    Alright guys. I want the most articulation as possible while still accomplishing 3 inches of lift. I do not want to exceed over a $1,000. What would you guys choose??
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
    or
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    Where I go offroading has a lot of sand dunes and rolling bumps. What would you guys do? Also, I am going to run 265's. Should I run a 3 ply or a 5 ply tire? BTW I have a 2.7.
    Thanks

    both of those are great lifts. with either one you choose, you will be satisfied.

    I run toytec's lift, and havent had any problems with articulation... though the more expensive stuff will get you more, this has more than sufficed for me.

    The only way for more droop than stock is with uniball ucas abs extended length coil overs. Removing your sway bar will help you net more articulation. Long travel will net you the most articulation for ifs.

    If you're doing high speed and don't want to go long travel, Icon's kit are digressive valved. Basically rally valving haha. The shocks are softer and travel easier the faster the movement.

    Basically the best you can buy:

    http://www.iconvehicledynamics.com/store/products/05%252dUp-Tacoma-Suspension-System-%252d-Stage-2.html

    Pricey but worth it. This is roughly what I'll have in my truck shortly (Right now I only have the front).

    With this you can fit 285/75R16's or (The best IMO) 255/85R16s. Basically 33's.
