    You can get anywhere from 2 inch lift to a 9 inch lift (give or take a bit). It all depends on what your going to use it for ( off road or daily driver ) and budget mainly. If you give us some more information on what you want to do then Im sure your going to get a plethora of information. Check out websites like Toyteclifts.com. Also are you planning on running bigger tires?

    I have a 06 Taco 4WD with a 6" Fabtech Sus. lift kit with some 35's, i use mine as a daily driver and the tires r quiet and pretty smooth cost me about $4000 install with tires and 17" rims, 2 days shop time. If you plan on doing any serious off-roading i wouldnt recommend more than 1" of body lift due to all torque on your frame there is a possiblity of breaking the bolts.

    i'd venture to guess this is more than 9" over stock height

    so with the right cutting and fabrication skills

    that must be a custom made 1" bodylift then cause no one i found makes 1" for the taco. he might have retro fitted one for another vehicle maybe.

    As these body lifts are just hard plastic "pucks", its not hard to mill them down to a size you would want. OR, if you are good with a Band Saw, you can just cut them.

    No, Im wrong. I pretty sure too that there is no 1 inch body lift for a Tacoma that I know of unless it was a custom fit something.

    no lift is a perfect fit for everyone and every truck

    wow rick where do you get such photos lol. i think the first too fall under the category of monster trucks, the 3rd one is something that looks like a truck and is fully functional.
