    I have an 07 Prerunner TRD. I am looking at the Rancho quicklift to level it out. it is 1.25" lower in the front and that is exactly what the QL lifts it. I did a search but couldnt find anyone who actually had them. can anyone comment on this setup?

    It's a budget lift. Go for it if you're just wanting some extra inches. But you do get what you pay for.

    160 per shock is a budget lift? I figured for a leveling kit it was kinda high. Would the billstiens be the better option?

    Post a link to it? Cause for that setup it does sound high. For a few bucks more you could get an OME set up which is vastly superior. Hell, you could get 5100 Billies for that much.

    I know it's completely different, but they have them on the F350 FX4 models. Fine for small bumps, but they bottom out like crazy on bigger stuff. I know it's a different truck so take that with a grain of salt cause there's an extra 5000lbs on an F350 and I realize that. But that's my take on it.

    Personally I'd go 5100 billies, or if you think you're going to offroad for sure, save your sheckles a bit longer and go OME.

    What's the price? Like others have said OME or if you want adjustable pick up those Icon's in the 2nd Gen Marketplace.

    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now

    Actually the rancho is a great shock, its based on the old Gabriel "E" series (hydraulic) I used to run 8 Gabriel racing E's on my old power wagon & they were roughly 33"-34" extended/ 17" or so collapsed long ass shocks

    much better than Rough Country back then, which was no more than a re valved monroe without the boot, & there wasn't one out there on the road that wasn't leaking/blowing fluid all over hell, I've seen a new set do one run , not even a hard one ,blow all seals on all 4 shocks wow, those early one were real pieces of shit...

    but $160 per shock has got to be wrong, shit you could hit all 4 corners on yours with 5100's for $300 & change if ya wait for the right deal

    Search function is your friend.

    These have been out for awhile and there are some pics in a couple of threads with some people running them.

    If you want them so bad buy them. Overall most run the 5100 billies and are happy with them based on cost and performance.

    custom tan leather seats, bed track system bike rack, Vision Warrior wheels, smittybilt nerf bars, Extang BlackMax tonneau cover.

    Any other info/feedback on these? I had my truck in the local shop and asked the shop owner what he would recommend for a decent, affordable lift on my 07 prerunner, and this was the first thing he said...adjustable Rancho's on all 4 corners. He said parts and labor for them to install would be about $900, and would give me up to 3 inches of lift all the way around.

    Dude that's way to expensive. Install should be less than two hours since they are preassembled and you dont need to break down the factory struts or put these together. You can get a 2 to 3 inch Toytec or OME setup for that kinda money.

    costs 630 and

    cost 735 and are vastly superior to the Rancho stuff in my opinion.
