Im purchasing the ToyTec Lift in the next few days. Just wondering if you guys installed it yourself or pay to get it done. If so, how much did you pay?

I installed the ultimate kit my self its really not that hard and does not require any special tools. The most difficult part was the rear add a leaf.

rear AAL its alittle bit more time consuming since you have to droop the axle and stuff to loosen it all but still not hard.

You don't even have to be mechanically handy, you just have to be not-retarded.

It's all taking bolts out followed by putting bolts back in. As long as you don't suddenly find yourself welding, everything's going fine.

The rear is easier to do than the front. Just make sure you have two jacks.

Im happy with mine but the front end will get a little stiff if you crank up the coil overs past 3" and i would recomend a good uca to go along with the kit.

i have the the ultimate lift ki w/ LR uca's, ome dakkar leaf pack, install was a breeze and i had no clue what so ever, you will do just fine. if you chose to get aftermarket uca's i would suggest getting a new set of bolts for the control arms and cutting them out ( you will see why if you go this route ) seems that toyota in their infament wisdom decide to put the bolts in backwards. < rolling eyes...........its alot easier to cut them out. the leaf pack was time consuming for me because i took my time and but easy as it was direct swap from the oem leafs. if i would have done this in one day i could have easily done it. basic hand tools, a good jack and stands. Remember PB blaster is your friend, spray the night before and before you start cracking them bolts/nuts. you will just fine.
