    Hey all, so I'm currently sitting on a level kit with 235/75r/15's and thought to myself, what would it take, to lift this 4 banger 6" off the ground? Is it possible to use a 6" kit on a 4cylinder? Is gear changing involved? If so, what difference does this gear change make. I've come to the conclusion that I'll probably have this truck for a long while, and thought about the things I could do to it, to make it more "me". Any suggestions would def be good. Thanks to everybody that chimes in!

    Bilsteins front and rear, front set to 1'' and rear are 9'' 5125's, OMD springs in the rear, CSJumper LED's inside, hard wired inverter.
    as long as you have a pre runner or 4x4 you can lift 6''
    if you have a 5 lug i think you're SOL
    you can do a body lift - nit reccomneded
    drop bracket lift - either 4.5'' and do a 1.5'' suspension lift
    or a 6'' drop bracket lift.
    or a 3'' suspension, 3'' body lift - not recommended.

    Any other suggestions to get the truck a little higher? Will bigger tires make any sort of difference?

    You'll probably run into clearance issues if you put a larger tire on, i'm not really sure what options you have as a 5 lugger.

    I've heard nothing but problems with body lifts. It sucks having a 4 banger 5 lug. I was told I can get 31's with the level kit I have now, but I'd like to go a little bit higher to stand out.

    Anybody know if a -27.00mm offset on rims will do anything?
