    I have a 99 taco but i'm thinking of selling it and getting a 2nd gen. tacoma. Are there any 9 in i.f.s. suspension lifts out there, or do I have to do a 6 in kit with a 3 in body lift?:confused:

    Why would you want 9" lift? What are you planning on doing with it?

    I like to 4x4 and I like ground clearance getting high centered sucks. Plus it looks bad ass and it's still short enough to battle the jeep trails.

    Wow, seems excessive. But I'm just verbalizing my initial reactions.

    Don't take my comments as anything but just honest expressions of my thoughts.

    I took a 4X4 class and the instructor said a three inch lift, and tires and winch would handle just about every situation out there.

    ERDept knows what he's talking about, but if your heart is set on that much lift you might want to ask around at ttora.com.

    But if you go there, make sure you:
    a) Search first, and if you don't find what you need
    b) post in the Newbie section of the site.

    Trust me on this one. They can be a little harsh over there. :devil:

    Then come back here and enjoy the party! Let us know what you decide, and post pre- and post-lift pics if you decide to go for the Gen 2!

    ERDept is spot on, although they look good lifted, it is more about skill and assessing the terrain ahead of you. A good set of tires and a proper approach will get you farther.
