    Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to this site but not new to toyota trucks. I did however buy an '09 Tacoma new a few months ago. The other day i was playing in the snow, testing out my 4wheel drive and came across a problem, my tuck sits too low. So I've decided that I wanted to lift it, besides I just sold my 85 toyota PU and I no longer have a trail rig. So I did some research and decided on a 3'' ToyTec lift(884 coils and AALs). The only thing that concerns me is that i will have to do some ''trimming''. Now I looked this up a few times and the plastic trimming doesn't bother me but the cab mount trimming does. I know that i have to have 4.5 backspacing but is there any way i can get around this? if not i guess i will go with 32'' tires, is there any trimming involved there? Oh and if anyone can point me to the best price on some UCAs that would be great. Thank you for your time and any help/pics would be greatly appreciated.

    Fatbobs garage has light racing ucas for 370 plus shipping that's the chePest I've seen light racing. I ordered mine on a Monday and had them Wednesday. Fast shipping.

    Also I got 4.5bs and -12 offset and had to trim front and back fenders and wheel wells with 285/70/17. I don't rub cab mount at all.
