Christmas lift

This may need to be moved to the suspensin forum but i figured i'd get more responses here. When my parents asked what i wanted for Christmas, i couldn't really think of anything, so i'm thinking about a lift. they are willing to spend between $200 - $300. Here's my question. What do i get? I've already decided that i'm just gonna move up to 32" tires instead of 33". That is unless someone can make a compelling argument about why i need that extra inch.... personally i'd rather have a wider 32" and have more surface area on the ground, than a taller thinner 33". Pro's? cons? i need any and all input on this.

Also, i have the suspension TSB done. If i do decide to get 33's then i'll need to lift the back another inch and cant use the AAL with the toytec lift since i already have the 4th leaf. as far as i know, with the TSB, the only way to do that (cheaply) is with blocks, and i have heard too many negative things about blocks.

Now the front, I originally thought about doing spacers which are $140 from toytec. Then i noticed that the 5100's are only $60's more. Personally i hate to replace something thats not broken but for only 60 bucks more i can put in those 5100's and get my lift there. $140 for spacers. $200 for 5100's. Once again, i need any and all opinions. regarding lifting the fron.

Assuming i lift the front only and not the rear, i am still planning on the diff drop kit, but i still need rear shims and driveshaft bearing drop?

I dont know guys, help me decide what i need!

get the lift your truck already has 32s i think 265s i put 33s on becaue i wanted the bigest tire i could if you get the tsb done dont do the back untill you see what it looks like just order the stuff for the front i went with spacers because of the price i bought new tires at the same time so money was limited that dicsion is up to you you still need the diff drop you wont need shims in the rear because you are not changing the angle i think i dont know to much about the 2nd gen trucks but this is my opion

hey nd............just remember that a taller, thinner, not so wide tire will be better in the mud than a wide tire. and go for a revtek or toytec lift.

I just ordered the Toytec lift, and their tech department says that the AAL isn't an option if the TSB's been done because they won't fit, not to mention the rather solid ride one would get. The TSB swaps the existing 3-leaf for a 4-leaf pack. Stock, the back is already higher than the front, and from what I understand the TSB lifts the back another inch which makes the back 2" higher than the front. If you just lift the front, it will end up about an inch higher than the rear. The 3 inch lift has 1 and 1/2" block option for the rear which is what Toytec recommends if you've had the TSB done. Axel wrap isn't really an issue with such a short block--it isn't a problem unless you start going crazy or stacking blocks to get height. I'm still working out the tire question myself, so I can't really help any there. Dunno if any of this is what you are looking for, but there ya go...

Stock tires are 265/65/17 on mine which is like 30.5"; 265/70/17 is like 31.6" or so. 33s may or may not fit even with a 3" lift the front spaces are tight--Toytec's FAQ might be helpful to you. Or email them; they are very helpful and quick to email back (they say within 24 hrs on the website).

The question isn't if he can run 33's. It's why the extra inch of 33's over 32's is important or not.

I'm curious about the answer to 33" vs. 32" as well, it's a decision I need to make.......I keep bouncing back and forth on what size I want.

Sorry, was refering to the comment:

Quote:
If i do decide to get 33's
And I've been told that I can't run 33s with a 3" lift (by ppl in RL, not on this forum), so I thought I'd mention it. Actually, I'm glad to know that 33s are an option.... but not on stock rims?
