    I am either going to get the toytec aal and spacer lift. Or I found a Trailmaster 3 inch suspension and 3 inch body lift combo with a skid plate. Heres the link:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TRAI...0257375522QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWD1V#ht_5164wt_0

    The 3 inch lift will cost me $450 installed.
    The 6 inch combo will be $1000 installed.

    I thought about just getting a fabtech 6 inch lift, but that will run me $1850 installed. And I really don't want to spend that much unless I have to.

    I would run either 33 or 35 Pro Comp mud terrains and black and chrome steel procomp wheels. 4wheel parts in running a special.

    I have a 2008 Pre Runner 2wd TRD Sport.

    Which setup do you think I should do unless there is another option. Id really like to get 6 inches but not for alot. Lifting the rear is no problem (aal or blocks) but unfortunately ive been told 3 inches is the max in the front (coilovers or spacer).

    that 6" lift includes a 3" body lift. you might want to rethink that. if you can get the fabtech for $1850 installed that is a pretty good deal.

    Allied 4" Lift Spindle

    I would stay away from body lifts. They look terrible and require a lot of work.

    What kind of budget are you on?

    Id like to stay under $2,000 lift, install, wheels and tires. Where can I buy the spindle lift? Allied doesn't sell it on their site.

    You can buy the spindles from Total Chaos and Camburg. Camburg is just finishing up their new spindle which is cheaper then the TC one and suppose to be better. If I remember right, Camburg bought out Allied Spindles to use as a base for their model but I might be wrong.

    Spindles are ment more for s Long Travel Suspension too. I have yet to see a truck with just spindles and stock suspension.
