Does anyone in north carolina or surrounding states know where I could have a body lift put on, and about how much it would cost to have it done?

I paid $550 up here in PA, since I was busy at work, but really wish I had done it myself with a bunch of the TTORA guys.Things just weren't up to par on the instal and I had to redo alot of it. ASk around.

Definately do it yourself. Easy to do, you'll know it was done right and keep a pile of cash in your own pocket.
I agree, Do it yourself. Its not as hard as you think.

Do it yourself definitely. It's not that hard. Most shops will rip you off and not do it 100% proper, and they will throw out all the old stuff. That will cost you 50-100 bucks to get it back from toyota if you ever take it off. The only way to do it right is to do it yourself. Just read the instructions over and over. Even if it doesn't make sense, when you do it it will.

All you need is a sawzall or hacksaw, screwdriver, good metric rachet set, a drill and bits, allen wrench set, floor jack, block of wood, can of Liquid wrench, 2 guys, 12 pack, a full day, and if you extend the shifters some down time to take them to a shop unless you have a good welder. Everthing is straight foward just becareful where you cut the fuel filler, And be meticulous with the steering extension. If these aren't proper you'll know right away. Always test drive and recheck before you get on a public road. Good Luck its not too bad
