5 inch tough country????

Im looking at lifting my 2000 tacoma and looking at the 5 inch tough country. Was wondering if anyone has the lift and how do they like it. I cant justify paying another 800 for the 6 inch fabtech. Any suggestions are helpful thanks

I have a 2000 tacoma 4x4 I lifted with C/Os, OME rear springs and a 2" roger brown body lift, I run 33" tires and love the way it rides. I just purchased a 2004 tacoma TRD 4 door three weeks ago and have been researching bracket lifts as I want to run 35s on this one, I have read quite a few articles and reviews about procomp, fabtech and tuff country, I will be ordering the Tuff Country sometime next month.

We have installed plenty of brands of lifts. They are all very similar. Fabtech and Tuff Country have been popular..... They are both good stuff, but I dont know why pay the extra $$ for pretty much the same kit.

Here is 7" of lift.....
