Need Help deciding a lift

So I have a few conditions. I want a 2 in lift all around and be able to maintain a somewhat regular ride. I understand it will most likely not feel stock. I would like to do this for around or under $300. Is this possible to add a leaf and coilovers for this price?

For around $300 you can get some 884 or 885 coils with an AAL or Bilstein 5100 shocks that are adjustable and an AAL. Most coilovers are pretty pricey.

I have bilstein shocks already becuase I have a TRD off road.. so all i would need is the 884's and an AAL? This package is suitable? http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

I was referring to the 5100 adjustable shock, much different than the stock off road shocks. But yes the 884s and an AAL will get you around a 2 inch lift. Since you have an access cab you should get somewhere in between 2 and 2.5 inches in the front with the 884s.

If you choose to add the top plate spacers to the 884s you should get closer to 3 inches up front.

Didn't think you could run stock shocks with extended coils

That might explain your crappy ride

Would 5100's be a good option? Or would Fox make something better for the same price?

I'm looking at doing pretty much the same setup as you, from what I've read the 5100's seem like a good option. Btw the truck does look good.
