    Whats Up Fellas? I Just Took Delivery Of My Very Own 08 "taco" Pre-runner 2x4. Its Black Sand Pearl With The Sport Package. Im Looking To Put A Lift, And Light Kit On It, But Im A Motorcycle Tech And Know Very Little About These Sorts Of Things. Ive Been Reading Other Threads And There Are Lots Of Terms That Are Forgine To Me. Im Looking To Haul My Motocross Bikes So I Dont Want A Lift Over Three Inches. Im Looking To Do Some Off Road Cruising In It, Nothing To Crazy, But Id Still Like It To Ride Nicely Around Town. Well Here Comes The Part Where I Need All Your Expert Advice... Tell Me "taco" Brothers What Do I Need?

    Congrats on the new ride. Our glossary may help with some of those foreign terms you're having trouble with. I'm sure someone will chime on lift suggestions for you...

    Put up some pics of your new truck!

    Welcome and congrats, being a cycle tech you're pretty handy with tools, so not over simplify things but... do what you think makes your truck stand out. Check out our gallery and look around, there are a lot of nice rides in there.

    On The Low End Id Say, Like I Said Befor I Still Need The Bed Functional, So The Lift Is More For Looks Then Any Thing. Maybe Around $2500

    For $2500 you will have a VERY nice set up.

    I'd get a set of Icon Coilovers and a Darkar Leaf pack. That would run you right around $2500. Thats the set up I dream of..

    For a cheaper lift, you can't go wrong with Toytec. I would buy the 3" kit with OME Coils (the second one down). It is $299. Toytec is by far the most popular kit for our trucks.
