    4 inch lift. Chrome grill package, 17" Chrome Plated Rims, 32 " Mickey Thompson Wheels, Westin Signature Chrome Side Step Bars, AEM Brute Force Cool Air Intake, Helix Power Tower Throttle Body Spacer, UGA Bulldog front floormats, Toyota Front Aluminum Skid Plate, Toyota Logo Bed Mat.
    Ok the title pretty much summed it up guys. Fire away with some answers as to which brand of lift 6" lift to go with. Reliable, long lasting, good performing, smooth and tough lift.




    Thanks

    procomp or the fabtech are the only ones i know of. u can get both with adjustable coilovers. both are good except fabtech has a little design flaw. down the road if u have to change your lower ball joint u have to pull the front half shaft out to do it. cause of the design of the knuckle. i personally am going with procomp with the coilovers.

    Common... all these taco freaks somebodyh has to have experience. Lets see we have pro comp, ive heard from some rumurs that they are kinda a shit breaker in the end too. Fab tech, which ive heard some pretty good things except the one above, total chaos which I had my eye on but then heard some negative things about it for down the road. Jesus are any of these reliable? Are also heard about skyjacker. Heard good things about it also.

    u have to understand 1 thing. there is not 1 company makes the best lift for every vehicle. some make a good lift for one then drop the ball on anothe it is the way it is. the procomp kit for this truck i can assure u is and outstanding kit.

    Total Chaos makes a 6 inch lift...?

    Fabtech is going out of business I believe so if anything goes wrong you might be screwed. But it seems like most people get Fabtech.

    Pro Comp. I've had one on my truck for over a year and about 25,000 miles and no complaits at all. You need some specific questions if you want specific answers.

    this is a question you are going to get a lot opions on sorta like what oil is the best to use. its up to you and what you can afford. my opion fabtech and procomp are almost the same in a lift there are a few things different. i got a fabtech on my truck and so far i have no complants about it. i went with the lift that was the cheapest at the time and it was fabtech, prcomp was higher by a couple 100.00
