    I have an 08 tacoma base model (5-lug) and want to do a custom body lift with 1.5 to 2 inch blocks. iv seen one guy on here do it but he just bought spare parts off of TW. iv looked at the "roger brown" website and they dont have a kit listed for my year model truck. If ANYONE can figure this out that would be awesome! or make a kit for it i would pay the money...

    thanks guys!

    Trade it in and get a Prerunner. Problem solved :D

    Better yet, get a 4x4 - form AND function ;)

    I actually think lifted 5 luggers look really, really good due to their lack of the plastic fender flares.
    But I wouldn't do a body lift. Yeah they are cheap but I think it would be in your best interest to save up and do it right by getting a suspension lift. In the long run I think you would like it better.

    I'm already getting the fat bobs lift but I just want a little more to fit bigger tires. And as it being dangerous I know plenty of people that have it and do slight off roading and never have had a problem. Just need somewhere to find the parts.

    it'd look silly IMO. I'm running 33x12.5x15 on a fat bob's BTW.

    Body lifts are terrible. Gotta cut this n extend that n weld stuff in. Then ya gotta worry bout mounts breakin or bendin. Get a prerunner n be done

    Can you install a Spindle Lift on a 5 Lugger? Then also a rear leaf pack from All Pro?​

    No the only resonably affordable lifts are the ready lift or the fat bobs which I already have, both are only 2.75"
