    I have a question about lifts. When people say they have a 2" lift, for example, do they mean the front or rear is lifted 2". Is leveling a tacoma with stock rear considered a lift? The way I see it, when someone says lifted 2", it means that it's first leveled with stock rear, then lifted 2" front and back. I am considering a lift, but I need to know what they mean so I can view pics and understand. Thanks.

    My truck has a 2" lift in the rear and is up about half an inch in the front. in order to do this I had to do a 2" shackle lift in the rear and a 3" spindle lift with a 1.5" daystar spacer in the front. This was on a 2002 2WD 5 lug, the six lugs have different mounting points and the rear axle is under the leafs instead of mounted on top like mine.

    ALL OF THEM!...Then some more.
    Also some ppl will say i have a 3'' lift..like me. But in the back its actually 4.5'', but is simpler to just say the lowest. If someone asks for details i tell em.

    If someone asks me I say I'm lifted about 3" because the front is up about 3", but the rear is actually only 2.25"ish over stock.
    So probably depends on who is talking.
