    Need help please.:confused:
    I'm getting ready to have my taco modified next Thursday. I want some more height than what I have now with the stock body & 265/65/17 tires. So I'm putting on 275/65/17 tires and was told that the Daystar lift kit (2.5" front & 1 1/4" rear) would give me plenty of height. And should not really go any higher because the truck would not look good lifted higher with the 275 tires on it. I was thinking about adding a 3" body lift also. But now I don't know if to just go with the Daystar lift kit like the truck accessories place told me. Can anyone help me and give me your opinion on what to go with that would look good on my 05 taco?

    "Best" lift is a horrible question to ask- far to broad and not easily answered.

    What you are trying to accomplish with your lift?? How much do you have to spend??

    Use the serach to see what other folks have done....and ask them specific questions.
