    Thanks

    I love the look of your Tacoma ! my 98 looked some what like it. white and black with 31 x12's LOOKED GREAT. I want the same for my 2004 but money is tight. I have set aside the cash for the tires but a lift is out for now. what kit from who did you use and was it an easy install.


    Thanks
    Tom

    I have a ROugh COuntry 2.5" lift. Its cheap and pretty easy to install. I work at a shop so I got to use the hydraulic lift and nice Snap On tools so that helped with the install. But overall it was pretty easy to install (took about 6 hours cuase it was my first lift install). I reccommend it for a cheap practical lift.
