    Hilux Lift Kit

    Bigger tyres wont increase MPG, it'll decrease if anything. Engine has to work harder to turn the bigger wheels/tyres and the weight as well. I think for a mk7 you might just get away with 31" without any modifications.

    Hilux Lift Kit

    There's two different main ways to lift a hilux, as you've said, a body lift or a suspension lift. A body lift is generally cheaper to do but requires a bit of fiddling. The gear leavers can foul on the body, the fuel filler pipe will need extending, the steering rod may need an extension, the cowl around the fan for the radiator will need modifying or removing, the brake lines should be okay as the hard lines have coils in then which extend when you lift. A suspension lift is usually more expensive and if the kit doesn't drop the front diff, it can create some dodgy CV angles. You may need extended brake lines for this but there's a few places that do nice stainless steel braided ones. There is a third way to fit bigger tyres which I did. There's a fabricator down in Somerset who's done a few like mine now where he will fit the bigger tyres and then just cut and re weld the areas where the tyres come into contact with the body work. I have 33" tyres with no lift, so no annoying mods and no dodgy cv angles.
