    Ok so i have the 2006 base 4 cyl 5 lug tacoma i have 30" tires and want to get the ready lift since that is basically all i can do... :mad: but i was just wondering if anyone was selling their's because i really dont wanna pay $475 to get it w/installation although that is a good deal.

    If anyone is interested in selling their's please contact me also if you have any other modifications that you have done to the same taco as me then please share them i would love new ideas.

    Thanks
    Wes

    well that lift doesnt have any instructions to it on the website do you think i can take it to a local lifting place and the could install it for me or should i just learn to do it myself?

    by the way does anyone have pics of their truck after they get this lift from fatbobsgarage.com?

    i would really like to see it
    the ready lift i think gets it to stock prerunner height im looking for something close or even higher than that

    I got them from 4 Wheel Parts. I installed them myself.

    Thanks! Glad to hear you want to copy my build. Search "satoshi" (tons of threads on this). People use different material for there satoshi. I have Hella 500s with HIDs behind the grille. I mounted them on the grille support, near the screws that hold the grille in place. Pics are in my build just have to look for it.

    I just used a hacksaw and cut it off. I did not care if it was straight or level. I don't anyone will be looking at my exhaust. :laugh:


    Attached a current pic of the truck.

    i kinda disagree a little (or my butt can't tell much of a difference). Fat Bob's kit wasn't put together just yet when I purchased the readylift so I ended up buying the kit from them, and buying shocks from Fat Bob's that he designed for the 5 lugger. Go with Bilstein HD up front and Fat Bob's in the rear, and my ride feels just like it was. Obviously with bigger wheels and tires the ride changed a bit, but I enjoy it!

    On a side note, installing my grillcraft uppers and lowers on the newly paint to match grill, and putting on the eye lids tomorrow! Super stoked!:D
