I've done a Ram. What do you want to know?

This kit looks real easy.http://www.ultimateautoaccessories.c...source=Froogle

Well I just wanted know if I can even buy a kit for my model. Probably most people with this model truck wouldn't lift it. It is obviously pure aesthetics, because its not an off road car. I looked at that kit, however its for the 4wd and Pre-runner models, which have a different chassis.

Checkout Skyjackers web site. They make really nice kits.

If you do just a small lift (3"-4") . They are fairly easy to install.

Ivan Stewart raced a 2wd Toyota. Plenty of people lift 2wd's as prerunners, you're just not going to be doing any rock-crawling in it--that's what Jeeps are for.

Thanks for the site. Yeah I checked out the 2" spacers, they look like a fairly easy install. Ive done a lift like that on a jeep before, so I should be able to bust it on the toyota. Ide probably rather go with the 3" lift but you need to use a coil compressor, and I dont really feel like messing with one. besides, my tires are still good and dont want to replace them, by the time its got a 2" lift, the wheels might look a bit funny.
