    Bought this truck with just the stock TRD package, don't know what kind of suspension this even is. That being said, what do y'all think is the best suspension height to be installed if I also plan on installing steel front/rear bumpers later. thanks.

    Do you plan on doing a lot of off-roading, or mostly just street driving? Do you want a trick setup, or a more basic, quality lift.

    You have a bunch of options.... You gotta give us what you are willing to spend, what size tires you want to run, etc.

    thats the thing, I don't know much about it. Mostly street driving, but plan on getting in the mud a little. Mostly would like to have it look good and go through a fairly deep puddle, and definitely don't have the cash for new tires yet. Gotta do it one pay check to the next ya know?

    id say ome would be best quality for the price but make sure you get the appropriate spring rate for a bumper. what are your specs? l4 v6 double cab ac cab single cab?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Just start with some new shocks and a AAL (add a leaf) some bilstein 5100's or OME
