    Need help please.:confused:
    I'm getting ready to have my taco modified next Thursday. I want some more height than what I have now with the stock body & 265/65/17 tires. And not really wanting to spend more than I have to, like more han $600. So I'm putting on 275/65/17 tires and was told that the Daystar lift kit (2.5" front & 1 1/4" rear) would give me plenty of height. And should not really go any higher because the truck would not look good lifted higher with the 275 tires on it. I was thinking about adding a 3" body lift also. But now I don't know if to just go with the Daystar lift kit like the truck accessories place told me. Can anyone help me and give me your opinion on what to go with that would look good on my 05 taco?

    go with a toytec 3 inch lift.........coils up front, and aal in the rear. i think you'd be alot more satisfied with that than the daystar kit................and its only around $300 or so.

    Thanks....I'm wanting around 4 inches more than what I have now with stock. Would the 275/65/17 & 3 inch lift or Daystar lift give this to me?
