I wanna know what routes I could go suspension-wise. I have 285/75/16s currently and I want something better than the stock suspension with a spacer lift. I get a bunch of trash talk when people ask why I run spacers and off-road. Should I go for something cheap or should I go all out? Any suggestions are welcome

A lot will depend on your idea of what off-roading is. High speed desert runs? Slow rock crawling? Fire roads?
When it comes down to it though, ANYTHING is better than a spacer lift IMO.
Spacer lifts are the padded bra of suspension.

Yeah that’s true. I see myself doing a combination of the three tbh. I like going to the dunes in my truck as well as taking my truck out to crawl spots to hit some trials. That’s the problem I have is I do a little bit of everything when it comes to off-roading in my truck

Go full retard man! I'd personally go with ICON 2.5" with resis and ICON RXT rear suspension. Oh wait, that's what I did! (y)

Here's what I went with and I couldn't be happier on, and off-road!

I’m also a fan of Icon’s. They get a lot of unwarranted hate in other forums because mouth breathers install incorrectly and then blame the manufacturer for their mistake. Icon has been nothing but stellar and helpful to me. I have their 2.5 w/resis in the front and 2.0 w/resis in the back. For what I do on my truck (mostly desert dirt roads), they are perfect.

Truth! Mine were installed correctly but I still don't understand the hate for ICON on those other forums. They're loaded with mostly King, and some Fox fanboys that can't stand anything ICON. I don't have any hate for King or Fox, to each his own, I just prefer my ICONs over anything else. I've hammered my ICONs on, and off road for the last 10k miles and they don't feel any different than they did when I got them. Plus, being my DD, I don't ever worry about fucking my suspension up off-road cuz I know the quality that goes into them. And if anything ever did happen to them, I know for a fact that they take care of their customers! (y)

So you've narrowed down use, what's your budget?

Yeah, Fox and King both have 3.0s for our trucks now.

Unless someone had custom made (which would be tough because Fox doesn't do much custom stuff without being volume), they do not and have no plans on doing anything 3.0 for the Toyota platforms. They are working on a new 3.0 internal bypass but it is not a Toyota product.

You mean someone on TacomaWorld gave bad info?
