    I'm posting this for a friend. He is overseas right now and couldn't post. He will be moving to Kessler/Biloxi and is wondering where he can get a 3" lift installed on his 2011 trd sport Double cab.

    Not sure about the Biloxi/Gulfport area, however, Toyota of Hattisburg has a guy that does Toytec lifts. I spoke to him today about my truck. They usually charge $550 to install. They can order his lift as well.

    i agree!

    There is Rick's Pro Truck in Jackson MS. However, I went to visit them today. They are all about spacer lifts and anything else over $3k. You are good if you own a Chevy or Ford, but Toyota, they only show you spacer lifts and blocks for the rear. Not a lift you want if you are going to do some serious offroading (from what I have read on here).

    That place is full of crap. They deck out f150's and tundras with spacers and blocks and everyone thinks they are so cool. Kids brag about their trucks and go to them to get those ebay projectors, spacer lifts and other over priced junk put on. I'm the only kid at my school that has a true suspension kit. They wanted over a grand to put my OME kit on. Bottom Line, do not trust them with your truck.

    Greene's Tire and Auto did it for me. Still cost me 800 bucks. I couldn't find anyone in Jackson/Madison area to do it for any less.

    I know what you mean. Dude at RPT told me that I could get one of his mechanics to put the Toytec lift on that I want at dude's house. That they couldn't do it because of the liability. I already knew that answer before I got there. Just curious if they carried that brand. Had to take the guy outside to show him my stock setup because he didn't believe me about my stock suspension.

    Its crazy trying to put a quality lift on around here for a decent price. Big Ten in Gluckstadt also wanted over a grand. I truly do not believe I've seen a lifted truck around here that does not either have A) Spacers and blocks or B) a drop bracket lift. What did he not believe about your stock suspension?
