    Hey guys, i am lookin into buying a gen 1 single cab tacoma. im really just wanting something to hunt out of. What are my best options to get 35" tires on one of these? A lot of the 5 and 6 inch lift kits i have seen say they wont work with 4cyl engines. any suggestions would help. Thanks

    they will work with 4 cylinders? you will just need to re gear with 35s..

    You could get a lot better 3" kit for the price of a 6" drop-bracket setup.

    i have an 08 double cab with a three inch kit and love it. im guessing 33's would be a max on a three inch lift. I guess i could do a 3"body and 3" susp to fit 35's alot cheaper.

    Yeah, with all due respect, are you really sure you want to run 35" tires? That's a lot of tire to be pushing around with a four banger (even regeared) and you're gonna rub like a mofo unless you run a 6" drop-bracket lift.

    For your stated purpose of hunting a 3" lift with 33" tires makes a pretty capable truck on a short wheelbase std cab.
