    3'' lift and striaght pipes!
    Hey everyone I have been looking at the forum for months and have finally decided to make my own account. I purchased a 2008 Tacoma Pre-Runner about a month ago. I put Black 18'' XD Monster rims on it with some 31.5'' cooper tires. It looks pretty good but I would like to put a little lift on it. I was thinking just a 3 inch or so. I have look at 4 wheel parts and many places online. My buddy installed his himself and saved a lot of money. I was it was a lot of trouble, but it seems very expensive to get installed. I was wondering what type of lift I should get that would be the best for the money and if it was worth paying someone to install. Thanks for your help!

    Check out toytec. They have good lifts. Stay away from spacer lifts though if you can and blocks.:eek: You might spend some extra cash but its worth it!!
