    Ok, i'm new to this.

    I was looking for a truck to buy and bumped into a 06 TRD off road with a 6in "Pro Comp" lift kit installed by dealer.

    I was reading through this suspension forums and most of you are talking about the Bilsteen 5100 shocks lift. It generally cost roughly $500 installed.

    Question is, How much do you think it cost for this "Pro Comp" lift kit at the dealer installed?
    Reason asking is not sure if i should pay the difference for truck with lift, or buy a Taco without a lift and do it myself for a merely $500 bucks!

    It's an 06 trd off road taco , 29K miles, with 6in Pro Comp (installed by dealer) asking for $21K. Think it's worth takin a look at?

    the 6" procomp kit is 1400 for stage 1 and 2400 for stage 2 thats just for the kit. the 5100's only give u up to 2.75" of lift. its not really a lift just a leveling tool.

    Went to go take a look at the truck last night and yall wont' believe this. It was a FAKE TRD. Yeap, it was a regular pre-runner with a TRD OFF ROAD sticker on it. What a scam, like i don't know the difference between a TRD and non-TRD besides the sticker.

    The man seems to be very nice. He said he bought it 4 months ago and need a bigger truck to pull his new RV. Either he honestly doesn't know it's not a TRD or he's a really good salesman.
