    Which lift kit would you get for a 2010 4x4 Double Cab S/B? I want to keep a low COG and run 33's. I will be wheeling on some pretty hardcore trails in the Georgia mountains so I need to keep 4 wheels on the ground as much as possible. So basically, I'm looking for the most badass set-up available right now. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Pictures would help too.

    If it were prerunner I would get spindles and get King/Fox/ICON resi front and rear with a deaver leaf pack. But that would probably cost you over 3 grand and in that case would probably just get Engage LT.

    Look how pretty mikes setup is.

    If money was not a factor, I would not run any lift. i would modify body mounts and bodywork as nescessary to run the 33s..actually if I was going that route, i would run 35". That give me greater clearance with the larger tires, but keeps my CG as low as possible.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    wheeling in the mountains of GA, I don't know if LT would be the ideal route to take as it increases the track width quite a bit although for IFS, it would give you a lot of travel and movement out on trails...

    as mentioned earlier, Wyatt's beast is an awesome way to go too

    maybe even SAS and linked front and rear...

    Okay, thanks for the info. I just got off the phone with Hasim @ Engage and I think we have a plan.

    Ready for the next challenge? Phase II - If money was not a factor, what is the best front/rear bumper and rock slider set up? I will need room for a winch and some PIAA's. The sliders should function as a step too...

    BTW, eventually the Taco has to look better than my Jeep:
