suspension lift or body lift which is easiet to install?

Hi im thinking of just going with a 3" suspension lift but would i be able to run bigger tires? if so what would be the highest i could use maybe like 35's or is that to big?

Or should i do a body lift?

money is not really a issue here so what would u recomend? is ebay kits good or junk im doing it for show and not really for extreme off roading

Get the ultimate lift kit from toy tech. You DEFINITELY want a suspension, not body. Whatever you choose, get a good set of coilovers and an AAL for the rear

If money isnt really an issue, go with a good set of coilovers, some rear shocks and a set of deaver rear leaf springs, throw some Total chaos upper control arms and your set

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

just don't do it. problem solved.

if you want to lift it, especially 3 inches, get an aal and coilovers. looks better, safer, and better all around.

Well that kinda depends on what you want.
If you just want like a one stop shop, you can do something like this:
http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/prod...roductID/50906

That get's you a set of Fox Mid Travel Coilovers with RR, TC UCA, and Fox rear shocks with RR.

Only thing that kit doesn't come with would be rear lift. You can either do something simple like a AAL or something nice like a Deaver spring pack.

I'd say take a stroll through wheelers website and take a look at their different options as they offer some pretty good packages. http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/9504tacoma.htm
