    Okay...after seeing many pictures of a reg. cab lifted I've decided to go ahead and lift mine. Now, this will be my first project with lifting a vehicle and I'm not sure exactly what I need to get. I have two questions. 1) is if I get a 2.5 inch leveling kit for my taco (08, 4x2) is that all I ill need ? Will I need anything for the back of the truck or will it sit pretty ? and 2) is what to do about shocks ? Can I ride on stock with a leveling kit or do I need to upgrade shocks as well ? Remember...this is my first truck and lifting is a big deal and I want it to look right. So what's the right way to go ? Just purchasing a leveling kit is offly cheap but I can't help but think there's more to it. Any advice would really help me out.

    do the front first ,see how it looks,every lift is different.if you think that it needs a little lift in the rear you through in a addaleaf in the rear.very simple to do the rear of the truck
