05 4wd tacoma DC LB 3" or 4.5" or 6" lift????

Looking at buying a lift for my 4wd DC LB in about two weeks. Getting lots of different opinions about which way to go since i have a long bed. curious some of the ups and downs and personal experience with either a 3" toytec ultimate package or the new RCD 4.5" that i just read about or some kind of 6" lift. HAven't explored the 6 to much but few people said since its a long bed to do a 6. I will be installing myself and looking to spend around $1000 - $1400 in parts not including wheels and tires. Any sugestions or comments would be awesome. I plan on running 285's or 33's on either a 16 or 17 inch wheel too. Just a little more info for ya. let me know what you think and why that is your choice. Thanks

Don't go above 4.5. The RCD set-up is sick.

I just read the first thread about the 4.5in RCD lift. They are saying it is around $2100.00. I am wanting this too, but will have to buy it piece by peice as I can only afford so much at a time. I am wondering if they will let me do that.

you never know but my guess would be that they only sell it as a complete kit. Might be more parted out.... I was looking at the same kit as well the new 4.5 rcd kit. I talked to my local install shop and they were looking close to 3k installed with tax and an alignment.... Its a hefty price to pay for an extra 1.5 inch of lift... with the revtec kits starting at 339 with the add a leaf option I am wondering is 2500 more bucks worth 1.5 inches? I can get a complete set of wheels, lift for 2k.

thoughts?
