I personally cant give you any specifics but i do know that there is a huge difference in the install procedure between the 3" and 6" lifts. 3" is bolt on, 6" is not. you will have to do some cutting and welding to install. I'm sure you knew this but i was just re-stating the fact. I think some people on this site may have installed their own 6" lift but the majority of people with 6" lifts take it to a shop because of the skill and tools needed to install it. you may have better luck at toyotanation or ttora. although if you ask this question on those sites dont be surprised if you get flamed, they dont like questions over there, although toyotanation isnt quite as bad

that is not accurate there is only some cutting wich is very easy to do. no welding what so ever. everything is bolt on.

ok, looks like i stand corrected. like i said, i know little about the 6" lifts. all i know is that alot of people dont want to mess with it so end up having them installed.

well, im a highschool student and im funding this whole thing myself. so installing it myself is the only option. and i have a prerunner, so my understanding is that there is no cutting involved

that is correct installation on a 2wd is easier since there is no front diff to have to lower there for no cutting. just take your time. rushing to finish is the worst way to attack a project. good luck
