    Hey guys I got a couple of questions I have a 03 taco prerunner with a 2.5 inch spacer in the front that's what I have now. So these are my options I'm willing to do

    Going with the toytec ultimate lift kit and losing my spacers

    Or should I get the bilsteins adjustable shocks up front and set them to 2 inches and leave my spacer for 4.5 inch up front and get AAL up front


    Or should I go with a 3 inch suspension lift with a 2 inch body lift


    I also wanna run 33's. Need Help

    Do not run the billies with a spacer, or run a body lift. So my choice by default is the ultimate lift

    Fabtech 3" bodylift, Fabtech 3" adjustable coilover w/ 2" add-a-leafs. The bodylift helps out nice with working on the truck. If I had to do it all over again, I would STILL keep the same setup I have on here now. My bodylift has not caused me any problems at and I offroad pretty hard especially in hunting season.
