Lift Options

I thought I had figured this all out a while back but I guess not. I originally came to the conclusion to get the Toytec OME3-05-AL, but now I am hereing alot about the 5100 Bilstein's. I found it a little hard to believe initially that you could achieve lift from just adding different shocks, but whatever. They both come out to around $300. I would like to everyone's input on both of these options, or other options within the same ballpark ($$$).

I went with the 5100's for ride quality and to level the truck after the TSB for the rear springs.

I don't do any real extreme off roading other than getting to hunting locations and some time in the mountains on established forest roads. No rock crawling type stuff.

I like the way the truck rides. I might add that set on the front to the .85" setting got a full 1" of lift. Lift seems to be approximate and everyone seems to get different results.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thanks for the comments. No, I never pulled the trigger. Got a little destracted after returning from deployment. It's still at the top of the list, just keep buying other shit instead.
