    I'm seriously considering a 3 inch suspension lift for my '01 taco. I found a Tuff Country lift that i'm liking...anyone have any suggestions or tips for what you have done/recommend?
    Thanks...

    I just want to throw a comment in here-IMO 3" is a perfect lift height for a 1st gen-my neighbor did a 6' lift and I have to say it looks really dumb:eek: I think it's because our trucks aren't that wide and when you add too much height that truck looks like a scissorjack! So whatever you decide, keep it in the ballpark:)
    Beyond this, PM Chris4x4 if you want real smart advice.
