    Hi all my name is Jennifer. Im from Berkshire County in Massachusetts. Im 32 yrs old with twin boys who love to off road. I am an owner of a 2003 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 double cab. I am having a horrible time finding a lift for this truck bigger than 3 inches. Does anyone have any suggestions? Tax time and have some money to invest in the truck. Want big tires, rims, and a lift............Thanks and looking forward to talking with you all!

    Welcome to TW

    Check out Fabtech and ProComp for their six inch lifts. I am sure that some of the 1st gen owners will chime in and give you some better advice though. Good luck.

    X2. But I hope you are getting back a good chunk of change. For all the stuff you are looking to get, I would say it s going to cost you at least $3K and thats being nice.:eek:

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    if you REALLY want to do more than 3" lift...

    Easy route - Drop Bracket Lift
    - Pro Comp basic kit - $1,800
    - Extended length King coilovers - $1,200
    - Deaver J66 10 leaf packs - $600
    - Custom 8" shackles - $150
    - King 2.5" x 12" rear resi shocks - $1,200
    - 16x8 steel wheels with 4" backspace - $400
    - 315-75-16 tires - $800 to $1,500
    - Regearing front and rear differentials - $1,400 parts and labor

    You can stick to the basic kit and cut out the King shocks, leaf packs, and shackles, but the ride wont be as smooth...
