    Billies on all four corners with daystar spacer lift. Bought it like this. Replacing done with toytec ultimate 3" lift
    I am going to be purchasing a 2007 trd sport w/ a 6 in fabtech db lift. It has 4 or 5 inch blocks in the rear and I am wondering what I can do to replace them. I will be pulling a trailer, mostly on weekends, that will have about 2500 lbs on it and maybe more. I will also be taking the truck on trails that really test the trucks abilities, so I am wanting to have flex as well.
    This is the type of trails I will be going on. This is Gatortaco92's 1st gen dc with a 3" spacer lift up front and aal in the rear

    These two videos will give you a better idea. The pre-taco is my previous truck, sold it because it needed more work than i had the funds for. The 1st gen is my brother (Gatortaco92).

    All Pro Expedition leaf packs will give you about 4-4.5" unloaded and are meant to carry a heavy load. Otherwise, as mentioned above, a custom leaf pack or the OMD method would work.

    Well it turns out that I will not be purchasing said truck above. The payments on it were too expensive for my liking. I know I probably won't find another deal like this one but I have to pass it up. I will still be looking into another taco, whether it be a 1st gen or 2nd gen. I appreciate everyone getting back to me.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    You're better off not buying it.
    No way would I buy one that had been rolling a 6" lift.
    Just asking for problems.

    It's still good advice for buying a used vehicle...

    I understand that. I had said that I wasn't going to be purchasing it before he posted that. I am still lookin for a Taco it just won't berth one. I might go stock or a mild lift. No DB lift for me.

    You got that right!!

    You're better off getting a stock truck and adding a mild lift yourself. That way, you know what the lift is and how it was installed. Don't go with a large lift if you're towing....
