    i just bought a new 2011 tacoma access cab 4x4 and im ready to lift it. i like the look of the 6" pro comp lift but i was told that the drop brackets are weak and i cant off road with them. i do plan to go off roading but nothing extreme. if anyone has any info on this or has the 6" pro comp and off road there tacoma, i would apprieciate any suggestions. my other option is the 3" icon lift but i like the 6" look better.

    Welcome.

    If you your not wheelin hard you should be fine with a drop bracket. You just get more ground clearance at the Diff with a 3" lift. and with a higher truck you risk rolling easier with the limited down travel of the IFS. Off camber is a little more ass puckering with a 6" lift on IFS

    I've wheeled mine a lot and never had a problem. Rides good around town and isn't a bad way to achieve lift

    Don't go over 1" on a BL there is too many problems with BL's over 1" if you want 6" of lift just get the drop bracket lift.

    yes some people crack their frame around body lifts. i highly suggest not going with a body lift.

    the 6 inch life is fine, just not as much clearance

    I second that. I had the procomp 6" for a couple years and wheeled it a good amount of times. Never had an issue
