    ^^ Well, that's good and bad news. Good that they're out and bad in that it's just more for me to potentially spend.

    No one said it must be a 6 inch lift. Why not get a top of the line lift kit like icon stage 4 front suspension then some real nice shocks in the rear and a nice leaf pack to give you 4 in the rear

    If I had $5000.00 I would convert to 4x4, front and rear lockers, winch, aannnnd small 2-3" lift. If 5000 is enough for that.. lol

    6 inch lift for sure, the re-sale market (hopefully you dont get rid of it right away) would favor you more because it is lifted. think of the average buyer, would he be more attracted to it being lifted or supercharged. id have to say the lift, its not a celica its a tacoma

    S/c isn't that great, went from 15 mpg to 12, and you'll only see gains if you are on the gas. I should have went with lift but I got a great deal on a S/c so I had to skewp it up.

    Both--get the supercharger for $3900 (installed yourself), then do a minor lift with some 5100, toytec springs and an add-a-leaf. Thats probably $4600 total.

    yeah but I would suggest installing it yourself only if you don't have anymore warranty. It doesn't void whatever you have left of you existing warranty if its installed by the dealer. I dunno, but IMO I would go supercharger and install it at the dealer. The extra $900 or so is worth it.

    I have a lift, 33" tires and the supercharger. I get 15 mpg.

    When I was stock I was getting near 19 mpg. Then supercharger I was around 18.

    Lift and bigger tires definitely has a greater impact on fuel economy than the supercharger alone.

    X2. You could put together a pretty decent setup if you were patient and found the parts for a good price. AllPro's kit is pretty cheap (compared to others) and you could find some bilsteins to get you started and still have enough cash left to get tires. Supercharger would be nice though :D

    There's a bit more to LT than just a front bolt on kit

    I was implying that it would be a good starter set up that would be affordable on the op's budget.

    Title of the thread states 5k of lift or s/c. 5k of a front LT setup would be useless, you need to invest 10 grand or more on a decent LT setup, you could get a good m/t setup for 5k though.

    Why are people saying get a 6" lift for wheeling? 35" tires are too much for these CV axles and 6" is way too tall for the trail. Besides if OP has to ask this question chances are he ain't gonna wheel it.

    Just get the supercharger.
