    You CANNOT run All Pro LT with 33's without fiberglass fenders. If you get out there and actually use the travel it will bash your stock fenders like a retard on a drum on a set.

    I have fab tech and I guess for what I use them for the okay but I wouldn't use them again. For the money I'd rather get something else.

    Not true, my alignment is dead on. If I hit something hard enough to knock it out it would fold your DB lift like a lawn chair

    Stock- just bought rims, tires, and 4' spindles (camburg) Just waiting for rims (back order:-/), then off to the shop
    I had a 6" fabtech on my Yukon a whole back and I hated it! Felt like it was lifted with bricks! Also same thing with my friends f150 that had the fabtech

    I got my lift in trade for working on another Tacoma. Not sure why such a bad reputation, but I do admit I haven't driven anything that had a different lift for any length of time. The only thing I would say I don't like is the stiffness. It is a bit rough of a ride, but then again I don't expect a lifted truck to ride like a factory truck anyway. I will say this, I see a lot of people running other lifts, and they break stuff. I have yet to break anything, and I wheel just as hard as they do.

    This is true and why 90% of their sales are from 2WD trucks, mostly for show and people whose want to run bigger wheel tire combo, don't get me wrong if you have 2wd and you don't go off roading it will last
