    Well for one Toytec doesnt have a 6" lift kit. You could go with ProComp or Fabtech. I think more people prefer ProComp.... Dont know much about body lifts, no experience.

    try this site, these guys are hard core off roads for the most part.
    many people use both forums..

    what are your goals?
    are you lifting for sport, for the mall/girls, or for work.

    Stay legal and safe, never lift more than you need.
