    I want to lift my truck 3in to be able to run 285/50/20 Tarra Grapplers with no or little rub.
    I have a 2005 4x4 4 door long bed truck.

    I just got Front adjustable Bilstein 5100s Coil over kit w/ eibach springs and TC UCAs. What all will I need besides what I got? What will I need for the Front and the and the Back? I do hall a 21 foot fish Master With my truck so what will be the best for the back and the cheapest?

    For the money I recommend a full length add-a-leaf kit. By installing the additional spring in the rear it will both increase the ride height and add additional payload capacity as well. Follow it up with a set of Bilstein 5100 rear shocks to control the ride under load-We sell the add-a-leaf kits to our members for a discounted price of $72.65 with free shipping and the rear 5100's for $159.98 a pair shipped as well. The rear shocks are made specifically for Tacoma's with additional 1.5" of lift.

    Also to add to the rear add-a-leaf depending on how much tongue weight the boat has Firestone makes a rear towing air bag set up that works great! The bags are not to lift the vehicle but to level the truck out under weight. The true benefit is that they do not change the ride characteristics while unloaded- with a simple deflate the ride is back to stock! Kits go for about $299.00 with all mounting and air lines included...
