    4 inch lift. Chrome grill package, 17" Chrome Plated Rims, 32 " Mickey Thompson Wheels, Westin Signature Chrome Side Step Bars, AEM Brute Force Cool Air Intake, Helix Power Tower Throttle Body Spacer, UGA Bulldog front floormats, Toyota Front Aluminum Skid Plate, Toyota Logo Bed Mat.
    I was looking forward to getting a total chaos long trail lift kit. But Ive heard that there have been some complaints of problems with the spring coils warping.??? WTF? and among other complaints, what are the downsides to this kit before I drop 4 Gs down on this investment.

    I dont think 6" increase in track width would be a hinderance. Many SAC Tacomas have a solid axel just as wide, if not wider than the TC LT kit.

    You will have to have some new fenders for the front if you want to maximize travel. Otherwise your tires will be limited by smashing your stock fenders.

    The kit is $3,000, plus 8" or 10" coilovers depending on how much work you want to do and how much travel you want which will run about $1300, and glassworks fenders up front which are like $400. Then the install will run about $600 and up depending how much you want to hack up your truck and it involves some welding for the limit straps.

    Also if your really looking into this check out Camburgs new kit. They came out with the newer, better version of their older kit. I know a a few people with it and they love it. It also can pull about and inch or two more travel then the TC kit.
