New 3" Lift Kit Suggestions

Hey guys,

I got an 08 short box with the Revtek 3" lift kit and I'm not too happy with it at all. With the pucks in the front and blocks in the rear it rides very rough on the highways. I'm looking for a new suspension lift that is softer and rides a bit nicer down the highways and gravel roads.

Any suggestions as what i should get? What do you guys think of the Toytec lift, the Fabtech lift, or maybe the Pro Comp lift? I would like to keep the 3" lift due to parking in parkades and its cheaper than the 6" lift kits.

Thanks in advance,

Ty.

Toytec will be alot better than fabtech or pro comp. A cheaper alternative would be OME set up, or bilstein with eibachs. Blocks and spacers are absolutely horrible for ride quality.

Or, I will push the new IronMan4x4 lift... it is only a 2" but it is a better lift if you don't have the additional cash for the UCA's.

If you have the dough I would invest in the OME.

A lot of TW members run that kit and love it. It's a complete kit minus new UCA's.

I just installed my Procomp 3" on the weekend and today i'm getting the 280/70/17's.
Despite what people on the forums have been saying, This kit is pretty good and a bit more stiff then the cushy OEM stuff. Mind you these threads are a few years old and I imagine Procomp have fixed any issues because I haven't had any and install was simple.

Tell us a little more about what kind of offroading you will be doing. There are a bunch of solid options out there that will suit you needs better than the spacer lift you have now.

As other said you really cant go wrong with the OME kit which is new shocks, struts the Dakar leaf pack. The next step would be adding an upper control arm, I personally prefer the Camburg arm. The next step up from that would be an adjustable coilover like one from Icon Radflo Fox or King. With some more information we can get you in a kit that will best suit your needs
