    There are several ones out there and which ones best is a matter of personal preference. For a three inch lift every kit out there is almost the same. They all have an add aleaf and a strut spacer be sure to get one with the differental drop. Some come with shocks. Tuff Country or Pro Comp are good in my opinion.

    You have to decide on a spacer lift or a suspencion lift. Spacers are cheaper, a front suspension lift is about 1000.00 for coil overs. Spacers are a couple hundred.
    Do you want just added height or a performance off road suspension lift? That will be where the price difference is.

    3"- 33" tires, 6"- 35" tires. With either lift you will have to run spacers or get new wheels to run larger tires. 33" tires are cheaper than 35", with 3" you can run stock shocks if you want, 6" new shocks all around. 3" most do-it yourselfers can do it, 6" most likely a pro will have to do it.

    Hey you can get a ProComp 3" lift/leveling kit for $181.00 shipped to your door. This comes with a differential drop, add a leaf in the rear, and front spacers.

    It all depends on what you want to use your taco for? For driving around all day in the city, I don't know? If your going to use it for offroad or any loads, OME all the way.

    I dont know if it makes a difference down the road, but some spacers are plastic and some are aluminum. I know the Toytec are aluminum.

    sounds like toytec is the best for your money then since im not using it for off roading...mainly for city cruising and getting around everyonce in a while i take it off road when we go hunting and fishing what not

    I decided to go with the spacer lift as opposed to the new coils. I have heard that they will sag over time. the spacer lift actually compresses your stock coils more, making them even less likely to sag.

    I just put a revtek 3" suspension lift on my truck with blocks in the back, and the spacers up front. All drives, rides and 4 wheels well, no rubbing, Les Schwab Tire center sold and installed it and they dont put anything in without a gurantee and a warranty $450.00 installed and aligned. I put 285/70r/17 Dick Cepek Mountain cat off road tires on, its a little noisy going down the highway but i dont mind, i wanted an aggressive off road tire.

    does the lift and tires affect your speed? and acceleration? at all?
