no such thing as a good cheap lift, to lift it properly be ready to invest alot of money and do it right the first time

I did the work myself so the total cost for lift was $75.00 plus I got it aligned for $100.00.

The 2.5" Hell Bent Steel lift said that you can fit up to 32" tires. If I want to run 255/85/16s how much trimming is needed? I have an 01. Thanks

Im going to have to say that the words "good" and "cheap" really don't coincide with one another when it comes to a lift....come to think of it, i really don't think it works that well with any upgrades! My buddy gave me one of those garage signs when I started wrenchin on cars that said somethin along the lines of
"Cheap
Fast
Reliable
Choose two!"

I'd assume the same goes for trucks as well!

Don't know much about the first gen Tacomas. I had to trim quite a bit off of the inner fender and clip the edge from the fender flare. Trimmed more than I thought I would have to and still get a rub when I turn my wheels a certain way on a slight upgrade.

Although I agree with you, I think there are other people in my situation. I've read many threads that say "do it right the first time" or "save your $$$ and do it right" and I agree that would be the best way. But, I needed tires now and didn't want to spend the $$$ for both a great set of tires and a great lift. So, I got great tires and put enough $$$ into my suspension to clear them. Now I can save the $$$ for a great lift. I only invested $175.00 in my lift ($75.00 for the HBS 2.5" front lift, $100.00 for an alignment, and $0.00 for rear TSB).
