    I just got an '09 Tacoma Access Cab TRD. I am looking for a lift that will allow at least 32" tires on my factory wheels. (I'm trying to spend as little money as possible.) Anyone have reviews on this kit?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/05-11-Toyot...2009|Model:Tacoma&vxp=mtr&hash=item3f0e9d608a

    I have read the threads recommending the Bilstein/Toytec lifts, just wondering if the ebay package will get the job done for a bit cheaper?

    Also, will there be any issues with ATRAC or ABS with bigger tires?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to TW!

    I'm no expert on 2nd Gens, but this is a case of getting what you pay for. Spacer and block lifts aren't even in the same league with the suspension lifts (e.g., Toytec/Bilstein/OME) you mention.

    Spend some time perusing the gold mine of information here in the forums, so you can make an informed choice. Suspension Lift Info and Tacoma Lift FAQ/Guide are great places to start.

    If these are your goals, it will get the job done but it'll ride like doodoo! I had spacers and they sucked!
