    i bought a used 2011 trd off road dbl cab to drive to work. i didn't want a lift until a friend showed me this siite. now i want a 3" lift but i dont do any off roading. i love the site and all the trucks on it. what do you think- waste of money or not?

    By lifting your truck the "Cheap" way will result in a very stiff uncomfortable ride... I had spacers on my truck for about 15 miles before I decided they were on long enough.

    yes if you think you will love the look do it but like the above post says if you spend cheap money then you will suffer.. save up. pay for nice 3" lift and enjoy.

    This is so true. Stay away from this website if you dont want to spend the money. Either hug or slap your friend for telling you about TW.

    Unless you need it to survive, it’s all a waste of money.

    Really the question you should ask yourself is… do I have the funds to support the new habit without drowning myself like 90% of the world’s population.

    I say use your money for something more practical or even take what you would have spent on the truck and throw it in the savings.

    No just screwing around with you, blow it on the truck.

    Lift that bad boy!! Dont go with a cheap lift though just cause you dont off-road, you'll regret it in the future.
