Do they make lifts for those? You have one don't you?
Don't be ridiculous... of course they don't make a lift kit for the Prius...

They do however make a pretty sweet lift for the smart car though

Careful man... there are rednecks anywhere you go. They might speak with different accents but they all pull the same stupid antics and I promise you that none of them involve naked men and farm animals... Those are the village idiots, there is a BIG difference and they are NOT to be confused.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I wasn't offended about the doing something stupid... I'm an upstate NY redneck and I took offense to the farm animal bit!

I live in VA for a while also and I fit right in with the good ol boys down there which proves my theory... there are rednecks everywhere you go and they're pretty much all the same, they just talk funny in certain parts of the US.

Depends on how tall you go. If you keep the tires somewhat responsible, like 285's, then you'll be fine with your stock gears. You will need to have the dealership to reset your ECU for the taller tires otherwise your skid control will start acting up (even on dry roads it will act up so make sure you do that shortly after you get taller tires).

For blowers, check out the TRD or Underdog Racing Development. I don't have a blower but both seem to have their pros/cons.

Downsouth Motorsports is probably the cheapest. They don't have OME stuff on their website but I'm 99% sure they carry it.

If you go with 886's, make sure you put some weight on the front end fairly quickly. It'll ride like a dump truck unloaded.

I'd only put the diff drop in as a last resort as in, you're chasing frotn end vibes that you can't fix. The diff drop doesn't really do anything, it rotates the differential rather than drop it.

I ordered the OME kit from toytec. IT beat out wheelers offroad due to shipping and coil assembly.

Dont know about midsouth.

Lets get some reality up in here...

OME is not a better ride than stock. I have OME 885x and the older OME shocks up front and OME shocks in rear. The ride was better stock. New OME nitrochargers are even stiffer. Now they are much more capable but we are talking ride comfort... which is worse than stock. Not much worse but certainly not better.

Next milage... with 285s I went from 21-24 highway to 16-17 highway. From average per tank of gas... 17 to 13. That is a huge drop. You will absoloutely need gears if you go to a 285. A supercharger with mandatory premium gas is capable of MAYBE .5 mpg boost. Still it will kill milage over 2000 rpm which is any speed over 55 in higway and anything other than driving like grandma on street. Average is 1 mpg LOSS with a SC. I have a friend with a TRD supercharger on 35s with a drop bracket lift. Even with regearing and a supercharger you will have worse than stock milage.

LIFT PLUS TIRES = BAD FUEL ECONOMY

I got my OME stuff from DSM. Their Desert Products UCA was also great.

Extra stuff needed? BAMF cab mount chop plates to clear front. Allpro axle relocation plates to clear rear. Noone ever mentions those but they are ESSENTIAL if you wheel. I have NOT needed new brake lines which everyone seems to suggest.

Do your cab mount chop, pinch weld hammering, and plastic trimming BEFORE the lift. You will want the wheel removed to do the work. Do the axle relocation plate with rear spring install.

100% true

885x's , and Nitrocharger Sport 90000 shocks are a stiffer ride than the stock coils / bilstein shocks

Add the Dakars and the rear stiffens even more

as for shops to order from, if you call them, ask if they offer a discount for tacoma world members. I think toytec does 10% off. Also check out the groub buy section and see if there are any current discounts going on.

Oh and I got the trim packer and carrier bearing drop from OME. The trim packer goes UNDER the drivers coil. Sand the inside before install or it will scrape yellow off the shock.

I got Desert Products UCA. It is the same bushings, added caster, and stainless uniball as total chaos but a stronger boxed construction and lower price. Highly reccomended.

The carrier drop is not getting installed till I put the axle relocation plate on. The Tacoma has the rear tire hit the front of the rear wheel well under compression. Move it back 3/4" or suffer a ripped off fender flare like me. I now have to pay for flare repair or a new flare.
