    Hey I'm new too from calgary. where are you?

    Had my taco for about 3 months, got 15000 km in it already.
    It's an 07 4x4 V6, double cab, manual, sport and towing package. alpine white with some tint.
    I fall in love with it a little more every time I see it.

    When I found out a 3" lift can be done for less than a grand I started lookin at mods and I'm really starting to get the bug.....

    I don't know much about anything so I'll be asking dumb questions.

    Welcome to TW you guys. DiveTaco...I suspect most people on this site love their truck as much as you. EMM...there are many members here who have done lifts, you shouldn't have any trouble getting advice and assistance.

    Welcome aboard guys. you can do a pretty descent 3in lift to these trucks for a little over $200 unless you live your life in the mud, then you want a top of the line lift.

    www.toyteclifts.com. I think thats right, if that link doesnt work just google "toytec". They make lifts specifically for toyota trucks and SUV's. They sell a basic 3 inch lift with coils and AAL's for $209 that works well with factory shocks. You can "upgrade" to the OME shocks but i dont recomend it as they tend to sag sooner from what i have heard. I think i'm going to get this lift after my warranty has run out. When i do i will get the diff drop kit and a couple other goodies at the bottom of the page that will help keep my stock angles so i can keep the wear and tear on the joints at a minimum. This seems to be a very popular lift and seems to be ideal for an occasional off-roader. Of course if you spend the majority of your time on rocks or in mud you will want to go with something higher end. Revteck(revtec/revtek) not sure how to spell it, also seems to make a good 3in lift. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask. I'll answer what i can but i havn't actually lifted a truck yet so hopefully members with more experience will chime in :)
