    It is the 3" lift with spacers and 2" AAL in the rear. I believe it is the $119.00 one.

    The body lift was surprisingly easy. The Performance Accessories kit came with everything I needed, I did all the work by myself with no air tools and only one jack. I was 16 at the time of installation and there I ran into virtually no problems. The toughest part was getting the steering shaft to line back up correctly with the spacer. After a few tries, I got it and was good to go. Total install time 6 hours.

    I have yet to figure out how to get rid of the hyperblink. I don't want to drill into the housings and risk them leaking so I m still using the tiny 924 bulbs as my blinkers...

    It wasn't too bad to do the grill. If you look at the back of the grill you can see tabs that can easily be removed. From there all I did was go to Home Depot and buy mesh for a grill and used wire cutters to trim it to fit the overall shape of the grill area. I used Gorilla Glue to hold it all in place. As for the TOYOTA I did take it off the back of the truck and to remove it, I used a hair dryer to heat it up then fishing line to wiggle in behind it and slowly but surely it came off with very little damage to the letters themselves. I attached them with Gorilla Glue too. That stuff is amazing and it holds up incredibly well. The only downside to it is that it runs a little till it sets up.

    PM me if you have any questions.

    Thanks. I like the feeling and satisfaction that comes along with doing and making something with your own two hand. And when money is tight you take matters into your own hands. :) And the best part of it all is that you get exactly what you want, no sacrifices.

    I bought it from Performance Accessories for just under $250.
