    I have an 06 tacoma and am not sure what type of mid travel kit to get. I want an upper arm with coil overs in the front. And maybe deavers in the back with shocks. Im looking for a smoother ride offroad but not insane travel for a shit load of money. Anything would be helpful. Thank you :cheers: Im also looking to make the front end sit a few inches over level.

    What is your price range? That is basically the deciding factor in what to get.

    Basically pick your poison.

    Adjustable coilovers (King, Fox, ICON, Camburg, SAW, etc.)
    UCA's (TC, Camburg, Light Racing)
    Rear shocks (5100's, 5125's, IVD, Fox, SAW, etc)
    Springs (AAL, TSB, Deaver, Alcan, AP, etc.)

    Right now I have Icon ext travel coilovers with total chaos uca's in front and 5100's and AAL in the rear. My next step suspension wise is to get an All Pro leaf pack and some rear resi shocks and might eventually replace my front coilovers with resi's as well (most likely King).

    Me to I think sorta, Im so indecisive but this option is the most practical for me. My 885s are sitting at a little less then 2 after 3 months, I should have gotten 886s but I didn't think about the extra weight from the supercharger 100 pounds in the engine bay sags pretty good.

    I would look at Camburg Upper arms or Total Chaos Upper arms, and for the coil overs, the camburg c/o or fox's.

    Probably around 2 grand to your door. 1300ish for the COs and 650 for the UCAs. if your interested talk to downsouthmotorsports they can get you a good deal.

    I like them off-road, but on road not so much. I think I have them cranked up to high, so I'll be cranking them down a bit and getting an alignment to see how they ride.

    ~$2000 Talk to Sonny at Down South Motorsports if you want to go that route. He will give you a little discount IIRC.

    Don't stack lifts! Very bad idea. You're just asking to break things.

    I bought the grill already made, but there are some write-ups around and I have heard it isn't difficult if you take your time and do good prep. The gauges were done by PreRunnerSeth. He does them at Nor Cal mod days and will also do them if you ship them out. I think his turn around time is around 2 or 3 days.
