Suggestions for a 3" lift on a 05 4x4

I've been looking around and i cant really find any complete lift kits that really are catching my eye and i dont know enough to create my own. I wouldnt want to spend anymore than $1200 but from what ive been looking at making your own setup is the best bet, any suggestions?

Check out toyteclifts.com. A bunch of us bought lifts from there. They have complete kits or you can build your own.

Toytec is what ive really been looking at. i heard complaints about the ultimate lift kit and lift kits in general, i just want to be able to put bigger tires on, be comfortable and do some offroading but nothing crazy

I have the OME kit with the Dakars and the LR UCA's , I'm very happy with it .

There are lots if guys on here that have the Toytec ULK and are very happy with it too , I just don't have any experience with it .

From what ive seen everyone is all about the total chaos lifts but for one, i dont see a price so im automatically turned off and im not a hardcore offroader so i see no point in it. i dont really know anything about suspension so im having a friend of mine help me install it, just looking for the best bang for my buck and the ome kit looks to be it!

The Bilstein uses an Eibach coil plus the .85" setting to get lift. I believe the Eibach only lifts 1.8XX" so you would still need a small top plate spacer (10mm) to gain the full 3". There are a lot of members that run that combo also with no complaints or issues.
