    Fixin to go pick up my new to me 2004 tacoma trd sr5 4x4 tomorow or friday. I want to lift it all the way around no more than 2 inches. and want a suspension lift. What kits do you guys prefer or use? What all has to be done when lifting this truck as far as longer brake lines, extended 4wd shifter although I think its got buttons for 4wd. Not familular with a toyota cause I have never owned one so try and bear with me please. Any input or advise will be helopfull thanks!!!

    Well I do a shit ton of hunting all year round but when it gets wet there is a few places on our farm that can get kinda rough. Nothin to bad I just want a lil lift with bout some 33"s Nothin to big cause I still want to get decent gas mileage. Also im not a big fan of body lift. I figure lift it and widen it a couple inches with some bigger tires itll be just what I need and look good to. Im lokin in he price range of 1k for new suspension. Almost everything I found was in the 500-1k range so what you recomened??

    S E A R C H! Congrats on your first tacoma. 5100s all around they have three different settings. A add a leaf. And your set. You only need brake lines for 3+ inches of lift.

    Look at this place http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/ometaco.htm a complete front and rear lift for just over 1k. Most people on here will say OME, billys, or coilovers. Trust me I don't like body lifts either and being from south La I wheel in the same stuff you do. Scroll all the way down to see the complete kit.
