Whatever you do, DO NOT go cheap! Plan on spending some cash & have it done right.

I prefer to use a Sears Craftsman 3-Ton Aluminum Racing jack to lift my truck. Joking, havn't seen much out there yet for the Tundra other than the "Ready Lift??" Thought there might be some Rancho or Fabtech ads by now.

Just remember that you're going to get answers of all sort for this question. You should have picked an easier question, likes "What's better, an auto or manual tranny?"

I haven't followed lifts much over the last decade, but do your homework and also spend a lot of time at the manufacturers' websites comparing the differnet lifts, when they do become available. How much you want to lift is going to be a huge determinant in what kind you use.

I guess the first question should be:

What are your plans for it? Serious offroading, mild offroading, or just for look?

Also important, how much are you willing to spend?

I honestly think I'd take the "wait and see" approach. When I lifted my truck, there were only 3 options available: Fabtech, ProComp, or CST. I chose the ProComp because of several reasons:

Price
No Cutting/Welding required
SEMA Award Winner for design
Consesus was that this was generally the best kit for my truck

Now there are countless options for lifting my truck. If I were to do it now, I would take an entirely different approach. Not that I'm dis-satisfied, but since I've installed it, there has since been alot of stuff that has come out, which are not only better (i.e. more travel, heavier duty, etc.), but they are also about the same price as what I paid for mine.

it really depends on how big you want it and what you plan on doing with your truck.

We are in the gen 1 Tundra area so he must have a pre 07 Tundra which has plenty of lift options available.

How big do you want?
Off road or street?
How much you lookin to spend?

Bilstien 5100 lifting shocks for 2.5" front level lift and true stock ride is the only way to go IMO:cool:
