I have an '09 and I'm installing my lift tomorrow night. I bought the 5100 Bilstein shocks off ebay (Sonny at DownSouth Motorsports). Then I bought the adjustable coilover kit from ToyTec and a rear AAL.

ToyTec sells the 5100 front shocks already mounted on the adjustable coilovers for $799. I bought them all separate (thinking I was saving $200). However, once I bought the additional machined top retaining plate (not necessary - you can use your stock plate and save $140) and had the springs compressed and assembled, I'm probably just a little over the $799. However, for that, I also got the rear 5100s shocks that I'm told ride a lot better than the stock ones.

I am also going to be running 285/75 BFG M/T KM2s on the stock rims. They should be here either tomorrow or Monday. I will have to do some inner fender trimming from what I hear, but these tires are really going to fill out the wheel wells better than the 265/75s.

In order to run the 285s on the stock rims, you'll either need a wheel spacer or get an aftermarket UCA because the tires will rub the stock UCA. So, I bought the Total Chaos UCAs. These will also help correct some alignment issues.

Chris, feel free to chime in here - did I get that all right?

I almost sounded like I knew what I was talking about!!!

Tom Woods CV driveshaft. Spidertrax 1.25" wheel spacers (although not needed due to TC UCA's) sitting on 285/75/16's with factory TRD rims. No diff drop, although I've thought about getting one just to be on the safe side.. but mine doesn't bind or make any noises.
Dood-Diff drop is lke 30 bucks from Toytec- Totally worth it cause it only takes turning it the wrong way ONCE for you to kill a CV boot or whatever.

To the OP- Talk to Neubs about Toytec options- He pointed me in the right direction for what I need to be looking for...and is working ona price for me.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
