    Oh lord! 7 inches of body lift!!!??? Very interesting, how are you going to compensate for the gear lever with so much body lift? As I understand it, that's what causes the most problem in a body lift.

    Will be following this. Start posting pics.

    Way to go!

    Indeed an eye-catcher once done. I'm assuming a detailed homework must have already been done before undertaking these mods.

    As @raohamid mentioned about gear lever, in addition steering shaft extension, radiator lowering and some other minor but important things like extension of flexible lines will also be required.

    In my humble opinion, 3" body lift would be sufficient to proportionally accommodate 35 - 37" tires without asking for much more modifications and will look aesthetically good without compromising road handling characteristics. Vigo already has big wheel arches and is modestly lifted.

    Again, assuming you must have gone thru all this stuff many times over, just for reference for the readers, here is what it will hopefully look like when done as per the given specs.

    Toyota < Brands < Arctic Trucks

    Wish you all the best of luck.

    Steel bumpers are illegal in most civilized countries.. Dont knw ebt the law in Pakistan, If ur Vigo hits a pedistrian in an accident, he wud have no chances of survival bcoz u have replaced ur plastic bumpers with steel horns! Killing spree it is..

    Our people's mentality remain the same... Power greedy & show offs.
    I do not appreciate such an indecent act.

    Sounds good.. I would agree with Tareen bhai.. 7" lift is a bit too much for 36s to fit in. Yes, it would look nice but in my opinion 3" suspension and 3" body lift would ensure good handling of the vehicle.
    The second thing is that with 36s, you will need to re-gear the vehicle ideally.
    Thanks

    ahaha +10 for the reply,lol,yeahh and the one who sees teh car without a bumper is like perhaps he is going in for a modified bumper or it has been damaged in an accident and will be back with them soon,ahahah.BTW the car looks so much ugly without the bumpers.
