    Hey guys just got my first Tacoma 2011 double cab TRD sport unfortunately is not 4x4. So far this truck feels amazing compare to my previous truck I had a 06 chevy Duramax on 38's with 10" lift. Well I know nothing about this trucks if any 1 can feed me some Info on them it be great thanks
    How much of a difference would it be going from stock suspencion to the King shocks all 4 corners??

    its not unfortunate to have 2wd......

    about the suspension, what would you want? OEM replacement or a true mid travel set up or fully long travel? yyou have tons of options on the market with tacomas. and remember, king isnt the only company that makes high quality COs.. check out icons if you get the chance

    thanks for the welcoming. Might sound kind of dumb but can you guys break down what that means mid travel or long? I never owned a Tacoma before and i luv the way it rides now stock this will be my daily driver, i want to see if i can keep the MPG the way they are or try to improve them. what kind of set up would you guys recomend if i want to have a super smoth ride and at the same time a little lift 3" with nice mean looking tires? and again dont want to loose MPG?

    Mean tires - MT tires = mpg loss but they look bad ass

    King suspension will be good on all corners
