    What is your overall goal with the Tacoma? How do you plan on using your truck? Biggest question, what is your Budget?

    Why it's important knowing what your endgame is:

    > For offroading you want the minimum lift that will ultimately fit the tires you want. Big lifts just make your truck more prone to falling over. A good "moderate" lift with decent performance gains over stock would be bilstien 5100's on your stock coils with a rear add-a-leaf and 32 inch tires. 33's will fit, if you max out the billys, and maybe a bit of fender trimming. All this for around $400. I've been running 5100's on my 04 for about 6 years now. I'm about due for another upgrade, but this time going full coilovers (King, ICON...) etc... since my springs are all worn out.

    > For the "mall crawler/pavement princess" look, it doesn't really matter, go as high as you want. There's a lifts thread around here somewhere. Go thru that and look to see what you think looks cool, then go that route (as long as it's in your budget, lol).

    I just want my truck to look good with a nice lift and some nice tires.. just a daily driver. No off-roading or anything
