Guys with lifted trucks.......

do you regret doing it? Is the ride as bad as some say? Stiff, stering wheel wandering, etc...

I know you can throw some serious $$ into a suspension set up, though that I do not have.


Something like your basic 3" spacer lift, adjustable shocks,coilovers etc... (no body lift)


Any members here that have a '05+ Tacoma's lifted, (or any model) do chime in.

I have an lifted 84 Blazer it rode like shit before I lifted it and it still rides the same

There are three rules I live my life by:
1. No matter where you are or what you are doing always look cool.
2. Don't be a pussy
3. When in doubt refer to rule number 1

Well my Rubicon rode like shit until I put a lift on it. I just used Rancho 5000 shocks and a teraflex kit and it rides much nicer. My friend has a old Toy with just ranchos on it and he said it rides fine, but he is a truck driving homo fruitcake.

Oh wait your a Cowboy fan so you won't know the difference anyway because your blind to the truth. lol
