    Ok heres the deal... I have a 2009 Toyota Tacoma 4 door 4x4 and I am looking for the perfect lift. I dont want to go above 4" something like 2" or 3" suspension lift would be perfect. I have reviewed the RevTek and Rough Country Lifts but I am flat out unsure. my tires are p265/65r17 stock I really would like to put cooper discoverer stt on with the Moto Metal 951. The problems I am hearing are wheel well trimming which i dont want to do at all, and my stock rims are 17x7.5 and the moto metals are 17x9 ( will they fit)>? Can somebody please HELP.....

    Lots of folks can help.

    The backspacing/offset are different on those MotoMetals. As long as the offset is between 0 and -12 you should be good...That makes a backspace of about 4.5 inches or less. Those will help you with the trimming.

    As far as lifts...Tons of options. I just ordered Old Man Emu Parts for my truck....Toytec makes good stuff...As does Camburg, Icon, and SAW. Look around at some of the suspension threads about the pros and cons of each and then roll the dice!!

    Welcome to the board...Enjoy!!

    Welcome to Tacoma World!

    There are ALOT of lifts out there. Check out some of the members trucks, ask them what they think of them, and what they use their truck for. THEN, ASk yourself what you want from the lift. We are here to help you make an informed desision. :)

    I run 275/70/17 MTRs, and didn't have to trim my fenders or remove my mudflaps. MY set up is 3" Revtek, rear leaf spring TSB W/ AddALeaf-AAL. As for lifts I suggest Toytech, Pro Comp, Revtek. Good Luck.
