    I have read almost every thing there is to read on lifting my tacoma. I'm leaning towards a 6" Procomp stage 2. If someone had side by side picture of a stock tacoma, a 3", and 6" tacoma that would help push me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.

    I put a 3 inch daystar leveling kit, and am very pleased! I threw some 33's on their and a 1/4 inch spacer in the front and it eliminated 95% of my rubing problems. Slight vibration in the front end, but nothing to worry about. Over all i am very happy with my buy!

    Yah, I know I've seen some sick tacomas lifted 6". I want to see them side by side though. There are a lot before and after pictures but I can't find any with all three sizes in the same picture.

    3 inches. 6 inches is pretty dumb in my honest opinion, but it's your ride.

    I like the Tacoma with a 6" lift on them. Here's a thread dedicated to 3/6" lift pros/cons discussion.
