    Aloha everyone,

    I have been lurking around this site the past few weeks, what a great community(forum). I read all the stickys to educate myself, as to not ask the the "?" the milly(nth) time. I want a lift and 17/18in rims. i've been going back and forth, ome lift or billys with spacers. Then i saw these pics(attached with a stock 2012 for comparison). Can someone please tell me if this 2012 tacoma is lifted, and if so by how much? I'm guessing a leveled front kit. Also, what size rims and tires(guessing 18in 275/70? I know this is straight eyeballing, but i figure with everyone here thats been moding tacoma's for so long, this could be easy. Lmk your shots in the darks. Thanks in advance, i plan on making my build tread once i make up my mind up.

    Aloha

    It looks like it's been lifted, 3" up front with 1-2 in the back.
    The tires are larger than stock as well, if it was only leveled there'd be a smaller fender gap IMO.

    Kona- Thanks, i'm on Oahu. Checked your build page. Hows the street ride with your susp. setup?

    Larry- Thanks also. i'm thinking 2.5 int he front as well, but not sure about the 5100s. The rear wheel pic shows the stock (blue) strut. I beleive the 5100s are silver,no?

    Anymore opinions?

    My future idea

    Since I still see the stock shocks, spacer and block lift would be my best guess... 2.5" up front 1.5" in the back. 275/70/18 is my best guess on the tire. I don't suggest that route at all though, but it is okay depending on what you plan to use your truck for. I have my OME setup just lying in my shop waiting for the weather to clear up so I can put it on.

    Right on guys. Thanks for your input.

    I have a 2012 db cab, i checked and i have 3 leaf spring. Should i wait for an updated TSB then get the AAL lift. I don't plan on hauling much. Is that important?
