    so i got a 01 tacoma trd xtr cab 4x4 and i want to put some good suspension on it, along with a list of other stuff.

    im not looking for just a suspension lift though, i dont want to jack it up high. i would rather set it up for speed on access roads and open land. sort of a baja/prerunner style vision. so something that will have, i guess, good absorption and handling.

    so my question is what sort of suspension would best suit my need?
    what sort of set up should i be looking for?

    cheers

    sounds like shocks with resi's to keep them cool for those high speeds.

    yeah how are those foxs. what sort of driving do you do??
    i have also heard people talk about icons. the stage 2 system from icon seems legit, but i dont know if its just gonna be more of a lift and not offer a smooth ride over fast bumpy terrain.

    well, the ride is 10 times better that stock.mine had the trd shocks witch were ok i thought.im sure most adj.co ride great as well.but most my driving is done on these great pa roads.most of them r like driving thru plowed fields.lol.but the off road stability/handling is awsome.total control on the washboards.i highly recomend them if u can afford them.my 2.0 resis r adj. from 1(being like a caddy )to 8 (like f250) all by a thumb clicker.they r sweet.next investment is fox for the rear.
