    Okay, two things: 1) I know no one really cares, but I'm excited, and 2) for those that remember my intro post, yeah that whole keeping it stock thing didn't last very long.

    So I just ordered the ReadyLift 69-5510 through my Toyota dealer, who matched an online price of $218. :thumbsup: It may be sitting in my closet for awhile as I'm not sure how much I trust shops around here (plus the cost), and I don't know anyone who could help me (and I don't have the tools). Nevertheless, I'm stoked about getting it ordered; one step closer to actually getting it done.

    Plan to put on some cheap'o Unique 15" rims (Discount Tire) with 31" General Grabber AT2s.

    Not sure how difficult the lift is but you could perhaps tackle the rear lift by yourself then pay someone to change out your front. I paid Meineke $230 to change out my front shock (5100) out of my coil and reinstall and also align the truck. I installed the 1 inch aluminum block from Wheeler's myself, using just the stock truck jack and simple tools. It's really easy, you just have to take your time. It took a total of 20-30 minutes to do both sides. I hope you try and tackle some of the install since it'll get you not only more involved in your truck but you'll sure feel proud that you did some of your own work!

    He shows an 09 which is 6 lugs, I'm assuming you were talking about the lugnuts no? Unless I'm mistaken, then my apologies...

    What website did you find the kit at for 218 ? On the companys website it lists for 329.00. This is awesome! I'm stoked about a lift kit for my 5-lugger finally! Please post pics!

    Thanks for all the replies. To answer a few things; I would like to do the lift myself, as I did nearly all the mods on my previous vehicle but 1) I'd like someone with more experience there, and 2) I'd hate to be half-way through and not have a tool or something. I live in an apartment, so I don't have a place for a lot of tools, or a garage, etc. But if anyone in the Colorado Springs area is willing to help me out, and wants to make a few bucks, that'd be great. :D

    Wow, you guys are fast! Yes, a 4x2 reg or access (I believe) cab has 5 lugs on the wheels.

    Ah so Amigo! Thanks for the clarification. I was unaware of this designation... Always learning something new on Tacoma World!

    Got the lift put on along with new wheels and tires! I'm in love! To recap; it's the ReadyLift 3" lift for the 5 luggers, 31x10.5x15 General Grabber AT 2s, and 15x8 wheels.

    Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate your comments. Y'all are too kind.

    Although I'm not sure about the "young man" part of it. :D I doubt you could be much older than me.
