    3" Body Lift, 2" Suspension in Front
    Hello, my name is Harper, I have a 95.5 4wd 4cyl Ext Cab Tacoma that I bought new and drove everywhere as my only vehicle for 13yrs. I've put roughly 230,000 miles on it, many on the highway, many around town, and many in the woods. Now that I have another vehicle, it has become my "Hunting/River Truck". I run a Pawn Shop and was able to buy some almost new 33" Super Swampers already on wheels for less than I could buy 4 cheap tires. So, I got a buddy to help me lift it, and put them on. Now its like having a different truck. I love it and now I want to do more. Thats why I joined TW. I've read many posts on here as a guest and figured I should start communicating with you guys if I wanted to learn from other Tacoma owners. I've never considered myself mechanically inclined, but if I'm gonna keep doing things to my truck, I'm gonna have to learn to do them myself, because I can't afford to pay someone else. Thanks, Harper

    We put a 3" Performance Accessories body lift on it, and then had to put 2" spacers in the front so they would clear. I just had it done 2 days ago, its still needs aligning, and I only have 1 picture.
