    With a 3K, you'll probably only get a decent 6" lift. With the height you want, I hope you won't be rolling like this guy (in stock tires and spare).

    to fit 37s youd would have to spend thousands upon thousands to fit them effectively

    dont buy the tires get a 3 inch lift and run 32's or 33's so you dont have to regear

    for 3k there is no way to fit them, it would simply cost too much, im 17 and my best advise is lift it 3 inches, buy 32s if you ever go offroad and store the rest of the money in a bank account for fixing stuff, maintnance and gas, i promise it will be used up quickly

    all i need is a system to fit the 37s. Hes practically giving the wheels and tires to me although they have about 60% tread left...

    then take em and sell em


    any more than 6 and it is a death trap and will require far more than 3k

    you dont have to heed my advise and i know it isnt what you want to hear, but i hate to see you go higher and just be another flipped teenage on the side of the road, i see it all the time when people lift their trucks too high to handle


    im logging off now, if you are wise you listen to us and go with 6 or less, if not i wish you luck on your driving, and your parents insurance bill

    What we are telling you is that there is no "system" or bolt on lit to fit 37's. You would have to spend a bunch more than 3 grand to do it properly. Take the 3 grand, get a 3" lift and new wheels and tires. You will be much happier than if you patch something together that is going to break or at least conststantly give you trouble.

    forget age... some of us have been building up tacomas for several years now, and have more than hinted against what you want to do with the truck..

    yet, you STILL are trying to find justification to get your boy's 37s...

    sooooooooooooo, you have $3,000... lets break this down and see what you are looking at bare minimum for a lift to clear 37s...

    Drop Bracket suspension system - $3,400 basic system with coilovers
    3" body lift kit - $300

    the above alone will yield you about 11 inches, 6" drop bracket, 2" coilovers, and 3" body... figure $3,700 in parts to start... figure about $500 in labor to have the whole suspension done if you don't do it yourself in your garage, which now STARTS you at $4,200...

    running 37s, you will find your MPG starting to suck, so figure about $700 to regear your rear differential, parts and labor... you are now at $4,900...

    as you drive, you may start to notice that your driveline is having some issues... a new custom driveshaft is about $900... you are now at $5,800...

    you have wheels, so that will save you some money... as for the tires, 37s at 60% will only last so long... at about $300 per tire, you are looking at $1,500 for a set and a spare...

    it's a money pit that will only get deeper as you go along...
