Need some inches in the rear

But not that kind


My 6" Fabtech lift for the 2wd was a bit off in the description...its actually 6 in the front but just a 3" block in the rear. Now Im sitting eyes to the sky (prerunner style), and I need to fix it!

Does anyone know of any add-a-leafs out there for the 2wd, or any other easy fix to this problem? I dont want to go so far as airbags though....

Thanks guys

But are the springs for the 2wd the same as the 4wd? All the companies that list add-a-leafs for my year/model only show 4wd.

Thanks

i am not familiar with the front end of a 2wd... is there a hollow axle????? if you have a leaf spring front end with a beam then it shouldnt be a problem, but i am sure anyone making add a leaf kits can tell you over the phone...

Absolutely, please do. Thanks Raul. What should that get me? About another 2-3 inches?
