    I have an 07 Tacoma double cab tacoma. Looking somewhere in the future to lift it. Wanting it for show only, not really an off road trucking person but will go time to time. I had an 01 tacoma with a 3" Revtek susp. lift on it. Had problems with the CV boots ripping. Really don't want that with this one. I wouldn't mind lifting it 3" if there was a lift out there that would keep the axles parallel to the ground. Any suggestions? I want to lift it 6" but have heard war stories about welding and torching?

    How much cash monies you willing to spend? $1000? $2000? More? Details!

    Probably the best 2.5"- 3" set-up...

    Fox 2.5 series c/o w/ resi up front ($1200)
    Fox 2.0 piggybacks shocks for the rear ($600)
    All-Pro 1.5" new leaf pack ($500 ?)
    Total Chaos UCA's for the front ($650)

    Oh, and not the best photos... but here's pics of a my truck at 2.75". I the second photo, the truck is sitting next to a taco at stock height.

    I would like to try to get Toyota to put on the lift for me so it can be included in the warranty. I really don't know if that is possible since it is a used vehicle and already driven off the lot. Go figure. Money isn't a concern with me. If I want a lift that is pricey, I will save for it. With the war story part, I just didn't care too much for the idea of someone torching underneath my truck

    Where can I get a drop bracket kit? I wouldn't have any reserve about getting a 3" suspension lift if I could make those front axles parallel to the ground.

    3" lift...
    Get some Bilstein 5100s with some Old Man Emu 885s springs and a AAL for the rear :)
    Then some Total Chaos Upper Control Arms and 285/75/16 rubber :)
