    today i was browsing around the web for deals when i saw an add from iShock that was looking for a tacoma for the catalog, got in contact and seems my truck its all the requirements. in the next couple of weeks ill be meeting with them for install pics and videos
    "The kit will have 1 1/4” *uni-ball style upper control arms, 2.0 coilovers, etc to raise the front 2.5 to 3” and increase travel…and then the back will go up 1 – 1.5” to give it a clean stance front to rear."
    thats what i was told i would get
    only thing that worries me is if my stock 16's will clear the BS or if i will need spacers for now before i upgrade to aftermarket
    any recomendations?

    Sounds sketchy to me. Nothing is free... but do your thing man. Long travel isn't cheap.

    Good luck.

    They sell shit like pro comp, rcd, skyjacker, and other brands. I havn't found anything on their site they make for trucks... could be wrong.

    :confused: When is this suppose to be happening?

    Depends what parts they are putting on it :confused: what coil overs? What upper control arms? More info the better.

    If its mid travel it should be coil overs and upper arms for the front and leaves and shocks out back (IRRC) not sure if leaves are needed for mid travel.
