    I have a 09 DC Taco and I want to get bigger tires on it I have checked around the forms and haven't found the exact answer I'm looking for so I'm wondering if anyone can help me out. I am a broke college student so money sadly is a big issue I'm looking for the cheapest way to get a 3 in lift Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks taco world

    cheapest way would be front spacer and rear block I believe. But almost none on here would reccomend that because it decreases ride quality. Do some more searching though cause theres tons of threads on this subject

    35% tint, TRD skidplate, whether techs, AFE-stage 2 intake, 5100's set at 0, eibach springs,17'' atx crawl,265/70/17 nitto trail grapplers, color matched grill
    cheapest way to get a decent 3'' lift is billstein 5100's all around, and an add-a-leaf. but with any 3'' lift you may end up needing aftermarket upper control arms to get alignment back into spec and you run the risk of vibes...which can also end up costing you more. hope this helps

    X2. Billy's for the front, aal for the back. There you go for less than the cost of some spacer/block kits.

    And if you stay at 2.5" of lift, you may not need new ucas.
