    :redxfall:I just got my taco a few months ago and I love it. I wanted to lift it but still keep it under warranty, I was wandering if anyone knows of a lift that the dealer can install to keep the warranty. The only thing that I was told that the dealership had was a leveling kit (3" front and 1" rear, and basically a body lift). If any one knows anything please let me know. I have never been a huge fan of body lifts, unfortunately I really want to keep it under warranty so if no one for sure I guess that's what i'll go with for now.

    Also best sized/type tire for dirt/sand and some mud, it is also my daily driver. Right now I have the stock tires for my type of truck (a/t 275x70x16, i believe) and they work pretty well so far, the only problem is mud (depending on how deep). I was thinking of just going with a slighty larger sized tire of what I have.

    Welcome to TW. The dealer cannot void your warranty. Google the magnusson-moss act. They can't void anything. they can deny your individual claim if they feel the aftermarket parts caused the failure though.

    The leveling kits they sell are likely top plate or coil spacers for the front, and blocks for the rear. It's not a body lift, but those types of lifts are known to damage suspension components more so than a traditional lift with new springs and shocks.

    Your stock tires size is 265/70/16, not 275.

    You can go up to 265/75/16 on stock suspension, or with the 3" lift and properly backspaced wheels, you an do 285/75/16.

    Please search around a bit here and you'll find all sorts of good info on lifts.
