    I finally saved up enough to buy myself a Tacoma! 2006 Access Cab, SR5, Manual, V6, 4x4, TRD Off-road. I love it, but of course want to lift it. I put a 4 inch Rough Country lift on my previous truck, a 1990 Toyota Pickup, but I was a bit unhappy with the quality.
    I would love another 4 inch lift, but I don't see much... Mostly just 3 inch and 6 inch lifts. So basically here's the deal:
    4 inch or 6 inch lift? Any problems with the 6 inch lifts?
    Should I go with Rough Country? (Appears to be better than the 1990 lifts...)
    What are my options under $1500?
    So yeah, any of you who have experience with these, your input is much appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Did you install it yourself? How top heavy does it feel?
