    Hello, just got my 1st taco every about 2 months ago. Only 47,000 miles, it is almost mint. Anyways I have been kicking around the idea of a lift kit, I would like a more aggressive look with my stock tires or maybe a size up. I am thinking a 2.5 or 3inch ToyTec lift, any suggestion? Thanks

    You can put some 5100's all around and maybe some bigger tires, or go with the toytec lift.

    You can lift it just by putting 5100's all around? What kind of prices would i be looking at?

    Oh, I saw that, it looks great, would take me a good while to save for it but I guess it would be worth it. What about gearing? Would I need to change my gears with a 3" lift with - lets say 32's? Thanks for the suggestions guys.:)

    You can go with the 5100s for now, for about $280 at DSM. and get an aal for $80 for rear from toytec. = 1-2.5" lift. Later add adj. coils from toytec $429 + uca's etc. to go higher and better. That is what I'm planning on. I put my 5100s last week, they are awesome.:D

    Sweet, thanks dude, that sounds like a plan. So with 5100's and rear aal's you can get 2.5 inches of lift?

    Yep set the front 5100s at 2.5" the rear shocks do not lift. For the rear get an aal for lift . you can look at mine. They are set at 1.75" with rear (tsb springs) in back (pretty much an aal) The shocks ride great. Keep in mind you will need an alignment after lift. My alignment cost $79 Also going to 2.5" you may need after market uca's but maybe not. 2.5" is right on the line as far as getting alignment right with out new uca's. thats why I went with 1.75" for now. before 5100s [​IMG] after 5100s at 1.75 [​IMG]
