Yes, it's possible, just not a great idea in my opinion... I'm not a fan of body lifts when it comes to compromised safety and looks.

Most people on this site are against body lifts, they look like crap, but they are ok. As long as its a good kit and its done right.

I have a 1inch body w/a 3 inch suspension on my 4 runner and it looks good. And I wheel the fuck out of my runner. It's been air born,on its top, and rock crawled hard, still no problems with the body lift. I did it to clear bigger tires.

I have the OME 3inch lift. And a toytec 1 inch body lift.

Here is some action shots. Like I said we wheel it pretty good here in CO and it hasn't been bad for me.

I can clear 35's easy with it. Those are 34's on there right now. Its only a 1inch so it will only make a 1 inch difference. I have never ridden in my runner without the lift. I have no input for the ride. I feel my runner rides smooth but that's prolly the OME suspension.

No problem, my best advice is do what you like or what you think looks good on your own vehicle and say "fuck you" to people. it's your truck your really the only one who has to like it.

IF you do go with a body lift, get a good brand such as Performance Accessories and have it properly installed.

The performance acc body lift are the bottom of the barrel junk, that's the kind of kit that gives body lifts a bad name.

I've installed three 2" body lifts on Tacoma's with a 3" lift, and put 100k miles on them from texas to colorado with no issues at all. It takes about 8 to 10 by yourself and there are a lot of details, I believe there are a few write-ups on this site.

I would suggest reading several install write ups and make your own notes, step by step and then re-checking your notes against another install.

The only body lift I would ever purchase :

http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/ForSale/ProductLine.shtml

Spend the extra money and get the heavy duty hardware, the whole kit runs about $200. You'll learn a great deal if you do it yourself and know its done right!

Good luck

i've been out of the lifted truck scene for some time now but Perf Acc was a better, more complete kit at the time. The one you prefer does look good. Point being, IF one is to use a body lift, use a quality product. Don't skimp.

The bad reputation was from folks making their own lifts out of hockey pucks and what have you back in the day. Stacking lifts or going beyond 3". Many kits available today from reputable companies should be fine if PROPERLY installed. Of course, we all have an opinion.

I agree it's JMO, performance acc kit with hollow pucks

http://www.google.com/search?q=perfo...8&bih=268#i=12

Performance acc blocks are made from graphite and glass-impregnated nylon semi-hollow blocks.


Or the 4crawler with solid pucks

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&t...68&bih=268#i=6

4crawler blocks are made from solid polyurethane blocks.
