do a level off. 3" on the front and 1" on the back.

[iagree]

and stuff some 35s on it if youre just running it on pavement. with those trucks the 6" leveling kit kinda looks overkill. my 07 tundra was good with the 3"

I say do a SAS, then throw on sum 40's, remove the box, bob & tube the frame, then park it in the garage for 11 1/2 months of the year.

I hope this was helpful

Well If you want to keep the warranty on the thing, the tallest you cab lift it is 3.5 from factory, that's including a body or suspension lift. I just bought a 08' taco from the dealership and asked them what the limit was. I would get the trd suspension lift installed at the dealership, that way they will cover the suspension lift kit if it breaks.

with 3" lift u can only fit 33" on after market wheels.
You could fit 35" but u be trimming a lot.. also with 35" u may wane do the gears too.
6" lift fits 35", but gets pricy and u need to drop fornt diff, longer Aarms....

I just did a 3" OME on my 07 Taco with 33".
If you plan to get that lift kit leme know and I know a cheap place with discount code

What do those kits cost? I was thinking the same style lift for mine through the dealership.

why would warranty be affected by a lift at all?

because you are putting in parts that were not stock. the truck was built to run the way it came out of the factory. Not with the parts you decided to add in after the fact. Toyota seems to be good with the 3" lift and keeping everything under warranty. Go any bigger then there will be problems.
