thats about the max for the angles on the truck. Simply going for a little ground clearence and some 32's. Any input since this is my first rodeo with a Tacoma?

    Well there are a lot of options, many will argue which are the best, really all depends on your budget. You can go as low as $700 with the OME kit or you could spend around $2500 (I think) for an Icon set up

    Many people are fans of Bilsteins 5100s adjustable shocks. They can be raised to 2.5". They go for around $300. I think they're on back order at many places.

    Try the search button. Good luck!

    Yes sir you maybe right, I just remembered somewhere around the 500 range, I believe its the cheapest way to go for full 3 in other than a spacer. Of course the quality is 10 x's better too.

    I have 3" leveling spacers on my stock strut gottem off eBay installed them my self. brand is hell bent steel I've puttem through hell and there still holding up! FYI I had to get a rim offset of 4.5 so my tires wouldn't rub on my uca (upper control arm) I am running 295/75/16 and I rub on my body mounts. Gonna cut back the mounts when I get my tax return maybe in a week or so.

    We carry many products from spacers, to new springs, and coils, OME and our signature ToyTec gear. www.toyteclifts.com

    Just depends on how much you want to spend :)

    Considering you have an 05' and might want to replace your shocks at this time, I would suggest this kit if your trying to save some money: http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    But if you have a little more money to spend, I would go for this: http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    ToyTec gear carry's a Life Time Warranty.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    I believe you need 17" wheels for 6" lifts.
