    apparently the 2012 that was getting lifted at 4WPs was also getting the same lift and 17s. 4WPs called me and told me that the 17s didnt fit on that truck so it didnt look like they were going to fit on mine....thanks to that 2012 for being the guinea pig lol.

    I have a question.... and didn't really want to start a new thread for it, although I should...

    But has anybody had any issues taking their (6"+ lifted)truck to the automatic (conveyor belt) car wash?

    I need to get my rig washed after this snow storm that just passed, and the octopus I been going to for years always had a big sign posted "No lifted trucks or large tires..."

    I'm sure I can go try and hear what they say, but wanted to hear if others experienced this.

    Weird issue to ask about lol, but ya. that.

    i used to take my 93 toyota pickup that was lifted 10+ inches through the car wash...a lot of them have the bar that has the maximum height that the vehicle can be upon entering the car wash....i say if your truck clears that...CHARGE!!!

    i would just wash the truck by hand...its probably easier on the paint and washing by hand always looks cleaner...well at least for me it does.

    I'm not sure how there was any confusion here. I just got my 2010 lifted 3 weeks ago from 4WP and couldn't be happier.

    I mean, did you do any research on ProComps website? They clearly say that this lift requires 18" wheels or bigger, otherwise it wont clear the knuckles.

    The guys over at my local 4WP were very clear about this too.

    However, I am assuming you are talking about the ProComp kit, b/c the Fabtech kit does allow for 17's...

    i wanted 17s because the tires and wheels were cheaper and i did see some tacomas running 17 inch wheels on the procomp stage 1.

    i brought this up to 4WPs prior the tire and wheel installation and they said it would fit. I also had them confirm with pro comp with a phone call and the sales rep from pro comp also said they should fit. LOL in this case...we were all wrong.

    i'm not necessarily mad...just sad that i didn't get my truck back yet..in the end it all worked out for me...i originally ordered the 33 xtreme m/t and the 7031 series pro comp wheels because i got the buy 3 get 1 free special. it definitely wasn't my tire of choice...and since i had to go bigger with the 18s i got to order the tire that i wanted with the cost of a little more money. i also saw the 7031 series in person and didn't really like it...so i changed my wheel type too. i guess everything happens for a reason...hopefully it works out this time around haha

    i honestly would go with the fabtech if you are gonna go with a 6". i went with the procomp because i got that $500 dollar rebate in december...and the 500 went to installation fees. you have an 08 with VSC so u will probably have to upgrade to 18s if you go with the procomp, try asking the 07 and up owners about how they run 17s without any issues.

    Shame on the individuals you talked to. I researched the be-jesus out of my kit b/c I thought about doing the install myself. I called ProComp several times and I talked to the local 4WP several times. Not once did I get any mis-information from anybody.

    Must have been the guys you talked to. Not sure if your local shop does a lot of this specific kit installs, but I was the 80th Tacoma lifted from my guy.

    Hit and miss I guess. Glad you got it sorted out man. Its a great kit (but I want to remove the AAL personally).
