    I am on a limited budget of $1500 - $2000 and I am looking to spend some $$ on my 2004 2wd tacoma quad cab.

    I am intertested in getting it lifted. I already have Pro Comp wheels.
    What kit should I buy? Can I get a kit for this much money?

    What would you spend the money on if you could do it?

    What size lift you looking for, 6" or 3", since you are asking if you can get one for this price I would imagine you are looking for 6". My question would be is a 6" lift wasted on a 2wd truck? Not putting your truck down, just asking, as I feel when you own a truck you do what ever you like with it, besides these damn Tacomas look great and perform well 2 and 4 wheel drive models.

    +infinity.

    Same lift I plan on doing (Icon's instead of King's) except I plan on getting Icon shocks in the rear instead of billies.

    It'll take up the $2000 that you're looking to spend.

    Sorry for the late response. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the tips. Ill keep you all posted.
    Ya I suppose a 6 inch lift on a 2wd wouldn't make sense.
    Aren't most of those desert pre runner trucks 2wd?
    Im really loving the trophy truck or baja look. The bumper with the skid plate looks amazing. This is the look im going for.
    If you guys have any pictures you could email me that would be great.


    I just bought a set of Pro Comp Alloys. Here is a few pics of it now.

    If you're going for the desert prerunner/baja look, get some of these fiberglass flared fenders and bedsides. It would look pretty sweet w/ a 6" long travel suspension kit. These are from downeyoff-road.com

    Downey flares look amazing!
    Ok so either do Long Travel Kit
    or do a mid travel setup (Coilovers and UCA's) and have money for fenders and bumpers

    I think after fenders, bumpers and mid travel suspension I will be close to $3000 anyways.
    Will it look ok with the rims and tires I have or do I need to change those things too?
