    that lift in the link you posted isn't for a tacoma.

    look into toytec or ome for quality lifts at a decent price

    The $1000 is supposed to cover the kit+labor. Planning on getting 33" BFG or Duratrax tires next year. Anything that doesn't include spacers or a body lift works for me. So far these are good options keep em comin.

    If you need labor included you are screwed. Probably no choice but 5100 and 3 leaf add a leaf. Looks like you are done looking for parts.

    Apparently Duratrax tires have a high retention rating meaning that they don't collect rocks and throw them at your truck. Maybe the guy was just trying to sell tires I'm not really sure haha.

    Yeah looks like this is the cheapest/easiest option. It might be worth it for me to just keep saving up. Or spend the whole grand solely on the lift kit and find a buddy to put it on for cheap instead of paying the shop.

    If anyone has a hook up with Fox I'd be willing to pay for one of those kits in the future.

    Toytec or OME. Although including installation on both of those would put you over 1k.

    Damn, looks like I should definitely put more money into the lift. Is OME the Icon lift kit?

    After weighing out the options it looks like I'm going to say hell with the ProComp and save up for a quality kit like Fox, Camburg, or Icon. Probably way better in the long run.
