    I have a 2006 PreRunner and I am wanting to put a lift kit on soon. I dont want to go any bigger than 3in. I have looked at a few different types but am struggling to make a decision:confused:. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    If you wanna keep around 500 do the billies, otherwise if you want to spend a little extra coin go OME (Old Man Emu).

    I don't think you are going to do a 3" lift properly for $500. As everyone said, the most cost effective method of getting some extra height will be an AAL and the Billies...a 1.5" setting shouldn't require UCAs.
