    Just curious as to if anyone had a 2-3" spacer lift installed on their truck professionally and to how much they were charged?

    I can order the kit online for 230 from readylifts but I do not have a garage or tools right now to do it myself so I might as well have it done for me. Just want to know how much average install may cost. readylifts say it can be done in 1-2hours so it must not be that much labor in a proper garage.

    Any input helps. Thanks

    I'll admit, at first I read that as "free" and was like no way in hell... hah. Sometimes you can find a local guy that works in a garage to do better work for cheaper...

    You know of any other Tacoma folks nearbye that have a garage & tools and ya'll could work together on it?

    Some beer & pizza go a long way.

    Our offroad club here in PA often have *Wrench-a-thons*. A group of people get together at someones garage and we all chip in the install a lift. A couple weeks ago, we installed a 3.5" lift on a Jeep wrangler.
