    6" is just too high for my taste i really like the looks of the 4.5 i just wasnt sure if anyone has had any issues with it, or if it will look funny with that small of a tire

    The RCD lift is one of the better drop bracket lifts out there.

    Its not on our site yet, but I can get you a good price on the RCD lift. They are a great company with good quality products. We can also get you some longer shocks or Coilovers for the front for improved offroad perfomance.

    sold Tacoma, driving a Ford Raptor now.
    I received notice today in the following email that the RCD 4.5 lift is now available for the 09 models with VSC option.

    Email---------------------------------------------------

    Our 4.5”-5” suspension system for the 05-09 Toyota Tacoma 4wd & 2wd PreRunner models is now available. The system is part #10-47405. The system comes complete with a two-piece lower sub-frame assembly with integrated differential skid plate and polished stainless steel anti-compression struts, CNC machined replacement cast iron steering knuckles, heavy-duty front differential brackets, front sway bar drops, front bump-stop extension brackets, front and rear brake line extension brackets, 4” rear lift blocks, rear u-bolts with hardware and two front and two rear Bilstein 5100 Series shock absorbers. Clears up to a 33”x12.50” tire on 8” wide wheels. Requires wheels with a maximum of 4.5” of backspacing. I have also attached a kit photo, vehicle photo and a copy of the installation instructions.

    Vehicles equipped with the factory Toyota VSC system will need to be recalibrated by a qualified technician after installation of the suspension system and realignment of the front end. The VSC system may be more sensitive compared to stock form with the system installed.

    If you have any questions or need any further information please feel free to e-mail me back, or you can also give us a call toll free at (866) 469-7257.

    Thank you for the inquiry.
