    Hello TW. I am new here and this is my first post. I just purchased a 2007 2WD 4 door, short bed, prerunner, TRD offroad. I am looking into doing a lift for it. I am on a budget, however, I am a firm believer in a TRUE lift (one that adds travel as well). I have determined that the only way to do that is coilovers. I am looking at the 3" Toytec BOSS suspension kit with the progressive AAL pack. Does anyone have any thoughts on it?

    This is the link for the kit I am looking at: http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/Boss-Suspension-System-for-05-Tacoma_p_15.html

    Also, I will be purchasing new UCAs (Total Chaos which I am also open to information about) but am curious what other small things are needed/ recommended when doing a lift like this such as brake lines, etc. I have seen a few things but hoping someone can sum it up for me.
    THANKS TW!!!

    First off welcome to TW Aaron!

    Two things I would add are extended brake lines and the carrier bearing drop kit. Depending on what shape the shock leaf packs are in, I would consider getting a new leaf pack. Other than that, you're off to a good start :thumbsup:

    I was considering a new leaf pack as I heard the stock leafs have some issues sometimes. What do you know about OME Dakar Leaf Packs? These are offered with the suspension kit I am looking at as an alternative to the AALs. Also, keep in mind I am going for about 1.5" in the rear.
    -Thanks!

    Well in generally how do you like the ride? And how much did it lift your rear?

    Love the ride. Not harsh at all. I have a 150 lb. tonneau cover on it 95% of the time.

    I got the CS047R leaf packs with the optional D29XL leaf to add to each pack. It's a hair under 3".

    Thats a little too tall for what I was thinking. I was hoping to get around 1.5-2.0 inches.

    If the stock leafs have had issues, might be a good idea to just replace them now. If you add a progressive AAL or an AAL to shot leafs, you will ultimately have to replace the pack completely. Save some money and do it right from the start..otherwise risk having to buy technically 2 rear lift kits..

    I agree completely, just trying to find a good quality leaf pack that provides the size lift I am looking for. Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!
