    I was getting my tires rotated Saturday and was talking to manager about Tacoma's and lifts. He mentioned that while they do not install they sell them and could save me some money. Has anyone bought from them?

    I did not get to the point of asking what they sell. The dude made it sound like complete kits. Conversation came up because he was wanting a Tacoma with 6" lift. I caurtioned him that he might want to stick with 3 unless he was sure of truck and the install. He seemed to be familar with lifts. After I mentioned thinking about buying a base TRD and putting an aftermarket lift on it he said that they sell them. If I do not get the Baja equipped the way I want it then this is the route I am going.

    Technically, a spacer and blocks is a complete lift, just not a good one. Get more info and a price to find out what kind of deal you're really getting.

    Our stores and our employees are not trained to install lifts, we focus on wheels and tires at our retail locations so we can get you in and out quickly and so we can give you an honest recommendation for other things if they need to be done. (alignment, brakes, etc).

    We sell a few other items through our ebay store now but as far as I know our stores will always stick to just wheels and tires.

    I know that Discount only does tires and wheels. I switched from NTB when Discount opened their first store in Dallas. I prefer to buy from someone that does tires only. NTB will try to sell other services when they do your tires. I really got toired of that. I was just surprised that the manager said they sold lift kits.
