    Well im sure there are a ton of threads for this already but I searched and cant find exactly what im looking for

    I have a 2001 trd 4x4 double cab taco want to be able to run 33's on it and if I remember right you need about 4 inches on these trucks to run 33's.

    Well if I have $1400 to drop on a lift kit i would be cause yes i know it would be the best way to go but im in college and dont have that kinda money right now so my thoughts are put in 2 inch coil spacers up front 2 inch blocks in the back and a 2 inch body lift

    I know this is kinda the shitty way to do it has anyone done this or know someone who has good bad ???

    Im mostly concerned about the way the truck rides i can handle a little bit rougher but i dont want it to ride like a logging truck

    go their and it lists all the diffrent lift options and where best to get them online. i think that you can get away with a three inch lift. im working on gething the old man emu sping kit three inch lift from toytec for about 300.
    its three inchis with a good ride and the correct price. on your 4x4 you will need a frond dif drop to and longer rear brake lines but that is about 40 bucks or so and worth it to make it all run correctly

    good luck
