    my brother-n-law has a 03 double cab. it never ever goes off road.he doesnt want to spend the money for a susp lift. he got 5 brand new 285/75/16 tires for free
    who makes body lifts still? and which ones are better??plastic type(risk of cracking) or metal(risk of bolt freezing in mount)
    i did a search but didnt find anything useful.
    remember he doesnt go offroading and its strictly for looks.thanks guys:)

    Well if he's going for looks then will he like showing most of the frame if he goes with a body lift? IMO, it looks like ass with the frame showing. I'd rather spend the money up front and get a suspension lift, but that's just me.

    well he is redoing his house and dropping $40k on a vette so he really doesnt want to spend a grand for a 2.25 or 3" lift with labor.the gap doesnt bother him

    Well in that case, he'll need at least a 3" BL, which means hell need extended brake lines, steering column (I think), extended fuel filler hose and whole bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting at the moment. Head on over to Roger Brown's site 4crawler.com, he might be one of the few people still making BLs for Tacos.

    All of that isnt going to make it run more expensive than throwing some Billy's on the front and an AAL in the rear. For that matter even just the spacers upfront and blocks in the back?

    they're definately still making body lifts...i'd call them direct to order

    no...i have a coilover + aal on my truck and it really should have more than the 2.5 or so inches of lift to fit my tires and theyre skinnier than the tires the OP mentioned

    regardless of whether he gets a bl or a suspension lift...he's going to rub the UCA with those tires unless he gets some wheel spacers

    Do a spacer and AAL before you do a body lift! comes out to be about the same anyway

    he priced a body lift for $240.i'm not sure what is included in that price. i'll put the lift in myself. i think a 2.25 ready lift was the same price.then you have to add leafs in the back,front diff drop,shocks.so it would be more cash this way. i will contact rogers brown site.thanks

    It's all in my head at the moment...
    You mentioned the risks....risk of bolt "freezing" in the mount. How often do you plan on removing this bolt?

    If the bolt isn't involved in some sort of joint custody that it's shared with different people on opposite weekends....i'd say go with the metal?

    hahha joint custody..thats funny. i remember many moons ago in one of my trucks my bolts were one with the body lift so i had to cut them all out and get a new lift.you never know what if he wants to sell the truck stock or maybe an accident happens and some stuff needs to be replaced.
