    i have a 3 inch lift on the truck but it still looks to low for me. they are 3 inch spacers from trialmaster. would i be able to get another 3inch kit and put it on the existing lift yo get a total of 6 inch. or should i go for a body lift which is better i need help

    thanx in advance

    If its a 4x4, your only 2 choices are a drop bracket lift, or body lift. If you are a PreRunner, You can get a pindle lift of 4". :)

    they mean dont put a spacer on top of another spacer that will get you in trouble, you can put bigger tires on they will aslo help a little, if you really want to get a 6 inch lift, just for show then, do some research on pro comp or fabtech and see what you like better their starting cost is at 1300 + plus labor. or you can get a body lift whicis about 200 or 300 bucks plus 800 for labor

    Don't add another spacer on top of another spacer is what they mean by "stacking" the lifts.

    It was mentioned already, but you're running stock tire size with a 3" lift. Have you considered upgrading to 33" tires. It'll only add a little bit of height, but overall, it will look way better.

    You could put 33" tires on the stock rims, but might need spacers. With 33's you'd definately have to remove the front mudflaps, maybe trim some inner fender plastic. I'm not 100% sure if they'll rub the frame or body mounts. I have an 02, so hopefully someone with an 05+ truck will add their 2 cents.

    33's on stock rims are going to rub your Upper Control Arms. If you use stock wheels with 33's, you will need wheel spacers, or aftermarket UCA's. :)

    yes i used to have a 3 inch suspension lift and a 3inch body lift on my 2000 taco, i kinda regretted for getting such a big body lift since it only raises your body, and your frame stays at the same level and sticks out, on the new body style the frame is already seen as it is stock, so if i decided to go wit a body lift if only go for an inch max. not 3 inches. but if you really need to go the 6" route go with teh pro comp, i think they are the better brands for bracket lifts. btw you can run 33" with 3" lift and some trimming, i have 285/70/17 with no rub. i just had to trim some front plastics.
