    Im looking at lifting my 2000 tacoma and looking at the 5 inch tough country. Was wondering if anyone has the lift and how do they like it. I cant justify paying another 800 for the 6 inch fabtech. Any suggestions are helpful thanks

    I have a 2000 tacoma 4x4 I lifted with C/Os, OME rear springs and a 2" roger brown body lift, I run 33" tires and love the way it rides. I just purchased a 2004 tacoma TRD 4 door three weeks ago and have been researching bracket lifts as I want to run 35s on this one, I have read quite a few articles and reviews about procomp, fabtech and tuff country, I will be ordering the Tuff Country sometime next month. :)

    We have installed plenty of brands of lifts. They are all very similar. Fabtech and Tuff Country have been popular..... They are both good stuff, but I dont know why pay the extra $$ for pretty much the same kit.

    Here is 7" of lift.....
