    I'm getting a 2019 trd off road and looking to get it lifted and 33 all terrain tires put on. I'm not looking for the best of the best, just some reasonable priced lift and tires to go off roading in the Colorado mountains every now and then. I don't know a lot about trucks so whatever you guys suggest would work.

    I don’t have the knowledge to help you but I just want say welcome to the forum. Your question is a real common one here so you can try the search function or sit tight and wait for a personal answer. There’s a few really savvy guys on here that will probably get you your answer fairly soon. Good luck.

    What’s reasonably priced? $1000? $2000? $5000?
    Subjectively speaking...
    Bilstein 5100’s all around set at 2.5” in front and a progressive AAL on back works for fitting 33” tires. You’ll need wheel spacers or aftermarket wheels with a lower offset to clear the UCA’s.
    There is a good OME kits for around $1200

    Not necessarily the OEM should get the Alignment. I had 3” and was able to get alignment with the OEM UCA.

    if its a 4wd a leveling kit with about a 32' tire will give it a tough little look:)
    but if its a 2wd...idk
    pro comp makes a good leveling kit, just put one on a tundra and it made a huge difference

    I'm looking to spend around a grand for the lift and around 200-250 on tires

    So you think 32 inch tires would be better than 33? And what size lift would you suggest

    200-250 apiece on tires or $200-250 total?

    Toyota Tacoma 4WD Full Leveling Lift Kit with Bilstein 4600 Struts - 3" Front 2" Rear

    Found this kit on amazon for my 2018 Tacoma SR5, was wondering if this is a good deal and looking for any suggestions. I’m not looking to spend a fortune, but also don’t want to put a **** kit on my truck either .

    That's just spacers and blocks. I would spend a little more for an AAL and new lift coils for the front as well as some bilstein 5100 shocks. Lots of threads about different lift options on this site if you use the search feature.

    i own a 2015 tacoma 4wd. I ordered the bilstein 5100 front pair and rear (335/ amazon). installed myself, used the stock coils and dialed the front to 2.75 or the highest setting. after that saw i needed a block in the back so i got the 1 inch and modified the u bolts( cutt them to proper length so it wouldn't look weird or drag the ground if off road. ive never installed a lift kit in my life and it was the first one, relativity easy for me, took about 4-5 hours. purchased 285/70-17 on stock rim so i ordered 1.25'' center hub spacers... CENTER HUB. after install and tire mount and alignment had to take off the front mud flap thing its about 4 inches long and 3 inches tall and also the front back mud flaps. after that no rubbing whatsoever even on a flex. the truck rides very well almost like stock and the tires i purchased ( nitto ridge grapplers) aggressive allterrain, these tires are hands down the best ones ive ever had and ive had alot. Quiet as can be, im at 70,000 miles on them now and i still have half tread its unbelievable and i drive the ruck outta my truck. (only 2 tire rotations). The only thing i would consider is the 6100 bilstein front shocks, thicker diameter and longer travel or extension. other than that im very pleased with this mod and it was very very cheap (consider i get my tires at cost) but everything i purchased what from amazon except the blocks, autozone if i remember correctly, didnt add the 2 degree deal for the rear blocks, one inch in rear did not need as the diff was bearly pitched. spacers were nessassary as the inside of the tire was less and half a pinkie distance away from the upper control arm. 1.25 was all needed. best lift for the money and without having to get upper control arms...etc. All together $400 for lift, spacers and blocks. an okay inexpensive tire my cousin uses are called Kenda i believe there like 95 a peice for 285/70/17
