    so i need help deciding what i should get.
    i like both the camburg LT kit and the tc LT kit. both are in the same price range and both offer the same amount of travel and widen the truck the same amount. but there is also the Camburg race kit which offers 20 inches of travel but is triple the price. so i need help deciding.

    like they are all very great kits and they are all very very durable

    i think 20 inches of travel would be too much especially if your still using the truck on street and like driving around town

    If you can afford it, defiantly go with the Camburg Race Kit. Camburg stuff is amazing. The Wilwood disks it comes with will stop the truck on a dime. The kit will not just bolt on and give you 20" of travel. You need to do some big modifications to the front of the truck. If you want to go with the race kit, Camburg will probably recommend you make an engine cage and mount the coilovers to that. Camburgs site doesn't say what size coilovers you need to get in order to run the kit but if you get an engine cage you will be looking at a 12" to maybe a 14" coilover. Without the engine cage you will have an 8" or if you hack up the coilbuckets you could get a 10" coilover. You will probably be looking at 10k for your front if you go with the race kit. If you get bypasses and bumps it will be several thousand more. You could install the whole thing yourself and save yourself a good amount of money but you would need some good fab experience. Also, don't forget a set of glass.

    If you have the cash and plans to build your truck exclusively for off-road use, go with the race kit. It'll take whatever abuse you throw at it and you won't regret not buying it when you want more than 13" of travel.

    Definitely consider installation costs. Fabrication work isn't cheap but given that you're considering linking the rear I'll assume you're already aware. :)

    This is the ESB Fab front end.


    http://www.richerracing.com/Pages/Products/96_04_ToyotaTacoma.html
    Richerracing's kit is also great. They are located in Oceanside, CA. REally good company.

    DMZ is also a really good fab shop. He is in Corona, CA.

    Hope some of this helped.

    for a pre 05, im running the Engage kit...

    16" of travel and based on an actual tacoma race truck (1482)...

    so far, i have tested it out in the Mojave on 3 trips from stateline to barstow upwards of 55mph through sandy washes, rocky hills, and hucking it on whoops...

    we will be back out in Lucerne weekend of 4/25 if you would want to see the kit up close and in action...

    +1 for engage, I'm saving up for that kit, and Jerry has been great corresponding with me. I have enough for TC or Camburg, but from reading up Jerry's threads, I am sold.

    If your going to do the 4 link setup in the rear you might as well get the 20" of travel.
