    I just bought my 04 taco about a year ago, and just recently my buddy had me take it off road for the first time. I was a little weary about doing it, but I did and I was instantly hooked. Im looking to put a 3 inch suspension lift on my truck and was wondering exactly what components are needed to do so. Im trying to keep the price around 400-600 without installation.
