Im fairly new to this forum and recently purchased my first Taco last fall and was needing some input and suggestions for a 3" lift. I have a 2011 Prerunner 2wd 4.0 and need to know what brand and what type of 3" lift will benefit my taco for a lil while until I go with a 6". I've never owned a truck before so I know very little to nothing about lifts.

First, 6 inches is too much on this size of truck. That is my opinion. Second, why burn cash on a 3" if you are going to go 6" later? Just save for the 6" lift if you really want it.

Billstein 5100s, OME, FOX, SAW, Pro Comp, King and Fabtech make 3 inch lifts. Fabtech and Pro Comp are just for show IMO.

IMO you should invest in some adjustable nitrogen coil overs. Icon, King, Fox, Camburg, ect. You will also want to consider after market upper control arms from Camburg, total chaos, light racing, toytec, ect. For the rear an add a leaf set up, and nitrogen shocks as well. You get what you pay for as with anything, and you will want to take into consideration how much off reading you will be doing. Most go the 3" bilstien route and call it a day on a budget build. Hope this helps, good luck :-)
