    Alright.. Here's my dilema.

    I want to upgrade my 3'' Rev. lift for a 6'' lift.. the thing is that I am not sure what lift to get. I do SOME off-roading (nothing too serious i.e. mudding and going through mild hills). But it's mostly for looks. But I do want to be able to take it offroad when I want to...and I want to be confident in my truck being able to go through mild terrain.

    I don't exactly have a budget per se, but I want to spend the LEAST possible amount. The most bang for my buck.

    I will eventually upgrade to 35'' Toyo's on my truck, but for now the 33''s will have to do.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,



    Stevomac

    For the OP being a Prerunner, you could get some Bilsteins at set them at 2.5'', and then get some Spindles (Which are 4''), and that would give you about 6.5'' of lift. That's the best way for a Prerunner. I'll advise against a Drop bracket lift, as it actually keeps your clearence the same.

    The Spindles are about $1000, and the Billy's would be $300. That would be one of the cheapest but most effective way to lift it for a Prerunner. You won't lose ride quality either.
