    Going be around 2grand for the fabtech, If you are gonna lift it to go off road you should try it stock first, youll be pretty suprised at what a stock truck can do, my truck is pretty much stock and i can make just about every trail on maui. but its up to you, Im just gonna do a small lift like 3'' or something...Fabtech does look pretty mean though.

    6" lift + coilovers cranked up + spacer lift + body lift = MONSTA. i know that isn't the safest route to go, but there are choke trucks in hawaii with that combo. Trucks in hawaii are a different breed.

    try doing a youtube search on "2006 tacoma 4x4 sports package" it's some guy from Oahu who has the 6" fabtech lift. try send him a message or read the comments on his videos. I think so he said like 2 grand installed by a shop... but why thought? are you doing it for looks or for function? cause if it's for looks, that's a lot of $$$ just to look mean. i dunno though just my 2 cents

    Rajah dat. My friend sold his 04 Xtra Cab with 6" Fabtech + about 3" with King coilovers added, he got pulled over so many times he said eff it and bought a 2010 Tacoma and is gonna leave it all stock.

    Mine is lifted about 3 inches (mods are in my sig) and to me that's perfect cause even now I almost scrape my roof in parking garages, I gotta stick my hand out to feel the ceiling.
