    Just look around the site man...like the suspension section. Tons of ideas for every budget and taste...Start there and then if you have any specific questions...Fire away.

    It really depends what u plan on doing... if u wanna go hard core or just light wheeling... but looking in the suspension section is a good place to start... mid travel/long travel both have lots of good info

    I had the vibes with my 2012 then lifted it and the vibe is gone. So you really never know what will happen till you do it. Personally I really like the RCD lift.

    depends how much lift you are going for, if you get driveline vibes you will probably need to get the bracket that lowers the carrier bearing. I had more of a shutter after my lift, slow speeds from 1-10 mph. Got a bracket from beefed taco that lowers the carrier bearing, he has a few different sizes but it depends on how much lift you have

    if you still have vibes shims might help

    How do you like the 5100s bilsteins? What model Tacoma you have. Usually I hear most ppl with double cab 4x4s having driveline vibes
