Go big or go home. Where to buy a lift kit?
 
Sup guys,
I'm new to the taco world so idk if this is a dumb question or if its already common knowledge. But I was wondering where everyone bought their lift kits.? I mean is the only way to buy a toytec lift is to buy one online or are there shops in Hawaii that sale them and other brands of kits as well. I was hoping to lift my 2013 DC in the near future. This would help me get a head start.
Thanks ah.

I think it would also depend on what kind of lift or how high you want to go.

The cost might be pretty similar in shipping it in or buying it locally, just have to shop around once you know what you want.

SR5808 02-03-2013 10:23 PM

Thanks man. Sounds as I expected. Looking at a ome for the lift.

I've pretty much planned out an OME lift as well.
90000 fronts, 60091 rears, 885x/886x coils, dakar pack + the aal.
just looking at the most cost effective way to order it.

4wheelparts has a kit listed, but I think it's for the older one with n182 rear shocks.

I got my full OME kit from down south motorsports, they had the best price out of the vendors on this site, free shipping to the lower 48, not sure how expensive it would be for you fuys.

I was quoted around $600 for shipping from downsouth, the dakars are 1lb over the USPS weight limit requiring "freight" from fedex/ups.

started looking at 4wheelparts because they have a store here and shipping here is like $50 or so.

Nice. Thanks guys. I checked out the toytec site. I think shipping was around $300 or so. Kinda pricey. Best I've seen so far tho. Gotta check out 4 wheel parts now. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hey SR5808! What did you find out about your lift? I was recommended to go with 4wheel parts or Maui Offroad. I was looking at getting an OME lift also some time this year. I would much rather get it locally and get it professionally installed as I'm not a mechanic by any means. But Toytec and Wheelers offer good prices. Probably gonna get UCA's also.

Wassup man,
Well so far im planning to buy my lift parts separately from different sources. I am going with the bilstein/ome combo tho later down the line.
Bilstein 5100's from Downsouth motorosports. Shipping was like $60ish for all 4. And the OME 885, 2" aal, and LR uca's from toytec. Total came out around $1300 with everything shipped. Cheapest i found for a "complete" suspension lift. Since shipping to hawaii is a bitch. haha. Havent checked out anywhere locally like 4wheelparts yet. Planning to lift after i purchase my wheels and tires soon. Lmk what you find!

Cool! I was thinking of buying the parts separately also. I won't be buying anything soon but just trying to get a head start on researching where to get it from.
