    I have an '07 PreRunner and have issues with the tires rubbing when I make turns. I have already installed 1.25" spacers and the rubbing issue has gotten better, but it still rubs. I am looking at purchasing an inexpensive lift. I don't do any off roading ever and the tires I have are 33s. This kit has pretty good reviews and I just wanted to get your take on it.

    I have read the pros and cons of lifts. I am on a tight budget so I want to get the best bang for the buck without breaking the bank. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advanced!

    Would you recommend 5100s all the way around? I have thought of doing this too because it isn't too expensive.

    Since your 2nd gen. You could lift it 4"-6" & your still going to rub & I suspect the rubbing is tire against the cab mount... time to chop,chop....
