    Hey guys I'm installing a 6" suspension on my 07 tacoma and would like to do a 3" body as well. I had this same setup on my 99 tacoma and really liked it just in sure exactly how it will look on the new body style. I was wondering if I could get some of you guys to post some pics of your trucks that have both the 6" suspension and the 3" body. I would love to have more visual by checking out some of y'all's rides. Thanks in advance !

    Do you OP!

    I know the rear bumper needs to be raised along with the frame being more exposed.

    A body lift takes just as long to install as a suspension lift. I personally wouldn't install one. bumper brackets to raise the bumpers, fuel tube extension, radiator brackets, steering extension, instlling longer bolts and spacers and having to deal w that gap between the body and frame. Just go with a good suspension lift.

    Yeah all the install aspects I've done a few before. Why so many against the body lift though? I've one on all of my Toyotas from the 80's models to my 99 taco and never had an issue with them. Just wondering why so many are against them? I just more so like seeing 9" of lift sky n a set of 35" nittos lol
