    I was just trying to get a good idea how much I'm going to spend having a lift installed after I get back to the states and buy a 2011/2012 Taco 4x4 TRD OFF-ROAD. I plan to put on 5100's at .85 with Eibach coils, LT UCA's and a 2" AAL. Any help would be great. I would love to try and do it my self, but I don't have the room to.

    It differs from shop to shop, can cost anywhere from 300-1000 dollars. Just give some local, reputable shops a call for a quote :thumbsup:

    Or just talk to the local TW people. Im sure someone on here wouldnt mind letting you use there driveway for an afternoon while you guys install everything. The price for beer and pizza is a lot less than the price of an install job at a off road shop.

    I agree. Most of us are a helpful bunch. I organized the first local TW trail in our area to meet local 4x4ers and find out about the local trails. My wife missed the first one because she wasn't feeling good. So I took my wife on her first real trail run 3 weeks later with another TW member that just got his 3" lift and wanted to try the trail again. And when the wife saw how close we came to hitting the frame a couple of times she said maybe we should get a 3" lift too. I asked for lift suggestions on the trail run thread and not only got suggestions but also offers to help install it. Find your local 4x4ers. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/members/list/
    Edit just tried link and it brought up the full member list. You need to do an advanced search on it with Dover in the location spot.

    I see 11 TW members in Dover, DE. Don't know how many are 4x4ers. You can check their profiles. I did the same in our area and PM'd all the 4x4ers to set up the trail run.

    In my opinion, Doing a lift kit myself is alot more gratifying then having somebody install it, Even if you round up a couple TW buddies i think you'll be alot more prideful in your truck. I look at installing parts on my truck as a way to get to know all the ins and outs of my rig. Nowadays with Youtube and the internet, Everyone is becoming Weekend Warriors on there trucks.

    When i lifted my first truck, I was exhausted, Dirty, Beat down, and Cut up but man you bet your A** i called up everyone of my friends and showed off my work. Just cant have that kinda pride from just being handed the keys to a newly lifted truck. Good luck OP i hope you get it installed and you are satisfied with the results! You as well 4wheelin'!

    Thanks everyone. I plan on calling around when I get back from my deployment. I am still on the fence about what set up to go with 5100's at 0 and a 1.5" AAL or 5100's set at .85 and a 2" AAL and UCA's. I just don't want the truck to end up looking top heavy rolling around on stock BFG's with a 3'' lift. I might just do the 5100's at 0 and Eibach coils until I can afford new tire. Then get the UCA's and 2" AAL with the 5100's set at .85. I've been over here for 6 months now and have been driving myself crazy thinking about getting a new truck. I would do it all at once but I'm going to be coming home to a new member of my family and formula and diapers aren't cheep... 3 more months to go!!!

    Thanks again

    Congrats
    Does your base have an auto shop where you can work on your truck? The Navy bases I was at all did.

    The UCAs are probably the most time-consuming part, because the long bolt holding it to the frame doesn't come out nicely. It requires "persuading" the inner fender with channel-locks.

    That setup would leave you with a lot of rake. Why you getting new UCA's?
