    I have a 5 lug 2wd Tacoma with itty bitty wheels. I want to be able to get 265/75/15 tires on it, prolly gonna have to get new rims, but I was curious given that it has a stock suspension on it(aka..height of your grandmother buick) how much of a lift would I need to fit those tires under it comfortably. I basically want it to sit about the same height as a 4x4 or pre-r give or take. Could I get away with doing just a spacer and aal or a body lift, or will I have to shackle and spindle her up?

    IMO for the 1st gen 5 lugs just get the 3'' body lift and call it a day. Suspension for our 5 lugs are expensive.

    Damn! I always thought we had the 5100 option, finally was looking at it and they don't have one for 5-lugs?! I had always just assumed they made them for all Tacos and hadn't checked into it seriously yet, rookie mistake.
    But come on, where's the 5-lug love?

    there just wasnt a big market for the 5 lug lifts...

    only options around were the Fabtech spindle lift and Total Chaos long travel...

    the 05+ 5 luggers have options though...
