    Hey Tacoma Crowd,
    I'm trying to narrow down lift options and tire sizes based on performance, mpg, remaining hp and tranny concerns. So far I've come up with 3" body lift, 2" spacers, and 33's on a 15" rim.

    Here is what I've gotten for info so far:

    The truck on this link is sick. I wonder how it performs... and mpg...

    I do have a flowmaster with dump exhaust, running boards, and the ARE shell, with custom rack I'm selling on craiglist btw.



    Any thoughts, opinions, or other websitess would be appreciated. Experience is the greatest voice.... always.

    15" on a tacoma, will that clear calipers ? why not a 6" suspension lift, will ride much better.

    unless you plan on driving to and from the mall... i would ditch the entire idea. your gonna run into alot of probs with a 3in body lift. i am not a fan of spacers. or rear blocks for that matter. and i dont think a 15 in rim is gonna fit.

    I'm not sure how a 6" lift would look with 33"s. I don't want to have to regear or lose too much hp and mpg so i think the limit w' v6 is 33. What do you think?
