    Hi does anyone have any experience or know about body lifts for the 4x2 5 lug? I want to lift it just for the looks, I also want to get bigger tires as well. I wanted to know if there is the bilstein 5100's for the 4x2 5 lug or anything like that to level it out. Any info or advice would be great. I want a cheaper upgrade instead of suspension. I just want to lift it like 3 inches and get the front level with the rear. Thanks..

    What year is your truck? If it's an 05 or newer, I've only found one kit for the 5 luggers. It's a 3" lift made by ReadyLift (model # 69-5510). You can find it for about $230 including shipping. It seems to be a good lift and has gotten good reviews. Hope this helps. Remember, I'm still a newbie. :D

    Here's a link to autoanything

    And here's a link to the ReadyLift website
    http://www.readylift.com/c-107-tacoma-5-lug-sst-lift-kit-2005-2008-2wd-now-available.aspx

    There's also video showing how to do the install. Good luck.

    They make kits, but not for the 05-newer 5 lugs.
