    I saw this on Toytec:

    Ultimate lift kit for 2005 & UP Tacoma
    Rear Shock options: With Bilstein rear shocks
    Diff drop kit: With Diff drop kit (4X4)
    Rear lift options: Toytec add-a-leafs 1 1/2 inch lift (TSB springs)
    Front coil color: Red (standard)

    For 1,149.99. I thought it would be good deal and I am trying to find tires dealership to see if they would install for me. Maybe I can ask my salesman if he know who can install for me.

    I just call my sales man and he said that Toyota service department will do the leveling kit with alignment. They said the do 2 inches in the front and 3 inches in the back. All come with original shocks. Good or not?

    Toyota is going to sell you a Ready Lift kit. It's a good lift for running around town. Alas, your dealer will RAPE you on price. I bet they would charge you about $800 bucks for that installed. :notsure:

    The ultimate lift is a good kit, however the dealer will charge you alot and you can do it yourself. It's an easy kit to install and there are alot of good writeups on here to help you.

    My one question about the dealership, is that if they do it, you are still covered under warranty. Are you guys not worried about it. Cause I was planning on an 'Ultimate", and if I really don't have to, that 800 can go for rims and tires.

    The lift won't hurt your warranty, I doubt the dealer will warranty there work. Just do some diy research on here and do it yourself man! It's really not hard.

    Thanks. Actually met alot of guys here, and I work with a bunch of mechanics, so I think installation will require an afternoon, beer, pizza, and muddin later on.
