Im looking to get myself a 3" lift for my 98 taco. I found everything I need online fpr about $700, but I would prefer to buy locally somewhere around the lowermainland if I could. Basicly what im looking for is some 3" lift springs for the front, new shocks front and rear, and a 1.5" blocks for the rear. I dont know if lordco sells that in a kit of any kind, but every time I ask them about a lift, the price seems way out to lunch. Nothing fancy, I just need a little more ground clearance, and room for some open country m/t's. Any and all info is greatly appriciated

mmmm do your math, there is no way you could even buy the parts for a SAS for 1200. more like 4000 min to do it properly

See I thought that jeep thrills was a jeep place. Im new to this, shows what i know. Im in Aldergrove, work in Richmond. Pretty much everyday im all over the map. I thought about a SAS, but for the amount of wheeling I actually do, it would just be a waste of money. Not to mention there is probably someone out there who needs a solid axle more than I do. Im getting a killer deal on some open country m/t's, and I need new springs and shocks, so why replace when you can upgrade. Thanks for the contacts.

order from the us, get it shipped to 'ship happens' then go pick it up. You will get exactly what you want but for 1/2 the price.

we get raped for aftermarket prices..

Yes, Ive got a shipping address I use in Blaine to have all my car parts shipped to. But everytime I cross the boarder now, I get pulled in and searched for some reason. And anything I bring back, I have to pay duty on. Not like before. I guess over the last 2 years Ive brought about $6000 worth of car parts, now they are looking at me as an easy cash grab.

If it does turn out to be half price, Ill bite the bullet and order from the states. First, I just want to look around and see what my local options are.
