    I'm wanting to lift my 02 Tacoma and I was wondering if you 1st geners have pics you would post for me to see and get an idea of what I want to do, and what it will look like. If you can post pics and a breif description of what you did, how much it cost to do, and how easy/hard it was, that would be great!!!

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Check out my install build, the link is in my signature.

    The install was time consuming, but not too difficult. The parts totaled around $2300.

    the revtek lift was $900 installed and aligned (I was uneducated and got ripped off). And I got the Sway-A-Ways for $600 installed myself. very easy install.

    all the rough country came with was a shackle and shock replacement in the rear, and a spacer in the front....Me and some friends did it one night while hanging out......

Nice thing was I got the truck for $4000
    The 285/75/16 fit perfect on stock rims, they don't rub the UCA mainly becuase I have a 1/4" spacer in the front. I think you might be able to squeeze by without the spacer but it would be a tight fit. At full turn the tires rub a wee little bit on the frame, but it only happens when I park

    BTW ppl can post pictures all day long from every angle but they really do not do justice. I could not believe the difference in my truck.

    Go for it. You won't regret it. :)
