    Is this a good choice for a 3" lift for a 2013 Tacoma? http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    I don't wheel much and if I do it's nothing crazy just a few trails in the woods where it gets muddy after a decent rain storm.

    I'm aware I'd need new UCA's as well are the light racing UCA's that toytec sells uniball or should I go with the icon uniball ones they sell for a couple $100 more? I also plan on getting the spidertraxx wheel spacers on all four wheels.

    That is a great lift for mild wheeling. The LR control arms will be fine for you. The uniballs are a little stronger but it doesn't sound like you are going to beat it.

    885s will give you 2.5+" & 884s will give you 2+"
    Dakars will give you 3" + or -. The make + plain and - and will usualy send you a matched pair. If you get a mixed pair put the bigger one on the driverside.
    I put 885s on my 4Banger AC and got 3" & Dakars got me 3" with my shell.
    After adding sliders & a full set of skids I lost 3/4" up front & 1/4" in rear.
    I added 1/4" spacers to regain 1/2" of what I lost up front.
    Love the ride both on & off road.
