    If you have the cash, what lift would you buy? Looking for the best lift but not sure which one :confused: I like the bds coil over setup pretty smooth:cool:

    I believe that is a drop bracket lift. I've never seen one on a Taco in person, but 4" blocks in the rear doesn't sound too appealing to me. And at $3300, I'd expect at least a new leaf pack. Not too sure what kind of spindles those are, but they look beefy. I wonder if they have any lift on them.

    Most guys on here with 6" lifts go with Pro Comp or Fabtech.

    the best would be any bracket and then get king c/o's and king resis in the rear with real leaf packs. But that would just be silly to do that. They are all pretty much the same. lots of folks here like the procomp lifts.

    The two long running contenders are Fabtech and Procomp. With the BDS kit, it looks like they subsidize the cost of the Fox coil overs by skipping the AAL. If I could do it again I'd go the BDS route. That's if I even went with a 6" lift again.

    Either way, the stock leaf packs suck and even with a AAL/Block combo you'll eventually want to change them out for some custom 6" lift packs. My rear is sagging after 18k miles on the stock leafs/Fabtech AAL.

    Dud your setup is sick man! I'm curious, how did you fit your 35s on your truck? I know most 6 inch lifts require some trimming. Do you have a body lift on too?

    IF you do go with pro comp just get stage 1 and then get icon's for shocks.
