    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to raise up my 2008 Regular Cab a little bit to make room for bigger tires. I was thinking about a 3in lift, but I'm not sure if I should jump on a the Toytec Bilstein Height adjustable 5100 front and rear 5100 shocks kit for $350 or the other Toytec 3" spacer lift for $230. This isn't a heavy duty off-road vehicle, but I do travel through light forest trails occasionally.

    I honestly want the look of a lift for the least amount for the time being so I can get larger tires, but don't want to be a moron about it.

    I saw this tacoma in another thread not that long ago and can't remember whose it was, but can anyone identify the lift height?

    I really want my regular cab to have the same stance.

    Go with the OME 885's and 5100's. I have that set up and it was AMAZING. Rode great with tons of flex.

    This is bjmoose's truck. (hope it was okay to whore your truck out, but I think it's the coolest single cab out there)

    He has an OME lift with 885 coils. You could just go for an add a leaf in the back to save on some cash.

    Thats his install thread that talks about the lift a bit.

    Don't get spacers. If you don't go the OME route, check out more into the 5100's and eibach springs.
