    I didn't know god lifts tacomas. I would have gone to him first instead of Off Road Warehouse.

    J/k man. If money isn't an issue, and your looking for a solid 3-4inch lift... A Fabtech lift might meet your needs.

    However a wiser option IMO, altho you wouldn't get a solid 3 inches without a harsh ride, would be a set of coilovers and leaf packs.

    What's your intentions with the truck?

    Too add to what YouNext said, with the FabTech Lift you will have to CUT the crossmember, Once its gone.. It will be a B*&^ to put back.


    Like YouNext said Coils and a good leaf pack is the way to go, especially if you are going to wheel it any. I would rather see you put a BL on your truck than the DB lift (Drop Bracket), atleast that way you could remove it one day if you wanted too...:)

    Yep. LT = LONG Travel.
    Hell I have 16" of travel in the rear with only 1.5-2" of lift.

    So they just give you more flex or what? Is that when the shocks go through the bed of the truck?
