    Hey guys,
    I am new to Tacoma but not new to offroading.
    I just picked a 07 double cab TRD, looking for a good lift kit to fit 33x12.5/16
    I like to lift it just enough to fit those tires, and I am looking for a good road/offroad ride.
    every now and then I will load up my snowmobile too.

    So what do you guys suggest for a good but not super pricy lift kit!

    Thanks

    This may sound like jibberish, so check out toyteclifts.com

    5100's preloaded to the highest setting, add a leaf in the rear. Depending on your rear shocks you may wanna toss some 5100's back there too.

    If you have a little more money to burn, look into getting some OME or Eibach front springs with the 5100's, you can preload them at the lowest setting for 3 inches of lift.

    Good luck

    Thanks guys,
    I did check those 2 sites before posting but there is mostly info about the lift kit itself, not about the size of tire that can be fit

    Typically for a wheel wider than 265 you need a spacer, I've heard 275's clear, but 285's definitely need a spacer.

    Your going to have to get a 4.5-6" lift to clear a 33x12.5" tire unless ypu want to cut up your inner fenders/cabmount.

    Im running eibach coils on 5100s. Its only 2.5" lift on .85" setting. I added a small top plate spacer for 3".
    Fits fine with 285s, no rubbing on/off road. I have TC UCAs as well, set the caster properly and it wont rub on the cab mount. I might try the ome 886 next time.
