    I am thinking in installing this lift kit for my 09 Tacoma short bed, DB. I know there's two stages that Fabtech offers, but dont have enough $$ do go with the Stage II. I do all my driving on road. Thats another reason I don't want to go with the Stage II. People who have this kit what is it like? What is the cheapest price you found it for and how much did you pay for the intallation labor? Any other info regarding this kit is appreciated in advanced.

    I heard From alot shops Fabtech Drop bracket lift isn't that great. they have alot of quality issues. Look for RCD DB lift instead.

    Its decent for the drop bracket since you only have really 3 choices for that. But if you wanted more travel better ride quality you want to throw some better coilovers on.
