Default Installed lift kit 3" and body lift for Toyota Hilux (pics)

Hi guys, my name is Jose and I'm from Spain, I have just installed in my truck a front lift kit of 3".
I purchased to TOYTECS LIFTS industries , this company makes kits for toyota single elevation, not in USA sells the Toyota Hilux, but the Toyota Tacoma has the same suspension system.

I put the front lift kit 3" and body lift 1,5".

Here a few pictures I have which is your opinion.


Also I have several questions that you can resolve me.
I am interested in installing a lift kit Pro comp or FABTECH 6 ", specifically for toyota tacoma, is that the suspension system of the Toyota Hilux is the same as the tacoma but what is not is whether the chassis is also the same , as for installing these kits are to cut a part of the chassis.

What if I can install the lift kit on my Hilux (2008)?

I hope your help.

thank you very much.

Front lift kit 3" TOYTECS lifts


Body lift 1,5"

The Fabtech kit will most like ly require quite a bit o work to fit on the Hilux. Teh Hilux and Tacoma share some similar components, but a lot seems to be different as well.

I would b concerned about the frame width, as I believe the Tacoma is slightly wider than the Hilux. Does the drop bracket will not fit.

See some of the Hilux pictures here for tire ideas. Normally 285/70/17 or 295/70/17 would be good fit. You can probably get some 305/70/17s in there with some work.

Id go for 305/70x17's....I dont think 35's would fit unless you cut and trim heaps.

personally, Id raise the rear abit, as it looks the rear fo the hilux is sitting lower than the front.

Hi everybody. Jose´s pick up truck is looking very nice. I have a similar truck, but it´s 2.7 VVTI gas. I will lift it 3 inches with a kit too. I want to know if there were any problems with alignment afterwards and if I use blocks under the leafs, how high can I go? Also, I´d like to know if Jose used front differential spacers. I´ll use the Toyota Tacoma kit which I found at Fat Bob´s Garage. Thank you. Bye.
