    I have an 07 Tacoma 4cyl 5 lugger and I want to put a body lift kit on since the suspension kits are not made for 5-luggers.... :( Has anyone put a body lift on their taco or know of where I can buy a body lift kit?

    Thanks

    You beat me to it! I was just about to post his build. Great minds think alike :)

    Yeah, I think he's got Readylift with Bilstein shocks and struts..

    I do quite a bit of offloading actually so I'm glad you mentioned that there are horror stories with body lift kits... Thanks! I already have the ready lift on my truck and I was looking for a little bit more lift because it's not as tall as a stock 6 lug... But I guess i can always go bigger on the tires up to 32" I think. I have 30" on it now...

    Thanks everyone!

    The body lifts for the 6 lug trucks will fit on your truck. The suspensions are different but the body mounts are the same on 5&6 lug trucks.

    body lifts are not recommended for offroad use unless you reinforce the mounts somehow.
