    Hello, I am thinking about buying a 1996 Tacoma from a friend in town.

    It is the Regular cab short box, 2wd

    I don't like how they sit so low and was wondering what good cheap form of suspension lift wold be best. I won't be going off roading with it. just camping and trekking through the harsh Wisconsin winters.

    I have been looking at suspension lifts and I don't even know where to begin.

    Here is one I saw on ebay, totally in my price range.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1995...rQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories#ht_2203wt_939

    Would that be good to get what I want (a tasteful looking lift). Or am I horribly wrong? Will i need new shocks? Will i need a Differential drop?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou very much.
