    So i got myself in a little bit of trouble and had to make a sacrifice, So i sold my 98 Tacoma that was my baby for the last 4 years and purchased a 96 runner. Now i need to know what kind of lift to get im looking to run 285s and dont want to spend a ridiculous amount, but im not going to cheap out like i did on my taco. What do you guys suggest?
    Its a white 96 sr5 with the 3.4 and its bone stock.
    Also im trying to upload a picture but it a pain on my phone so bare with me!

    Welcome to the club! Head on over to T4R.org and visit the 3rd gen section. There is lots to be learned. For a lift to fit 33's you have a lot of options.

    Heres the thread with info that should help, i've been reading on it myself trying to decide what i want to do with my 4r. I will not make the same mistake i made on my truck and go with a spacer lift, thats for sure!

    Sold my tacoma last week and bought an '02 limited 4x4. An xtra cab isn't very "newborn" friendly!
