3" Revtek lift

Was thinking of ordering the 3" revtek spacer and add a leaf kit. I've read hundreds of post regarding these. Just wanted to get some feed back on them from the people that had them or still run them. I have no intentions of going off roading. I am buying this kit to raise it up a little, but bigger rims and tires, and for daily street driving. Inputs please.

Recomendation Blisten 5100's. Adjustable settings to level your truck, that go up to 2.5". Or three if you run them at 0 with eibtechs. And an AAL for the rear. Rides good and is cheaper.

I hate to say it, but someone else will. Search function is your friend. This has been discussed so many times, I'm tired of telling the same story over and over about my old Revtek lift.

Basically, don't get one. Get a real lift and you will save yourself the money in the long run.

I would look into King or Fox for coilovers. Fabtech kinda sucks...

Honestly do the 5100's set them at 2.5, you will be so happy you did. Then just the AAL in the back and your set, should be around 500 for everything then you have the rest for rims and tires and an alignment....

This is pretty much your best option.
