    Just bought my first Tacoma. I have always had Jeeps so this is a whole new world for me. I have done some digging on here but no clear guidance on lift kits. somone help !!

    Here is what I want.
    -good ride on/off road
    -2.5"-3" Or what ever clears 33's with no big trimming.
    -NO SPACER CRAP
    -quality products.
    -everything needed for under $1100

    I hear alot about the 5100s and AALs but I would love some specifics & pics would be great. thanks

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    i would get bilstein 5100s set at .85 with eibach springs, get some 33s on 8 inch rims, some trimming will be needed though, and get the toytec 1.5 or 2 inch AAL.

    and is your 1100 budget with tires??

    if not i would get a dakar 2 inch leaf pack, much better ride, and some bilstein 5125s for the rear

    If your budget is $1100 for a lift I'd get a full OME Suspension Lift, extended brake lines in the rear, and a set of LR UCA's.

    That's what I got and I love it.

    3" OME lift 885s & Dakars riding on 33" KM2s Click the sig pic to see the build thread .
    OME. Skip the UCAs and get the Dakar leaf pack insted. You might not need new UCAs, I don't. 885s & Dakars gave me 3" lift front & rear. Rides great on & off road.
