    I can afford either one, but not both:

    Bilsteins & AAL lift - looking for 1" to 2" lift
    $350 or so?

    Extang Trifecta Tonneau cover
    $339


    What would you do?

    Tonneaus can be easily removed though, toppers can't. I wouldn't buy a topper unless you're sure you need one (and this is coming from someone who has a shell).

    OP, if you NEED a tonneau, I'd get that over the shocks and aal. If you don't need either one, both are wants, then flip a coin :notsure:

    yeah, both are wants and not a need for now.

    I'm not doing any off-road driving yet, but sure would like too. Hec, I've already got the camping stove/tanks and lantern. just need a sleeping back and tent....Costco.

    my dad had a shell/topper on his Tacoma, for the dogs. I'd prefer the cover.
