Tying together all the info for all the parts that Dobinsons makes for the 2nd and 3rd Gen Tacoma's here in this thread. If you have any technical questions about what each part is, what it does, specifics on it or anything more, please let me know.

All listed heights are for 4x4 Dual Cab Tacoma's 2005-2015 and 2016+
***Access cab 2016+ Tacoma's come 1" taller in the front than dual cabs, so take that into account when choosing lift heights. Lift heights listed are for dual cabs!!
