I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 and want to put a 6" FabTech lift on it with 35" tires. Someone told me that I am going to end up spending too much money on new gearing and other stuff. Am I getting in too deep? I don't know about that stuff so if anyone has an opinion on this, please let me know!

jennifer, I am doing the same lift and tire combo. But I am also adding a 1inch body lift to help clear my tires. First off the lift is around 1800 and then an other 500 for install. then for new tires and wheels you are looking at an other 1500. With the 35's your trucks rpms will be way out of stock range and if you want to be able to hit 5th gear again then you will need to regear(depending on your truck v-6 or 4 5speed or auto,and what stock gearing is) But a good bet would be 4.88's will get you back to stock. for that with install that is an other 1000. also your brakes,and if you have a(5speed) your clutch will wear out quicker and you will want to upgrade to better ones when that happens. clutch with install is around 500-800(this is for a good offroad clutch) and upgrade in brakes and rotors is 300-400 with install. 1800+500+1500+1000+1000= about 5500-6000 thousand$. IF you have 4.10 gearing then you can go wth 33's and not need to regear and that will save you 1200. But you still will lose some power. Anymore questions email me at redtoy92@hotmail.com :2cents:

I would just get a 4 inch procomp and 2 or 3 inch body, that way you wont have to worry bout the cv angles, and you can run 35's, but it would be good if you had 4:88 gears to bring you back close to stock gearing!

??? what are you talking about? so she doesn't have to worry about CV angle?? She was wanting to run the 6inch fabtech lift. It is the same type of lift as the pro comp(drop lift). the angles of CV and driveline will be about stock with the lift. If you think that pro-comp is the only one that lets you run over 3inchs and keep your angles stock, you should look around a little more. there is the 6inch trailmaster, 6inch fabtech, 4inch pro comp and the new 5 inch tuff country. red
