    I have a 2005 double cab Tacoma and I'm looking for a lift kit for my truck but i'm clueless at this type of thing. I only want around a 2' lift. Should I go Body or Suspension? I need yalls ideas and what type of lift to get.

    Suspension all the way...
    Expensive end: OME is about a 2 inch and change lift. Toytec has a set of adjustable coilovers that can do 2 inches.
    Lower End: Bilstien adjustable 5100 shocks for some adjustability.
    Lowest End: Spacers.

    What are you trying to gain from lifting?? Look/Stance with bigger tires?? Offroad performance?? What is your price range??

    Bilsteins are a probably good for you then. They are cheaper than a full swap (like Toytec or OME) and will probably be pretty comfortable and will perform on the road for ya and fit some larger tires if you want.
