    I'm REALLY contemplating a 3" lift for my taco. I've seen all of the lifted taco's on here and man, they look good! I was just wondering if any of you with 3" lifts ever have trouble in parking garages? My tacoma is stock height but everytime I drive into a parking garage my antenna hits the clearance signs. I realize the factory antenna is sticks up above the roof but not by much. It appears that a three inch lift would put me above that limit. Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Khris

    Only way to tell is to take a tape, and check the height. :)

    ^^agreed... course you could always get airbags and go up when your outta the garage and go down when you go in to it... thats the expensive alternative

    I know.... I think it should be fine I had a 4X4 Expedition that barley fit in my garage like 1/4 to1/8" clearance and my Tacoma has plenty of room.. Guess it would depend on the garage
