    Who wants to help...

    me install a 3" lift kit on a brand new FJ cruiser? I've done suspension work with imports but never trucks so I may need a lil assistance. Anyone have air tools and a spring compressor? I can pay in beer

    That would greatly depend upon when you're planning on doing this.

    a 3" body lift isn't the best thing to add to a vehicle. it puts a lot of stress on the frame and body. maybe you could do a 1" suspention and a 2" body instead.

    I would like to do it as soon as possible. I am pretty open this next week.
    Quitting your job to go back to grad school frees up a lot of time.

    i've done the research, I know what I was looking for in a suspension lift. The toytec lift kit is a combination of a body lift and suspension lift, I think 2" body and 1" suspension. I have all the parts for it, from the springs, extenders and shocks.

    Actually, there is no 'body lift' in the toytec kits. It is all replacement coils and/or coil spring spacers and shocks.
