    Does anyone have any idea's about a 2 or 4 in. lift kit on my truck? I really want one but i would want a small one because the 4wd are kinda tall already.
    Anyone have any suggestions? websites i could buy them from?

    thanks:)

    Eh for 200 you can get 5100's for the front iirc, but thats about it and that would be your 2" up front (think they can be adjusted to 2.5" but dont know off hand) and then an add a leaf but you would be over budeget then.

    Check out downsouthmotorsports.com and toyteclifts.com also wheelersoffroad.com those are the sites I look at.

    edit: with info and some links Bilstein 5100's add a leafs

    Dont do spacers if you plan to offroad....

    if you were closer i would sell you my revtec spacer lift but shipping would kill the deal. yes spacer lift sounds like what you want, but you know the saying. you might as well build it right the 1st time. i started with the spacer lift and then on to toytecs ultimate lift kit, now i want to upgrade, well sort've....

    You "could" its not a neccesity to get bigger tires. And most people on this sight warn people to stay away from spacer lifts. Check the links I posted in my above post.... it shows you bilstein 5100's wich are god for 2.5" lift and a add a leaf for the back. If you plan to offroad DONT GET A SPACER LIFT.

    spacers suck and can damage your truck just wait a few months and save up a little more coin then get yourself 5100's or some other complete lift kit.
