    Is there a 4'' lift for a 2011 Tacoma (SR5-PreRunner, 2wd). A person told that they dont make 4'' lift for this truck only 2'' and 6'' lifts. There are people who are telling me to get a 6'' lift and others saying it is recommended I get 5100's. Can the 5100's give me a 4'' lift?

    Look up RCD. I believe they have a 4.5" lift. And no, the 5100's cannot give you a 4" lift. I mean you can if you want to break your truck very easily. You can also look into getting spindles since you are a 2WD.

    No problem. I'm not super familiar with spindle lifts cause I am a 4WD but there are a good number of people on here that run those and they can answer that question better for you. Take your time on getting a lift cause there are many options out there. Are you going to be doing any serious off-roading? Is money an issue?

    spindles connect the knuckle to the upper control arm (UCA). 5100's with light racing UCA or Total Chaos UCA can get you about 3" in the front and toytec or Old man emu springs.

    Firefight no real offroading at this time but I do want to pimp this baby up. Money wise I dont see a problem but I do want something that is not going to mess up how my truck drives.

    McJosh, thanks man.... I am writing everything down....I will certainly look for the best option for my truck. I am certainly learning a lot in this site....

    Post pics of your truck!
    If all you want is looks and close to nice ride comfort, the 5100 deal is your best bet. They give a stocky (like a bulldog) look to a tacoma. Wheels and tires come next!

    McJosh, if I go with 5100's deal and you give me a list of the things I need to buy and from where, if possible. Thanks Man....

    Blacktacoma, you can you also give me a list of the things I could buy if I go with the spindles and where I can buy them.

    I will sure look into both of this options and see which one will satisfy my needs and my trucks...

    thanks guys.....

    I would stay away from drop bracket lifts (RCD is a drop bracket lift). For your truck spindles up front and a new leaf pack with 5100s for the rear will be a very good setup for 4" lift. I believe the rear. I beleive the rear 5100s will need to be the 5150s to be able to work with the full 4" lift.
