    TRD mats and seat covers, smoked tail lights, smoked turn signal corners, Revtek lift, Access LE tonnaeu, HIDs, grillcraft mesh grill, TRD CAI, custom bike racks, Alpine system.
    I was wondering if some of the members could give some long term updates on how their lift has been performing, and more importantly how the tacoma is handling being lifted?

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    Well, my Taco has been put through 21K miles with my 3" EZ lift with diff drop from extremetrucktoys.com and everything is still good here. Might be switching to CO's or doing a 6" when the bank account allows so there will probably be more reports from me.

    Oh Yeah!!!
    Still looks beter than stock but noticing more rubing when going up curbs, and also my driveeway. Some factors depends on speed and aproach. But, I've noticed that these obsticles need a more cautious aproach since first installed. I say TRD Coils settled and I need to upgrade.

    Is this My constant need for improvement, or maybe 33's on a Taco w/minor trimming is good at first until the stock springs settle, then all the noise in the neighborhood come out to play.

    What you all think???

    Had my lift for 1 year now. No noticeable negative side affects. I would like to eventually move on to coil-overs, since the spacer lift doesn't do anything for suspension articulation.

    edit: I also have the differential drop spacers.
