Ihave heard nothing but great things about it. I got everything coming to my door step for only 1671.00 and they are sending me a 100.00 gift card a couple of days after they ship my order, this company has alot of stuff ofr any truck out there and great prices, next will be intake any sugg's from everyone on what kind I shoud get?

So you order the lift kit first, and then ask for information about it to see if it's a good kit?

I've also read alot on here that the 16" Helo Max 6's don't fit as well.

Hans,

is that a fact or just hear say?
just what i heard. I was going to buy helo max 16x8 because they were extremely cheap, but I was told they will not clear the caliper. NorCalTacoma is the resident wheel expert here, maybe you can wait until he chimes in.

17x9 will fit... just make sure to check the backspacing

I looked at the skyjacker kit and it may work just fine, looks like it could be a pain
to install, I think autozone will do the spring compressions for you for a few extra bucks.
Let us know how it goes. -tmoore

Norcal Tacoma,

Thanks for giving me that as well as everyone else, will do tomorrow, I think I read something on this site not to long ago about the hub bore should not be over 100 is that correct? and what kind of #'s should I be looking for on backspacing?

Thanks,

Bill

I think the general recommendation for backspacing is 4.5" or more... the Maxx 6's in 17x9 work

Helo Black Maxx 6 16" wheels won't fit.. however Helo Black Maxx 8 16" wheels will fit... depends on which wheel it is...
