    Question?

    How do you figure that you have that you have more ground clearance than the truck with a 6in lift and 35's? Just wondering how you got them measurements.

    6 inch lifts for Tacos require drop brackets. Those brackets hang down and kill ground clearance.

    i was looking at 6 inch lifts real hard for awhile but, in order for them not to look bro you have to be real careful about how you pick out your wheels and tires and everything else for that matter imho.

    the guys on here also let me know about the drop bracket and how it really does almost negate the purpose of lifting in the first place due to drop bracket lifts having a lot less ground clearance than a 3 inch lift.

    in the end i went with a 3 inch lift and a 295-70-17 tire and it has a ton of ground clearance compared to that truck

    Do you know if it drops it any farther than stock? and if it does how much lower?

    I don't know the dimensions I just know that it is way lower than a lift without a drop bracket. I'm going to bet that the lower cross member sits at stock height.

    yea thats what i was thinking.

    How does the three inch lift give it more ground clearance then? does it raise the front differential from where it sits stock?

    Stock clearance is 9.5", so a little bit higher than this taco in question.

    A typical good 3" lift raises the front of the truck by preloading the springs more. Nothing extra gets bolted on for the diff.

    So the aftermarket crosmember sits lower than the stock one? Lol. Well if you are only cruising the streets then you will be fine but that is useless offroad.

    Yes is does the lower control arms hang lower lifting the truck and the diff will sit higher. The 6" just drops everything down keeping the LCA's flat.
