"properly lift"??? I guess it depends on what you mean by properly. Sure, $1000 won't buy you a long travel kit for the front, but it'll more than buy a very solid, very well performing kit from Old Man Emu. If you shop around for good prices, you can get the lift and a set of tires for $1000.zeoth said:And $1000 isn't a lot of money to work with. You almost can't complete any mod. You can buy subs and an amp but a good deck will blow that budget away. Also I don't see how you can properly lift the 4-Runner for $1k. You can do what I did and retrofit S2000 HID's but even so, it's still over $1k.
