    I have an 09 tacoma and Im wanting to lift it here in a couple weeks. I wanted to go with a procomp 3" lift which can fit 33's. Only problem is I just bought new tires this summer that are 31's. I have no clue if itll look dumb or ok. Ive also been looking at the 6 inch lift but i feel like the 31's on there would look weak. Just dont have the money right now to buy 33's for the 3 inch lift or 35's for the 6 inch! what do ya'll think?

    cant look any worse than the guy that lowered his 4x4. i'd go with 3" lift and worry about tires later.

    sorry for the repeat thread i just joined today, still learning. But I've read good and bad things about it. seems like every lift company had pros and cons. none seem to stand out as excellent all around. maybe im looking in the wrong spot?

    The procomp is among the more uncomfortable 3" lifts you can get due to their excessive front spring rate paired with twin-tube shocks. I just wanted to make sure you we aware of that.

    Bilstein 5100s paired with eibachs springs, or an OME spring/shock kit would be a better choice.
