Installed 3" Lift on '01 Tacoma

Just installed it the other night. Took longer to do that I expected! It's a 3" spacer lift (that goes on top of the entire strut so no spring compressor needed) w/ a 1" diff drop and the back's still stock but I plan to lift it 2" in a month or two when I get the cash. Let me know what you think.

Haha tell me about it! But damn man, I'm 16, I don't have the cash for the $2100 6" FabTech lift I really wanted. This should be plenty good enough for me personally, regardless of what other people think!

Not sure what you mean by that but alrighty then. I'm loving it so far and I'm the one who paid for it so that's all that matters.
