    Hello all, new here to the forums...I have a 2005 Taco Prerunner V6 with access cab and have recently decided to mod it a bit...

    Anyway, I've spent countless hours reading threads regarding Billy's 5100s and toytec/revtek, etc. 3" lift kit....if you had a choice what would you go with? I'm seriously stuck in the middle.

    It would either be 3" lift kit with AAL from Toytec OR four bilsteins to replace the factory shocks....remember I don't have the stock HD billys.


    Funds are limited to $300 at this time. Thanks!

    Kind Regards,
    Ryan

    The Toytec lift is a complete lift.

    I'm not familiar with the Bilsteins but if you buy 4 biltsteins - you will not get any LIFT in the rear. Bilsteins shocks will not lift the rear. You will need an AAL for the rear even with the 4 bilsteins.
