    3” lift on 35’s
    Hello, I'm a former Tacoma owner from TacomaWorld. Just sold my prerunner and now moving up to the Tundra next week. I'm getting a 2014 TSS off road crew max. It already has a 6-7"pro comp lift with 35"s and immediately I want to lower it. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome aboard. You're gonna love going to a Tundra. Tacomas are great (I own one), but if your looking for 1/2 ton performance...it just can't be beat.

    Welcome from TN! If nothing has been cut (which is the norm for lifted trucks that high) it should just be a matter of replacing the coilovers and various parts added for lift, but if anything has been cut or fabricated, it wouldn't be worth it to lower it financially.

    Thank you all! I can't wait to make the move up. I went yesterday and looked at the truck, drove it around. First impressions, holy cow this thing is huge! From what I could tell it's all bolted on. Nothing has been cut. I hope. And yes I just want a 3" lift on at the most. Thanks again.

    Yeah I want to lower the amount of lift. Bad thing is I don't have the factory spindles and what ever else they had to change out

    Welcome from another fellow Texan. Can you tell what brand of lift you have? Post some pics so we can see what size lift you have.

    I thought the procomp required cutting.

    Look around on Craigslist and ask around here for those that are upgrading to 6". They will have the spindles for you, most likely cheap.

    Check out Toytec for the 3" lift. I have the Boss now and love it.

    Thanks for the love. I'll try to get pics soon. I've been super busy. I hope they didn't cut anything already! Yeah I've been looking at the boss lift. I've read good things about it.

    I asked the guy I'm buying from if anything was cut for the lift. He says no so I'm hoping not. I do know it has coil spacers on the front so I'm guessing it just a stage one.

    Thanks. Yeah the Tacoma was a fun build
    but she was just a 2wd. I've been wanting a 4x4 for a while to explore deeper into the wilderness. I was back n forth on a new Tacoma for sometime, did a lot of research on them and decided to make the leap to the Tundra! More power and room I need.
