    I just wanted to start a thread to see how many people have a 3-inch lift on their 4x2 OR 4x4 Tacoma. I have the 4x2 Prerunner 2009 Sport with the Toytec Ultimate Lift. My friends made fun of me and said that I should have gotten the 4x4. I just didn't think that I needed it because I live in the city and hardly go offroad...couldn't justify the extra 2-3 MPG loss. I just wanted a little height and a more aggresive look.

    I've got a 3" Lift on my PreRunner. It doesn't matter if you have a 4x2 or 4x4 if you lift it as long as it's what you want to do. The Tacoma is a pretty capable truck so even if you only have the PreRunner it can still go plenty of places.

    mines a 4x4 but don't use it much, your prerunner is a very capable truck on and off road

    Those are the Predator Nerf bars. They came factory installed I'm sure because my truck came with them. I think that option ran about $425.00 installed.

    Who cares what anyone else thinks, it's your truck. Your buddies are just jealous cause when you get that lift on the truck it'll look better than theirs.

    I am considering the Toytec Ultimate kit.

    1. How's the ride quality & handling?
    2. Which rear option AAL or OME leaf pack?
    3. Stock UCAs or aftermaket?
