    ok guys, new to the lifted part of trucks so need some good advice, here is what i got and what im looking for...
    this is wife's truck she is 5'1"
    - 2010 taco trd dc pre runner 2x4 with either running boards or nerf bars ( i got both)
    - she wants it lifted for looks only, wants to keep good ride and handleing
    - suspension lift and body lift - either one or both
    - wheels will be 18's to 20's depending on lift
    - tires will be a all terrain type due to she travels 30 miles to work each day so ride is a must, she doesnt want to be beat to death.
    - best way to do it install it myself or shop?
    ---> so with this said what would be the best way to go bout this?

    thanks tracy

    I would not recommend a body lift. not only are they dangerous, but they also look terrible.

    Whasize lift are you looking for? 3" or 6" are the two most common.

    This has all been covered before and you'll find lots of info with a search.

    Also there is a sticky at the top of the suspension forum to help get you started.
