3 to 4 inch lift, OEM is my start

I want 3 to 4 inches of lift, stock ride or as close as I can get. Great highway performance. Good towing. Want to go with OEM kit and arb front bull bar bumper and winch. 275 75. 16 or bigger.
Any good advice with actual experience would be awesome. Other than the kit what else do I need :I.e. uca's, extended brake lines... Ect

Also want better mileage and more horses under good.

I think you mean OME

You will get 3" from 886 coils , they are designed to carry the weight of the ARB bumper , OME shocks and Dakars for the rear

If you offroad and flex a lot you should consider extended rear brake lines

At 3" you should get UCA's

^ This and you won't get better gas mileage. It's a truck and your talking about lifting it and putting a ton of weight on it. If you want better mileage leave your truck stock or buy a car. Basically your saying you want a lift, heavy ass bumper and a winch but want more power, better gas mileage and better ride? That's the most retarded thing I've ever heard. lol

So put a blower on it... More power, better fuel economy if you can keep your foot out of it on the highway and the OME kit rides better than stock. Looks like retarded just became reality...

Instead of asking what lift looks best, then what tires will fit, and then what you can drive on, perhaps reverse the order.

What do you need to be able to drive on?
Now, what tires and size offer the best performance for that terrain
Finally, what lift will fit the tires I need and the terrain I drive on.

Hey, I put the disclaimer out there... I was just saying it's possible but if you can throw on a $5k supercharger and refrain from stomping on the skinny pedal just to hear that sexy whine, you're a better man than me

Well I don't care what it looks like. Didn't ask that . Already know what tires I want . I posted the size. Terrain is mud and one ditch that's rocky I have to cross to get to a great deer stand. Its about 7 ft across and three to four feet deep rutted .sometimes dry sometimes wet. Loose rock. That's why the horsepower questions. Mileage is an issue for any one. Any bump up in those numbers help

if you dont put the top plate spacer on with this kit and just a standard 2" AAL wont that give you just 2.5 inches of lift and you wont need new UCA's?
