    so i'm sure there have been plenty of posts about this
    but i was wondering what lifts people have been putting on there Taco's? Now also i dont know alot about what all goes into a lift....shocks? springs? struts? spacers?

    If i buy a "lift kit" will it have everything i need? I know the off road package comes with the blisten shocks (sp?) is this what most people buy? I'm only looking to lift 2-3". Also how much did you pay for lift?

    Also does this negatively affect gas mileage? I have a 07 DBL Cab, SR5, short bed, towing package, 4x4


    thanks in advance

    Look at my pics I have basically the same truck. Yes it will neg. affect your mileage but only 1 or 2 points. Look into Toytec. Their kits as do most will come with everything you will need.

    you should talk to someone like a shop so that they know what you are trying to achieve with the lift you want, if your only trying to achieve a 2-3 inch lift then i suggest get the 5100's bilstein shocks you can achieve a 2.5" lift its cheap about 280 i believe from downsouthmotorsports.com, when you lift it will have an affect on mileage might not be much though.
