    fabtech and pro comp both make 6" lifts. Body lifts are out there as well. As far as the VSC, I can't help you. I dont even know if my own truck has that lol.

    wtf? Bankrupt? Not heard anything about that. That don't mean they are going under. But there is a good chance production might stop or slow down. I might go ahead and order my kit if thats the case.... put it on the damn card I guess.


    edit- just found this on another forum. I googled "fabtech going bankrupt" and it was forum pandemonium. Read through this thread. Theres another company by the name of Fabtech.

    yea i heard fabtec is slowly going under, also i hate their stuff IMO. instead of a body lift you could run spacers on top of your susp lift to get 7-8 inches and clear the 36s

    yea idk i hope theyre still in business i hear alot of bad about the procomp 6 inch an i sure as hell aint gonna buy a tuff country 6 inch, i would do the spacer on top but if i do it gonna be on a prerunner an im gonna run 12 inches again,cause i went through to many cv axles with my old tacom with the 6 inch 3 inch sandwich,theyre not super expensive but pain in the a and i dont wanna take a chance at messing up another lift cause of cv binding an wheel bearing binding then crackin something ha

    From what I've read on here based on people who have had fabtechs they are incredibly happy.

    Trey, what experience have you had with Fabtech that makes you hate them? (not trying to sound like a jackass... but I'm getting a kit from them and want to know whats to hate/look out for.)

    by the way... I see you mentioned the 2.7L. I wouldn't get that if I was gonna run a 36" tire...even with 4.88 gears. Definately get the V6

    For all the lift you want and the stuff you seem to have planned. Go with the AC Prerunner V6.

    Spindle Lift for 4 Inches, Suspension Lift for 3. No need for a body lift.
    Plenty of power to turn those 36" meats.
    Get an Offroad or throw an ARB in there to take it off road....Good to go.

    ^That. The taller spindles give you a 4 inch lift and then you can add spacers or a set 5100s or whatever else you want to add more height.
    A new leaf pack in the rear...Or some AALs...whatever works for you.
