Whats a good lift kit

Hey whats up fellas!!
I have a 2009 PreRunner, love the truck.
I'm looking into lifting my truck and actually using it for off-roading. However I also use it as a regular day vehicle.
So, whats a good lift kit that can give me that hard suspension for off-roading but can also give me that smooth ride on pave roads?

Check out http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php
And I think the OME 3" lift kit will be great for your needs. Either that or the Ultimate..

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

its important to know that info before giving advice...

while the above mentioned suspensions are great for certain applications, you will likely want to look into something more suited for desert terrain...

at the very least, mid-travel is a good economical investment...

higher end direct replacement coilovers like SAWs, Camburgs, Kings, or Icons should be fine up front, and a leaf pack with rear resi shocks will hold up just fine for a couple years...

if you can swing the money, long travel would be your ultimate best bet for jumps and whoops...

come on out on desert meets to get a feel for the sport and see some various suspension setups up close and personal...

its the best way to do your homework before you drop your hard earned cash on the truck...
