    I'd like some feed back on my tacoma. Like? Dislike? Suggestions? Currently I love my tacoma, but the tires really rub. I'm thinking of gettin a two inch body lift to help solve that problem. I'm totally against body lifts but I'm sick of hearing my tires rub in reverse on the frame and on the bumper on compressed turns.. Is this a good idea?

    It's ok for a double cab...
    Just playing dude, nice looking truck. I like the tires and wheels. Do something to fix the rubbing but I think these trucks look perfect with 3" lift, no more.

    Those tires are enormous! I couldn't even tell you had a lift with how stuffed those are. Looks good though.

    yeah I've already cut the crap out of my bumber and anything else that rubs. Do you think a small body lift will help? My tires are too wide 12.5....crap I'm screwed! What ever it looks good!

    a body lift will not help the rubbing of the body mount without hacking that mount.nice looking ride btw.

    what about a 2 inch suspension lift, would that help with the rubbing on the body mount?

    mgm is nice.
    not a huge fan of the big wheels.

    but thats just me
    good luck w/your rubbing issues

    Well your profile says you have a 3" lift already. Unless you are taking it out and putting in a bigger lift like a 6". A body lift will do nothing to gain you frame clearance.
