    I have a little extra money in the bank from overtime and i'm looking to get a small lift. I was looking at the toytec 3" lift. It was an AAL in the rear and new coils upfront.

    The questions i have are:

    There are 3 different options for coils. 884, 885, and 886. What is the difference between the 3 and do i need the top plate spacer.

    I have xd addicts 17x9 wheels with some fender trimming. With these, what is the best tire size to go with and biggest i can fit

    Should i get a diff drop? Even if i don't absolutely require one, would it be a good idea to get one?

    Thanks in advance for all the help​

    The 884, 885, 886 are just the spring ratings ie how much weight they are rated for... Your an access cab so you'll need the 884 if you plan on getting a plate bumper or winch you could get away with the 885's...... the top plate spacer will give you the full 3 inches of lift advertised...... Pass on the diff drop and save yourself 30 bucks they dont do anything on 2nd gen taco's.... As for tires you'll be able to fit 285's or true 33's as well HOWEVER if you wanna pull in major bro hoes you can run 35's with a shit ton of trimming lol

    2" lift AAL and Bilstiens-front-rear,front diff drop. main drive drop
    I did Bilstiens-all the way around=aal in the back-Because I haul stuff.
    Pleased w/the ride too.
    If you do the biilys--use the HIGHEST setting on the front.
    Not sure on the secnd gen--works well on the 1st gen.

    3" OME lift 885s & Dakars riding on 33" KM2s Click the sig pic to see the build thread .
    884s & 885s are the same spring rate but the 885s are a little longer.
    885s gave my 4Banger AC 3" & gave OZ's DCLB 2.5". You'll probaly get around 2.75" with out a spacer.
    If you get/have a plate bumper and/or winch you might want the spacers.
    Just say no to 2nd gen diff drops.

    A spacer will give you twice the thickness of the spacer in lift.
    So 1/8" will give you 1/4" & 1/4" will give you 1/2" of lift.

    Ok sweet.. I'll have my truck in the garage soon for new brakes, a short throw shifter and to replace a bad wheel speed sensor so I may just do the lift when its in. This overtime money is burning a hole in my pocket
