Right now I have a body lift on as well as a fabtech lift. The body lift was a christmas gift from a buddy. It likes good.. but don't forget that the body will move around more then it probably should. It could end up breaking the mounts.. You never know.

$140 for coil spacer, good for 3" of lift in the front.

But if you're set on a body lift, I just personally think they look bad, and I hear a lot of people say that you can have problems with cab shift later down the road. Some guys say they wheel w/ BL's and never have problems, so who knows...
yea its just going to take a while to figure it all out but thanks for the help

there are several relatively good priced 3" suspension options. i would try to check out those before you decide on a body lift. set your $$limit, then look on here there are tons of links to different sites and theres even threads dedicated to explaining what all the different types of lifts are. plus just ask questions everyones always throwing out plenty of great info.
good luck

Arrow Toytec lifts

There are definitely many ways to lift your Tacoma, but it all comes down to one thing, what is your budget..? Once you figure that out, that helps to narrow it down.

Here is a real basic kit that will get the job done, keep you close to factory ride quality.
