    I don’t know about loved. I will say that for what it was it handled well. I would recommend it if you have the off road with the bilstein 4600’s and you’re not extreme off-roading. It will make the ride stiff for the DD but allows you to fit the 285/75/16’s if that’s what you want. I didn’t have any issues with it.
    Would I do it again? No, only because of the stiff ride. I’d want a better ride for the DD and the capability off road.

    You can usually find the OME coils, 5100’s and an AAL for around $1000 or less depending on how much you want to search the deals. @whippersnapper02 posted a link to a company that sales the 5100’s at a good price. Install should be about $250-400 depending on the shop and how much they charge per hour. You should be able to do it for around $1500 or less.

    There’s this kit for $799 but it’s only 2”

    Since it’s brand new 2018, going with 5100s and AAL will it void warranty?

    This is what dealer is suggesting?
    Below are the the required parts for the Tacoma 3"- 1" lift.
    The representative from the company that we deal with called us back and was able to adjust the price to $1499 + tax.
    It includes wheel alignment and will give you a free rental for the day.
    And we will put it in writing that it will not affect your factory warranty.

    05-Current Toyota Tacoma
    Lift Height: 3 Inch front, 1 Inch rear
    Front lift method: Strut Spacer
    Rear lift method: Lift Blocks w/U-Bolts
    Includes: All necessary hardware & instructions
    Max Tire Size: 32x11.50 Inch
    Wheel Diameter: 16 Inch and Larger
    Wheel Width: 8 Inch to 9 Inch
    Backspace: 4 Inch to 5 Inch
    Requires wheel alignment after installation

    Seems high in price?

    Run! Run as fast from that as you can. Dealer lifts are garbage.

    Use the little magnifying glass. There's great alternatives to blocks and spacers that are just as budget minded.
