    ...but I'm looking for a lift kit for my 2011 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4. I plan to keep the stock wheels and tires. Also I really like the way the truck rides and drives right now so I'd like to keep the ride as close to the same as possible. What lift kit should I go with that will still look good with the stock wheels and ride well too? Thanks for any help!

    for a basic small lift to go with what im assuming are 265/70/16 tires, an AAL in the back and bilstien shocks all around set at 1.75 should level and give you a little bit without affecting your ride quality. . . actually, the shocks will improve it.

    yes that would be one way to go. you didn't post pictures of your truck or really specify all of your intentions (price for example) so i just posted the cheapest way to do a small lift. that one comes with aftermarket coils and options for more rear lift. you can use your stock coils if you just want a little lift, but if you are going for more than just to level and get an inch or so you will probably want coils because they also help your ride and make it "easier" on your shocks.

    and though you did specify it in your thread title, doing some searching will help a lot too. i don't even have a lift and just spending a lot of time on this site has given me the knowledge to tell you that info.

    oh, and welcome! :wave:

    5100 @ 1.75, tsb rear springs with 5100. anytime fogs, rear diff breather, 50 cal ammo boxes on bed rails
    OP if you have a TRD off road, I would recommend getting the eibach springs. I have an off road and set the shocks to 1.75 and honestly dont think the front shocks have any uptravel in them b/c the spring is so compressed. Literally I think all of my front travel is simply tire flex.

    I am either moving mine back down to the .85 setting or ordering the eibachs

    hope that helps

    Thanks for the input guys. I will probably just look into the 5100s. Won't be getting new tires though. No sense in replacing them when there's only 10k miles on my truck
