    Not very knowledgeable about lift kits , so what should I be looking to get or know about lift kits? Don’t plan to do any off road more just for looks and to be higher. Tires for this also would be helpful
    Thinking a 3 in lift? Pros / cons Thanks

    Thank you. Up to 3000$ if I’m being realistic..
     
  7. If your looking for a lift but not a huge lift, ReadyLift SST kits work great. They're kind of a leveling kit. Got 3" lift in the front and 2" lift in the back. I've got 17" Black KMC Machete wheels with - 38 offset and 3.5 backspacing. Also bought 2"Bora wheel spacers to give it a meaner looking stance and 285/75R17 (33's) Bf Goodrich A/T KO2 tires. The ReadyLift kit will cost you about $200-$250 plus labor. My tires I got done for $200 a wheel installed. That was the price of the tire and all the mounting and balancing and installation.

    5100s all around with a AAL in the back.You'll thank me later for not sending you the spacer lift route.

    If you're 2wd, you can use spindles up front for about 4 inches of lift. Then you need a leaf pack out back for lift.

  9. Nothing wrong with blocks and spacers. You'll keep your original ride quality.

    Spacers move the coilover down which causes it to bottom out internally before the control arm hit's the bump stop. This has caused many people to bend their shocks even on the road. Go too fast on a dip you don't see and boom.

    Blocks add to axle wrap which is already an issue with Tacomas.

    I’d look into an OME kit or go with the 5100’s like @whippersnapper02 said.
    @Crawdad has the friends don’t let friends run spacers ad.

    Thoughts on dealer doing it ? Thanks

    The dealer is just going to sell you what they carry which is usually Revtek which is also just a spacer lift. Find a competent offroad shop or get to know local members.
