Question someone please help me with my dilema!

So heres whats going on!!
-Wife gave me about 2 grand to blow away... so of course its going to my truck... but im torn

Do I:
A- get camburg uca's, king coilovers, icon AAL and rear 5100's

OR

B- Get 5100s all around and eibach coils and have about 1200-1400 to put elsewhere like satoshi, lightbar, new (used) tires (im on 265/70 Michelins) new HID's and probably still have some $$$ left over!

the truck is a 2wd DD that I admittedly do not off-road THAT much, i go camping like once a month... so i wouldn't really even use the Mid-travel set up but it looks REALLY cool

any input is appreciated

I voted B because you're 2WD and I believe a good set of tires would be your single best improvement.

I vote plan C: That is plan B, skipping the 5100s and Eiback, and blow the rest on strippers!

Just kidding. But if you are not going to go wheeling in it, I would think the heavy suspension modding would just make the ride stiffer, and gain little.

I voted B, if you're not going to wheel it that much- get more than just suspension. Billies won't do you wrong, and as someone said prior- tires are key for 2wd

Plan B for sure. Like everyone said, no point in all the heavy mods if only light offloading. I just installed the same setup, including aal in the rear, and love it. You won't regret your choice, especially at the price you can get um for on Toytec.

Plan A. I started off with 5100 and just wanting a lift. Then hitting the desert and trails a few times made me want more. So I went mid travel. And surely that wasn't enough so I went Long Travel. Then I went full retard and sold my long travel Tacoma for a Subaru Sti.... But I sold that and got an Fj now which is going to rock a LT kit.

What's It Worth?

So Robby, your wife "gives you $2000.00"? If your wife works and you don't, or the $2K was a birthday gift, then I certainly understand the phraseology you used. If, however, you both work, or only you work, and it was not a birthday/anniversary gift and you use that phraseology, you my friend should be shopping for a pair of balls and not an accessory to you truck.
Please understand, I'm not making a judgement, yet. Just asking for clarification.

Addicus24 as I am an active duty member of the worlds greatest airforce as a Tower air traffic controller i certainly do my part when it comes to the $$$ in my marriage... and as its not my birthday my wife just felt like being a total badass and said "Hey hun your truck looks like a grandpa truck, go ahead and tap into our bank account a bit.. your limit is 2 grand" I didnt dare second guess her and i started ordering!! feel free to ask her, my balls are completely intact... i just didnt think it would be a good idea to go at this without her blessing as she also does her share of helping out with the bills!!

And thank you everyone for your input, looks clear to me that i should go with plan B... eh when these 5100's give out in a couple years ill go with the fancy king c/o's

Plan B man with the OMD springs to match the eibach/5100s on the front. Also you should retrofit your headlights. If got some left over maybe tint, exhaust, paint match your front end. New wheels and bigger tires too
