What do you want to use your truck for?

And which toytec 3" lift are you talking about? They sell 3" kits consisting of anything from spacers to adjustable coilovers.

Decide what height you want first:

Toytec: 3"
RCD: 4.5"
Fabtech: 6"

The Toytec ULK and the RCD are nice lifts. Don't know too much about the Fabtech.

I'm sure when you asked for input you didn't mean on the rims, but those are BY FAR my least favorite rims on the market. I beg you to get anything but those.

So I didn't help with my first post?

Also FYI this has been covered a million times and if you search for a while you'll find more than you want to know about all of these lifts. That's likely why no one has responded.

Is money an issue? The Fabtech is nice but sounds like a bit of overkill if you just a casual off-roader.


The RCD is a drop bracket that will require you to cut the crossmember out. Personally, I am not a fan of DB lifts.



The Toytec ultimate is a solid lift that will give you good on and offroad suspension feel. I would recommend this or an OME setup.

There have recently been quite a few thread where people who are, or have been running the Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit have been unsatisfied with the ride quality of their trucks. The rcd kit obtains lift from new spindles and the drop bracket set up, along with new extended length (I believe) front struts. By not pre-loading the struts up front this should theoretically provide a smoother ride. But remember your in a truck. It's never going to ride like a caddy. Expect a rougher (some people like it, some don't) ride from lifting your truck, and don't complain when someone warned you it could happen.

I believe that you only cut the front cross member for 4wd vehicles. Just the the ProComp and Fabtech kits, 2wd do not need to cut the front cross member due to the lack of needing to drop the front diff and drive line.

According to the directions, you need to remove the crossmember on the pre-runner also (at least as I read it?).
