    I have a 99 Tacoma that I put a 3' fabtech suspension lift. I recently bought 35' toyo atr tires that obviously won't fit. I'm thinking on putting a body lift, what do you guys think? What are the good and the bad and how much would it cost me? What brand and stuff? Do I need longer cables, wires and such? What about the grade 5 plate or grade 8? I'm so lost:confused:, please help me, I need to put these tires to good use. If you have any pictures, please show 'em to me, thanks!

    Im sure pretty much everyone on this site will tell you to stay away from the body lift..... IMO it makes a truck look like ass thats just me though..... i say save up the extra money and go with a 6 inch suspension lift.....

    Personally I'm completely against Body lifts. Awful gap. Looks awful. Cheap way of doing it wrong.


    I would just get a bigger suspension setup
