Question from Basic to PreRunner suspension, whats needed?

Hey guys, so I'm looking around for a Taco to call my own...I'm wondering, how much $$ and what would I need to get a basic taco to a PreRunner stance? would I just need bigger wheels/tires or would I actually need to flip the suspension all the way around.

what exactly do u mean by the prerunner stance? I think what makes a truck look like a prerunner is wide stance (bigger tires with proper backspacing or wheel spacers) and the prerunner lean (nose up). IMO, it also needs that prerunner bumper, some lights. I dunno.

IMO, dont just go for looks, go for utility too if your gonna spend the money.

well what I'm talking about is the basic xtra cab trucks sit low compared to the PreRunner which sits up a bit higher, I'm wondering if there is a difference in suspension parts or is it just the wheel and tire combo (stock vs prerunner beefier wheels/tire) All I want to do is take a basic truck like the one below and have it sit up like the second picture...

OOOO. I C. Yea suspension is different and wheels make a big difference. I think the truck above is sporting 245/75/16's and the one under has 265/70/16's. The truck below also has TRD suspension components like a different leaf pack and Bilstein shocks. Not sure what kind of suspension upgrades they make for 5 luggers but Im sure someone around here can answer...

welL i was just referring to whats available for him, not necessarily the truck layout, although that may help in figuring it out.

Hrm, so I'm probably looking at a whole new front suspension plus rear on top of different wheels and tires eh? hrm, I may be better off trying to find a PreRunner to cut out the work...it'll end up costing the same or more anyhow...but there are a couple of guys here that just changed up the wheel and tires and they look somewhat decent...guess i got a lot to ponder about...maybe i'll save alittle longer...thanks for the info guys...

Readylift makes a kit for 5-luggers to make it as high as a prerunner
