    Hello everyone I am now a new member here after coming to read up on my new Tacoma. I have always had fords until I got started looking at Tacomas. I traded in July and I am loving it. I have lifted 8 trucks in my life and ran from 33"s to 17x40's so with that being said I want to do something to the Toyota now. I had to drop down in size due to a knee problem so I am not going crazy here. I am going to install a 3 inch Ready Lift to it. I want a lil rake to it so i'm thinking 3 inch in front and only a 2 inch block in back. I have been searching the forms on here and I like a lot I see. I just aint too sure on the wheels yet. I like the RBP's 94R wheels with like 275 Toyo's. What off set and back spacing should I run. I want them to stick out 1 inch so i'm saying -12 offset and 5 inch back spacing. Wow sorry for the long post and thanks for any info you can share with me.

    Have you considered Bilstein 5100 for the front lift? May provide a slightly better ride for not much more $$.

    I'd call Marie @HeadStrong Off-Road and get some input on parts. You'll want to know your goals for the truck and how you use it 80+% of the time.

    You're on a path that you might not like the results of. Especially on a $35k ride.
