DIFF DROP OR NOT I’m upgrading my lift kit from a budget Pro Comp kit to the Ironman 4x4 Foam Cell Full Kit (2–3-inch lift, new shocks, coils, full leaf pack, and carrier bearing drop kit) on my ’10 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab. The truck is my daily driver and weekend overlanding/camping rig. I don’t do any extreme offroading or rock crawling. Usually trails with softball-sized rocks at most.
