If you go to the Tacoma garage section on the top menu there you will find lots of information. Depending on the lift you want they have lots to choose from and reviews so you can see what you'll be buying.

What re you trying to accomplish with the lift? Bigger tires? More ground clearance?

The Baja guys may correct me on this, but the Baja comes with a slightly lifted front end already. If you choose to lift more (properly IMO) you would be replacing the Baja shocks and/or springs. Kinda defeats the purpose of paying extra for the Baja package in the first place.

Anyone?

I agree, the only way to properly lift the front would be with an extended travel coilover or maybe with a drop bracket lift. The rear would be simular to any other tacoma. It does kinda defeat the purpose of buying a Baja to begin with though.

The Baja Edition comes with some sweet 60mm Bilsteins from my understanding. I wouldn't get rid of those. You could do a small top-plate spacer for about 1/2" of additional lift, but that would probably be about it. Best bet is to just up the tire size.

x2. Get a small spacer if you want a little bit more. I think the Baja's already come with +/- 2'' of lift.
