    I'm pretty new at this stuff and I'm researching some options to lift my truck. More than likely I will be going to topguncustomz.com since its close to home and got good reviews. I'm looking at a 3' suspension lift. I'm doing this just for looks and I won't be going off road any. Is this a good way to go? I need your help!!!

    You mean 3" correct? Those are junk lifts (spacers and blocks). Spend the money and do it right, regardless if it's just for looks. Billy 5100's front and rear with a 1/4" top plate space for the full 3" and an AAL in the rear.

    Well since your not going to be offroading just go with a simple spacer lift. You will save a lot of money and its very easy to install. You can get a 3in spacer lift and it will cost you around $300 for the whole kit.

    There are a good number of options and just depends on how much you are willing to spend. If I were you, I'd still do a setup that is okay to take offroading. When I first got my suspension lift I didnt think I'd offroad that much but I started recently this past year. Hey, do it right the first time, better safe then sorry.;)

    I just put the OME lift on my Tacoma and it rides 1000% better than stock, plus it looks like a proper truck with the extra lift. I have the Dakar springs in the back and they make a world of difference. I also went with the Light Racing Upper control arms for full adjustability. This is a wonderful way to go and has made me LOVE my Tacoma! I really liked this truck before the OME lift but it has really made such a difference that I think Toyota should be embarassed with how cheesey the factory suspension is compared to say the OME Dakar lift. I am sure there will be more to tell you OME is super when it comes to ride, and there are some other goodies out there I have just not dealt with them. JOE>

    You can get bilstein 5100's for the front, and an AAL for the rear, for under $300.

    This is true. Well close to $300. I personally have 5100s and love them.

    I would agree. An add-a-leaf for the back is a much better route to go.

    5100's on all 4 sides, 1.5" aal. you could also throw 2, 1/4" top plate spacers on if
    you want. that is what i would do if i did not offroad, or even for people that do it some.
