newb needs advice!

Looking at getting a 3 inch lift. The one I want is from toytec it has the bilstein shocks and coilovers. Anybody have a clue how this will ride? Will it be close to the stock ride? Not planning on leaving the pavement I just want clearence for 33 all terrains and some new runs.

Your ride will be a bit firmer, but definitely perform better. If you're never going to take it offroad though, you might be just as well off to go with a spacer lift... Save some money anyway

I went with the Bilstein 5100's ($250ish cant really remember) on all 4's.
TSB in the rear (Free)
Eibach Coils ($170ish)
Alignment at the shop ($50)

Got about 2 1/4" out of the lift and 2" out of my tires for a total over 4". I absolutely love the ride. Firmer than stock and rides over bumps holes and bumps perfectly! A whole lot better than stock all for under $500.

Its not 4wd so I might do that. I don't want to void my warranty either.

A spacer lift will ride rough compared to a coil over lift. Not all coils are geared towards off-road use... The Eibach coils do very well on the road and when paired with the 5100's provide a smooth ride on the road and will still take some moderate off roading. I do not off road and went with an Eibach coil lift. The spacers are a waste of money in my opinion unless you just want the absolute cheapest way to raise the truck and are willing to sacrifice the ride.

My set-up: 5100's all 4 corners (fronts set at 0), Eibach coils, TSB rear leaf pack and 1.5" Icon 3-leaf progressive AAL. Overall I gained just under 2" all around.

The lift I'm thinking about getting is about 800 dollars So I definitely will pay more for a smooth ride. Does the 3 inch lift void my warranty?

I don't believe a lift will void your warranty but i'm not an expert on that.

It's a gray area, the dealership will tell you that it will however they have to prove that the lift or any aftermarket accessory caused the warrantable part to fail. Technically it does not void the warranty but you may have to fight a little harder depending on what breaks. Hopefully nothing breaks and it's not an issue.
