    I have my truck for sale, but i am considering just keeping it and getting a RCD 4.5" lift. The best price i found for the lift was here: http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05uprcdtaco.htm

    I unfortunately do not have the know-how to install it myself, so i am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    I am in San Diego, CA. I called 4wheel parts and they told me they would not do it, and then proceeded to talk badly about RCD and then tried to sell me on the procomp 6" lift (which is an option as well. just not sure i want do a full 6")

    Any help would be appreciated!
    thanks,
    David

    I have been researching both. Seems to be good comments on both. Just curious why you choose the RCD over the Procomp....

    If they are still around, National Springs is in El Cajon. I havent been in CA in years but when they were open I knew a couple people that got their trucks lifted by them. Hopefully they are still open.

    From what I here the ride is sweet ... I really can't tell ya yet but the reason why people really don't pay for the rcd cuz from what see it's cuz people will go the cheap Way and they look at like I can pay 2,000 for 6" why pay that for 4.5. But from what I read the rcd lift better shocks and just better quality ... I'm sure this thread will keep going with other opinions

    I had the RCD lift on my 08 tacoma. Express performance center in santee installed it for me ( go ask for tony). Its a good lift, doesnt stress your cv joints and gives you more then enough clearance to do some pretty good wheeling. I ran 285/70/17 bfg at's on it and didnt have any rub chock to chock. Its worth the money and like i said, it retains that smooth factory ride.

    You will not be sorry with the RCD. It is by far the best money I ever spent on my truck. The ride on and offroad is just simply amazing.

    I may, but i will still have to pay tax since my billing/shipping address will be in CA.

    I am figuring out the details and will hopefully be ordering something next week if not today!


    Thanks for the feedback! Your truck looks awesome!

    Yes, but i will have to pay sales tax since we are both in CA. Sales tax in San Diego is 9.25% so that's an extra $166!
