    Not enough
    A supercharger can be anywhere from $4500-$5000 depending where your at..soooo would you rather get the supercharger or $4500-$5000 worth of lift?
    Just trying to get a general idea of what everyone would do if you had the choice between the two. Thanks :D

    Supercharger. 6" of lift is too much for my personal preference.

    I'd do the lift. It's a truck NOT a race car! Besides these V6 motors have enough power as it is.

    Blower,
    That was my 1st answer. I looked at new Tacomas today even a TX Pro. They looked so small most had floor liners no carpet until the $30k + range. I like the floor liners.
    The new 2012 looked lower than the pre 2012. I drive over road crap or just on a trail don't even think about rocks or things. I forgot what it was like stock. That few inches makes a big dif. I like the 2012 I wish Toyota will make the next gen smaller and taller.
    With all that said I would do the lift and tires first.
