LOL...wow everyone is going to have fun with this one.

You need to figure out what you want to do with your truck. Do you want to race in the dessert, have a show truck, rock crawl, or do trails and mud?

If you could tell the specs of your rig, it would be very helpful

Ok don't take this the wrong way but this site may help you more. link

What size tires do you want to run and what is your current gear ratio?

When you lift the truck a lot of things are going to change. Since you are a prerunner you can go a full 3 inches on the suspension before doing a drop bracket. If you want more than 3 inches you will have to looking in to drop bracket kits like Fabtech or pro comp just to name a couple. I would stay away from body lifts over 1 inch.

alright then, thanks man
If you are looking to wheel the truck and aren't looking for flash there is a lot of good info here. The thing is this site I mainly for more wheeling side of things and if it is for show it doesn't fly very well here. If you ever feel like wheeling it hook up with some of the local members around you and they should be able to help you out there.


BTW taco leaf springs are really week in the back so don't do lift blocks in the rear. The blocks will only kill your springs faster and aren't as safe a a add a leaf or a new leaf pack.
