    Hey everyone,

    Just curious, if you had the time and money to install a nine inch lift, would you? I plan on installing a six inch lift in my Tacoma soon and was actually considering adding three inch coli spacers also for a total of nine inches (along with other considerations) and running 35 or 37 inch tires. I am looking for friendly feed back from everyone on this topic because I am having a hard time deciding. I am aware that such a build is not exactly practical but my goal would be to build a Tacoma that is rare.

    I would appreciate a yes or no and your reasons for your decision.

    Thanks for your time.

    You can get a 4 inch lift spindle and get 13 inches if you want. But just because you can doesn't always mean you should.

    I don't think I follow what you are trying to do-9 inches is ALOT of lift for these trucks....and not really worth it for a daily driver.
