    I've got an '01 prerunner crew cab and was wondering what a 3 inch lift would look like on it with stock tires and wheels. Anyone have any pictures or insight?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Nice looking truck.

    Where'd you get the kit from? Install it yourself?

    I had hopes of installing the struts. Unfortunately I was hit by another car on the same day I tore ligaments and cratilage in my knee. So I just had the mechanic at the body shop do the install. I went with bilstein 5100's on all four wheels, the fronts are adjustable and I had them set at 2.5"( the highest). I also went with the TOYTEC AAL in the rears as well as 1.5" block. They charged me $240 fro the install. Not that bad, considering I can't kneel or squat for a month. Looking to get some simple black steel pro comp rims and perhaps some 285/75/16 tires to match.

    Thanks for the pics - If I were to lift my truck, what all would I need? (I'm not a mechanic, but I know enough to get around) I've got a pretty tight budget. Any suggestions?

    Besides the requisite hand tools

    one floor jack
    and another jack ( perhaps a bottle jack or the jack that comes with your truck)
    Angle disc grinder
    cheater bar
    jack stands
    heavy duty c-clamps( 12" and higher)
    some grease
    and some spare time

    That's a good looking truck man. I'm gonna shoot for something like that.

    Which lift kit do you recommend? Looking for three inches. Got a tight budget.
