Buying a long travel kit

Okay I am about to pull the trigger on an All-Pro long travel kit with steering upgrade and fox shocks.

In the rear I will be running the expedition leaf pack with fox shocks.

I will be doing the install myself. ( except for the extended axle
Part they recommend to have Toyota do that and I am having them do that.

Any suggestions thoughts comments?

Oh yes it's a 2012 double cab TRD off road

Don't waste your money on the HD steering,

My dealer wouldn't install them as they're not a serviceable part.

that is all

Why not do the steering upgrade? And in the install paperwork it says to have Toyota do it. Haha hope my local dealer does

please don't have toyota do the axles. I really doubt they'll even do that. I had a local shop swap my axles for 100 bucks. Toyota will be way more expensive. Talk to a few friends or search around for a reputable local shop

not exactly just like All Pro's kit cuz I think they include inner and out tie rods and other shit, but its the heim rod ends that give you more articulation without binding:
