New old owner, Need new inspiration , lift

Ok so I know how particular these forums can be and I don't want to upset the force, I'll cut right to it. I'm retiring soon in Las Vegas (I've lived here 17 years) and was going to retire my 2007 fj as well. Thing is, I've taken such good care of it and I know it will do another 100K easy, so.... I'm gonna keep it!
I want to be excited about it again, so I'm looking at the Toytec Altimate or Boss 3" lift. Can you guys point me in the right direction and is there anyone in Vegas who might be willing to assist. It looks easy enough but a good fj Jedi would help. Thanks!

Welcome!

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.
