    So I have a 05 Prerunner, single cab, manual, stock everything. One problem....I don't know squat on lifting set ups or anything :confused: I do however would like to lift my truck...and some bad ass rims with tires :cool:

    What is the best set up out there? I went to a local truck performance store and got quoted like 3 grand :eek:...I was shocked...it included what was the lift kit rims and tires...but I would rather ask you guys and guide me.

    Can someone tell me what set up will look good? and about how much am i looking at...and also pics of people that have set ups on their 4 bangers will help also ;)

    thanks guys :eek:

    That sounds about right. My lift was $500 and my wheels/tires where $2000. After taxes it was about $2800.
    I did a Daystar coil over lift with KMC Wheels and Nitto tires

    Do you offroad a lot? Is the truck a daily driver? Are you planning on offroading at all?
    All these are factors you need to consider.
    Somebody else is going to chime in and ask you the same question in about 2 seconds. But it all revolves around those first questions

    Well. If it's your daily driver and you don't plan on offroading a lot may I suggest the toytec ultimate lift kit? it's a little over a grand, but it's a 3" lift, tires, BFG All terrains, wheels...that's up to you,

    well there is alot of different ways to lift your truck but if your not going to do much off roading and its your DD.

    then IMO a cheap easy way to go is the readylift and its about $330+shipping for your truck

    http://www.readylift.com/c-104-tacoma-prerunner-sst-lift-kit-2005-2010-2wd-4wd-275-30f10r.aspx

    and with that id go with some 32's or maybe 33's

    and for the rims you can go with something simple like this is black or chrome...

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/R...eel.aspx?t_c=11&t_s=209&t_pt=100021&t_pl=3361

    or soemthing a little more fancy like this...

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/P...k.aspx?t_c=11&t_s=210&t_pt=100073&t_pl=101929

    there is just alot i had a really had time picking out my rims and tires you'll find somethin.

    hope this helps you a little good luck!

    I agree with 505 if its your DD and you're looking to get a decent lift for a moderate price just go with the spacers and shackles since you dont really need the performance and the spacers aren't "supposed to" change the factory ride and suspension to a great degree. I would def go with some AT tires. It will give your truck that aggressive look. I have 33's on my 5 Lug Non-pre taquito and it doesnt effect my mpg to a great extent. But when it really comes to it, do what will make you happy! :)

    Toyota's are awesome
    The Ultimate Kit is our premier kit, do it right the first time. Basically replaces everything except the rear leaf pack, is $1150.

    Some also suggested OME (Old Man Emu) which is a great selection. We endorse them, that's why we stock them in our warehouse. That kit complete is like $700.

    Do you want to spend less than that?
    No problem if you do, just let me know your budget amount.
