    Readylift 18 inch VTEC 285/60/R18 Nitto Terra Grapplers BLACKED OUT Windows 4.10 Re-gear INSTALLED.
    2006 Tacoma SR5 5lug Base Access Cab (owned).

    Readylift already installed.

    Just added 285/65/R18 Nitto Terra Grappler

    It rides a little rough, I have disk brakes on the front, and drums on the rear. I am planning to replace the pads VERY soon. Anyone recommend any further mods to get better braking?

    Also, I want to know what I can do to get another inch or two in height? Shock options maybe?

    Thanks for the help!

    As a 5 lug, your only option for more hight on top of your ready lift is a body lift.

    what they said^

    unfortunately there are many options for lifting our trucks. here is a thread about most of the option for 2nd gen 5 luggers. i dont think there are any LT trucks 2nd gen 5 lug in there but that is an option but seeing that your in florida its not a very reasonable option since you wouldnt use it unless you wanted to drop all the dough just for the look...

    EDIT: oh and welcome to TW!

    You can add spindles on top of your spacer for more lift instead of BL...

    Ok... I found some shocks called "Bilstein 5100 Adjustable Shocks" for Tacomas. But I already have Readylift so will they still work?

    Any suggestions?

    No they won't work for 5-lugs...only 6 lugs.

    As I noted above, a body lift is your only option.
